This is by far the best place we have eaten at since we moved here. Great atmosphere, live music, drink specials and amazing service. I would recommend Scuttelbutts to everyone.

Loved the shrimp cocktails! Really yummy food for a decent price. They say everything is bigger in Texas... it's true here! The portions were huge!

This restaurant has an awesome atmosphere, and the food has been great every time we have eaten there. We enjoy taking guest to enjoy the live guitar & signing. Our #1 choice if you want a fun beach restaurant.

Sushi was warm when it should be cold. Service was lackluster, noticed cooks and other staff smoking behind the restaurant upon arrival. Whataburger will be your best bet and save you more money. Not again!!

We live in the area and understandably there are certain times that are busier than normal, but restaurants should be prepared. We were seated right away, but it took several minutes to get our drink order. We ordered an appetizer and sushi with our drinks,...More

Scuttlebutt's sushi is very good. It's well made and fresh every time we've eaten there. We go early and save $$$. They do half price sushi from 3pm to 7pm everyday, even on Sat/Sun. That's unheard of anywhere in Corpus so believe me, earlier is...More

We were on the island and wanted seafood. Found this place and decided to try it. Prices were ok and the food was great! Had steamed clams and shrimp tacos. Nice lunch and on our way. Would definitely eat there again.

Scuttlebutt's was highly recommended by our friends at Johnny Carino's, so my wife and I paid a visit one afternoon. Parking at the frontage was easy and we sat at the bar and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. There is a full table service for the...More

The number one question asked is “What does Scuttlebutt’s mean?” Well, we answer, The original context came from two nautical terms; the “butt” (picture a wooden keg) was a wooden cask that stored the fresh water when sailors were at sea. The “scuttle” was the area of the ship where the “butt” was stored. When it was break time, the sailors would gather at the “Scuttle Butt” and drink. This also became a social time, as they could all meet and talk. Now over the years the words joined together and became “scuttlebutt”. This word was used when people would gather together, typically at the office water fountain, and ask one another, “Hey, what’s the scuttlebutt with Jim in accounting?” Here is the official definition according to Meriam Webster; 1a : a cask on shipboard to contain freshwater for a day's use 2b: a drinking fountain on a ship or at a naval or marine installation 2: rumor, gossip. Now that you know what Scuttlebutt’s means, this is what we are about! Scuttlebutt’s is a full service restaurant and bar that truly is a place where everyone, from babies to baby-boomers, can get together and have a great time! Our menu is as equally diverse, with grilled peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches, hand-cut rib eye steaks, oysters on the half shell and one of the best sushi bars around. Our premium craft beer wall and wine selection is top rated, and make sure to try our house made sangria or our signature Scuttlebutt’s punch. We are a scratch kitchen and our day starts in the wee-early mornings when the hard-working prep team arrives to bust out our house recipes. Another appeal to Scuttlebutt’s is that we offer Happy Hour every day (Yes, week-ends too!) from 3pm-7pm and we have live music every night (Yes, really, every night – unless the Dallas Cowboys are playing). We can easily accommodate larger groups as well as be the perfect spot for date night, which has turned into a marriage proposal on more than one occasion. Call ahead seating is available and we can help plan a perfect office party or celebration with custom menu options. Come visit us and become part of our Scuttle Family!
