My Girlfriend's Family lives in Corpus and we go pretty Regularly to visit and the first place she wants to go is Boat 'n Net. She has been going there since she was a Kid and the Fried shrimp Combos can't be beat for taste and price. Every once in a while I will get fish and shrimp combo and... More

when you first drive up to Boat n Net, you see its a plain 4 walls and roof, but it gets interesting when you order at the drive through. I about died laughing but its a testament for what they represent. No frills just meals. The drive through is just PVC pipe you yell in to and a doorbell (yes... More

It's very easy to order here. You drive up, and park. Then you walk to a window, place your order for chicken, shrimp, fish or fries, and a few minutes later they call your number, and you check out. This weekend the food was a mixed result. This trip I ordered shrimp and fries. The shrimp was excellent, but this... More

If you like thick breading and NO fish or shrimp, then this place is for you. One of the worst meals ever. I realize this is fast food - but no food should nauseate you just looking at it and smelling it. Needless to say, it all went in the garbage. Don't waste your time.

These little places are all over corpus and a great alternative for a quick snack or meal to go compared to the normal hambuger fast food stops. Their fish and shrimp orders are all I've tried from their menu but they've always been fresh cooked and hot when I pick them up from the window. I probably only eat here... More

We usually love the food here but this time Shrimp and fish were extremely dry and over cooked. ALL Boat n Net locations need a facade face lift. They all look seedy and rundown.

So after moving down to Corpus Christi, all of the locals were raving about this little place. After visiting there I'm not quite sure why. As was mentioned, they have an array of cheap seafood and chicken, all consistently fried in the same glue-like cornmeal batter. Yuck. The inside of the drive in restaurant from what we could see was... More

Boat N Net is a the bomb. If you can get past the outside appearance, the food inside is fresh and tasty. The Tartar Sauce is so amazingly good! I would suggest Boat N Net to anyone that has not ever tried it. It is a great stop for a quick and cheap lunch or dinner.
