Food and service was great! We were not originally scheduled to go there for lunch, but the power was out at Black Beards so we had to find another restraunt quick. We had approximately 30 people. They were professional. We needed some clarity on the bill, the manager sat down with us himself and helped us. Thanks a million.

Thanks for visiting and allowing us to step up to the plate when there was some power issues at Blackbeard's. We are glad we were able to assist and provide you with a great lunch and hope to see you all back next time for a planned lunch.

We offer several private banquet rooms and a great array of catered options (we are a preferred caterer for the City of South Padre Island's Convention Centre), so we may be able to help in more ways than you even thought!

Thanks again,
Mike

We were staying at the Schlitterbahn resort, so we thought we try this restaurant one night. We arrived around 8 for a late dinner. I like shrimp so I was excited to see what the restaurant had to offer.

We were seated with a ocean view. Our first waitress seated and got us our drinks but she seemed to disappear, I believe she was just busy with a few larger tables. We ended get another waiter who took good care of us, even offered us a free dessert which we did not end up using. Nonetheless, I still appreciate the offer.

My 10 year old daughter is a picky eater, so I'm glad they had pizza and such as I was unsure they would be able to accommodate her tastes. I had convinced her to try the shrimp, so we ordered a kids pizza and shrimp plate. She ended up liking the shrimp. We loved seeing her enjoying some new foods.

As for me, the menu had a variety of shrimp offerings. The Peanut Butter Shrimp caught my eye, it was look two of my favorite things, could they co-exist? I asked if
they had a sampler plate with maybe a variety of shrimp, they have a trio plate, but there is such a variety of flavorings. I would not have minded more, I eat keto style so I'm pretty much going to ignore the rice.

Nonetheless, I got the peanut butter shrimp, it kind of was like an asian peanut sauce, but I also could taste the peanut butter. It was very good, I enjoyed this unique combination very much.

So, in summary, this is shrimp restaurant, come prepared to indulge in shrimp, and you will enjoy yourself.

princepanchal,
Thanks for spending some time with us and sharing your experience....many are tempted by our selection of steaks, salads, burgers, pizzas and sandwiches but of course we are the Shrimp Haus so several dozen varities of shrimp are available including our award-winning coconut shrimp and my personal fave, chicken-fried shrimp where Texas and the coast collide head on!

Thanks again and glad that we were able to be a part of your daughter's expanding culinary tastes!

Our family of four had dinnner here on a weeknight. Our first experience at this location. We found a $9.99 coupon in the local flyer for fajitas and thought we would try it. The beef fajitas were a large portion and we also had fried shrimp and coconut shrimp. All menu items we had were excellent.
We found the atmosphere inviting and view of the ocean from the second floor location to be great for dinner.
A stage was located for live music and large TV's in the bar for sports events.
All of us enjoyed our meals and the service was great. Management was walking the floor and checking in on each table. We will be back for sure our next vacation!

We recently visited Schlitterbahn Waterpark for the day and enjoyed the Shrimp Haus for dinner. We ordered the crab cakes, and they prepared them just the way I like them-nice and crispy on the outside. We split the Triple Shrimp, and I liked all three- fried, coconut, and pecan crusted. It was served with roasted red potatoes and steamed vegetables. Very good! We sat out on the patio so we could watch kids riding the Boogie Bahn, and have an unobstructed view of the beach. Can't beat it!

Plus during the outdoor waterpark season, you have a great view of those attempting to master the wave at the Boogie Bahn.

We hope to see you back dining with us again soon,
