“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

This restaurant is in a great location right on the water. Our party of 8 enjoyed our meals. The fried shrimp with fresh veggies and garlic mashed potatoes were delicious!

“Don't buy the ribeye”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

It costs 25$ for one thing and it was the thinnest over cooked steak I've ever gotten for that price I expected a nice cut

“Good Food with a View”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

This restaurant is super busy. Wait time on a Saturday evening was 1 1/2 hours. That is really long to wait when you have a 2 year old in the party. Once we were seated we were taken care of quickly. The seafood was good and fresh. Someone in our party had a steak and said it was delicious as well. We were seated next to the railing so we had a good view of the water and boats. The locals that we talked to recommended this restaurant as well as some of the locals in Rockport.

“Good food, very good service, and really nice views.”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The grilled seafood platters were very good. On a Monday evening, they were not real busy and there was no wait. The service was very friendly and fast. We try to come here whenever we visit Port Aransas since the views of the water and boats are so nice. We have never been disappointed here and the prices are very reasonable, especially compared to some of the other restaurants when it comes to grilled seafood.

“Incredible waterside view and fair prices considering.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The food was fair to good considering the prices and the drinks were a little better than average. The location and seating on the water is what really makes this place in my opinion.
