It is hard to find a good seafood restaurant in Corpus Christi as strange as that may seem. We finally hit the jackpot with Yardarm. The fished is not fried, but baked in unique ways (en papaillott, etc). The atmosphere is amazing as it is located in a quaint little house on the bay with glorious views of the sunset. The owner, Costa, is friendly and remembered us the minute we returned the second time. For an intimate fine dinner, it is the place to be in Corpus Christi!

We were a party of five - we had no wait if we wanted to be seated outside on a warm evening. All voted to sit out on the back patio - great choice. Service was great - we went with the specials - so food was outstanding. Great soups and salads (loved the house dressings). Wonderful wine list - great bottle of red serviced with dinner. Next trip to CC - we will bring our friends as our guest.

You've probably already figured out that Corpus Christi is not a foodie town. It's a chain restaurant town. So it's nice to have a place like the Yardarm where you can get a nice, tasty meal in a unique setting.

Other reviewers have complained about the service and amount of food. We've had neither issue. Most fine dining restaurants don't include soup, salad, and side dishes with meals. The Yardarm does! The service was also very good, where each course came in order, on time and menu details were explained.

I have had some good and some not so good meals here. It's situated on the bay so the view is nice. Service is adequate. With a tile floor and lots of glass, the very small dining area can get very loud. Last time I had the broiled black drum fish priced at 22 bucks. I enjoyed the included gazpacho but the fish was unexceptional. The fish was a bit overlooked, chewy, and not particularly flavorful. The fish and sides were not plentiful. I didn't enjoy the fish. On a previous visit I had fried shrimp: also overlooked and expensive. On yet an earlier trip, I had a great meal of stuffed flounder and it was quite good. This place has a nice selection of wines and a full bar but don't come here looking for bargains on food or drinks. In sum, the Yardarm has some charm but the food is inconsistent and pricey. I don't plan on returning any time soon. Thanks. Esteban
