Good restaurant

by one_beachlvr

I and another single mom girlfriend are traveling to South Padre this weekend. We can only splurge on one meal for us and our boys (11, 11 and 8). I'm looking for a fun restaurant on the water (bayside), and if they'd let us make reservations for Friday night, even better. If no reservation, how would you suggest we get a good view of the fireworks on the bay?

If you have any fun, affordable, activity suggestions, they are welcome too.

Pirate's Landing, which is actually in Pt. Isabel, before going over the Causeway, on your left, has large windows looking out on the bay. I wouldn't call it an especially 'fun' restaurant, but that's about the best I can think of overlooking the water.

Try Amberjacks or Louie's Backyard. Both are on the bay side of the island. Reservations aren't necessary for either place.

Travel Tips for South Padre Island

The beach!!!

by mj9462

During Spring Break it's balls to the wall nuts, and all other times it's pretty fun as well. Be careful when you decide to cross the bridge to the island though. There are times when it's packed and you'll be stuck on it for hours (at least you have a pretty view). They say South Padre is like the 60's...if you remember it, you weren't there. Where to begin?? Beer bongs, keg stands, dance contests, partying on the beach, going to Mexico (30 minutes from SPI), dancing all night, leaving Mexico at 5AM, not being able to find our room, passing out in the elevator and riding it for about 2 hours whilst asleep (hey---it happens!), meeting people from all over the world, the mechanical bull, the barber chair and of course, getting to take a week off school and spend the time w/ my friends at the beach!!!

An Ocean Full of Fish

by Stephen-KarenConn

Where can you go that you can fish all day and have the restaurant of your choice cook your catch to your specifications. Lots of folks do it every day here at South Padre Island. There are approximately 600 different species, but the most commonly caught fish are the red or black durm, spotted sea trout and southern flounder in the bay, and tarpon, red snapper, king mackerel, amberjack and pompano in the gulf. More than 60 local charter companies and personal guides stand ready to take you on a fishing trip to remember, or you may cast your line from shore as these pictured are doing.

outdoor seating while you wait for a table

by ctietbohl about Blackbeard's Restaurant

This restaurant was always busy when we drove by it. We ate there Monday night. Everyone sits or stands outside while waiting for a table inside. We had to wait about 20 to 30 minutes during the off season, but you will probably wait considerably longer during the weekends or during the high season. My wife and I ordered Onion Rings for an appetizer, and both of us thought they were very good. We both ordered the Monday special, which was Fried Shrimp. Our shrimp, salads and baked potato were very good, and the service was OK. Two iced teas, an appetizer, and two Specials cost $28.31.

good eats

My wife ordered Fish and Shrimp w/fries and I got Wednesday daily special, Shrimp and fish w/rice. It was delicious. My wife said it was the best fish she had ever eaten. 1 Iced tea, 1 soda, 1 Shrimp & Fish, and 1 Daily Special cost $20.30.

South Padre Island...Texas' best beach

by rsleisk

Recorded history begins in 1519, when Alonso Alvarez de Pineda sailed past the Isla Blanca (White Island) while charting the Gulf of Mexico for Spain. Pineda claims giants inhabited the coast, and may have been referring to the Karankawa Indians, a tall people as feisty as longhorn steers. The "Kronks", as they were nicknamed, wintered on the mainland and spent the summer on the island, living on fish and clams. Early stories portray them as cannibals who ate flesh of still-living victims or roasted their foes over campfire.

In 1804, Padre Jose Nicolas Balli, a Catholic Missionary Priest, founded a settlement on South Padre Island called Rancho Santa Cruz where he raised cattle and horses. At the eastern foot of the Queen Isabella Causeway stands a bronze statue of Padre Jose Nicolas Balli clad in a cassock and clasping a crucifix in his right hand. In 1829, the year he died, Balli was awarded title to the Island by the Mexican government. His nephew, Juan Jose Balli, lived on the Island until 1853. Rediscovered in 1931, the site of Rancho Santa Cruz is known as the Lost City of Padre Island. Numerous Balli descendants still live in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
