We went for lunch and I had a rib eye steak with seafood sauce. I asked them to leave sauce on the side because I don't normally like those types of sauces. I tried it and I loved it!!! Good portion sizes, great atmosphere. Loved sitting above the water. Outdoor area was closed due to fall season, but it was... More

Dining above water level? Here you can indulge. Nestled on the planks of the old wooden causeway, this restaurant is an institution. Choose from air-conditioned to al fresco dining depending where on the planks you will enjoy your meal. We loved the fish ceviche which was out of this world as well as a delicious guacamole accompanied by a vibrant,... More

The view of the bay is great! The pier even moves with the waves. The cinnamon rolls are the size of a dinner plate! The Bloody Mary's are the best with goodies one the stir stick including shrimp!

Busy happy hour and nice location on a pier in the harbor. Seemed to have a busy happy hour but we went back for dinner it was not overcrowded. A lot of the entrees are deep fried with fires and some deep fried corn meal (?) things.

My husband and I both ordered the lunch special which consisted of 5 medium-to-large batter-fried shrimp, French fries, coleslaw and 2 hush puppies. While the food was OK, we didn't see anything special about it. The service was... More

Pier 19 was chosen for Dad's birthday meal because of its diverse menu and outstanding view of the lower Laguna Madre. The food was well prepared and well presented. Our server took good care of us and gave good advice on menu choices. We enjoyed watching bottle nose dolphins and fishing boats through the huge picture windows. Our indoor dining... More
