My husband and I were in town visiting our friends who live in the area. We expressed that we love seafood, and they suggested we go to Water Street as they dine there often and enjoy the food. One of their friends met us for dinner, and so for a table of 5 we were told to expect a half... More

The food was excellent and the fish was so fresh and delicious. My only complain was the slow service, which might be because it was a little crowded. In general, I liked the food and the environment!

We eagerly visited WSOB on a Sunday evening - my mother very excited as this was her favourite restaurant 30 years prior and always visits when she’s back in Corpus. As such, we made a reservation because we remember it could get busy – we were right. Unfortunately the very rude attendant at front desk said we didn’t have one... More

David was our server and he talked to us about the local attractions to see and made us feel at home. I had ordered sushi which was fresh and delicious but the fried cheesecake made my meal. Very yummy!!! My son had ordered the Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich and it was cooked perfectly. Great service, Great food what more can... More

Thought we were going to the Water Street Seafood, but instead went to the Water Street Oyster and Sushi Bar. The Oyster bar is out front and the Seafood restaurant was in back. The other tables seemed to get pretty good service. Ours was poor (at best). The food was OK, but the menu we expected was not there.

Kids menu is not online, but very kid friendly! The bacon stuffed shrimp is the best!! I split the sampler and ordered extra shrimp, and bought the almond dressing to take home! Price was gray for the quality of food!

We missed their presence in our city so we eat here when we are in Corpus. Food is always good. Service is always good. There can be a wait on weekends. Just have a drink in one of the bars in either restaurant and to be seated and enjoy your meal.

Awesome food and great service. We went here with our kids, aged 4 and 6, after a day at the beach. The staff was accommodating and the food was delicious. Best oysters we've had in Texas!

Not to mention a nice selection of beers. This place is easy to get to and very friendly. I ate at the regular bar, they have a sushi bar also. I was there for happy hour and had great brews and discounted oysters on the half shell (shucked right in front of me) and 3 orders of nigiri, which was... More

The staff was extremely friendly making you feel at home. The oysters were very fresh and clean. Had a great time and will be going back. The décor is very pleasing and extremely clean. If you find the front full with a long line or if you want quieter surroundings for more intermit dinning there is another restaurant in the... More
