Makes you want to go every day! Great blackened fish and fish platter fried. Love the new colorful floors and cannot beat eating out on the pier. Great view and great fun. Super lunch prices on the specials. Great waiter too!!

“Delicious, entertaining, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

First time to this area and staying at KOA for the winter. Have tried a few restaurants on the Island and although they are really good, Pier 19 is really GREAT and our favorite place! Remodeled first week of December and now it's really cool to look at! Has a "more refined" feel to it now. Every meal and appetizer has been excellent and the staff are just super attentive to their guests. Prices are very reasonable as well. Looking forward to many, many meals while here in South Padre' Island. You won't be disappointed!

“Great food and view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Dine right on the water. Plan a meal around a dolphin watch or eco tour on the Osprey. Great staff, our waiter even suggested ordering a basket instead of the combo meal to save a couple of bucks. Happy hour margaritas were good too! Coconut shrimp were large and very tasty!

“Anniversary Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

This was by far the best food of our trip. We ate here for our anniversary dinner. It was the best choice. I had the Diablo Shrimp and the Coconut Shrimp. I would recommend these. I'm not a big shrimp eater but I was that night!!! My husband had the sampler and he loved it, but it is a lot of food. The atmosphere is great and the staff were wonderful. Our waiter was Edwin (I believe that's his name) and he was spectacular. He was very informative and personable. We really enjoyed talking to him. The bartender, which I didn't get his name, was also great. We enjoyed the entire experience, highly recommend this restaurant, and will be back when we return to SPI.
