Very good restaurant for sea food. I had crab and It was excellent. The portions are great. I went solo but I would definetely go back with my family when I visit Corpus again.

The staff was very friendly, but I found the portions versus pricing extremely lacking. "Atmosphere" if you want to call it that -- does not satisfy hunger. If I pay $15 (which I did) and still feel unsatisfied "full feeling-wise", I will likely not return. This was the case for Pier 99. My friend from out of town raved about... More

sometimes a rude cash register girl can ruin your whole evening- have seen opposums with classier personalities- have been here a million times-not sure if we will ever go back- food is ok- but not like it used to be

I have to say, we were disappointed. Service was quite poor even though they did not seem overly busy for a saturday evening. When food arrived it was lukewarm and quality was average on most items, although the fried okra was excellent, as were the cheesecake desserts. There was live entertainment, but quality was lacking there as well. We enjoyed... More

The service was great but the food leaves alot to be desired. We were very disappointed. The gumbo was bitter and the crab cakes were obviously cooked from frozen. When you order a small basket of onion rings you get 4. The frozen margaritas were good.

We have to eat here every time we go to Corpus Christi. One of our favorites. They have an outdoor patio so you can eat next to the water and get a great view of the USS Lexington which is super close. The food is excellent. Highly recommended.

Good food, good drinks and a fair price. The staff is friendly and the service is reasonably fast. We visited this location twice and enjoyed both visits. Seating is mostly outside but offers covered tables or tables with large umbrellas. Since it's outside dinning then be prepared for the inconveniences of eating outside.

We felt very welcomed by the friendly staff and the watch cats on duty. Live music made for a festive feel while the waves washed in, in the background. Buttery crab legs and peel-and-eat shrimp with just a little chili kick perfectly complimented the ocean air and the tropical drinks.

The restaurant looks a little on the dark side but the building doesn't matter when your sitting down and enjoying the sea breeze with a cocktail and a delicious meal in front of you. Keep in mind this restaurant mainly serves fish so expect some flies to hang around if your going to be sitting outside.

Like most seaside bar and grills this one has a predictable menu of breaded seafood burgers and fries etc. The decor is unimpressibe with chairs homemade of PVC plastic pipes. Was cute in the 70s which is how this place comes across. Food quality was just so so. Fries are meah. Good beer though!
