From the moment you walk in the door you know its going to be a great experience. The waitstaff are very freindly and knowledgeable about the menu. I have eaten the fish which is excellent, and also the fried shrimp, most delectable, the best is the coconut fried shrimp. Plates are filled you will not go away hungry.

Enjoyed the food had the seafood basket. It was a great eat for the children by the water. Eating outside can be noisy right by the bridge. Great decorations to set the pirate mood.

Had about a fifteen minute wait to get a table by the window so we could see the water. We weren't really too hungry so we just ordered the fried fish and shrimp basket with cole slaw. Was all delivered quickly and was more than we could eat. Everything was just delicious, the shrimp, fish, and the best cole slaw.... More

the waiters are not familiar with the menu. we asked if the shrimp were the same size on the basket of 6 for $8.00 as the 8 shrimp dish for $12.50. Some said they were the same and some said they were smaller. We had 2 of the $12.50 selection. We should have ordered 3 baskets at $8.00. We would... More

Just across the causeway from South Padre Island this restaurant has a seafarers atmosphere and a varied menu. Prices are reasonable. If your staying in the area for a while, make sure to get a frequent diners card (10 to 20% off) Happy hour from 4 to 6 makes for an even better bargain.

We went to have the shrimp special,,,,1/2# shrimp for $4.75,,,,,you get 11 shrimp,,,,,fried or peel and eat. Absolutely yummy! It's also happy hour so Margarita's are $2.50. You can't beat that! There were 9 of us and Oscar did an... More
