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'

You would think Corpus Christi would have super seafood but this place is one of the best in town. Love the Pecan incrusted fried oysters.

I was in Corpus on business and wanted good, fresh seafood. Water Street was recommended. We arrived late on a Monday night and it was about half full. Most people were on the bar side watching football. We ordered one dozen oysters and a plate of calamari to start. The oysters were excellent, some of the best I have had.... More

The company I fly for occasionally goes to Corpus Christi for business, and if we have time we usually make it a point to take a crew car from the airport out to Water Street. The last few time I have eaten there I ordered fish (which is good as well!). This time around I tried their "Surf and Turf"... More

This is one of the most consistent restaurants in Corpus Christi. Whether you eat at this restaurant or there almost identical restaurant next door, it is a great place to have the best seafood in town. Instead of offering farm raised Tilapia that I don`t care for, they are always offering fresh fish. I have noticed that their pricing is... More

We ate here sunday night and we really liked the food. I had the pasta alfredo with shrimp and it was light and good. Others had fried sea food platter and all of it was cooked perfectly. Waitress was fantastic and was always around if we needed something. A little on the high side for dinners but it was the... More
