Great deal for happy hour. Sushi rolls were half off, also beer and select frozen drinks were $1 off. Menu was a little limited however the daily specials were a nice addition. Prices are a little on the high side with most fresh fish specials...More

We go to Corpus just to eat at Waterstreet. Love their house salad dressing. I had the crab cakes the first night with vegetable of the day (carrots, cauliflower & broccoli) and salad. Very good. Next night had fried oysters- so good and big- with...More

This was a good place for dinner. Lots of choices. The oysters on the half shell were good, and everyone enjoyed their meals.

The oysters were awesome and the service was attentive. The drum was on special but we arrived late and it was sold out. Tried the salmon instead and it was perfect. Will eat here again on my next trip to Corpus.

Stopped in here for lunch, was very surprised at the excellent menu and service. Try the Pecan crusted Oysters, and the Poor Boys. You can't go wrong.

I took clients to dinner on a Wednesday night. There was plenty of table space for a large group. They had a few local brewed beers and just about anything a normal restaurant/bar would serve on top of that. I'm not much for seafood so...More

Hi, My husband and I have been coming to Waterstreet Oyster bar for over 9 years. We also used to go to the Waterstreet in Fort Worth when it was there. We live in Colorado and cone to Port Aransas every winter for a few months. I am originally from Fort Worth so we enjoy wintering in TX. We've already been to Waterstreet this winter 4 times and it's always good. Today we came for lunch and Trey ( or Tray) was our waiter. I informed him that I am deadly allergic to shrimp, crab, crawfish and lobster, those 4 only. I can have mollusks like oysters and scallops but have to inform the waiter so he can inform the kitchen because I can die but my husband enjoys all those things and I settle for a burger or something else as long as I know it's not cross-contaminated. I made sure Trey understood and he tried to find a menu for people who have allergies which I told him I know what to order, I JUST wanted him to let the kitchen and cook to know. I have to go through this every time I go out for a meal and like I said, I've never had a problem with your restaurant. Today, after I took a couple of bites of my bacon cheeseburger, I started having some MAJOR allergy issues, thinking I would have to use my double epi-pen! I tried to stay calm and when we left, I took some allergy medication, but didn't use the epi-pen. I still have the facial burning and feel horrible but I'm just asking you to please inform your waiters and waitresses about these deadly allergies some of us have. My husband and I brought my nephew to Waterstreet the other evening for dinner. The waitress was awesome and told me what would be safe to order and the meal was fabulous. Some of the new help need to be trained on this issue and know how serious it is. Thank you for your time. Cindy

Talk to the Manager to be sure your problem in communicated to the kitchen staff, even if you have talked to the wait staff. I know this because I also have food allergies.
