This is one of my favorites! Always a good meal, whether Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. We take out of towers here to experience true South Padre Island hospitality and good eats.

Boats pull right up to the dock and folks come in for drinks and eats. Not a huge menu, but enough variety. I had Shrimp Cocktail Veracruz and blackened shrimp tacos. Both... More

Good Food, although mostly fried food . The decore was very rustic with wooden benches and needed some updating. I loved the view at sunset and the location was nice near the water!

This a a great establishment to watch the sunset, listen to great music and enjoy really good food. The best fish tacos I have ever had. The entertainment starts around 7PM so you can enjoy it while you have dinner watching the sunset. Loved this place and will be going back very soon.
