Ate here with my family, there was 8 of us. We were seated promptly. I had the Italian sandwich, I liked it. Food came out fast. Everybody seemed to like their food. Waiter was attentive, staff seemed friendly.

And we still go down to Padre to vacation at least 2x per year. We have been two times this past year and both times the food was luke warm and the pizza was not very good. When I lived on the island some years ago, the pizza was off the charts - as good or better than BJ's pizza... More

I like the super casual atmosphere, dated, but a bit nostalgic. Good service, great prices. Good place for a casual supper. I'm sure lunch is good too. I like the escargot.

My wife had the shrimp alfredo and loved it. I had the chicken parmegian and it was ok. The chicken was breaded and cooked great but the sauce tasted like store bought sauce. Service was good and they had live music.

Good pizza, but crust would not get hard. Baked crust 3x more--twice in restaurant, and once more at home. Was it lacking baking soda? Someone needs to get the oven mechanic out there soon. Pizza looked good, but crust was rubbery. Strange! For $18.99, I expected something better cooked-- especially after 30 minutes? Perhaps they would get more return business... More

A no frills, quaint place to grab a great bite to eat. The service was quick, waitress friendly and the food was wonderful. And we didn't feel out of place since we had just come in off of the beach!! You can't go wrong stopping her for a quick meal or to dine. We will be back!

This is a really wonderful place for vacationers to eat at when visiting Corpus Christi, Texas and North Padre Island. The food is so good and their homemade Italian dressing is even bought by locals in mason jars from the restaurant. The staff are always friendly and attentive to their patrons. They also have a really good local singer nights... More
