Corpus doesn't have much in the way of 'fine dining', but this is definitely my recommendation for anyone who appreciates excellent food! It is very casual, not at all pretentious, but everything we have tried here is simply wonderful! IT is very eclectic with everything...More

I found Dragonfly with the TA app so I expected some degree of quality. I was surprised, however, by the cool, laid-back beach-vibe that delivered excellent service and solid fare. If you find yourself in the area, Dragonfly is a good choice.

This place is a great place for a nice quality dinner. The staff are awesome, and the food is delicious. A must visit place in the island of Corpus Christi. I will be back. Don't for get the drinks, great selection.

The dry aged steaks are phenomenal!!! I go there just for the ribeye. 24 to 42 oz. pieces of perfection. Some of the best steak I have ever had. Come early though, as the people on the island fall on them like they're starving, lol.

We just moved to Padre Island and have been trying out all the neighborhood restaurants and had lunch at Dragonfly. The goat cheese salad (a large green salad with three slices of decadent goat cheese topped bread) was sublime. The enchiladas (a special,that day) were...More

Sit at the bar so you can interact with the bartender. Very knowledgeable of what is going to be the best food for the evening. They hand mix your drinks to order. Try the Mojitos. But, only a couple. These drinks will sneak up on...More

Dragonfly is the one place we have to eat dinner when in Corpus Christi. And every time we have been very pleased. They usually have great specials but my go-to are the fish tacos. This time they were perfection as always. My husband had ahi...More

Crab cakes were fair! They were deep fried so the top was way over done! The sweet potato plantain was decent tasting but like the crab cake was fried to much! I didn't like how they charge $2.00 to substitute side dishes with the expensive...More
