Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is above par in every arena. I received a personal phone call to confirm my reservation; the staff provided exceptional service; the food was outstanding; the cocktails were made to our specifications; the 180 degree views of the bay were beautiful; the pianist played wonderfully in the background, and a conversation could easily be heard without yelling."

  • "I took my family there to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. We were awestruck by the Texas rustic, yet elegant, ambience and with a 180 degree view of the bay. We all ordered steaks, including my 10 year old from the child's menu, and we were not disappointed. I had the bone in New York strip and it was the best I have ever had. The side dishes are served "family style" and there was plenty to share. The mashed potatoes were awesome and without the gravy. The asparagus was very tasty that our 10 year old tried it for the first time and liked it. It was great to find an upscale restaurant that caters to families as well. If you are looking to spend the night with your date only, this will buy you huge points on the "to impress scale"."

  • "Saturday was our 18 year Anniversary. The Table had a fantastic view. The Dinner was one of the best I can remember. I had the rib eye, and it was cooked to perfection!!! The staff did a great job. I would recommend the restaurant to any one. It was a little expensive , but well worth it. My wife and I will be back, Thank you for making our night so special.... Cheers"

  • "I really enjoyed the dinner and atmosphere. You have good chefs and preparation and presentation of the food was very good. The steak and salmon including the sides were so enjoyable. The steak portion was generous and enjoyed again as a leftover meal, Thanks to the friendly hostess and wait staff. It all made for a wonderful total dinning experience."

  • "Our favorite restaurant outdid itself on the 4th. The venue overlooks Corpus Christi Harbor and the City and HEB host an absolutely wonderful light and fireworks display from the bridge and USS Lexington. We made our reservations on 8/3/13 for 7/4/14 and we were welcomed with the table we requested and the usual wonderful food and service. The whole restaurant stopped and watched the show and cheered at the end. What a wonderful night."

  • "We arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation and noted that there were not many patrons at the establishment at that time. Once seated, our waiter advised us after approximately 20 minutes into her service that the "kitchen was a bit backed up". It turned out that it took nearly 40 minutes to serve us our meal after we ordered. Food was excellent and worth the wait. Highly recumbent the shrimp. I looked at my watch and noticed nearly two hours had passed since we arrived. I said to my wife that this reminds me of a "European type of meal", all that was missing were the relatives and their lively discussions of politics, current events, and future plans. We both felt the service was a bit "robotic" at the bar and at the table."

  • "Nice view, very nice setting. Good place for upscale dining. The only nice restaurant open in CC on Sundays. The food was good and the service was professional. I found the wine list to be disappointing..moderate quality at an excessive markup."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Corpus Christi does not have very many upscale restaurants, so I ask that it remain upscale and not let it turn into a sports bar. On our last visit there was a lot of cheering at the bar over a sports game on the TV. Let's leave all the cheering at the sports bar not at this restaurant."

  • "What you pay for here is the view, food is basic and was under seasoned."

  • "Poor service. Entree over cooked the under cooked and then over cooked. Sides arrived room temp. Long wait time to order and receive courses. Mgr offered free drink and desert, but anniversary dinner ruined. SPENT $250 FOR A DENBY ' TYPO OF DINNER."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Asked to be seated at a window on my online reservation. No mention of it was made when they called to confirm or at the restaurant. Food was good but not worth the price. Service was very slow. Our server disappeared numerous times and wasn't to be seen for 20+ minutes at a time. It was also quite convenient that they didn't have a table available for our 7:00 pm reservation and invited us to have a drink at the bar where we ordered 2 mojitos. Those two drinks ran me $25 (for simple syrup, lime juice, rum, and a few mint leaves)! I would have expected better service and food from a restaurant that claims it's the best in South Texas."

  • "We were visiting from out of town and knew that we wanted to celebrate with a nice, expensive dinner that also had a romantic atmosphere. This was the perfect place. The food was worth every single penny, the service was spectacular and the ambience was just wonderful. It will be a place that we continue to visit when we are in the area. "

  • "I had the 16 ounce steak, my wife had the chicken.....Wow they were great!!!! We were in the restaurant for 1.5 hours on our anniversary so we weren't in a hurry, but it took a while. Fortunately we had plenty of things to talk about. "

  • "We have been going to the Republic of Texas for over 5 years now. It never disappoints. Food is always amazing. The venison is to die for. Melt in your mouth good. And the cheesecake is made from scratch everyday. Great for a special occasion."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The food was good. However, service was awful! There is a strong possibility that I may never eat here, or host an event here again. Very disappointed in the subpar performance of my waitress. What should have been a nice, "early Happy Mothers Day Dinner," was complete and utter failure! I would say that a full refund, or at least a, "Rain Check," is in order."

  • "We went here for a girls night out and had a wonderful time. They were able to change our 9pm reservation to 8pm which worked out great for us. Our server (Johnny) was exceptional. The food was wonderful. Great bread and the sides were large! The steaks were done right and the dessert was delicious. "

  • "Amazing sweeping views of Corpus Christi Bay, downtown and the Harbor Bridge. A Zen moment appearance of a peregrine falcon and excellent conversation with our server Wes. My wife loved her Cucumber-tinis ! Serving portions quite large making the dinner an excellent value. My pork chops were perfect though my wife felt her Mahi could have used an accompanying sauce or glaze. Thank you for the anniversary pastry, light and tasty. The glare of the sun setting through the west windows was a little distracting and the decor is a little dated, however we have found the ambiance we have been seeking since moving to South Texas. Well done Republic, well done."

  • "Your staff was genial, especially our waiter (Cruz) and the hostess. The view and the quiet atmosphere made for a very pleasant evening. I generally prefer filet's; however, Cruz recommended the New York strip and it was exceptional. "

  • "Food is good but when you shell out $75-100 per person you expect more. The best thing about this restaurant is its view but you can only see the view best during daylight so go around 6-7 depending on time of year. In CC, this place is the best for steak but if you're visiting CC you probably want good seafood. Our salads were huge, too big actually. The side dishes were somewhat bland. The steaks were good though, very flavorful. The drinks were satisfying but I've had so many better cocktails elsewhere. I think they bank on the fact that they ARE the steakhouse in CC. You can go to Outback but that's not a steakhouse. Good service but we had 4 people waiting on us making it hard to tell who we should ask for the bill."

  • "Corpus Christi's only choice for Chicago's Allen Brothers prime beef. 24 Oz. bone in rib eye for $50 is less than you would pay for the same steak frozen and shipped to your home. Oysters Omni beat the Rockefeller style by a long shot. Served hot, the house made parmesan crusted bread with soft butter u=can be an appetizer."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The view was indeed amazing. I had requested a window table for our dining and we were seated at the window. The service was not quiet what I had expected for an upscale restaurant, but it was good. The server told us that they are known for their steaks, and my husband and I both had to send ours back. Mine was uncooked, his was way overcooked. Because of that, our food did not come out at the same time. We had our side items, and no steak. When the steaks came out the 2nd time, they were cooked correctly."
