This food might have been the best food I have ever had. And considering my waist size, that says a lot. I originally passed this restaurant up, despite reading the reviews, as the place was small and obviously family owned, and I wasn't in the...More

Cool little place the food was fresh and tasty. The tortilla was amazing. I can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!

Great variety of food and great food. Shrimp taco was a meal and also had crap spring rolls. Delicious. Went back that night for beignets with custard cream. AWESOME! You have to and it’s worth the wait.

We spent several days in Port Aransas and this was our first stop to eat right after a nasty rainstorm. The insides are nothing special, but the food is excellent. It was the best meal we had in a vacation town littered with not so...More

We stop in at least once every trip to the island. We learned the hard way to show up at opening time and be prepared to order everything you might want. They sell out and run out of places to sit pretty fast.

I don't believe there is one online. If you read other reviews on Iries on trip advisor that will give you some insight into the menu.

Irie's Island Food is an extra casual, very small restaurant serving lunch only. Hours of operation are seasonal in this vacation town. We feature fresh handmade food prepared by the chef/owner who is a graduate of the Culinary institute of America. Creative tacos on house made tortillas, Hawaiian, Asian, American/tropical, and international cuisine is offered at our establishment. We also make New Orleans style beignets from scratch, roast our own coffee, and even have creme brulee to go!
