My family and I went in to have lunch and saw this place. We saw the all of the advertising that they do promoting their appearance on Restaurant Impossible. We walked in and there was no one at the entrance to either seat us or to have us seat ourselves. This should have been a sign to turn around and... More

The food was fantastic. They had a optional buffet where they were cooking fresh seafood, steak,etc and it was amazing. They had the best wait staff I have had in really long time. There were 12 of us and everyone was impressed. The kids had fun listening the live music! The drinks were great and I recommend the coconut margarita!... More

Enchalada was the lunch special. I had the beef, friend the chicken. Very tasty, nicely spiced beans and rice. Shrimp bisque was also good. Plenty of food. Clean restaurant and restroom. Will was a fun, personable server* would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Sapphire Hotel during our weekend stay at South Padre and decided to eat here. Upon walking in, the place felt a little empty and the smell made us wonder if they had had a sewage problem, so we ate outside on the patio, which was very nice and much better than eating outside. The wait staff... More

I have to say that when I walked in I thought I was going to be disappointed just because the lady with the pink hair was all sweaty and exhausted. The buffet looked pretty good , but unless your starving don't recommend because it's pricey. I had fish tacos and nachos and they were really good. The best was the... More

Casual dinning without door seating- a young vibe with eclectic decor. Food is surprisingly good and very inexpensive. Full bar with good service

This was once a fun place to visit with a menu that was a bit more diverse. They have changed it all (due to a lawsuit over the name) and it is not the fun place it once was. Our favorite on the menu was removed and we found nothing of interest to replace it so we said thank you... More
