“View is nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food is so so, quit greasy but the fish we had was fresh and tasty. We have been here more times and have been unlucky that we had the pleasure of live music every time.
We do love live music and the artists have been very good too. but it's so loud that you can't have a conversation round the table.
Be aware that smoking is allowed so if that bothers you, dine somewhere else.

“Great view, average everything else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Had a drink here a couple days earlier. Thought it would be a good place for dinner. View was still great however, the food, for what we ordered, took a long time. Food quality was average. My son had a very good burger, but my wife had the tropical chicken, which I could have done just as good a job on my home grill. The only thing that appeared to make it tropical was the pineapple slice on top. Brownie for dessert was really good. As a happy hour place I would recommend it, probably good for lunch too. Dinner, ehh.

“Fantastic location, view and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This place is the most remarkable place. Every time we go to Corpus Christi we just have to go there! This trip we ate there twice. The service is top notch , the view of the harbor is great, and the atmosphere is always relaxing, inviting and fun. They have great music, with various musicians on many nights. And the music starts earlier that a lot of places. Food is definitely a cut above others here. Fried snapper is the best I've ever had, shrimp are colossal, grilled fish and shrimp dip also great choices. Everything is fresh, and although I only eat seafood when there, they do offer other choices for landlubbers. Eat here for a great casual dining experience.

Ate here on our last visit. The harborside location and views are fantastic! I recommend the Monty Cristo sandwich. If you haven't had one, you need one!
