Nice views of the beach and pier. Fishing pier. Pretty good service but food was a little slow arriving. Happy hour specials. Nice shrimp & fish selections. Check for the fried fish specials. Hamburger looked very good.

The only restaurant on a pier on Padre Island. Awesome views and good food. Great interior and atmosphere. They have a very good happy hour and the servers are very friendly. Will recommend going here. Just a little on the high side in price.

The seafood was really good and fresh. We were not very impressed with the crab cakes, I will skip them next time. Really cute place, great atmosphere. The waitresses were super nice and friendly 😊

We recently had family move out on to the island and they brought us here for dinner our first night in town. Though it's blazing hot outside and open air seating, its very comfortable due to the sea breezes. The service was good, the food...More
