I have been coming here from the Houston area on business for the last ~30 years. Always filled to capacity, with great food, great/attentive service, with reasonable prices. Best restaurant in the downtown CC area.

Our large group had a wide variety of meals, so I could sample a dozen mains and appetizers during my visit. The sushi is good, miso soup excellent. Salads are fairly basic and the lack of Ranch dressing option was surprising for my Texas group...More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Corpus Christi. The selection of sushi and seafood and beer is Top Notch. Sometimes the service is a little slow. Overall I love going here and I'd go back every time that I'm in Corpus Christi. I...More

This is one of the best places to eat in downtown. The food is very good. The only drawback is that it is usually loud and crowded.

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.
