When a place puts "oyster" and "sushi" in their name, you expect them to excel in oyster and sushi in both variety and quality. Our party of six ordered a variety of items. The persons who ordered fried seafood enjoyed their meals. There wasn't a selection of raw oysters, just raw oysters. They tasted fresh but they were very small... More

My husband and I were in Corpus Christi Texas for the Texas State Historical Assoc Annual Meeting. We wanted some good, fresh oysters on the half-shell, so we went to the Water Street Oyster Bar! It sounded hopeful!! The oysters were very tiny, much smaller than any Texas oysters we have every ordered, and they were full price!! The oysters... More

I went here 2x within a few days, once for a catered shower and the other for lunch. The ambience in both locations was great. Everyone had a good time and the place looks good for being a restaurant that's been around a while. The catered food was good although the skewered meats were a little too big for finger... More

The food at Water Street was absolutely fabulous. If you like oysters this is the place to eat. We ate the bar and was pleasantly surprised how wonderful the service was. We are from out of town and ate there on a Thursday night and it was packed. At the bar you sit close to your neighbor so if you... More

Water Street Oyster Bar has been a favorite spot in Corpus Christi for years. The years are beginning to show on the restaurant, but the big chalk board has still got a list of the fresh catches and the shrimp and oysters are very good. My favorite is the coconut shrimp and the caldo (soup) with the Aztec name. A... More

The restaurant is visually stimulating with it's decor and art work. It's clean with comfortable seating. Our waitress was kind, caring, and attentive. I had blackened drum. My husband had tuna. Both dishes were fresh and delicious. Food was plenty. We received our meal with a side salad which was fresh. The walnut dressing that I was afraid of turned... More

On Valentine's Day, we decided to eat lunch while we were visiting in Corpus Christi. We tried one restaurant that we had eaten before and was always satisfied. This day, because we didn't have reservations, we were treated like they didn't want us there. After waiting for 15 minutes, we left and drove to Water Street. We were greeted with... More

Stopped in here for lunch on our way out after visiting North Beach and wish we had started with this place. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Our waitress "Kristen" was super friendly and helpful. Fresh grilled tuna and bacon wrapped filet. Wedge salad and crab stuffed mushrooms. we will return to dine here every trip to... More
