We had a great anniversary dinner at Louie's Backyard. I had the seafood buffet with prime rib; everything was fresh and delicious. My wife had a steak cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was upbeat yet comfortable for a couple's night out. Steve C. took great care of us and topped the night off with a XL slice of a 6-layer chocolate cake. Thank you!

We love hearing great night recaps! I'm so glad the steaks came out perfectly and that Steve took great care of you both. I will definitely pass on the praise. Please come join us again soon.

Until next time,
Dan, Owner

We went around 9:30 at night, we were told it was a great place to relax and either listen to some live music, watch a game or do the night club downstairs. We choose to watch a poker tournament that was on, it was a slow night since it was a Monday night, the food was great, the atmosphere was relaxed. You could tell the wait staff were tired but they were still nice and accommodating. Next time we visit we will be back there again.

We went for dinner and sunset view but ended up dancing! Music was so fun. Thursday night rib special was just what my hubby wanted. I had filet and shrimp and it was good. I asked for zucchini ribbons but got sliced squash. It was ok but a bit disappointing.

The sunset was amazing! Recommend all tourists try it.

Thanks so much for the love, Pam! Sounds like you timed it right coming during a beautiful South Padre sunset (bonus that you got in some awesome dancing). I'm so glad the steak and shrimp were a hit, but do want to apologize for the zucchini ribbons mix-up. Hope you two will come join us again on your next visit!

Until then,
Dan, Owner

Was busy again like last year. The food was still good, although the service could be improved. There were lots of waiters and bus people standing around while we waited 15 minutes to order. And we ordered the buffet. The 1st guy didn't know prices and said to ask our waiter who showed up well after we had been sitting there. Other than that the dinner was fine, and the kids still liked feeding the fish the scraps.
