Needs A LOT of work! – First time to Corpus Christi and saw the good (amidst a few bad) reviews of the seafood restaurant. We were definitely expecting more of an upscale ambiance and were a bit disappointed upon walking in with the completely open floor plan including the kitchen and server area. Not only could we watch our food being made (good thing), but we were also able to see the server's mess of an area (bad thing).
The floors looked like they had not been swept in a week, very unappetizing. Within 5 minutes we over-heard the bartender complaining to another guest about them having to cover someone's shift and how he better show up later so they can leave.
Good thing was, my Grey Goose martini was only $7! Other "upscale" places it's usually a minimum of $12.
The wait wasn't too long and the food looked good, however, the service was HORRID. She never told us her name, abruptly came to our table and immediately asked " do you know what you guys want?" She seemed very P.O'ed the entire time and never once cracked a smile.
The stuffed mushrooms were actually really good. It comes with some kind of yummy sauce. the wedge and ceasar salad were mediocre. I got the special, blackened scallops over a garlic cream sauce. The scallops were VERY small and way over seasoned. The fried shrimp...well, it's fried shrimp.
Over all: Food-OK
I'm hoping the manager/owner of this place pays more attention to the details in the future. I would not visit this place again!
Always Great – I was in Corpus this weekend and went back to an old stable seafood place that i CRAVE.
Fantastic service , Great Food - Love the shrimp picayune and the Blue Fin Tuna special was done perfect! Too bad they dont have one back home, but I am glad they are still around.
