The Harbor Grill gets good reviews for good reason. The food is really good! The only thing wrong with our visit was the timing. We showed up on a Friday night around 8pm and were told it would be a 30 to 40 minute wait...More

We had the fried flounder which was delicious. They also make a smoked fish dip that is fantastic. Fresh shrimp is also available whether fried or steamed. Great place for lunch.

Harbor Lights is a great place by the marina in Port Aransas. They serve unbelievable nachos, tasty fish and scrumptious sandwiches. Next door is the Back Porch which is fun bar. The view is so serene and you might even spot a dolphin.

Decent food, mostly fried. Next door to an open air bar that's located next to the marina. Good atmosphere. Take out only.

Mostly fried seafood but very good, especially if you're sitting at the bar next door. The bar is an open air bar that fronts the marina. Fried shrimp is crispy and cooked just right. French fries are ok, but nothing special. Overall, I would recommend...More
