I don't normally comment on anything. But I feel the need to alert you of the amazingly pisspoor service and dinner we just had. The stuffed Portobello mushroom was sub par as was the shrimp scallops and muscels in olive oil. Stay away from the peanut butter shrimp if you value your taste buds. Having to ask for ice tea refills and being ignored by our waiter really helped our experience.

My wife and I have eaten here three times during our March and April stay in South Padre. Food was great-tasty and well presented. Serving staff both friendly and attentive. View was lovely. Very relaxed atmosphere.

Even if the food was mediocre, watching the sunset on the water's edge would make this worthwhile. The seafood including the fish and shrimp are prepared with taste in mind.

Then there was Jonathan, our waiter who was very personable and willing to go the extra mile. We came here on 2 occasions and were similarly impressed.

The service was really good at Scampi's. The menu selections were better than the other South Padre Island restaurants I have experienced. The staple menu selections on the island are typically fried fish, fries, and such, but Scampi's selections are better quality. You'll pay a little more but it is worth it. There are a few signature dishes that were enjoyed by 2 in my party and they said it was unbelievable.

So glad this place has reopened, and it's just as good as ever. Bartender knows what he's doing. Wait staff is great. Food exceptional. In order to watch the sunset, you may need to be a row or 2 back from the windows.
