Respite After a Difficult Trip

We arrived in Corpus right after the major rain storm. Streets were all flooded, the interstate was backed up, cars were reportedly under water. Took us 2 hours to get from the outskirts to our Bayfront hotel. Our first stop was Water Street Oyster Bar and Grille. After a tough trip - what a... read more

Be ready to wait, but it's worth it. I make the best fried shrimp, but Water Street came in a close second because I didn't have to fix it myself. The food was excellent, the service great. Highly recommend

I had read the reviews and had mixed feelings if we should go or not. I am glad we did! We had a Wave Runner to drink- Yummy! Rockerfeller Oysters and Shrimp Picayune. The two of these could have been enough for the two of us to eat, however we also got the Fried Gulf Sampler. We both were so... More

This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The food was good and so was the service. The staff was very friendly and the drinks and food arrived really quickly. The fried shrimp and oysters were really good and the blue crab cakes were fabulous. I highly recommend this place. They do have a complete seafood menu... More

I was told about this place from a local co-worker and decided to try it for lunch. I am not a very adventursome seafood eater, but I ordered the wedge salad and crab cakes with french fries. I sat at the bar, since I was by myself and the service was great and and the meal was good.

This was a great fine dining experience. The lady and I went for dinner. The dining room is a big box but is done well with the space. The food was excellent and our server was nice.
