I eat lunch here about once a month. The service is polite, quick and usually pretty accurate. As with most casual dining places, some menu items are above average, and other items are less impressive.

Salads are good, and best finished with one of the house made dressings. The best ("very good") items on the menu are any steak (simply made, but tasty) and the dinner rolls.

The sandwiches, seafood, sides, appetizers and other items are all filling and enjoyable, but not particularly noteworthy.

Took a family group for dinner. Everyone ordered a variety from steak to seafood. All was very good. Onion rings were excellent. Service a bit slow(restaurant was not busy) and did have to ask for silverware and drink refills. Overall, a fairly pleasant experience.

This is nothing to wirite home to mom about but for this little town, the food is good and comes with large portions. Way too much food for 1 person. The chicken Parm was really good as well as the salads.

Nice little restaurant was across the street from the hotel we were staying at. Went for dinner, full menu, attentive service. They had real mashed potatoes. Ordered the chicken strips with salad and mashed, they said cream gravy, but was not like any cream gravy I have ever had. Tasted good, but not what I was expecting. Service was quick and friendly. Price was quite reasonable.

It's not the place it was back in the day, but it is still pretty good. The onion rings are a must try. They have seafood, steaks, burgers and sandwiches. Service is quick and friendly. Prices are about right for downtown Corpus. Plenty of parking in back.
