Went for lunch Saturday. Or at least we tried to. It wasn't crowded but after no one even brought us water after 15 minutes, or even acknowledged we were there, we left. Waiters worked 4 tables around us but I guess they didn't need our business. We went to the Brewery down the street instead. Service was great, food was... More

Took my 3 years for their birthday. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waiter was okay. The food is expensive but worth the price

Steak was not cooked as requested and grisly...Calamari was gross! Greasy deep fried mess. The service was good but food was awful.

Love the coco it shrimp and the gumbo was good. Also had a delicious Bloody Mary. Others in my group had the big combo and ended up splitting it because it was huge. This place has wonderful service and great atmosphere.

The shrimp was excellent! Lots of food items to select from. The waiter was helpful as regards to food suggestions, Best Bloody Mary EVER! Food arrived quickly, hot and in generous portions. The chocolate mousse pie was delicious! Able, our waiter was attentive, informative and simply an experienced service person. All in all a super experience. Very affordable!

I had one of the best burgers I've had in a while, and my friend really enjoyed her shrimp. The atmosphere was friendly and the wait staff was efficient.

This was our first place to eat in Port Aransas. My family was already there and we joined them at a table. I picked a salad ("heart healthy") and my wife went for shrimp. The food was good, the service was okay - not spectacular, the meal was reasonably priced. I'd go back

We found this restaurant to be a bit grungy and plain. The hostess first seated us at a high top sort of counter area. The stools were not the correct height and were so rickety I was afraid to sit down. We moved ourselves to a more comfortable table on the patio. There were lots is birds screeching and strutting...
