Not at all bad, just not really good. We ordered a wide variety of food for 7 guests. The chef's selection sashimi platter looked very nice. The salmon didn't taste fresh, even though the server claimed it was, along with the tuna. The rolls we...More

What a fun little place tucked in downtown Corpus. The wait staff was so friendly! Shout out to Meagan. We tried the seaweed salad, fire & ice and avocado bomb, which was the bomb.

We've eaten here several times, always well-pleased with the food and service. I don't understand the negative reviews...certainly not what we've experienced. The sushi is some of the best in Corpus Christi. Recommended: a bento box!

Extremely slow service at lunch. The wait staff was rude and I had to get up several times to get silverware, a refill and condiments. The food was mediocre.

Fabulous! Lobster Dynamite will not disappoint. Kay is the best and Boyd is the best chef. Heck, the whole staff is super friendly and great service

We thought we would try a different sushi place that we had never been too. We were a little disappointed. Felt like it was smaller portions, same or higher prices than others. Nice atmosphere but would recommend other sushi places in town over this one.

Yup, I over ate again. Boyd out did himself. We brought some friends that never had sushi and instantly made converts. We had their Avocado Bomb (Avocado stuffed with Soft Shell crab cooked to crispy perfection) and The Lobster Volcano (Lobster and crab roll covered...More
