Came here for our last night at south padre island and probably the top on our list for places to eat. Good seafood, pasta, and burgers. Margaritas are very strong so be careful!

Not sure what to expect on an old pier, we walked back into a narrow hole and were seated next to a bay-window with a beautiful view of the ocean. My pre-school grandchildren wore paper Pirate hats and were thrilled at watching pelicans and seagulls fly next to the pier and land on posts just outside our window. Food was... More

Service was really good-our waiter was X & he was very helpful in addressing questions we had about the menu. My husband & I both had Po'Boys & were intrigued by the chipotle crab mayo described on the menu, turns out it was imitation crab & that was disappointing.

The waiter was sweet,... More

I ate here with my boyfriend for the first time today. The service was both inept and extremely rude! We were not given silverware, so after waiting a long time my boyfriend had to go get it at the bar.

The food price is average, quality ok, but main thing is the sunset sea view. Kids place, relax, not much room inside, easy to hit each other.

Great food and atmosphere! Best food we had in SPI. Pirate ship arrives at 7:30, which was fun for the kids. Definitely recommend.
