I had to write another review of Seafood and Spaghetti Works, to reassure everybody this this wonderful place is back and better than ever!

I ate here with a large party of ladies for dinner. We enjoyed drinks at the bar while waiting to be seated. The bartender gals were sweet and friendly, and really made our wait-time fun.

In the dining room, the great service continued. Our orders were taken quickly and efficiently, which we appreciated for such a large group.

The salad bar here is the best in Port A, and the food is still EXCELLENT after all these years. Top pick: the crab cakes. Close second: fried shrimp. But everything on the menu is wonderful. You'll be happy with whatever you order.

It was a pleasure to see that Jay and his crew are still at the helm of this wonderful restaurant. They even let our group (a ladies choir) sing them a thank-you song before we left.

Such a memorable evening for us! We're always glad to visit Seafood and Spaghetti Works whenever we're in Port Aransas.

This was our first night out to dinner to kick off our family vaca and boy were we SOO happy with our choice!! It was a Thursday night around 7 so the wait wasn’t too bad at around 30 min for a table of 8. What impressed us right off the bat was their check in/wait list process! You give them your phone number and they send you a link to go to that shows you exactly what number in line you are, how long you and all in front of you have waited...and shows you as you move up the line on the list.... so you know exactly what to expect! This is how all busy restaurants should do their waiting process!
Plus we even seated 10 min sooner than they had initially stated, very impressive!
After being seated, (by whom I believe to be the owner, Jay, by the way;) our server was very friendly and welcoming.
Menu has a variety of things to choose from (be prepared though, the seafood plates were rather pricey at around $22-$30/plate) however they do have several other options that are more comfortably priced.. such as pastas $15-$20ish, sandwiches around $11-$17ish and then there was the amazing pizza choices small (12”) at about $12-16, and large (16”) $16-20 depending on toppings, etc. Just a heads up...! The 16” is PLENTY big enough for 2 adults and then some!! This is mainly because you get unlimited soup and salad bar with most meals and if it doesn’t come with it you can add it on for only $2.50!!
The salad bar is awesome and the VERY best part and my favorite part of the meal for sure was the AMAZING tomato basil soup on the bar!! I could have ate my weight in that stuff!
The atmosphere is casual and family oriented, decor is fun and appropriate for a coastal seafood restaurant. There is a small gift shop type store in the front to browse through while waiting for a table.
This was a delightful little find for a family vacation and we can’t wait to go back!!! A must go if you are looking for good food in a fun/coastal atmosphere right near the water!!

Our wait was about an hour for a family of 4. However, it was well worth it!! The food was amazing!! The staff were friendly and very pleasant even after the dinner rush. The soup and salad bar was fresh and had plenty to choose from. The Shrimp Bolognese was my favorite!!

Just got done eating for the second time this week. Still the best seafood on the island. Robert's fish was outstanding, but I tried Richard's Fish on the second visit - which was equally as good if not better. Had both with Snapper. My wife got the avocado with crab, which had to be way more crab than avocado - highly recommend it. And the mussels w/ pasta were awesome. Jay and his staff do an outstanding job!
