We went on Seafood & Prime rib Buffet night (Friday) hoping for some fresh seafood...it was just ok. Not too many things to pick from, but the shrimp diablos are DELICIOUS! Not worth the price we paid! Service was good.

We lived in Harlingen, Texas for a few years and loved coming to the island and dining at Palm Street Pier and listening to J. Micheal Lafferty.

We recently vacationed to the area and were told that Lafferty had started his own enterprise; Padre Rita Ville. We were extremely excited to give it all try,but boy were we disappointed.

The service was terrible, the waiter overcharged us for our meal, argued about what he served us, complained when we requested re-fills and then attempted to re-charge us after we had already paid!!

If that wasn't bad enough we had to wait over an hour for our food, which was very mediocre and overpriced. I love J Micheal Lafferty and his music but even that wasn't near enough to rescue the evening.

The setting and ambiance were indicative of a lively and fun establishment but the food and especially the service were among the worst we have ever encountered. Looks like it will be Palm St. Pier from here on out for at least this family.
