Great place to watch the sunset while listening to live music. Prices are reasonable. Lots of seating with bay views.

Does it get any better than a South Padre Island sunset with live music? Thanks you for the amazing rating and I hope you'll be paying us another visit soon. Until next time, Dan, Owner

Sports Bar Menu is limited to Sports Bar. However, the Lookout Deck offers waterfront dining featuring a similar menu as the Sports Bar. Thank you
