Try the duck

Great food for a Monday night. Has the duck with deep fried spinach. The spinach was really good, even though I don't like spinach. Will go back next time in town.

Food and service was good, but my sea bass was initially significantly under-cooked. Nice atmosphere

Excellent service, very good food. Great for special occasions. The only real problem I have, is I like eating out with my children and they lack a children's menu.

The ambiance, the food, the drinks and the service were excellent! Although pricey for our range it is definitely an option for when we are need of a special occasion. We always recommend it to those who are in search of something different, special and delicious. We have not been able to sit outside due to the weather on the... More

This is the first time I have ever clicked on "one of the best meals ever in a restaurant. We came here with a sister in law who lives in Brownsville. We were a family group of ten and only one person had any complaint. That was with the duck. Most of us had seafood and felt our meal was... More

As good a meal and dining experience as you'll have in major U.S. cities. Excellent service too. My halibut was cooked to perfection and so was my friend's New York Strip. Very nice wine selection and beautiful decor, too. Easily the best restaurant in Brownsville and one of the finest in the Rio Grande Valley and South Padre Island.

The best restaurant in Brownsville and one of the top five in the Valley. The service is impeccable, the restaurant is managed very well, the food is top notch across the menu, and the location is perfect. It is one of the few waterside restaurants not on the island - making full and perfect use of its setting along beautiful... More

Had a great experience when I had dinner here. The food tasted great and the staff was very attentive. The restaurants ambiance was also great. Dim lights helped create an intimate setting and there is a great view of the resaca as well as a great looking patio. The prices are high in relation to other Brownsville restaurants however they...

Best meal in the RGV!!!! I've been there twice and each meal was wonderful. I had the Seared Sea Scallops, Caramelized Onions And White Wine Sauce and it was great! We also had a bottle of Prisoner which is a red wine. For dessert, we ordered the traditional Crème Brulee that was out of this world! There were 9 of... More
