“Good steaks but rest of the menu is shaky”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

This is a place that is owned by a long time island singer. So every night has some type of entertainment. The wait staff is great and very helpful with menu choices. It just misses excitement that makes you want to come in more than once a year.

“Not good at all ”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Just not good at all. Service was good but that's it. Restaurant was decorated like a joke, seating was lawn furniture (I wish I was joking) and the food was just bad. The outside makes you want to try this place but do yourself a favor and don't. Too many other good places to eat.

“Never again”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I didn't like the country music. The buffet was over priced for the quality of the food. I won't be eating here again.

“Good but nothing out of the ordinary”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This was our second trip to South Padre. We had enjoyed Padre Rita Grill last year so went back. We went for their noon enchilada special which was delicious. Our service that day was good. Otherwise, the dining area is a bit noisy and their regular menu is just average.

“Ho-hum”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

This was our second trip to the restaurant. We went with a group of six for lunch. They offer a special each day as well as a lunch menu. Our group ordered a burger, nachos, the soup/salad bar and the fish special. The nachos were good, but nothing special. They lacked overall spiciness. Our friends with the burger and fries, said they were "good" The seafood chowder had good reviews and the salad bar offered a variety of selections. Our friend with the fish special liked her selection.

Service here was poor. The waiter disappeared between serving our drinks and the arrival of our food despite there being no one else in the restaurant. I would have expected an update on our meals since it seemed to take a while. I'd recommend trying somewhere else first.
