Great service. Tender and juicy ribs. I don't particularly like keylime pie but theirs is delicious. Loved the open harbor view. You definitely should put this on your to do list while in Padre.

The burgers were awesome. The seafood platter wasn’t cooked all the way. The service was good. Would go back but not for seafood.
