You won't be disappointed if you are a fan of fresh seafood. The fresh oysters were amazing, so fresh & nicely served. Great staff, extensive menu & traditionally decorated.

The restaurant itself had a great presentation and atmosphere. The staff was also great, very attentive and friendly. However the food a bit pricey for what seemed average when it came to taste. I am glad I tried it, but probably won't go back again.

My wife ate so much during the day that we wanted a small low key dinner so we chose sushi/rolls. There was quite a few people there last night which was expected with it being Saturday. They said the wait was 20-25 minutes but only had to wait 12 minutes. Ordered two different types of rolls asks had bread and... More

Great for a date night or lunch with the office. We took the kids but it wasn't much of a hit but the husband and I enjoy the environment.

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
