We shared a wonderfully simple meal of the 8 and 12 ounce filet mignon, hash brown, and broccoli in hollandaise sauce enjoyed with a panoramic view of the Corpus Christi Bay front. The meal was cooked to perfection and our servers; Wes and Leilu, were exceptionally attentive. We completed our meal with a complementary slice of key lime pie. Everything was first rate. The Republic of Texas is obviously Corpus Christi's premier dining experience.

Expensive but worth it!
My wife and I went for our anniversary and it was perfect.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was our 30th wedding anniversary and I wanted to take my wife someplace special. A friend recommended the Republic of Texas grill on the 20th floor of the Omni in Corpus. I reserved a table online with a note about our special day. The staff was ready with a great table. Our food was excellent and our waiter was good. This is not a bargain hunters dream and the food is pricey but we felt the ambiance and quality was well worth it. They gave us a free dessert and that was a nice finish for the evening.

The view was amazing! The food and service were excellent. If you are visiting Corpus, this place should be near the top of your list..

Great View and Relaxed Environment
Enjoyed eating in the bar area and deciding where to sit with the greatest view of the ocean. The service was great and the cocktails were perfect. We arrived shortly after opening and so not sure if the piano player came in on this particular evening as it had the previous night when we ate as a larger group. Would highly recommend visiting this establishment, the food is great, the service is great and the view is outstanding.

We love the food and the view,
We love the food and the view, so we picked Republic of Texas to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Once we were seated it took quiet sometime before we were waited on and longer to get our drinks. Other than that it was a very good experience overall.

Great place to eat
Pricey but well worth it. I will eat there again. Great view outstanding staff and a steak that is to die for

This is a great restaurant,
This is a great restaurant, but it is difficult to get around if you have any physical limitations.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the views.
Beautiful evening overlooking the water. The servers were very attentive but not intrusive. We had two young children with us who were very happy with their pizza and fries while the adults all loved their entrees. I had the filet Oscar which was delicious. Others InOur group enjoyed lamb,new York strips and filets. The steaks were all cooked to our liking. Very nice evening indeed.

Great Location, Great Food,
Great Location, Great Food, Great Service, Great Scenic View ! A definite must visit restaurant for special occassions, or just to enjoy the best of fine dining in Corpus Christi. The entire staff makes you feel welcome and appreciated. David Crawford on the piano provides the perfect beginning to a wonderful dining experience. Appetizers, Mains, and Desserts were delicious.

Food and the view
I've eaten here many times, and have enjoyed everyone. I have objected to having a potato being a la carte, but that's small potatoes. Or rather a big one and done well. The service is perfect, but most of all the view: there isn't a bad seat in the house. It's at the top of the Omni Bayfront and you see the Gulf, the beautifully lit American Bank Building, or the Lexy.
They are also the only restaurant I know which knows how to warm B&B: with a cradle for the snifter over a tea candle. Not even the French Room does that. Small potatoes of course.
A good pianist, of stable quality. Good technique and taste.
I always dine here when in Corpus Christi.

Great anniversary dinner
We had a nice window table which had a great view of the Harbor Bridge once the sun set. Our service was great. Probably wouldn't do the oyster appetizer again (too much panko on top-couldn't find oyster and had to eat in two or three bites), but the caprese Napoleon was very good. My quail was delicious but I only ate half so I could have room for dessert. My husband's elk was a bit tough but had a great flavor. He ate it all! We finished with creme brûlée and key lime pie, both of which did not disappoint. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and left thinking we should do it again.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
just about perfect
made reservations a few days early, had asked for marina side bayfront and got harbor side back, as always the views are awesome, but because of the time (7:30) the sun was too high, curtains had to be closed for about half the meal. The waitress was fantastic and worked to open the curtains the second the sun set enough but when 50% of the time you have no real view. The marina view was actually empty of people, several empty two person tables, but the waitress made up most of that. The steak, almost perfect, I have dined here before and gotten a better steak, but then, it's ten times better than anywhere else in town even on a not perfect night. My suggestion to the staff that seats you, read the reservation guests requests

Jeff's birthday celebration
The service was exceptional, as usual! The food was delicious, as usual! Love Republic of Texas!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose the Republic of Texas for its menu, location and based on reviews we read. The restaurant lived up to our expectations for my husbands 63rd birthday dinner. Our waiter, Wes, was very helpful and attentive. The lobster and filet mignon were delicious, as was the cheesecake we shared for dessert.

Perfect Special Occasion
This restaurant is a must for date night or a special occasion. Staff was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. We asked for table with a view, done! we asked for blue cheese stuffed olive martinis, done! The food was outstanding. I definitely recommend the chateaubriand. Piano music was perfect for a romantic evening or special occasion with family and friends. We were celebrating our first year wedding anniversary and they surprised us with complimentary dessert. This place has made our list of favorite restaurants.

from beginning to end the experience was exceptional. awesome!

Upscale dining in Corpus Christi
Went here for a later night dinner on Saturday. Food was very good as was the service and view across the bay and city. Definitely one of the nicer places to dine in Corpus Christie.
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Really had a nice and romantic dinner with my wife. Very nice place and would differently come back.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the place to go if you are looking for a good steak! It was definitely worth the price. It has a wonderful view of the ocean and is a great choice for a date night or special occasion. It is family friendly, as well, but I would not bring children under 7 or 8. This is the restaurant we will be dining at from now on when we are on vacation in Corpus Christi.

Celebrating 18th wedding anniversar
My husband and I took our good friends for their 18th anniversary. We had a wonderful time we had steak, pork chops and shrimp. Taste was excellent and staff was wonderful.

Atmosphere was very enjoyable, excellent view and meal. Dining experience was everything I was hoping for, for an elegant evening with my wife.

Business Get Away
My partner and I were treated to a dinner here by our CEO. The food was AMAZING!! I have yet to find a steak that is cooked EXACTLY how I order it. The ambience was excellent as well. There was a piano player who was really good and floor to ceiling windows all around for a beautiful view of the Gulf. I HIGHLY recommend!!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took some out of town friend there for the great view, the food and service was outstanding. Thank you
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed it!
My lovely wife and celebrated our 11th anniversary, at The Republic of Texas Bar & Grill...service was very good, the food was delicious, atmosphere was exceptional!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I wanted to take my wife out to a different place. I had heard of the Republic of Texas, but had also heard it was super expensive. We arrived and were seated at a table with a great view of the water. The menu was good and the prices were on par with the food. the prices were higher but completely worth it. The food and service was great and the views are awesome. We had a great time. My wife could not stop talking about it.
Do not hesitate to go you will not regret it.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the foods and the service. They treated you like royal. The foods was very fairly timing. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Corpus Christi and totally a good restaurant for special occasion and romantic dining.

Pork chops for porkchop
It was the most pleasurable dining experience
I have had in a very long time. The services by
all the staff was very smooth and they could not
have accommodated my fiancé and I any better
especially since I am in a wheelchair.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Republic of Texas was amazing experience hidden in the center of Corpus , The food was amazing , service was outstanding from the valet to the hostess to the waitress everyone was polite and very professional ,would recommend it to everyone!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Was cooked just the way I like it. Beautiful view, will definitely be a returning customer.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went for our anniversary and we were thrilled with the food and service! Outstanding service... will definitely return.

After dinner we had a drink
After dinner we had a drink at the very nice bar and enjoyed listening to the piano player. Excellent evening!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I chose to eat here for dinner celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We had an outstanding experience and really enjoyed the food and our treatment by the staff. We were originally sat in an area near the piano where it was a bit noisy, but when I made our reservation online I noted that it was our first anniversary and they offered to move us to a quieter part of the restaurant with a better view, and we didn't have to ask to be reseated so that was appreciated. All of the food was great so I would recommend everything in general. Noteworthy were the au gratin potatoes, very traditional and very delicious. Overall a great experience.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great evening for dinner.
A great evening for dinner. The staff was absolutely outstanding and customer service was above board. The only thing the staff was missing was their capes because they are super people and certainly need a raise or at least a bonus.

OUR FIRST VISIT - GREAT EXPERIENCE
This was our first visit and we enjoyed it immensely. Although a little pricy, the food quality and excellent service made it all worth while.
We ordered the FILET CHATEAUBRIAND (For two), and there was more than enough food for both of us and we were glad we did not order a salad along with the meal.
Since my wife has had knee surgery and there are several levels of steps involved getting to the seating area to view the water, the hostess was nice enough to tell us that upon leaving, just let any of the staff members know and they would escort us through an “employee only” route that would bypass any stairs.
I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a special and memorable occasion.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance and wait staff...good food but overpriced

Corpus Christi Keeper
I am from Austin however travel to Corpus often. The Omni is were I always stay because of the hotel and The Republic of Texas Bar & Grill. My husband and I always make it a point to make our reservations to eat in your restaurant. We love the tenderness & juicyness of the steaks, the wine list, and deserts. The staff is always very polite and hospitable.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nicest place in town
Republic of Texas is the nicest place in town for dinner. The food is always great, service cannot be beat, and it's quiet and lowlit. Definitely a romantic dinner hotspot. The views are for miles and every seat has one.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine Dining Experience
If you want the fine dining experience that you see in movies or hear about in bigger cities, this is the place to go! Everything from the atmosphere to the service was 5 star! Worth every penny!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time at
This was my second time at the restaurant especially enjoyed the window view. The entire staff werelall very nice & courteous.i would highly recommend Texas Republic restaurant to all of my friends or anyone that wants to celebrate a special occasion.

Over all a very pleasant evening.

Classy but Cold
The service was excellent!! I was staying the hotel & decided to stop by couple hours before our reservation to read the wine list. Not only did they help me find the one I'd like, but let me taste it. Sold me a bottle & let me take it, with a glass, to sip on whole I got dressed. The food was equally was wonderful. The only thing negative was that the food got cold quickly due to the temperature of the room. It was unbelievably cold! We will go back but will be dressed to the weather. Haha!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
great for special occasions
a great place to celebrate or just take your special someone for a nice, quiet, relaxing dinner. you can have drinks before and after while listening to the piano play in the background.

Evening with Good Friends
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.
