This is one happening place in Corpus Christi. The oysters were good and the selection of micro brews as well. It's not fine dining but the prices indicate it should be.

What a shame! The Water Street Seafood Restaurant has closed except for private parties, so the only choice is to go into the Oyster Bar. I will say at the outset that the food was excellent. The problem was the incessant din of loud voices,...More

We went here for a business lunch. Service was fast and efficient. I had the shrimp and oyster plate and it was excellent. Nice portions without overeating.

Very crowded but the food was good and plentiful- the wait staff was tremendous given that the restaurant was very busy!

This place is an admirable stand-in for the Water Street Seafood Restaurant which is now an event venue for groups.

When I first moved here from Alaska in 1997, I thought "Great! An oyster bar, like Elliott's pier in Seattle." Not even close. There are no varieties of oysters, and no iced bar where they are served on the half shell along with your microbrew....More

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and the food was excellent! We ordered the appetizer sampler and were almost too full to eat our actual entrees!! The food is pricey so be prepared for that, but it is well worth the price....More

This is the third water street restaurant we have eaten out, all three are great. This restaurant has fresh seafood specials, oysters and sushi. My husband had the crab cake burger which he said was delicious. I had blackened tuna sashimi and a lucky roll....More

On our recent visit, enjoyed this great restaurant twice! The oysters were great, the soup hearty and delicious and the cheesecake absolutely scrumptious. It has a little bit of laid-back island timing, which can be different if you're not used to it. Mostly, a most...More

I go back every time I'm in town just for the mac & cheese. Amazing. Parking is limited and they can get busy on the weekends but it's worth it

Hi, My husband and I have been coming to Waterstreet Oyster bar for over 9 years. We also used to go to the Waterstreet in Fort Worth when it was there. We live in Colorado and cone to Port Aransas every winter for a few months. I am originally from Fort Worth so we enjoy wintering in TX. We've already been to Waterstreet this winter 4 times and it's always good. Today we came for lunch and Trey ( or Tray) was our waiter. I informed him that I am deadly allergic to shrimp, crab, crawfish and lobster, those 4 only. I can have mollusks like oysters and scallops but have to inform the waiter so he can inform the kitchen because I can die but my husband enjoys all those things and I settle for a burger or something else as long as I know it's not cross-contaminated. I made sure Trey understood and he tried to find a menu for people who have allergies which I told him I know what to order, I JUST wanted him to let the kitchen and cook to know. I have to go through this every time I go out for a meal and like I said, I've never had a problem with your restaurant. Today, after I took a couple of bites of my bacon cheeseburger, I started having some MAJOR allergy issues, thinking I would have to use my double epi-pen! I tried to stay calm and when we left, I took some allergy medication, but didn't use the epi-pen. I still have the facial burning and feel horrible but I'm just asking you to please inform your waiters and waitresses about these deadly allergies some of us have. My husband and I brought my nephew to Waterstreet the other evening for dinner. The waitress was awesome and told me what would be safe to order and the meal was fabulous. Some of the new help need to be trained on this issue and know how serious it is. Thank you for your time. Cindy

Talk to the Manager to be sure your problem in communicated to the kitchen staff, even if you have talked to the wait staff. I know this because I also have food allergies.
