My favorite restaurant on North Padre Island. Daily specials are always good as is the service. The chef/owner is French so the food combinations are quite interesting.

We went to Dragonfly early evening on a weekday; we were one of two couples there. We decided on some sangrias. We had the worst white sangria. We sent it back and they came out with complimentary red sangrias. Still the worst ever, their mix...More

Food is good, but service has been disappointing our last couple of visits. I've always been reluctant to go on peak times on weekends because the kitchen seems to get overwhelmed easily. Our last visit, I called about making reservations. James, the manager, said they...More

Corpus doesn't have much in the way of 'fine dining', but this is definitely my recommendation for anyone who appreciates excellent food! It is very casual, not at all pretentious, but everything we have tried here is simply wonderful! IT is very eclectic with everything...More

I found Dragonfly with the TA app so I expected some degree of quality. I was surprised, however, by the cool, laid-back beach-vibe that delivered excellent service and solid fare. If you find yourself in the area, Dragonfly is a good choice.

This place is a great place for a nice quality dinner. The staff are awesome, and the food is delicious. A must visit place in the island of Corpus Christi. I will be back. Don't for get the drinks, great selection.

The dry aged steaks are phenomenal!!! I go there just for the ribeye. 24 to 42 oz. pieces of perfection. Some of the best steak I have ever had. Come early though, as the people on the island fall on them like they're starving, lol.

We just moved to Padre Island and have been trying out all the neighborhood restaurants and had lunch at Dragonfly. The goat cheese salad (a large green salad with three slices of decadent goat cheese topped bread) was sublime. The enchiladas (a special,that day) were...More

Sit at the bar so you can interact with the bartender. Very knowledgeable of what is going to be the best food for the evening. They hand mix your drinks to order. Try the Mojitos. But, only a couple. These drinks will sneak up on...More
