Water Street Seafood and Water Street Oyster Bar are virtually the same in menu, service, and quality. The Oyster Bar does have sushi but you can order from them if you are seated in the Seafood Co. Both restaurants are owned and operated by the same person/corporation.

The menu has some tried and true dishes that have been offered as long as I can remember, but they do change things up a bit from time to time. Sunday Brunch is good, but every meal I've had there is good.

I would suggest either restaurant for special occasions or just a night out.

Very good shrimp, great oysters on the half shell, tasty house walnut dressing, good tortilla soup. One of the best seafood restaurants in town! My number 1 pick. Excellent salads! Good house Wines.

A Corpus Christi institution. Although it's best known for seafood, the Caldo Xochitl is a chicken soup worth having. The walnut dressing is very rich, creamy & delicious. The sourdough bread & garlicky butter is famous too. The fish is all pretty good, but the Nueces sauce that the waitstaff pushes has very little shellfish & consists mainly of congealed cornstarchy looking gravy--not worth the extra price. All substitutions & variations are usually extra. The shrimp embrochette is spicy & very oily, but tasty. The chocolate mint are good & complimentary

Water Street Seafood managers/staff are always on top of the game of restaurants. The décor changes every 4/5 years and the menu choices changes 6/10 months. My wife and I never had a bad meal in that place from dinner from Salmon salads to main dishes to sandwiches. The service is top notch from everyone. OH, did you know that the have any upstairs area for small banquets up to 60 people. I had two events up there and both were great. One was a surprise graduation party for my wife. I had the hostess tell us that the restaurant was booked up and they had to seat us upstairs.

One of the best seafood restaurants in Corpus. The house salad dressing makes you want to sop up the dregs with bread, it's so good. The shrimp enchiladas are unusual and delicious. And the mesquite grilled bacon wrapped shrimp are hard to beat. Been going to Water Street for at least 15 years, never been disappointed there yet.
