    Used to love this place, but will never go back after having the manager be the rudest person on the island. View is great, waitstaff is great... but the hostess/manager ruins it all.

    Changed my order to ensure complete satisfaction. The Mahi-Mahi sandwich was delicious. Get the table in the far right corner as you walk in for the view in the picture.

    Great view. Good burger and fries and bar food. A little over priced for the fare though.

    There is always a breeze in this classic Port A restaurant & the views of the waterfront/marina can't be beat! Try a burger, blackened fish sandwich or fresh ahi tuna salad. There's a bar upstairs too

    Great service & even better food! Get the Cajun Dump if you want a mixture of spicy crab, shrimp & sausage. The Clam chowder was yummy. The peel & eat shrimp is a better deal than the shrimp cocktail.

    My claim chowder was interesting, overdone rubber clam, and a mix of overdone and raw potatoes. My shrimp were tastless. And my wife's shrimp cocktail, the shrimp still needed to be peeled.

    Crab cake meat is nice fine texture w/a light crunchy coating. 2 crab cakes in a serving. Hushpuppies are dreamy dipped in melted butter!

    I'm a huge stickler about po boys (being from Louisiana) and I was highly impressed with their oyster po boy. Amazing service and yummy crab cakes! We will definitely be visiting again.

    Virginia's sits right by the water, so the view is quite wonderful (for Texas's coast, that is). They have great margaritas and plenty of space upstairs to drink them while you wait to be sat.

    Overpriced. Bad food. Bad service. When we asked if the $20 fish entrees were caught locally (the restaurant is literally on the beach) we were told "no everything is frozen." Pity.

    I wish the service matched the food. The waiter refused to split a check even though the menu said it was possible. Waiter (David) was rude. Food was delicious, a little expensive.
