“Great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Haven't been to South Padre in awhile and this time came with two kids. Tried Louie's-was horrible! This place was very inviting and even had high chairs for our two little ones. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was relaxing. The food was the best you can get on the water for the price on that side of the bridge. Good music to boot. We will definitely be back.

“Best Shrimp Scampi Ever! Daily specials.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We came here a couple of years ago.. We come here for the view of the bay and great service. We came here on two separate occasions. The first time we visited our server was Lorena. She was subpar not very personable. We ordered the Ceviche and it was great. We gave her a $10 tip for a $24 bill! No thank you no nothing! We decide to go up to the bar because of the service. We met Jessica and she was real cool and friendly. The second time we visited Suzy was our server I believe. She was very friendly and the service as great. We and ordered two servings of the Shrimp Scampi. Oh my gosh it was the best we ever had. We will be back.

“Great little spot on the bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

We had lunch here a couple of weeks ago. Like Louie's down the street, Palm Street Piers offers food, music and a nice view on the bayside of South Padre Island.

Though not as large as Louie's, the food was pretty good.

It's a great place to sit and relax either for lunch or for having a cold beer, watching the sun set over Laguna Madre.

If you do eat, try the Shrimp Veracruz Cocktail. Absolutely delicious. Just the right hint of spiciness and flavor. Yummm-oh.

Prices were very reasonable.

We will return

“Renewed our wedding vows on this Pier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had a group of friends who referred us to come for the Open Mic on Sunday. Mark enjoyed playing and singing with Hector Guzman's group - a great time!!! We met the bar manager, Jessica who welcomed my husband and I to return. She took a video of us as we exchanged our wedding vows and rings. One of our favorites on the island!
