“Great breakfast/resonable prices”
Review of El Buen Pescador

Ranked #16 of 51 Restaurants in Port Isabel
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 September 2018

Trying out some of the smaller hometown type restaurants this trip to the Island on South Padre. All good, but the overhead fans need extensions added to the cords so one can turn them off. Food got cold too fast. Servers could come around more often to see if you need a refill on your coffee. Giant flour tortillas included.

The available parking near to the door was the reason we stopped for breakfast. First appearance looked like a rather unkept restaurant. The fans were on high and made it very uncomfortable. We changed tables and were more comfortable. Our food was prepared quickly which was great. We ordered a ham and egg taco. The eggs had no flavor and “ham” was very thin sliced lunch meat. Not a great choice. We had hoped for a place to come after church but will keep exploring for options.

Read some reviews of the restaurant and thought we give it a try. Impressed with the all you can eat fish/shrimp @ $11.95 with a large serving which was plenty. Kids had burgers/fries which were fair. Establishment is small and service was fine. Passed on dessert, based on 5 stars we gave it a 3.

The food is great and the prices are the best in town. The all you can eat fish and shrimp is the best deal in the area.
It’s not fancy but it is clean and the service is good. Every meal is cooked to order so allow time but you will not be disappointed.

Great tasting food and very generous portions. Kids loved the fried shrimp and fish and calamari appetizer!
Friendly service and nice casual/family atmosphere.
