Been there twice this week. Waitresses were both great. Good timely and fresh. Great fries!!! Ordered calamari, fresh shrimp and oysters on the half shell.

Really great experience & food. They have a bar, a dock where you can see jellyfish & several other kinds of fish, and several family games downstairs to keep everyone occupied while waiting for a table. There were spaces to drive boats up to & dock right at the restaurant. The food was all delicious (except the coleslaw) and our waitress did a great job. We'd definitely come back.

Visited around lunch time and it was not super crowded, we were sat right away. There is no AC but the restaurant has an open concept with the patio all around and bringing in the sea breeze.The bowl of clam chowder was tasty and the salad was very fresh. The chef's choice steak was NY Strip and I really loved the way it was seasoned. The crab cake from my husband's seafood Platter was not tasty but everything else was delicious, including the Key Lime Pie. Definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

When we arrived the parking lots were full. My son told me there was a two hour wait and that the locals were surprised, it's usually longer, I assume. However, they have this great place under the stairs. Beautiful view over the water, full bar, Good live band, great people. We got drinks, played some cornhole, talked to folks, then it was our turn to eat. The service was top notch, Annie was fantastic. Then there's the food. I have spent numerous meals being disappointed with the paltry offerings of some of the local establishments. Not here. Beautiful plates that are more delicious than they look. We were so pleased to get a great meal. Thanks for dinner! We had such a Great time!

We arrived on a Friday at about 5pm, probably a high demand time, we had to wait about 45 minutes for our table, the restaurant has a to go window where patrons can order drinks while they wait.The restaurant has a great vibe, it was hot while we sat at our table but due to the way the restaurant is designed it becomes a giant breezeway, and makes the environment very comfortable. We're had a great view of the bay from our table and we're able to enjoy the sunset.The food that we had was excellent, we ordered calamari as a starter, I had chowder and salad, my wife had seafood salad and my son enjoyed the seafood lovers dish. The food was excellent and the service was great. I'd recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are in the area and in the mood for sea food.


This place is a breath of fresh air compared to many places we visited around CC area. Service was fast, drinks we're great and most importantly, the fresh catch was delicious. First time here, will return again before departing Texas.

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. You're paying for the view. The drinks were fabulous, great bartender. The wait staff very good, fast. We were a party of 11. Pretty large. Good was ok we waited 30 mins for food to be served, 20 mins when we waited to be seated.. I ordered soup and salad. I expected more on the salad at least for the price of $8.00. catch of the day was expensive at 27. The bill was over $400.00 with tips and drinks. I just be expected a little bit more on the plates. The flounder is very thin with mostly batter. It's very warm.. no a/c, go on a cooler day. Not in the 90's. Was a good musician there, but just 1. He did sing with guitar. Nice bar though. Good for drinks. Dinner? Well bring a good amount in wallet.....

Been to this place throughout the years and never been disappointed. Food is good and service is spot on. I must say prices have creeped up a bit and seems the menu has shrunk as well. Still a wonderful place to dine in!

The food is amazing! The view is amazing and the music is as well. They have 2 bars and the service is great. It's an hour wait for upstairs but the time goes fast when there is a nice vibe. I had a great time. If you're just visiting Texas, this place has to be a spot to stop at.

2nd time here and not disappointed either time. Young staff but Very good at their positions considering the hefty business and that they are a bit understaffed. Food is excellent. A definite go to for those visiting the area.

I recommend trying this place during off hours! I had wanted to come here on my trip, but it was a 1.5 hr wait on a Monday night at 6pmWe opted to go at 2:30pm on a Tues for a late lunch instead.Walked right in, no wait, seated immediately, our waitress Jasmine was very friendly, she was attentive and brought our food an drinks out really quickly. They even had our favorite local beer (Wild Acres Brewing out of Ft. Worth).If able, check this place out!

Our meal was excellent! Staff was really nice and prices were not too bad! Their fried cheesecake was to die for!


We had a large party and it was busy (Father's Day!) Despite that, the service and atmosphere were top notice and all 17 people reported delicious food. My only complaint is that I didn't try the fried cheesecake. Definitely recommend.
