While attending a conference in Corpus Christi, I had lunch in this restaurant order oyster's on the half shell which were fresh and delicious. Had the pasta and scallops which was the specials of the day, had huge scallops and the sauce was great. Also had a great wedge salad with my lunch. We had a great server Roberta. Give this place a try.

We had not been to the restaurant in a few months and decided to go to celebrate an anniversary with some friends.

We were very disappointed with our meal. We started out with the fried squid as an appetizer and we were served oily, soggy squid with a tasteless dipping sauce.

The main course was to say the least tastleless, poorly prepared and starting to get cold. The swordfish was dry, overcooked, and came with a mango salsa that was almost all tomatoes with a few scant pieces of mango. (We were billed extra for the mango salsa.)

Our friends had the same experience.

Needless to say we will not be going there again.

Bottom line - overpriced, poorly prepared food.

The only positive was our server. He was attentive and helpful.

Fun atmosphere with great service. I have never had a bad experience. I always eat here when I am in town for business. I have heard some complaints about the food, but I disagree. For someone who does not live in Corpus it sure beats all other options in Corpus/Alice/Kingsville/Portland areas.

Visited here on our recent trip to Corpus. The food is excellent and the staff attentive. The fried shrimp is not to be missed and the Embrochette wonderful...shrimp stuffed with oysters wrapped in bacon. The salad was fresh be sure and get the wonderful walnut house dressing. You will not forget this place!
