Had a lovely Sunday breakfast meal with a super funny, friendly waitress. Hubs ordered the Texas -sized cinnamon roll, which totally lived up to its name! Our return visit for dinner later in the week did not disappoint. The views are lovely, the location on a pier, unique.

Pier 19 is a must for our yearly girls getaway. This is not a fancy place but the food is really good and the staff is a lot of fun.

Went for a quiet dinner Thursday night. We barely sat down and instead of a welcome we were instantly reprimanded for having 2 pieces of gluten free bread in a zip lock bag. I am gluten intolerant so I usually ask if the kitchen can accomodate my burger with my gluten free version if they don't stock gluten free bread.... More

We plan on returning here--just for the hushpuppies! They were great. The seafood enchiladas were a bit fishy. If you choose to sit out on the pier, just be aware that it shakes quite a bit. This didn't seem to bother people, and it was fun.

We robe into Port Isabel with our puppies visiting the antique flea market Sunday morning, when suddenly the Queen Isabella bridge closed due to a cycling event. So we headed over to Pier 19 and had delicious Crab Louie and shrimp Louie. Dog friendly on the middle patio where an enclosure of tropical birds chatter away. Thank goodness the manager... More

This restaurant has been one of my long time favorites. Hard to get to but worth every speed bump (in & out)! My newest favorite is the "Coctel De Cameron" aka Mexican Shrimp Cocktail. At first I was a bit put off by what I thought was stale chips. However, after considering the big chunks of big shrimp instead of... More

What a staff! Along with good food and a lot to choose from, the view was awesome. Entertained by a pirate ship while dinning was a treat. The staff worked as a great team to serve the entire group with ease. Any future trips to the island will include eating at Pier 19.
