Steakhouse
Alfonso Salazar, better known as “Dirty Al” originally started shrimping as a young man with his father and 6 brothers. In 2003, he and his youngest son, Cameron, who graduated from Culinary School, transformed his bait stand into a restaurant where together they have been known for having “The World’s Best Fried Shrimp”! In 2005, his other two sons returned home to help grow the business. To this day, they now own 7 restaurants on beautiful South Padre Island and across the valley and continue to bring only the “best” Gulf Seafood to each customer’s table.

Fabulous food and service. The filet was phenomenal! The Mango Martini was delicious! The chocolate deseret that looks like a dinosaur egg was the best part of the meal! This place is a must

A spectacular dinner on the waterfront deck. Perfect time to watch sunset. The food was delicious but wish the steak was a bit more charred. The lobster yum. Great lighting and ambiance.

Liam's Steakhouse delivers a 4 star dining experience. It's a Chicago-style steakhouse, with good seafood selections available. Specialty cocktails were very good. Oysters on the half shell were super fresh and served ice-cold. The fresh ceviche was off the charts. The entrees, a lobster tail and fresh snapper, were both good. The star of the meal was the chocolate bomb, a 6 inch tall hollow chocolate egg, opened by the waitress pouring hot chocolate sauce in a cross-cross pattern on top. The egg opened like a flower blooming, revealing vanilla ice cream, fresh fruit and nuts inside. Awesome dessert! Stop by Liam's, for the chocolate bomb if nothing else!

Johnny was our waiter and was really "Johnny on the spot!" He offered good recommendations for the Salmon. Martinis were smooth and cold and the coconut cream pie was fantastic, as it has been for the last several years! Requested a window table and was pleased that the request was fulfilled. It was windy so the 'wave' action on the bay was interesting to watch. Procedures for Covid 19 were adhered to. We will definitely be back next year!

Ok. Let me start by saying I usually love this place, but this time it was a fail.
I felt very unsafe. Place was very crowded and hosts were wearing masks under their chins and other service helpers were wearing them under their noses. Our server did wear his properly and I was grateful for that!
My snapper was overcooked and tough, although my partners Mahi was great as were the martinis!

This restaurant really needs to improve on selecting their staff. The hostess was extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming. She had a look like if our presence bothered her and they had just opened up. She walked us to our table effortlessly. We really wanted to turn back around and walk out but we drove an hour to come and eat here based on friend’s recommendation. She was the exact same way with everyone else that walked in and that she walked to their tables. Our waitress started off the same, but she softened up a bit. None of the staff there looked happy to be there. Never again will we return here.

As for the food, it was good, but nothing worth going back for with that type of atmosphere.

Excellent service, awesome wait staff, was incredibly pricey but in all well worth it. Wished they'd pit in place a dress code though to give it a nice feel for customers and would have preferred not have to deal with children.

We look forward to going to Liam's whenever we go to South Padre Island on vacation. On our most recent vacation to South Padre we ate there twice. On our first visit during that trip, our server Adrian, was exceptional. He was very friendly and provided awesome service. We went a second time during during that week and was disappointed that he was not working that night. The atmosphere, view, and food at Liam's is top notch.

Disappointed with service and quality of food. I always visit this place when I go to the Island. I look forward to dinner! But on this visit my food was bland and the service was disappointing. Don't know if the business changed cooks?? but something is off!

It was okay. I think it was over priced and the steak was not that great. It was prepared the way I asked, but nothing set it apart from other boring steaks.

My husband and I were on vacation to South Padre and Liam’s made for the perfect, quaint, and delicious dinner on the water. Our waiter (Joe) was fantastic and added to the wonderful evening we had. We both had the red snapper (to die for), gulf oysters and a glass of wine. We will definitely be back to Liam’s!

This place had a very nice ambience, and our server was prompt and courteous. We ordered the bone in ribeye, it was very tough and fatty. I expected a better cut for the price. We also had the lobster bisque, which was very good. I did not care much for the baked potato as well. I am guessing we should have ordered fish.
