Headed over to Torch and found it is no longer there- Closed at the beginning of 2015......Sad because came in last year and it was really good. I felt the need to write a review from last years visit because I really liked this place and the food was very good. It had been around for many years and always... More

My family and I had a wonderful dinner at the Torch Restaurant. It was Greek night and the food and service were fabulous! Enjoyed absolutely everything! The restaurant is cozy, comfortable, and romantically lit with just the right amount of candles. The music is soothing! It's been one of my favorite restaurants in Corpus Christi for over 30 years and... More

Discovered the Torch a couple years ago when we first moved to the Corpus Christi area. Been going back once a week since that time - fantastic restaurant - from the saganaki and Greek Salad to the lamb chops and steaks, all of the food choices are cooked to perfection. The owner and his wife are very involved in the... More

This used to be one of the great old time restaurant of Corpus Christi. The food used to wonderful and the service used to some of the most gracious in the area. NO MORE. I don't know what has happened but this place has gone to the dogs. The food was horrible, the vegetables smelled like fish, the steak was... More

Special occasion took us there. Started out great until it came to the salad. We were encouraged to try their salad dressing. I asked for a dressing I liked and she said she did not know what it was and turned around in loud voice and asked (owner?) and responded "not in 30 years! The waitress insisted and hers but...

Horrible. Very sad to go to the Torch and see the delipidated state it is in. This used to be one of my favorites throughout the 1990's. My steak was thin and overcooked....exactly as the previous reviewer wrote: freezer burnt and dry. Would have made better jerky. The twice baked potato was so cold I actually CUT through the top...

This is a disgusting restaurant. My wife and I were very disappointed with the meal. I ordered a medium well Angus Ribeye and I got a freezer burnt steak. It was replusive, the steak lacked flavor and it's appearance was lacking. I tired to explain to the waitress Petra that it was not an Angus steak nor was it a... More

The worst of the worst. Dined their today. It took over one hour to receive our order. The twice baked potato was cold and hard, the mashed potato was cold, the marinated grilled shrimp were burned and tasted like butane, the chicken fried steak was cold and tasteless. One of the worst meals we have eaten in Corpus Christi. We... More

I was pretty unimpressed with this restaurant. Skepticism started from the parking lot, as half the sign had fallen off or was about go fall off. The atmosphere was good, nice music and real wood tables, cloth napkins. Our server was new, and her service needs a lot of improvement. She was friendly enough, but her menu knowledge left a...
