The food and drinks are good here. Service, not so much. We came to have a drink and basically were kicked out because we didn't order food! Yea, that said, last year we got a drink and sat on the amazing pier and watch dolphins and such come in. Fun place as long as you order food too!

Disappointing! We looked forward to trying this place. The Happy Hour price for a mixed cocktail was the most expensive of all places on the Island in the last 5 years we've been coming here. The prices on the menu were higher than those quoted online just before we left for the restaurant. The menu contained fewer selections, also. Just... More

Lively setting on the Bay-indoor or outdoor-1 page menu but all we ordered was good! Shrimp cocktail was loaded w shrimp and tasty. My companion ordered the appetizer combination-more than 1 person could eat! All very tasty. Margaritas were lovely...great on a warm afternoon!

The staff was friendly, especially Jaime, he was welcoming and I could tell he was passionate about this place. I have to say the drinks (margaritas and pina coladas), were affordable and quite delicious. Probably the best I had so far on the island. Jaime recommended the nachos --he said they were well known for them -- so we tried... More

Don't waste your time with this place! The food was awful. Stale tasting calamari, the smallest oysters I've ever eaten, a cold shrimp salad that was nothing but chopped up boiled eggs with minimal pieces of shrimp! The only redeeming meal we had was the Captain Morgan Shrimp which was spicy but tasty. You definitely don't get your money's worth... More

This is one of my favorites! Always a good meal, whether Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. We take out of towers here to experience true South Padre Island hospitality and good eats.
