“Great Seafood Best Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were in Port Aransas for a watercolor workshop and our group went here among others one night after our "happy hour". I had the scallops and they were perfect. I also captured a wonderful sunset from their patio which I plan to paint soon. BenK

“Nice view of the sail boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

The redeeming quality of this restaurant is a nice view and relaxed dining area. The food isn’t much, if any better, than other local restaurants but it does have a nice atmosphere and is particularly suited for couples or adults wanting an enjoyable meal with friends. This doesn’t imply that families wouldn’t enjoy it as well.

“Excellent Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The food at Trout's is so good we ate there twice! On our first visit we enjoyed the yellowfin tuna and on the second, the shrimp. The restaurant is usually pretty full, but reservations are not necessary. The drinks were delicious also... Another must visit eating establishment in Port A.

“Had the special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

My husband and I have eaten here with others, but this is the first time by ourselves and in the "off season.". Our waiter made recommendations, was attentive without hovering, and had a good sense of humor. As always, the food was very tasty. We will eat here again the next time we are in Port Aransas.

“Reliable Quality and Unbeatable Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We have tried most of the restaurants in Port Aransas, but the food at Trout Street is always very good. Service there is also second to none. What could be better after a day at the beach than a nice seafood dinner? That's what you get with no waiting after Labor Day. It's the ideal way to top off a vacation day. The only thing that continues to be a little off is their Piña Colada mixer. It just tastes weird. If those were better, as in made of fresh ingredients, I would have no problem giving this restaurant five stars.
