“The breeze, the view, the atmosphere...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

What a great outdoor restaurant. The breeze, the view and the overall atmosphere can't be beat.....!

We opted for a couple of what should have been inexpensive meal alternatives, but there's really nothing inexpensive on the regular menu. Hey, you're in a resort town, what did you expect?

All the above having been said, would we come here again? YES!... "The breeze, the view and the overall atmosphere" made for an excellent experience.

Thank you.

“Great place but needs a real dinner menu.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

My wife ate here last night. The food was great and the service was excellent. She had fried shrimp with fries and I had a crab cake appetizer a salad and a bacon cheese burger with fries. All excellent. But this was dinner. When we first sat down I thought we had the wrong menu. We ate here last year and had an excellent steak. This is a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view if the gulf but it was pretty empty. We like coming here and would eat more often if they had a real dinner menu. This one of the best restaurants in South Padre it just needs to have a real dinner menu.

“Beachside View Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We loved the setting - nicely covered outside area with a good view of the Gulf. A little small and cozy, but very comfortable. The grouper basket was good, but not as good as what we had at another area restaraunt. If visiting SPI, it's worth a visit.

“The best restaurant at the Island.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I will never be tired of having breakfast, lunch or dinner at this restaurant. The service is excellent, the food outstanding and they have one of the best locations in the Island.
