My husband and I shared a shrimp po boy and a gumbo. The po boy was good; the gumbo was a bit salty. But the room was nice and there was an older man (probably in his 80s) providing the live entertainment who was kind of a kick to watch. If I could give half stars, I would have given... More

One of the best grilled fish dishes I had on the Island. Nice to have something besides fried food. Price was good too. Stopped by on other nights for a piece of the chocolate cake. Hmm Good.

Most of the food served here is preprocessed frozen stuff, good, average; stuff But two items stand out. The Chicken/Shrimp Teka Masala is superb, and the Mexican Street taco are true local flavors and quite good. Little atmosphere here, and the lights are ALWAYS turned up

Have enjoyed eating here the past three years. Try the 9.95 special menu for dinner. Good food, price, service and atmosphere. A good overall value.

We can't wait to get to the island to have lunch at the Hilton and have the Tikka Masala. This tasty Indian dish is delicious and very reasonably price. It comes with rice and naan bread. The other luncheon specials are also very good.

Every year we have and do the same thing so this time we traveled to S Padre Island, TX and decided to give the Garden Grille a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the non-pocket gouging prices on the menu. All of the food ordered was excellent and we recommend this place at any time.

Decided to eat breakfast at the hotel restaurant and found out once we were seated that it was a buffet style restaurant - we weren't even sure of the price but we were hungry - the food was good for a buffet style and the price was $9.95 which was surprising we thought it would be more - only drawback...
