Food is OK, menu does not offer a lots of choices. No Crab nor lobster. We waited for a hour to get the table for our group (of 16). We waited for at least another hour for our food to be served. People left, one by one, and we still not have our food. And guess what, they missed one... More

Water Street Seafood makes Corpus a destination. I stay in Corpus and drive to events/appointments up to an hour+ away just to eat here while in town. I am a simple man: good martinis, great seafood, energetic staff. I sit at the bar for prompt service. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, at least that's my experience... More

The oysters and crab are amazing. Service is fast and friendly. A little pricey. Nice atmosphere and close marina.

A friend told us about Water Street Seafood - highly recommended it. It was across from the parking lot of our hotel, so we were able to just walk over there. The service was great - even though it got very busy before we left. We got salads with the walnut dressing - ordered one entree from the blackboard -... More

I had read several positive reviews of Water Street Seafood, which may have clouded my expectations. My husband and I ate there for dinner on a Saturday night. We had taken a sunset harbor cruise prior to dinner and arrived around 9 PM. The restaurant didn't seem busy and we were seated immediately, which was nice. Our waiter told us... 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.

I usually dine alone, so I'm used to getting shuttled to the bar or other area of a restaurant since my ticket will not normally produce a giant tip. This restaurant got off to a great start by allowing me to sit in the middle of all the action. Service was perfect. My server, Lora, greeted me with a smile,... More

We have eaten at Water Street more than any other restaurant downtown. Over a year ago, their quality had really slipped. But now they are back on top. Reliably good seafood every time. Stick with the blackboard specials; they are excellent. The shrimp picayune is a wonderful appetizer that I get for my entree when I don't want a full... More

This place served up some fresh, creative seafood dishes. The portions were so large, I kind of wish they were smaller so I didn't feel so miserable afterwards. This restaurant is pretty expensive, but my husband likes to treat himself while on vacation. By the way, the service was excellent.

We did have an unusually bad experience. Poor service, she'll in our oyster, wrong food, over cooked steak, and no condiments. But with all that I would say the quality of food is what we keep us from recommending this place. It was just not very good. I was expecting more. Everything was just so/so. Nothing fancy. And the prices... More
