My wife had been here before although it was my first time. Well pleased. We sat on the open shaded deck right above the water where the recreational fishing boats were leaving out and returning to the launch ramp. Remarkable views and very bearable in the south Texas summer heat with a mild breeze coming off the water. The artichoke crab dip was out of this world! We also split a blue cheese burger which was more than plenty for us.

Their food is good but not great. The waitress never looked at us when taking our order and was hard to get her to refill tea or get more drinks.

Let me start by saying that we have been Paradise Key fans since they were located on Key Allegro—so I’m not saying we will not try them again but.....our visit tonight was very disappointing.
We arrived about 7:30 and were seated right away—outside as requested. We waited for about 10 minutes before someone came to take our drink orders—and we gave our dinner orders at that time. (3 salads and a chicken dish).
After more than an hour we were told our food would be right out. It didn’t come for quite some time after that.
The food was delicious—even though we were being devoured by mosquitoes while we ate.
The waitress checked with the manager who, because of the ridiculous wait, gave us 10% off our overall bill—which was also disappointing. Obviously poor management or supervision was the problem. We didn’t need excuses but it might have been nice if someone had told us what the problem was. There was almost no one in the restaurant and there appeared to be an adequate staff.
As I said, for our last evening of our August Rockport adventure, it was a bad night at Paradise Key. We own property here, love supporting Rockport as it recovers!!—and will return again and will hope for the best.

We wanted to drive up to Rockport and see how the town was rebuilding from Harvey and decided to check out this restaurant. The restaurant is right on the bay and has some awesome views. We sat near the windows and could see out into the bay. I started off with a cup of shrimp gumbo that was really good. My wife had the crab cake and I had the lunch shrimp. The shrimp and crab cakes were delicious but I would liked to have more on the plate. We finished our meal with a piece fo their key lime pie, which was very good. Our waitress was training a new hire and had tables spread all over the large restaurant so our service was a little slow, but we didn't mind since we had a great view.

Overall worth a trip back in the future.
