“Decent food, terrible wait staff.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Neat location. You can see the beach and ocean while you eat. We had breakfast here and took our children. We basically had the place to ourselves. It took FOREvER to get waited on ( and remember, the place was basically empty.) We had omlets and breakfast tacos that were tasty. Our son ordered chocolate milk and a pancake. The pancake was huge, but very bland and the chocolate milk wasn't very chocolaty. We spent $30 for all 3 of us and I probably wouldn't go back.

“Not impressed with service to slobbering drunks”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

First off, the kids working this joint need to learn when to cut a customer off the alcohol. When a man falls 3 times walking out...he should have been denied alcohol long before. Shameful for this to go on in a "kid friendly" restaurant. Next, the menu is short and offers little variety. Next, there are no kids menus. Last, the atmosphere (minus the beach view) is one of a run down shack. If you want a family friendly meal...keep driving.

“Casual Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Breakfast, lunch & dinner was all good. Atmosphere was great. One night they had live music. Casual & laid back.

“Great Breakfast...Who Knew?”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We've been coming to Port Aransas for years and never knew The Beach Lodge serves a really good breakfast. We didn't stay in the hotel so I can only comment on the breakfast. We're happy with the great find. The beach location is perfect for watching the water. I had the super taquitos..very tasty, and my husband had the pancake with sausage patty. His huge pancake was excellent and the sausage was slightly spicy and very good. We will be back!

“Had to walk out hungry”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Not our first visit so we were looking forward to great food. Understaffed meant we waited for over 30 minutes to place our food order only to be told 45 minutes later they were out of oysters. When told them to close our ticket they brought excellent shrimp basket and a stale grilled cheese and nothing nut apologies for the other four orders. Sadly the waitress/bartender/hostess/busser was quick with a recommendation of another restaurant. Great atmosphere and could be an award winning hot spot with their beach access. Too bad we won't be back.
