“lunch on the bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

my wife and i had lunch overlooking the bay just over the causeway on s padre island dr. their prices have good up and the portion of fish was smaller, but over all the food was very good and the margaritas during happy hour were only $2 were great. they also served a fresh, hot loaf of bread which was excellent. no air conditioning but the view and margaritas made it a worth while lunch.

“Long wait/good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This was recommended to us for good local seafood. We waited about an hour, which is what we were told the wait would be. They had live music playing, open to the gulf (no air conditioning), relaxed setting, good food, friendly service. Food was a little pricey for our large family, but we left full and satisfied.

“Great music! Food was OK.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Food was good with OK service. We had snow crab legs and they was average. Apetizers were great. Service was spotty. To be fair we were there during what was thier busy period (sunset). What made this a true pleasure rather than an average meal with an excellent view was the live music. One performer at a time with an acoustic guitar (woman then a man) played many of my favorite songs plus some I havent heard in years. The Woman was the Best of the two IMO.

“Great way to end a mini-vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Great staff, great view, great food. The house dressing is wonderful: a bit of sweet and a bit of heat, and the flounder stuffed with crab in butter sauce (get it with the dirty rice) will have you reaching for your cholesterol meds, but happily. Even if you have to make two passes over the bridge to get to it (you can see it, you just have to take the correct Intercoastal exit to get there), well worth the trip.
