We visited on what I believe was their first day back open and except for being cash only (and an excited staff) you couldn't really tell. I didn't even know the menu was limited until I read it at the top. The menu had plenty...More

We had the coconut shrimp and fish tacos with some beer. Decent food. Nice, friendly staff. Cool ambience and props sort of like a Bubba Gumps with a bit more pirate theme. Nice, local feel.

The atmosphere was great, very beachy. All 8 of us enjoyed our dinners. Most of us had sea food. One of us had a steak, and the children had kid's meals. Very yummy! We will defnitely eat here again!

People were great. Even the busy gift shop kids were friendly. Service was good from the smiling hostess to the waiter. Food was outstanding. Decor is fun, kitchy. Kids loved it and I could relax. Seating is limited although there are plenty of tables -...More

Wow could this place use some serious process improvement! We were told it would be 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes. We decided what the hell we did some souvenir shopping while we waited. After 1 hour we noticed several empty tables. The big...More

I have no idea. Suggest you call Moby Dicks (361-749-9447) and leave a message for him. He's in the restaurant almost every day.
