I grew up in Corpus Christi and always return to Water Street every time I'm back in town. The servers, bar none, are the best in town. Always friendly, always quick! The food is great, their house walnut dressing is fantastic, with great rotating daily specials. It's a little pricey, but worth it. Come early or expect a wait.

Great service..this may be the hardest working staff in the USA! I hope management appreciates how hard and well they work! Atmosphere is loud, crowded, and stressful. Food is just so average and maybe I just ordered poorly? The coconut shrimp was good. Had a horrible and small shrimp po boy...half the size of a NOLA po boy but same... More

Every time I visit this place I try to remember to get something new that I have not tried before. This time around I had their BBQ Salmon Salad. I highly recommend it. Our service was great and the food is delicious.

The restaurant was very accommodating if you wanted to add something or substitute something on your plate. The poorboy sandwiches were good, there were several items to choose from. The homemade walnut dressing was very good.

I had the fried shrimp and rice pilaf combo with a side salad. The shrimp and the rice were great. The honey mustard dressing contained washabi and since I cannot eat anything overly spicy, I did not finish my salad. The waiter seemed nonchalant about the spicy dressing and dismissed it by saying he didn't know because he didn't eat... More

Great at the door with a smile and shown to our table. We don't eat a lot of fried food but occasionally get the urge for fried oysters. Two orders of fried oysters, fries, wife had salad, and I had seafood gumbo. Gumbo was some of the best I have ever had, Oysters were great but not large like west... More

Located in downtown Corpus Christi, TX. Anytime we are in the Corpus area, we find the time to visit Water Street. Their seafood is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. I always have to eat their seafood gumbo. My husband enjoys the fried oysters. Many other choices. An interesting ambiance and the service is great.

Quick trip to Corpus--found Water Street on Trip Advisor and thought I would give it a try. We were not disappointed. Dined early on a Sunday evening. Place was largely empty only a few tables of people when we arrived. Service was quick. Ordered raw oysters--which were fresh and very good. Wedge Salad was delicious. Entrée ordered was the Mahi...

I love to hate on Corpus for crappy selection in non-Mexican or BBQ food, even though it is getting better. However, Water Street has always been the exception to that. It's great, fresh seafood at a reasonable price with a casual atmosphere. There's not many top notch places to eat you can stroll into wearing either flip-flops & shorts or... More

I was so disappointed in the long time staple of CC, Water Street. They are riding a wave of the past, and the wave "closes out on you"! and your left sucking water! That's what I'm talking about. The place is no longer riding, it's sucking'
