8 Places in Corpus Christi to Dine Outside

by Visit Corpus Christi Texas

With 288 sun-filled days in Corpus Christi, Texas, that means we get to enjoy the outdoors much longer! It also means we have an abundance of restaurants with outdoor patios to kick back on all year long. Here are a few favorites.

1. Snoopy’s Pier

Sure, Corpus Christi is situated right on Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, so seafood should be abundant. But some eateries just know how to go above and beyond. One such eatery is Snoopy’s Pier. This kid-friendly seafood haven is located right on the water underneath the JFK Memorial Causeway. They’re serving up delicacies like the oyster sandwich, shrimp creole, and a deviled crab plate.

2. Doc’s Seafood and Steak Restaurant

Also located under the JFK Memorial Causeway you’ll find Doc’s Seafood and Steak Restaurant. The waterfront dining experience is sure to impress, but the menu will simply sweep you off their feet. Choose something from the raw bar, or maybe something fried is more your speed. Whatever you pick, you’re sure to love it.

3. Brewster Street Ice House

Brewster Street Ice House brings you 4-star cuisine in a comfortable and casual setting. Kick back on the patio while listening to the sweet tunes from the live band. The seafood tacos are to die for, plus, every Monday from 5 p.m. until closing time, kids eat free!

4. Taqueria Almeida

Don’t judge Taqueria Almeida’s grub by its facade. Just because you see a small taco stand, doesn’t mean the food won’t knock you off your feet. For an extra kick, be sure to ask for the green salsa!

5. Hester’s Café

There’s nothing quite like brunch on the bay. On Saturdays, Hester’s Cafe offers a delicious brunch spread that will get you ready for the day ahead. They recently even opened a location in the Art Museum of South Texas, so you can start your day with a coffee and griddle toast before perusing the art fixtures.

6. Boathouse Bar & Grill

This is island dining with style.; Boathouse Bar & Grill boasts a two floor setup with a glorious patio overlooking the bay from the second floor. The Sunday brunch is the perfect way to end your stay in Corpus Christi.

7. Thai Cottage

A little bit of Thailand has made its way to Corpus Christi via Thai Cottage. Munch on delightful Thai dishes like Pad Thai, eggplant tofu and curry out on the patio while you listen to the tranquil sounds of the fountain.

8. Executive Surf Club
