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.

    Liam’s steakhouse did not have our reservation from Open Table in their system, even though we got confirmation through Open Table. They were able to accommodate us for a table anyway. Can Open Table coordinate with this restaurant for future reservations?

    Ordered the fillet mignon at $69.00 and added lobster tail at an additional $35.00. Lobster was good but the fillet was over cooked. Ordered medium but it came well done. Didn’t want to hold up my wife’s dinner so just went with it. Manager offered a free desert as compensation. Not quite the same as a perfect $100 meal from one of the highest rated restaurants on the island which is why we came here in the first place.

    Overall, a good experience. However, I was disappointed in having to ask the waiter to clean my table after our appetizers. He had the tool to do so, I had to ask home to use it. Good experience but typical American lazy waiters and waitresses.

    Everything was fine except I had called ahead to say I had won a gift certificate to ‘s Family Restauranrs and Liam’s was among them. Could I use it! Oh, yes, said the employee who answered the phone. Well, they didn’t want to let me use it. The manager said it was for Al’s lesser restaurants. I told him I had called to verify. He finally let us use it, but rather embarrassing. Food was good, but only Lukewarm. We’ve been there many times and expect more. We’ll return and give it another try.

    Although the interior is dark and a little dated, the service and dinner were excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth. Shrimps were large, cooked perfectly. What is it about the bread…it’s like crack…warm pillow- like and the flavour! Oh my Vegetables perfectly cooked. We shared the chocolate “igloo”…breaks open with the pouring of hot chocolate by the waiter. Appropriately priced for what we had! Would definitely return and recommend!

    We were disappointed with the Flounder Vera Cruz--no seasoning . Had a nice helping of broccoli, but here again--so seasoning. The chocolate cake and wine was very good. Our waiter was very gracious and helpful. When we are on South Padre island we always look forward to dinner at Liams and we will be back--just not ordering the Vera Cruz.

    Just a great Valentine’s Day experience.  Easy to book on OpenTable, and then greeted by the maitre’d D, who gave us a Bayside table.  The most significant compliments belong to Allen, our polite, and well informed waiter, who brought us excellent it dishes prepared by the kitchen.  Sadly, we did not have room for the chocolate surprise dessert.

    Steak was mediocre. Said it was prime but highly doubt it. Asparagus and potato were disappointing as well. Service was good but that was about it. Don’t mind paying a high price for an expensive meal but this was way over priced for the quality of food. Quite disappointing.

    The view at sunset over the bay was great from a table by the window. The food though was just fair, not great, as per the expectations from a couple of different internet commentary sources showing this to be the top/best restaurant on the island. The oysters rockefeller were obviously the chef's take on the traditional recipe but were not as good as I have eaten in any of 50+ other restaurants. Completely overwhelmed by the mozzarela and parmesan cheese. The steamed vegetables were completely devoid of any seasoning. The red snapper entree was cooked well but also devoid of any seasoning or flavor. The mashed potatoes were OK and came with several add-in toppings on the side (like a baked potato would come with). Without the view, probably would not go back.

    The meal was great. Had issues getting an issue with the gift certificate , but that was resolved. Meal was great. We come to Liam’s every year when down here in South Padre Island. Only question/issue I might have had was when making the reservation it asked if it was a special occasion. I put down birthday , but nothing was mentioned about a birthday while we were there. Thought maybe they would acknowledge it. But not a big deal. Everything about Liam’s is always good.

Highly recommend this place for date night, special occasion, cocktails, or anytime you need to be surrounded by comfort and class. Well done, staff at Liam’s.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food was great but way too much/be prepared to take home leftovers. Great service. The only downside was a loud, drunk woman at the table behind us. We thought she was finally leaving but she went to the bar and was totally obnoxious. I felt bad for the guy who was with her.
