We just got back from Roosevelt's Restaurant and are stunned at just how mediocre the fare was at this #1 rated Port Aransas restaurant. The crab cake appetizer was so over-spiced with pepper that you couldn't taste anything but heat. The drum was cooked nicely and was a really nice piece of fish. Unfortunately, the "blackened" spice mixture was primarily salt ... way too much salt! Lastly, the filet was cooked correctly (rare) but, actually, was so thin (1/2 inch thick) that it really didn't even seem like a filet. The mushroom sauce for the steak was very nice, though.
The service was friendly and the atmosphere quite pleasant, but for $120 (with tip) it was a most mediocre experience. The Cafe Phoenix, currently rated #2 for Port Aransas restaurants, was a MUCH better experience in a similar price range!
