Even if the food was mediocre, watching the sunset on the water's edge would make this worthwhile. The seafood including the fish and shrimp are prepared with taste in mind.

Then there was Jonathan, our waiter who was very personable and willing to go the extra mile. We came here on 2 occasions and were similarly impressed.

The service was really good at Scampi's. The menu selections were better than the other South Padre Island restaurants I have experienced. The staple menu selections on the island are typically fried fish, fries, and such, but Scampi's selections are better quality. You'll pay a little more but it is worth it. There are a few signature dishes that were enjoyed by 2 in my party and they said it was unbelievable.

So glad this place has reopened, and it's just as good as ever. Bartender knows what he's doing. Wait staff is great. Food exceptional. In order to watch the sunset, you may need to be a row or 2 back from the windows.

The "Early Bird Specials" are a great deal. The restaurant is quite nice and we had a great view of the bay and sunset. Our server was friendly and prompt. The bread was great and he brought us more. I had walnut crusted Mahi with a salad and baked sweet potato and my husband had fried shrimp with clam chowder and grilled veggies. We enjoyed all of it. The price was really reasonable too, around $11.95 each, I think. We will be sure to go back. I don't think they are open at noon, though.

We ate here a few times last year when they first re-opened and were happy to see the oysters rockfeller still on the menu! Bronzed scallops with pasta are also very good. The interior could use some updating but you can't beat the sunset and bay views. Good wine selection.
