Have heard about this place and finally went. Sorry I waited so long! It's a little bitty place but very quaint (in a good way). Right on the water. Great service and even better food. Flounder is the bomb!

We lived in Corpus Christi 30 years ago, and the Yardarm was one of our favorite spots. It's a quirky little seafood restaurant in a cute house on the bay. We were surprised and pleased to see the same Greek owner greeting us at the door when we came back for a visit in November. Their prices have definitely increased... More

My husband and I recently dined here twice. The tables are close together. The ambience with the Bay view is quaint and fabulous. The food not so great. Most recently we had fried shrimp. Somebody took a hammer to it and then put way too much spice and salt on it. I didn't eat much the day I ate this... More

Patio Pete, our waiter, was knowledgeable and friendly. We were in search of good seafood and we were not disappointed. The wine list is adequate, not great. Overall it was excellent.

We went back to the Yardarm for our anniversary after having our first formal date back in 1983. The place had not changed, the service was exceptional and the food was great! We were very pleased that we went back since it is a small family owned restaurant. My wife had a great Mexican martini along with her steak. Since... More

It was a hot evening in July, but we sat outside and with the ocean breeze and the shade, it was very comfortable. We were last minute, and the restaurant was full. We had a very attentive, thorough, and professional waiter. My son ordered the drum fish with capers, and my husband and I ordered grilled drum fish. We all... More

The tables were too close together and allowed no space to get in and out. Neither my wife nor I found the food all that great. Too pricey for what we got.

We arrived at 6:30 for our reservation and were immediately showed to our table. Wow, what a view and we weren't sitting at the windows. The restaurant is casual, many men wearing shorts, and nicely decorated in a nautical theme. The service was perfect from the beginning to the end, not rushed, but there when needed. The wine list is... More

The very finest seafood available in Corpus Christi Tx. Reservations are necessary. I had Drum Papillote that was cooked in a brown paper bag, my friend had Pecan crusted Salmon.....topped it off with a French Bordeaux Wine....the very best meal ever. Ambiance was an older home (seclusion with antique surroundings and a fabulous view of the Bay....The best home made... More

We ordered Shrimp Newberg, Black Drum baked in parchment paper with some type of wine sauce and crab cakes. Everything came out looking beautiful. It is very much about the presentation. If you like seafood fried, broiled or baked without a lot of fanfare, then go somewhere else, or go for appetizers and drinks on the patio. The parking is... More
