Great food, drinks, service and reasonable prices. This place also offers a full bar; highly recommend the Long Island Ice Tea.

Service was great, very friendly people. Food was good and although there wasn't a huge choice on the menu, the food we ate was delicious and well cooked. Might eat here again.

The service was good and the people were very nice, but some of the food tasted a little off. I am not sure why. It did not seem very fresh and compared to other places we ate at it would probably be at the bottom of my list as far as food quality goes. With the other options and the places we didn't eat at. I would try somewhere else next time.

This is not the newest, shiniest place you will ever visit. It has been located on South Padre Island in the same building for over 30 years. But the people are friendly, and the fish and shrimp are very good, some of the best on the island in my opinion. I have eaten there many times over the years since 1989, most recently August of 2014. Every time I have eaten there, the food has been hot and very tasty. There is not a huge variety. If you don't eat SEAFOOD, don't go! That is all they serve, aside from a couple of kid's menu items like chicken fingers and corny dogs. But for the adults, seafood is it. Period! But if you want the best fried (or broiled, but get the fried) fish and shrimp, this is IT! Not the cheapest either, but they do have some specials.

Saw this place the first evening we were on the Island before asking anyone. We later asked and the local opinion confirmed our feelings. Food was poor, service surly and it became a joke whenever anyone asked "Where are we eating tonight."
