“Thought it was kinda gross!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

We were starving and looking online for a place we could get fish. This place was so highly rated we figured we'd give it a go. Now don't get me wrong, we knew it was a drive through fish joint, and I don't mind what your place looks like, as long as it's clean, and the food is good. I can't speak to the cleanliness of the Boat 'n Net Drive Inn, and I have no reason to doubt it's not clean, but the food was pretty awful.
We ordered a little bit of everything on the menu - fish, shrimp, chicken, chicken nuggets and fries. All the meats were coated in some sort of THICK/HARD cornmeal batter (not breading - more of a "shell-like" substance) that might have been dipped in glue before being deep-fried. The batter was very crunchy, but not in a good way. The fries were not awful. The tartar sauce was good.
I wouldn't recommend this place, and we'll keep searching for a good fish/seafood restaurant in Corpus Christi.
