Diner Reviews
  • "What can be added to the reputation of Corpus Christi's premier fine dining venue? It is an "experience" in and of itself with breathtaking vistas of Corpus Christi 's marina and bay. Not to be missed if you're visiting our bend along the Gulf of Mexico. With a chef's take on fresh seafood, beef and game, the menu is both comforting and interesting...and there's always a delightful selection on the dessert end!"

  • "The Republic of Texas is a great restaurant on the 20th floor of the Omni that has really great views of the water. The ambience of the restaurant is really nice and relaxed. We were able to get 6pm reservations that morning and I'm glad we did because reservations are highly recommended there. We had the carnitas as an appetizer and they were surprisingly different from what we expected. Our entrees were delicious; beef filet medallions and the ahi tuna. As a side, we shared the green chile macaroni which was really awesome! We were too full to enjoy a dessert but maybe that means going back another time. Our server, Chris, was great. She made us feel comfortable and at ease. It was a really lovely dining experience."

  • "If you are looking for a nice anniversary, birthday type place...this is it. Excellent view of the Corpus Christi Bay, good food, and nice atmosphere. The price is high - no other way to put it, and the service is good, but slow. Don't be in a hurry!"

  • "Having just eaten at Republic of Texas upon my arrival Sunday I decided to treat myself again Tuesday prior to my departure. Fantastic food, fantastic service. Great views and a wonderful place for a special dinner. Bone in ribeye is superb and richly marbled. Caesar salad delicious and the mushrooms are very nicely seasoned and perfectly cooked.. Add Republic of Texas to your list if you are anywhere near Corpus!"

  • "I enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Republic of Texas. The view of the Gulf from the 20th floor is incredible and there are no bad seats. The service was excellent and the food superb. The bone-in ribeye cooked and seasoned to perfection and the asparagus perfectly steamed with tasty hollandaise. Enjoyed a nice bottle of malbec and they have some very good moderately priced bottles. The GM, Luis is very warm and engaging and I look forward to many more returns."

  • "Republic of Texas Bar & Grill never disappoints. Whether you go just for drinks, or a full meal it is excellent. The ambiance is relaxing (with a piano player in the background) and from the moment you enter until you leave you feel like you are the most important people in the restaurant. The service, food and the cocktails are always outstanding. Can't wait to return again."

  • "Had a bone in New York strip cooked just the way I asked, wife had a double cut pork chop that was fit for a party of 3, the sides of Au gratin potatoes were amazing but the rice pilaf was no different than any other we've had. The waiter was responsive and the "assistant" to the waiter was as well. However if you're wondering why the 4/5 on service -- I wish the waiter would have kept my water filled a little more frequently since I like to stay hydrated."

  • "Simply put, outstanding food and service. Hostess (Chelsea) and our waiter (David) we're beyond reproach! Highly recommended!"

  • "Knowing this is a restaurant in Corpus, I didn't have high expectations. Still... The service overall was decent. The problem was the food. I think the chef did the best s/he could do with the ingredients that were far from first-rate. For a restaurant of this caliber and reputation, frozen steak and rack of lamb are simply unforgivable. Garnishes/side dishes (which are charged separately--ridiculous! Sorry, Republic of Texas, but you're just not good enough to pull this kind of arrogance) tasted better than the meat, which should be the star of what is supposed to be the best steakhouse in the city. If the new york strip cost $16 instead of $39, I'd say it's a fairly decently seasoned and cooked dish. The rack of lamb was horrible."

  • "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"."

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."

  • "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."
