We wanted to try something local and not a tourist spot. We found it!! Great atmosphere and even better food. Loved the Homemade potato chips the bring out with your drinks. We both had the Mahi (mine grilled his blackened) with grilled shrimp. Great rice pilaf and mixed vegetables were cooked to perfection. We will definitely return to this jewel.

We had fish dinners at the Saltwater Grill and found it a very pleasant meal and informal. The food was good, a very nice amount and reasonably priced Equally important, the waitress was extremely nice and accommodating.

The food is very tasty here and they do an outstanding catering business including my recent high school reunion and another high school reunion just before mine. The owners are great and do a super job running the restaurant. For price comparisons, they are a little cheaper than the typical seafood restaurants in town. Our favorite waitress is Brittany Church.... More

Decided to look up something local and not touristy. Found it. Great place. Mahi Mahi was very fresh as were the shrimp. Will definitely come back.

Family visited this restaurant for lunch. Even though the fish tacos were recommended, they were tasteless and dry. I ate the flounder which was good but asked that the waiter to box half of it for home and he threw it away. It was a $ 20.00 lunch meal. I will not return.

We decided to look up reviews before we made trips to tourist traps or self serve diners. We found the hidden gem in Corpus. We were seated right away, ordered, and received our order within 15 minutes. I ordered the $6 special strawberry margarita, which was AMAZING. Definitely worth the price. My husband and I both got the fish and... More

My husband and I have tried to get into this restaurant several times but there was always a long wait. Finally, we were able to arrive at a reasonable time, 6:30 PM on a Friday, and were seated right away. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired as it is noisy, crowded and seemed like more of a sports bar... More

Wife and I ended up here as the number one rated local fresh fish restaurant in the area had a two hour wait. The raspberry tea they tried to create for the wife was literally tasteless. The chicken diablo was a great tasting appetizer and they were able to throw a special diet plate together for myself with the Tuna... More

I have eaten here twice. Both times I felt I got a very good meal and wonderful service. The outside is not impressive, it is part of a small strip mall and very plain. Inside is basic but the food is very good. I have had grilled redfish both times. The most recent was served with pasta and was nice... More

We went here after reading all the great reviews. The service and atmosphere were great. I ordered the special, which was blackened red fish with grilled asparagus and rice pilaf. It was around $19 for the plate. The "filet" would have barely fed my two year old. It was very tiny. There were literally three pieces of barely cooked asparagus... More
