Diner Reviews
  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I was looking for a fine restaurant with a good view of the Corpus Christi Bay and this was it. It has a great view of the Bay and furnishings were very nice. The quail appetizer was really tasty. They offer several prime steaks and fish. Being in a Coastal city, we went for fish and we were not disappointed. The fish was fresh and properly cooked - the texture and flavor were both excellent. The price was fairly high, however. To give a comparison, each item was just a few dollars cheaper than Ruth's Chris, most entrees had no sides included, and the sides were large and meant to be shared with the table, just like Ruth's Chris. It's in an Omni Hotel and, if you aren't staying at the Omni, parking may be an issue."

  • "My hubby and our daughter enjoyed our dinner experience. It was my husband's 4th birthday. Our servers were excellent and the food was excellent as well. We ordered desert to take home and we got an extra birthday desert. Over all , we had a great birthday. We tookaa lot of amazing pictures. And we will cherish this memory forever. Thank you."

  • "Two hour wait for food was excessive. Fantastic server tended to our needs. Evidently 18 top was ahead of us with large order. That was not the issue. A table of 2 seated an hour after us, happened to be the mayor. They were served before us, and left 30 min before us. Timing with an 18 top ahead? Questionable. Service, food quality, all excellent."

  • "If this were Chili's, I would have rated it 5 Stars all around, but I expected more for the price I paid. For example... the server asked which dish belonged to whom when the entrees were brought out; we were not given separate plates and silverware with our desert my wife and I were sharing. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't close to a 5-star rating. Yes, I would recommend Republic of Texas to friends, but not without letting them know a few minor (not major) details."

  • "This was our second visit and we brought 4 friends for dinner. Menu prices seem high at first glance bur when food arrives, and you see the portion size and quality, plus the outstanding taste, it's very worth it. The Mayor was present and said hello. I don't think there is not a table without a scenic view. The staff goes out of the way that all services are impeccable. We will return soon."

  • "First I have to say that the food was outstanding as always. This was the tenth year my wife and I celebrated our anniversary with Republic. We have always appreciated being pampered and treated special. This year for our 30th anniversary was not filled with that special feeling that we have come to love. Our server seemed to have somewhere else that she wanted to be. She was not rude or anything like that, just appeared that she was not enjoying herself. We have always had the most professional and friendly service. When we finished our main course she just brought the bill, not even offering any desert. Something seems to have changed at Republic and I hope they find out what it is and go back to the way it used to be."

  • "We took my aunt who was here visiting from Alberta, Canada to Republic of Texas because of the excellent views of the city. We had an excellent meal and the service was outstanding. She was very impressed with her steak and that the server was able to recommend the perfect red wine to accompany it. The drinks are somewhat expensive, but are always worth it- great margaritas!"

  • "This place has honestly been one... wait...the best place I have eaten at. I've eaten at expensive locations such as Texas de Brazil in San Antonio, but everything as a whole...the view, the workers, the fast service and the constant service, the sides that can be easily shared for 3...definitely going to be mine and my girlfriends spot for our anniversary. Also to note...free VALET!"

  • "There's nt much to choose from for fine dining with a view in Corpus Christi. This place was very nice with excellent ambience. My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement here and were very pleased. This wait staff and hostess were very nice and accommodating. However, despite have two waitstaff and an assistant assigned to our table, frequency of service was lacking."

  • "Great place to enjoy dinner. The view is spectacular, however, if it's foggy, you can't see a thing. Dinner was delicious."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Great view and excellent food preparation. Host/hostess very professional. Servers generally enthusiastic but short on knowledge, so they rely on pat answers they've been schooled to give. We visit about every 6 months and we've not seen the same servers from a previous visit. Pay attention and look for clues to to the real answer to your question."

  • "Our dining experience was absolutely fantastic. Treated a lady to dinner and she could not keep her hands off me. We had a wonderful time before, during and after!!! Needless to say she was impressed by Republic of Texas and I reaped the rewards."

  • "Choices were limited, however the food was wonderful, and the waitstaff was attentive. They had a limited menu for the evening but had 5 separate entrees, soup/salad choices and dessert included. Appetizers were seperate. It was pricey - so it's definitely a special occasion restaurant for me."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "steaks were amazing. perfectly cooked to our order and seasoned well. we ordered the salted carmel chocolate cake for dessert. I have never ordered "salted carmel" before and I was quite surprised at how very, very salty it was. guess the name should have given me a clue. I scraped the carmel drizzle off the cake. I'll order something different next time for dessert. overall - very good dinner. service was extremely good - very attentive, polite and accommodating."

  • "The food is always fresh, and delicious, and we are always waited on in a prompt manor. The prices are fair, considering you don't have to worry about screaming children. We love this restaurant, and will be back very soon."

  • "Made a last minute reservation for my wife and I on a sat night. The view of downtown corpus was wonderful... Even as the fog set in! Food was outstanding and the wine list was just marvelous, quite the selection. The service was good, and for a "date night" with your wife it most definantly cannot be beaten. I'd absolutely recommend the republic of texas and look forward to returning."

  • "Asked by a friend for a great restaurant and setting for a meaningful meal gathering, I thought of RTB&G. It was a first time for me, and my friend and our guests were delighted with the food, drink and overview of the Corpus Christi Marina. The wait staff was charming and efficient. We asked for a view and got it. We expected great food -- 'nuff said. My filet was perfect, among the best I've ever had. Delicious sides. Great side salad. Couldn't ask for more. Pricey? Yep -- and worth every penny. If there's a special occasion in your future, business or personal, make it RTB&G."

  • "When we decided for our thirtieth wedding anniversary to take an off season trip to the coast, my wife and I could not pass up dinner at the Republic of Texas. The manager welcomed us personally and escorted my wife and me to our table. The wait staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The menu was outstanding and all our selections were prepared perfectly and presented beautifully."

  • "Our daughter gave us a gift certificate so we could use it for our anniversary. We really enjoyed the experience and by coming on a Sunday during the holidays, there were very few people in the restaurant. We received a lot of personal attention and all our questions were answered thoroughly. We were greeted warmly and were served by folks who believe in being passionate about what they do and doing it with pride."

  • "Made online reservations for 5:30 pm as next listed available was 7:30 pm. Arrived at 5:20 pm and we were the first patrons there. Our guest arrived and we were seat in a quiet location with a wonderful view. Service was prompt and friendly. Waiters were attentive and the food was good. They allowed my wife and I to split an 8 oz salmon with no grumbling. We talked till 8:30 pm. There were plenty of tables available through out the evening. I was left wondering why there were no 6 or 6:30 pm reservations available online when the restaurant was empty. A minor inconvenience but one that should be cleared up. I may phone next time instead of using OpenTable for this restaurant."

  • "Server was cold and unfriendly. Treated us as fi we could not afford the meal. The food was plain, no presentation, just a pc of meat on top of a very large and vacant plate. The wine was even more disapponiting. By the glass, it tasted old and somewhat bitter, For a high-end restrauant, the wine should be the very best whether from a new bottle or by the glass. We are not coming back and are telling our friends that at $136 for an early evening meal you are not worth it."

  • "I am newly moved to Corpus Christi, and I had expected a very good evening, but was disappointed. Lovely view, adequate wine list. But the staff didn't understand what it meant to butterfly a steak for one of our party who prefers well done meat. My sirloin was very salty. And I have had creamed spinach at steak houses from Manhattan to Beverly Hills. I have never encountered anything like what they served, and that is not meant as praise. It wasn't quite Outback, but at these prices I would think twice. Open Table has two restaurants in Corpus. I'd do the other one."
