“Great Island Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Don't let the outside appearance fool you! Looks like it could be housed in an converted Dairy Queen, but that's where the similarity ends. Good wine selection. Based on what we saw go out to tables while waiting at the bar, it looks like they have some excellent choices in mixed drinks, but we stuck with the wine. We did get "shushed" by the waiter for talking during his presentation of the specials (okay, not "sushed" but we did get an, "excuse me" which is the more polite version). But, his attention for the rest of the evening made up for that little bit. I had the rib-eye, which was excellent and cooked to the correct temp and the grilled asparagus was spot on!. Another at the table had the filet and lobster tail and received rave reviews. All seafood came out perfect. There was one little hiccup, as the waiter explained that my wife's dish was late to the table because the expediter was not happy and had them remake it. Nice for the attention to detail, but it left the rest of the table waiting for the last dish to be finished. (After a moment, my wife convinced all that it was okay to start without her - probably after she decided to sample my asparagus). All-in-all an excellent experience!

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The service was wonderful from the time we stepped it to the time we left! We went as a large group with two toddlers and our waiter was amazing! Then our food arrived... YUM! Put it over the top, flavors and steak pref was on the dot! Hats off the ladies and gentlemen that work at Liam's! We can't wait to go back!

“Pretty Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Our family went to Liam’s on a Thursday evening during June 2014. They were busy but we found a table right away. We had two appetizers – calamari and shrimp dip. Both were good. For dinner – two of us had the NY strip and lobster. The NY strip was the best steak I have had in a while. The lobster was good- not overcooked. My wife had the special stuff Flounder – she said it was delicious. The forth family member had the prime rib and grilled shrimp. The prime rib was excellent and grilled shrimp was average. All-in-all – a very nice place to dine but a little pricey for SPI. That being said – I would definitely return and strongly recommend Liam’s as a nice place for dinner.

“Great evening!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Amazing meal at Liam's....finest we have had in South Padre. We had a variety of selections at our table and everything was over the top delicious.... Lobster bisque, crab cakes, filet, stuffed shrimp and salmon. Then topped off with the incredible strawberry cheesecake. Oh my!!! All this was made more special by our favorite waitress, Julieta. We went just because of her...this is third restaurant to which we have followed her.
Great food, good folks, evening to remember
