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.

Food was delicious. We actually visited the restaurant twice during our stay and really appreciated the ability to make a reservation. Our second visit was interrupted by mosquitoes on the patio. It was so bad that we had to have our food boxed and go inside while waiting for the check. The sunset view was awesome but would definitely think twice before eating on the patio again.

There was no A/C inside. Outside had little to no light. Waited 20 minutes before I had to flag down someone to take care of us. They messed up my gfs steak and never did anything about it. Steaks were OK. Not very tasty IMO. Overall experience, on the 1-5 scale, id rate it a solid 3.2 stars.

Very disappointed in our experience. I made reservations a week prior, nowhere was there the option to sit outside. When you visit SPI, you don’t want to sit indoors for dinner. I was highly disappointed. I asked the host if we could we seated outside and she said those were reserved for customers who marked outside reservations while creating a reservation. Next, we had waited all week to eat some delicious oysters, to our surprise.... Liam’s did not have oysters and their name is steakhouse and oyster bar... can you say HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED.... to top it off, the air conditioning was not working inside. My husband was dripping in sweat during our date night dinner. Won’t recommend or return to Liams.

Got to sit on the patio and watch sunset. It was super nice and food was great. Staff was great as well. My jeeps battery died as we were leaving and a couple of the staff members came to the rescue without hesitation! 10/10 would recommend.

First time to Liam's and it was such a treat. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. The chocolate bomb dessert was amazing to watch as it opened and wonderful to eat. Highly recommend and will definitely return next time I am in town.

Olivia was our server and did a wonderful job. Oysters were spot on as were the entrees. The baked potato’s were average at best otherwise our score would have been better. Desert was the ‘bomb’. The view of the bay is perfect for sunset. Enjoyed very much.

Really enjoyed the food however extremely upset at lack of social distancing— it got quite full and after each table next to us was sat, we waited in the foyer to get our check— ruined an otherwise great experience!

Outstanding! Did not expect 5 star dining on the island. Everything from the food, service to atmosphere was exceptional. Lobster bisque had huge pieces of meat, Steaks were done perfectly as ordered, stuffed flounder and salmon were so e of best I’ve eaten. Waitstaff was very knowledgeable and steered us in the right direction. We will return next time we are on the island.

The trainee server was nicer then our real waiter. The waiter spoke over us and interrupted me when I was trying to order. The food was subpar. Lobster bisque was runny ( not thick and creamy) and had one large lump of lobster in it I had to cut with a knife. Not to mention came luke warm... I prefer my soup hot. But that's just me.

My husbands crab legs were definitely previously frozen and tasted like cardboard box. I guess I excepted it to taste better for an extra $17.

Overall we were very disappointed in the food. We chose this place because Josephine's was so good and we wanted to have a nice dinner out. Not worth the money.

The sunset was nice, the sun and sky never disappoint.

Wonderful food and excellent service! Staff was attentive and respectful of social distancing, which was a pleasant surprise for South Padre’s hotels and restaurants ! All staff members were wearing masks. The only great and safe experience we had at the South Padre!
The location is charming, on the water with a view on beautiful sunset and option for outdoor seating.

Arriving the doors were open and it felt very humid walking in ... concerned that the A/C was not functioning, I was told A/C was fine. We did have a reservation and were attended promptly ... Service was outstanding - food was wonderful. All in all a most pleasant experience. P. S. I was looking forward to a Prime Rib dinner and was told it is only served on the weekend - that was my bad for not checking before we went ... Really, really love your Prime Rib -

We made our reservation a few days prior and were not given the courtesy of letting us know that 3 of their most popular plates were not available at the moment. The food was on the menu but we were told that they had ran out a day prior. We come from out of town, unfortunately we came just for that plate and left a bit bummed. The lobster bisque was pretty much a tomato soup with a hint of lobster. The waitress was very nice.
