We originally stopped in this place because they had canoeing, and some in our party wanted to canoe in the bay. This place not only provided this activity, but allowed me and a buddy to spend some time at the bar, and we also got...More

Next to the water with both indoor and outdoor seating. A good variety of items on the menu. Prices are reasonable. Staff is friendly and service is prompt. A regular stop for us when visiting South Padre Island.

This is a good place for families with a great menu. We ate dinner outside and watched the sunset. We ordered chips and salsa which was so good. The blackened fish tacos were excellent and perfectly cooked. A great choice.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a policy against splitting the check between diners, but our waiter accommodated us by splitting the check. Food was so so, but we have had worse.

Stopped in because the name of this restaurant was awesome. We had the fish tacos, they were pretty good but didn't blow me away. It's kind of pricey, for what your getting. It's a typical tourist town, seafood restaurant.

We took our freshly caught fish to Parrot Eyes and they prepared it blackened, grilled, as fish tacos, and fish enchiladas. I can't say enough about how good their food is. Everyone recommended the enchiladas and we regret not getting more!
