Dining with a View
Dining in Corpus Christi doesn't just mean tasty food; it also means great views. Sometimes inside and often times outside, there are plenty of places in Corpus Christi to enjoy the food and sights.
Located inside the Art Museum of South Texas, it's like a two for one experience! As soon as you walk through the glass door, the giant wall of windows provides the best view of the USS Lexington, Texas State Aquarium and the enormous cargo ships traveling through the ship channel to the Port of Corpus Christi. Breakfast is served all day....which makes the experience even better. Open 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., closed on Sunday and Monday.

The sunset view at Doc's is just as good as the food! It's one of the only places in Corpus Christi that you can see an unobstructed view of the sunset over the water. Get to this coastal casual, open-air restaurant by car or boat to enjoy the delicious food and yummy drinks.

Sunsets at Snoopy's are some of the greatest. Enjoy the bay breeze and sounds of seagulls on the back deck while you eat local seafood at this long-time Corpus Christi favorite. You can spot the same amazing waterfront view at Scoopy's Ice Cream right next door.

Located on Bob Hall Pier, Mikel May's truly is beachside. It's a laid-back atmosphere with exceptional views of the beach and an even better view of the Gulf of Mexico! The live music and beach air make the views twice as enjoyable.
