THIS PLACE HAS BEEN A WATERING HOLE IN CORPUS CHRISTI FOR AT LEAST A DECADE! Anyone who lives here will recognize and likely compliment the seafood and the drinks. The fish here has always been fresh and prepared beautifully. A wonderful selection is available and...More

The Oyster bar is the remaining restaurant as the family owned business closed Water Street Seafood after hurricane Harvey. Some of those menu items moved over to the Oyster Bar. The specials are high on the wall for all to see. I had the shrimp...More

The food was good and our waitress was outstanding!! Thank goodness she talked loud and could understand her. I do not recommend for families going there on the weekend unless you like to yell at each other. Try another night or find another seafood restaurant....More

I had the raw oysters and they were good and fresh. No complaints about this but the servers are kind of slow to the point that the bartender was always walking to my table to get me a refill. I had also a plate with...More

This is one of those restaurants that visitors to Corpus Christi must visit if you're looking for great seafood. The menu is diverse with lots of great options. Staff is friendly and the prices are on the higher end, but still reasonable. Highly recommended. Never...More

Dropped in for dinner last week and had a great meal. I started off with Pecan Crusted Oysters and for dinner I had a fantastic steak! Yes, I said steak. An odd choice for an oyster bar but it had been recommended by a friend...More

Not something special... The stake was medium. The crab cakes was very small and not something special. Salad was not something special.

I went twice on my trip to Corpus Christi and both were yummy! The bacon wrapped shrimp were fresh, and having them grilled let's you taste the freshness. The vegetables medley was diced zucchini, and carrots which added a nice touch. The next day I...More

In my honest opinion this place has better reviews than it's worth. The fried shrimp appetizer and free bread were the best things we had. I had a Caesar salad before my main and it was ok. My husband had the Cobb and he found...More

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.
