“Great little place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This place is SMALL. Only 8 or 9 tables total, and not enough room for large parties....but, if you want a great meal you have to try this place. The gyro and thunderbird are superb!! I believe they're only open for lunch though.

“Outstanding dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Small, intimate but noisy. Kitchen spills into dining area, as does its smoke and cooking odors. Food is spectacular. Maybe the best in Port Aransas. Pricey. Parking is awful.

“Always good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Great food, but if you order an appetizer, get it at the same time as your meal. Long wait! Food was fabulous. Tempura veggies were wonderful! We love this place. We were given a complimentary dessert ( luscious coconut cream pie) because of our wait.

“Will never try this place!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We have tried 3x to get to this place. It's not open on S/M and we tried to walk in at 1:28pm on a Tuesday and our "greeter" said she had to ask the cooks if we could be let in. Huh?! The sign says they are open until 2pm. We determined they are no longer worth it. We ate at Beaches Cafe and Bakery and it was great! Our waiter was very nice and it was worth every penny! Thank you Beaches for taking our $$ and giving us great customer service!
