We ate dinner here with business associates and we were very satisfied. It's not a place for the health conscious as most of the entrees are fired, but for that time off your diet, it was excellent. Burgers were excellent as was the seafood, onion...More

I've been to Corpus several times and was looking forward to the food at City Diner. As I walked up I noticed the sign was different. Decided to try it anyway. Not much of the interior decorating was different. The menu has been completely re-done....More

Took a family group for dinner. Everyone ordered a variety from steak to seafood. All was very good. Onion rings were excellent. Service a bit slow(restaurant was not busy) and did have to ask for silverware and drink refills. Overall, a fairly pleasant experience.

This is nothing to wirite home to mom about but for this little town, the food is good and comes with large portions. Way too much food for 1 person. The chicken Parm was really good as well as the salads.
