“Easy convenient access from beach or nearby hotels and condos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Great place to get a midday beach snack or late night dinner without driving. We were staying next door at the Beachgate. Fried seafood baskets, burgers and sandwiches. Beer and wine. Outdoor patio facing ocean. Beach bar ambience was perfect for our first night at the beach. Reasonable prices. Friendly wait staff. Worth a trip if you are on the beach or staying nearby, just walk right up!

“True local 'hole in the wall'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Port Aransas is a secret that suffers because of its location about 2 hours from Padre Island. But to folks looking for a place to relax, the town is a delight.

The Beach Lodge restaurant is a true local watering hole sitting right on the beach. It's not much for atmosphere and the food is basic, but it's very good. They serve breakfast...typical eggs, bacon, etc., and a dinner that's good bar food. The specialty is the Texas boil...prawns, sausage, corn, hush puppies...lots of food that's a great buy for someone with an appetite.

If you're looking for great food with a classy atmosphere, head into Port Aransas from some of the local restaurants, but if you're looking for the place where the locals eat, this is it.

“Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

Only place in Port A I know to see the ocean from a restaurant. We stopped in just for that, a view and a drink. Our waiter was attentive and overall a good experience, but please work on the parking lot! I understand the food is good we didn't order any.

“Only restaurant on the beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Great view of the beach and the beer is way cold. The food was average at best and a little pricey for what we got. The restaurant is a little grungy but it is right on the beach. People track in sand, etc. We will go back no matter what.

“one of my favorites....i never miss a trip to the 'beach bar'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

over the years I have eaten here many times. it is the only place that's really on the beach....no better place to sit on the deck and and enjoy the ocean. had the oyster poor boy and it was very good. fresh and tasty in every way. they have your basic fried seafood fare and also a 'bucket'? louisiana type throw down meal. beer and wine. yea the kitchen may be a little slow, but the longer I get to stay here the better.
