Many locals and also other tourists had recommended this restaurant. We love it! We make sure to go back every time we visit S. Padre! A must for anyone who enjoys cajun and/or spicy food!

We always eat here at least once during our trip and this time was no exception. The red beans and rice was a bit spicier than usual but still tasty. The shrimp was good too. Great to know you can count on some things never changing much.

Love the food here, ordered a botana style platter with fried fish, fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and French fries. 4 adults ate from it and we still had a bit of left overs. The French fries were BOMB, I'm picky with fried and I loved these fries. Service was great, they were very attentive, it was a good... More

Food was good, but the prices was high and the service was not impressive. There are other restaurants that offer better selection and service.

Make sure you try the redheaded Piña colada, it's delish! We had the shrimp, oyster, and fish botana and was more than enough for four adults and a child. Never have been disappointed with this place.

I had stopped here on a recommendation from a fishing guide that we used. My husband and I had ordered the boiled shrimp, gumbo, The Bayou, and fried crawfish and etouffee combo. We weren't expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised how flavorful and good the food was. The roux for the gumbo was very very dark, which was excellent.... More

If you have known the joy of great Cajun food this place is not for you. We went for a late lunch. The place is very clean and inviting. The service was average. They obviously do a lot of business as they are undergoing a very large expansion. We had the New Orleans shrimp which was decent but the rest... More

Spend a week eating seafood in Padre and tried this place that is not a high profile local. I was very pleased. Good bar but limited beer selection. We had the shrimp gumbo and bisque which was yummy. I had the blackened shrimp tacos which were freaking fantastic and huge. Workmate had fried fish and oysters which were also yummy.... More

We were just not that impressed with the food or the service for the price, which was more than we had spent at other places. We won't return when there are so many other, better places to choose from.

This was previously one of my top favorite restaurants. It closed for remodeling. Recently reopened, we went the second day they were back open. Food was not as good or as plentiful as before. This is owned by a local guy that owns other restaurants, hope someone tells him!! We tried.
