San Padre Island: Bests to Eat, See & Do in early October?

Jump to last reply

Ideas where to eat and things to see while at San Padre Island for a week?

    I assume you are talking about South Padre Island, not San. The food scene at SPI is somewhat limited, but there are several that I can recommend. Liam's is a place that opened this past year. It is owned by a group that also owns a number of other restaurants in the area, but in my opinion this is the best of the bunch. It is more of a fine dining restaurant. But fine dining for beach area. Shorts or whatever are acceptable. Good steaks and seafood. Also it takes reservations. One of the only that does that, although at this time of the year you probably won't need it. The Sea Ranch is also a good place for dining. Overlooking the bay. A much more casual place is Gabriella's. Great house salad and pizzas are wonderful. Very crowded espcecially on weekends. Outside seating is usually available. In the same center as Garbriellas is a breakfast and lunch place called Yummie's. Very good. Dirty Al's is a dump that is very popular and has good hamburgers and fried fish. Very popular. Right next to Sea Ranch. As for activities, the ocean is wonderful and walking on the beach is my favorite past time. The Sea Turtle center is worth visiting. You might want to also take an afternoon trip to Brownsville and visit the Gladys Porter Zoo there. One of the best in the country. Only about 45 minute drive. Have fun. I hope this is the beach you were asking about. Oh, and the Restaurant at the Palm for afternoon happy hour at a small covered outdooor place overlooking the beach and ocean. Good Margaritas.
