Great View

This was one of our stops. Great view, didn't know until we arrived it's $3.00 just to walk out onto it. Worth it for the view.

Since many of the piers I have chosen to visit were free I was disappointed at this money grab. I'm not a fishing person and just wanted to walk to the end, take some pictures and walk back but not for a fee. Nuff said.

You are paying for the amazing sea views! This place is pretty expensive...the kids meals are $7! All he had was a grilled cheese and tiny cup of fruit! Food was ok...the padre colada was delicious. I'd go again for drinks and the beautiful sea views

Nice place to enjoy the gulf, watch locals fish, and look back along the coast. Cost is minimal and you can return any time on the same day. There is a convenient restaurant on the beach.

Fun waterfront bar and grill. Typical bar food. Good selection of beer. Long line waiting for table. The North Padre Island beach is some of the best sand i have ever been on.

The location is great since it sits right over the Gulf Waters and you park in the sand to get here. The food is average and unfortunatly they don't use Gulf Fish for their Fish Sandwich or Fish Basket. They use very cheap ($2.44 Pd) Swai fish that comes from Vietman...yuck. Talk about greed, sell 1/2 pd of cheap fish... More

This is a good place to visit even if you don't want to fish. It's an excellent pier for fishing and very inexpensive. Military and Seniors get reduced rate

We had some time to kill, so stopped by the Bob Hall Pier at the recommendation of a local restaurateur. Unfortunately, it was extremely windy (30+ mph winds), so we didn't go out on the pier, but the employee staffing the ticket counter was very friendly and showed me pictures of some of the fish that had been caught on...
