Best dinner in Corpus Christi hands down. Only thing I’m mad about is it took us 2.5 yrs to eat here. Kim, our server, was accommodating, conversational and so kind. The food was top notch. Make a reservation for tonight!

I think that we paid too much overall for this experience. Although my filet was good, the side dishes weren't remarkable. Also, we paid $80 for the bottle of Daou wine we had, which wasn't as good as J-Lohr Cabernet in terms of body, smoothness and price $12.

This was our second visit to Katz's and we were not disappointed. For us it is a venue we usually reserve for special occasions like anniversaries or birthdays as it is expensive but not excessive and you definitely get value for your $$. The quality of the menu is high and the service in our experience is very professional. The ambiance is conservative and pleasant and suitable to the theme of the establishment. There is a separate bar area if you want a little more action and the latest sports contest. We recommend Katz 21.

The service was perfection. Andy, David and Danny by far were extraordinary. If it wasn’t for them this review would have been a 1 star. Let’s start with the appetizer. This was the smallest crab cake I have ever ordered in my 45 years of life. Don’t get me wrong the flavor was amazing but nit worth the price tag. The salad was ok. Not great, not bad, but ok. Let’s move on to the soup. Katz is known for their lobster bisque. They decided to substitute it with an inferior shrimp bisque. 24 hours later I’m still trying to understand why. The shrimp bisque was mediocre. Both my swinger and wife passed on it after one taste. As for the entree, we all ordered the filet and lobster tail combo. This was the best part of the meal. The filet was cooked to perfection. The lobster tail was perfect. Loving on to the dessert. We had it packed to go. We did not eat it at the restaurant. After arriving home the dessert was horrific. Something you would get from 2 day old HEB dessert. I forgot to state we only had two options. Key lime pie and chocolate cake. Which honestly neither is appealing to me. Some of the best desserts Katz is known for they neglected to put on the menu. I cannot assume anything so i will leave my opinion out on why they would make that decision. I understand this review may seem negative. But I would like everyone to know this is a wonderful restaurant. Please do not
take this review as a judgement. I have had wonderful meals and memories at this restaurant. They just happened to miss the point on this last occasion. Once again I would like to state the service was impeccable. By far A+. They have some of the greatest staff I have ever encountered. But for me this last occasion the food was unacceptable for the price we paid. And for anyone that would like to know my tab was +$700 for a party of 3 on New Years Eve. This is why I have written this review.

We’ve been traveling to CC/Port Aransas for years but this is first visit to Katz and it exceeded our expectations. We had prime rib, filet and NY strip and they were all excellent, better than the Boulder Cork in Colorado which is my standard. The shrimp/crab app was great as were the sides and desserts. Very well trained and attentive waitstaff. What a perfect spot for a special occasion.

Our holiday feast with our sister and brother-in-law from Montana was delightful. We enjoyed our server Andy and appreciated his knowledge of the menu and advice about wine. Each one of us found our entree done to our order. We will host our son and daughter-in-law in a week or so, and we plan to treat them to dinner at Katz 21.

Although Katz 21 may seem pricey to some, for the past 25+ years it has been one of, if not the best, fine dinning experience in Corpus Christi.

We’ve been there many times and it’s hit or miss. The food was very bland. My shrimp was over cooked. The drinks from the bar took forever and poorly made. It’s either amazing or just so so. The staff is always amazing!

I was looking for somewhere to take my wife, somewhere that would make her birthday special. A gift is guaranteed but a warm calming dinner is not always promised. I have always heard of Katz21 but never ventured in your direction. Now it's time. This would be my very first visit and I made reservations with very high expectations. Needless to say, your property blew my expectations to another world. My wife and mother asked me if this could be a monthly outing, I agree.

Awful food. Worst max and cheese I’ve had. Lobster was dry, minced, and gritty. Steak was ok, but not prime. Bone marrow was small and poorly cut. Would not recommend. Disgusting.

To start we were all disappointed in the small selection of appetizers. 2 of us had filet mignon (cooked perfectly) and 2 had rack of lamb (cooked perfectly but smaller portions than previous visits). 3 of us had dessert with one having a birthday - all 3 desserts were wrong. Our server, Danny, was wonderful and overworked. It was a busy night with kitchen staff and managers helping out. We will go back as the food and service here is usually very good.

Great service! This was our first visit after a recent move to Corpus Christi, and it was a very nice dinner. The wait staff was friendly and proficient though out our meal, and had very good timing to meet our pace. We started with wedge salad that heavy on the Gorgonzola and dressing , I liked the amount of Gorgonzola but could have done with a little less dressing. The lobster bisque had good flavor and a solid choice. The poached lobster appetizer was the only dish that needs a true revamp, it had a fantastic sauce for bread dipping (bread is by request only, not offered), but the slices of lobster are on a small potato cake that ruins the lobsters flavor. We split the prime rib ordered rare, and in the only service misstep of the night it took longer than it should have to inform us that rare was not available, only medium rare. The prime rib was tasty, but more medium than medium rare, and would have benefited from being on a warm plate. They did not charge a split fee for the extra side of mashed potato and whole carrot (I ordered an extra side of solid au gratins). The drinks from the bar were prepared well, and the staff seemed knowledgeable about the drink menu. This is a place we will definitely visit again for a nice dinner out.
