Did not stop there this trip, but have been there several times on recent vacations. Staff is friendly, has quite a few "exotic" dishes. No flys though, which is a good thing.

Some of the dishes are superb, while others are pricey and do not merit being anything special. The Crab cakes are from Sam's club, while the shrimp on a scewer for 20 bucks ?.....Oh, come-on now...a dish at this price should have a lot more going-on or else cost a lot less money, after-all, Corpus Christi has shrimp coming out...

Had the Barramundi with poblano cream sauce, couscous, and veggies. It was delicious. Chocolate cake was great too.

I live in Corpus Christi. Dragonfly has been recommended by friends, but it has very mixd reviews online. Every time we try to phone them there is no answer so we gave up even trying to go there.

This place to eat will have a great ambiance as your eating next to several different aquariums. Great drinks, some of the own making, and the usuals. Everyone at the table had something delicious to eat. The crab cakes, the ginormous bacon (it's big), the aged ribeye (it was wonderful), and escargot; all of it was eaten with great satisfaction...

Had the barramundi special and it was delicious. Delicious sauce - not too much which made it perfect. Served with fresh vegetables. Everything was cooked to perfection. Also enjoyed the watermelon margarita. The only disappointment was no espresso or cappuccino to have with dessert. Speaking of dessert, the chocolate gelato was not the best since it was a bit grainy/icy.... More

This was our #1 restaurant. We loved dining here with all the great choices. My husband loved the Mussel dish. I could find alternatives for my restricted diet. The dining area is unique and interesting. Great ambiance.

My husband and I have been disappointed each time we have gone to this restaurant. The chef seems to think that only he knows what goes with what on the menu. Once I asked for something other than the side item listed and was told no substitutions are allowed. Another time when I asked for a substitution of one starch... More

I took my mother to lunch today to use a gift card I had received. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant. It was 11:30am.....We were enthusiastically greeted when we arrived and seated right away. Drink orders were taken immediately and our waitress was top notch! She was pleasant, offered to answer any questions we might have about the menu, and... More

I have heard so much about this restaurant that we finally tried it out last week. My grilled fish and shrimp was tasty and fresh. My wife had crab cakes and she enjoyed them but she said they were rich and she would not want more than one. The food was good but not fantastic to me. The cold beer... More
