Excellent food. My husband's favorite is the Large Seafood Platter. He has a healthy appetite and always has to get a to go box. My favorite is the Shrimp Diablo. You more than get your money's worth. It is a comfortable casual atmosphere with delicious food and friendly attentive staff. After dinner you can take a stroll out on the... More

We would eat at different place in Padre Island but this place by far was the best! The food was great and so was the atmosphere!

3 words - Mexican Shrimp Cocktail!!! Delicious!!! Huge!!! This could be a meal by itself. One big plus for Pier 19 is that they serve fresh, local fish. I had the lunch grouper which was tasty. The rice and veggie sides left a lot to be desired - I would pick different items next time. Hubby had fried coconut shrimp... More

This restaurant was a very good place to eat. It was a little hard finding a parking place, but I guess that is an indication that it's a popular place to dine. We also enjoyed the views of the bay with the pelicans and seagulls providing great entertainment. Oh yes, the musician/soloist was excellent, too.

Very laid back atmosphere, friendly people and great service. The kids loved the pirate ship show off the dock. It is located next to all the boats that go out for fishing and touring.

We had our first vacation dinner here at Pier 19 and it did not disappoint! Food was excellent with big portions and the views were incredible! We found a coupon for a free appetizer so dinner for 3 was $50 but we had so much food leftover!

Absolute best location and service! Our waiter was awesome! He also recommended the Baja Shrimp Tacos and I gotta say they were magnificent! The kids loved this place though it was super cool!

We had our RV at the KOA campground adjacent to Pier 19 The restaurant in many ways is typical of a "pier" restaurant - water views, seafood focus. This restaurant has both combined with really good service. I especially appreciate a restaurant that takes care to avoid shellfish contamination as my wife is quite allergic. The server, after taking the... More
