We went to this restaurant after reading the many reviews and were awe struck. March 17, we visited for dinner. We arrived in time for the oyster happy hour and were in for a treat. The oysters on the half shell were awesome and awesomely...More

Fun place. Friendly and fast service. Oysters tasty. Crab cakes bland and no texture. No service outside while waiting. Crowded and popular. Sea food was only ok.

We were looking for a decent seafood restaurant and were a bit a disappointed. The crab cakes did not have much flavor, they were more filling than anything. My husband got the bacon wrapped shrimp and said it was just ok. The homemade brownie dessert...More

I ordered the peel and eat shrimp which had a tangy, interesting cocktail sauce. I also ordered the two crab cake plate, which came with choice of salad (I indulged in the wedge) and a side order of Gouda Mac and cheese, and coleslaw. The...More

We popped in on a Saturday night. It was crowded but we got a seat in about 15 minutes. We sat upstairs...which means all the waitstaff is continuously going up and down. Our waiter was over booked or just slow. Drinks came out slow, Sushi...More

There used to be two adjacent locations for these restaurants but one was closed down. The remaining one is very noisy and laud and the menu is certainly not as good as the one that was closed. Not tempted to go back.

I really want to like this place better. I have been multiple times with various consultants who always seems to be staying downtown and want to go here. However, the food does not justify the price.

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.
