Nice menu with a variety of types of food. Wait staff is good, and food is always good! If you have a problem, all you have to do is make the staff aware of it and it will be taken care of. Very friendly environment.

Hands down - this is the BEST on the island! Worth waiting for if you go when it's busy. The camarones diablos are just amazing and always delicious. Great service. The fumi salad is so good. If you go at dinner you can chat with the owner - what a nice guy! Highly highly recommend!!!!!

Looked at reviews so thought we would go. Place was packed so we thought yay!!!! Negative: Food was disappointing. Oysters flat and hard with no taste, shrimp hard no taste, calamari hard and tasted like batter (I took off batter to taste the calamari), all were covered in way too much batter and cold on the inside. Food seemed like... More

Cap'n Roy's is excellent. Small, casual restaurant, seating about 75 people, serving some of the best seafood and Mexican food on the island. The Guacavechi is so delicious I had to come back 2x this week for more. If you're fortunate enough to be here when Cap'n Roy is here, you are fortunate, indeed. He's the charming "chief cook and...

We visit South Padre Island every summer. We usually arrive with a party of at least 15. They are always very accomodating, thr food is always fabulous and the service is great. You cannot go wrong with anything you order, everything is consistently good. The guacamole is fresh and tastes amazing and be sure to try the Fumi Salad.

We both got the grilled fish and shrimp and it was wonderful. Also, try their camoronitas diabolitas. They are award winning and you can see why. Definitely worth it. Our total bill after tip was under $40
