We walked in, were seated immediately, and our waiter was at our table within seconds to take our order. (We had walked out of a fancier restaurant 10 minutes earlier because the waiter/waitress never showed.) Our waiter was quick and helpful.
I ordered the Mesquite Grilled Sampler, Caesar Salad, and Key Lime Pie, all of which were very good and fresh (and cost less than the restaurant we left).

Restaurant is clean; several families were there. Parking can be difficult. There are small shops nearby.

I expected better. I had the amberjack with Vera Cruz sauce. The fish was overlooked but the sauce was nice with spice. Veggies were good. My husband had a lightly breaded drum. Service was fine.

Ate here for dinner at a conference. No wait, friendly staff, excellent food and drinks. We all ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their orders.

While attending a conference in Corpus Christi, I had lunch in this restaurant order oyster's on the half shell which were fresh and delicious. Had the pasta and scallops which was the specials of the day, had huge scallops and the sauce was great. Also had a great wedge salad with my lunch. We had a great server Roberta. Give this place a try.

We had not been to the restaurant in a few months and decided to go to celebrate an anniversary with some friends.

We were very disappointed with our meal. We started out with the fried squid as an appetizer and we were served oily, soggy squid with a tasteless dipping sauce.

The main course was to say the least tastleless, poorly prepared and starting to get cold. The swordfish was dry, overcooked, and came with a mango salsa that was almost all tomatoes with a few scant pieces of mango. (We were billed extra for the mango salsa.)

Our friends had the same experience.

Needless to say we will not be going there again.

Bottom line - overpriced, poorly prepared food.

The only positive was our server. He was attentive and helpful.
