Description: Irie's Island Food is an extra casual, very small restaurant serving lunch only. Hours of operation are seasonal in this vacation town. We feature fresh handmade food prepared by the chef/owner who is a graduate of the Culinary institute of America. Creative tacos on house made tortillas, Hawaiian, Asian, American/tropical, and international cuisine is offered at our establishment. We also make New Orleans style beignets from scratch, roast our own coffee, and even have creme brulee to go!

Great variety of food and great food. Shrimp taco was a meal and also had crap spring rolls. Delicious. Went back that night for beignets with custard cream. AWESOME! You have to and it’s worth the wait.

We spent several days in Port Aransas and this was our first stop to eat right after a nasty rainstorm. The insides are nothing special, but the food is excellent. It was the best meal we had in a vacation town littered with not so good restaurants.

We stop in at least once every trip to the island. We learned the hard way to show up at opening time and be prepared to order everything you might want. They sell out and run out of places to sit pretty fast.

I’m so glad Irie’s was recommended to us by a “local”. The food here was fresh, delicious and seasoned perfectly. One day I tried several of their tacos and another day I tried the amazing beignets with a friend. My final meal was the shrimp fried rice - Wow! Irie’s is tiny and frequently crowded, but it’s worth the wait! I can’t wait to return.

Irie's was recommended by the nice lady that owns Gratitude's and we were so pleased! The three of us ordered different dishes and they were all so yummy. The place was packed but the servers and customers were all friendly and nice. We shared an outdoor table with a cute couple from Austin which added to the friendly, quaint atmosphere. I plan to eat there every visit to Port A!
