Description: Sea Ranch Restaurant has been serving South Padre Island visitors for over 35 years, and has established itself as the island’s premier dining destination. If you haven’t spent an evening at the Sea Ranch Restaurant, you haven’t truly experienced South Padre.Our menu is comprised of local seafood that is caught directly from the Gulf of Mexico, and it changes often based on what is in season. Every item is made with high-quality ingredients, from unbeatably fresh seafood to juicy steaks and hearty pastas. Start your meal off with our Ahi Tuna or Escargot appetizers, or try something a little spicier like our Stuffed Jalapeños. For your main course, pick from one of our countless seafood items including fresh fish, crab legs, shrimp, oysters, lobster and scallops. Our house specialty is the Red Snapper, which has become a customer favorite as well. If you aren’t in the mood for seafood, try one of our delicious grilled steak, chicken or pork dishes. We also have decadent pastas, from chicken or seafood Alfredo to Scott’s Shrimp Scampi served over angel hair pasta. No matter what you are in the mood for, we have a tasty, fresh option for you at Sea Ranch Restaurant.Seafood goes perfectly with wine, so we boast an extensive selection of wines. With over 122 choices ranging from $20 all the way to $500, we have the perfect choice to compliment your meal. If you have an event coming up, consider hosting it at the Sea Ranch. We can accommodate up to 77 people for anything from weddings and receptions to birthdays and meetings.

“Great food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This seems to be the most upscale seafood joint on SPI. The dining area is pleasantly dim and spacious so it feels very private. Also has a decent view of the sunset. Service was fast and professional. My filet came cooked perfectly to order and was accompanied by delicious fried shrimp.

Great night, excellent food, service and atmosphere. Lobster was a bit pricey (25 bucks/lb) but prepared very well and nice presentation. Definitely will return,

“Excellent food and service.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Everything was great from the bread to the melt in your mouth filet and king crab. This is a higher end restaurant but worth the money.
