Wonderful experience. The Food is great and prices are very reasonable. Bloody Mary's are $3.50 and are a meal in themselves. If you have nothing else, at least have a Blood Mary. Highly recommend this place.

One of our favorite places. We have always had their nachos with beef. Our favorite. This time however, was disappointing. The nachos were not hot and no melted cheese. In fact there was hardly any cheese on them. Just a few, very few, sprinkled here and there. Had to search to find any at all. We waited until more Winter... More

This is a fun seafood place to visit. Great pier with nice views of the sunset, bay, and dolphins. The food is pretty "average" at best. We got a fried seafood platter and it was all really cold...really cold! But we did send it back and got a hot plate that was much better. Service was slow.

We stayed at the KOA for a month and we ate here several times a week. Tried many of the menu items.

We had the Grouper and Red Snapper for lunch. Most Excellent! Service fantastic as provided by Jerry V and as supervised by Dennis. When on Padre Island you must stop here for the best fish this side of the West Indies.

Raw oysters to start. I had the jalapeño stuffed shrimp, very good! We had fried flounder, calamari, and Pancho shrimp. Everyone enjoyed their food. Our server, Joe was great!

Pier 19 is second to none for food quality. Staff is prompt, friendly and attentative. Great location - on an old pier or roadway and out over the water. Several different rustic areas to sit and have a drink or eat.
