    Spectacular views, live music the night we were there, good service. One of the best restaurants in Corpus. Steaks were delicious, at the cost and caliber of the establishment wish they would serve fresh spinach instead of frozen for their side and au gratin potatoes really needed salt.

    The service was as poor. For a fine restaurant dirty dishes were left on our table throughout the dinner. Steak wasn’t seasoned well and the waitress was lousy. Spent a total of 250.00 for a meal and service that you’d get at Taco Bell.

    Beautiful view of you’re sitting by the front. But drab hotel like interior. Food was just not good. Salmon was so salty. Fondue was runny and had weird sweet taste. Runny creamed spinach, mashed potatoes had no flavor. My Buffalo ribeye was ok but not amazing for $57 had a weird garlic crusty topping. Service was wonderful.

    We had the best experience on our anniversary dinner date. The people running Republic of Texas Bar & Grill were very gracious and pleasant and make our occasion unique! We had Ludwig as our waiter and his performance was of the utmost! We had Axis venison tenderloins! Perfect! And we had Buffalo rib eye! Both were a delight! We had a perfect view of the city and bay and as the day faded to night the city lights made the view even more inspiring!

    For the price, you get a lot of food. The quality of the food is lacking, so if you are looking for lots of mid tier food this is the place to go. The view is fantastic, and ultimately that is why we chose to continue dining here.

    Everything was perfect except some lady brought her barking dog in. Could have been a service dog, dont know for sure. Either way, super annoying when you're trying to enjoy a romantic meal and listen to the live entertainment (singer with a beautiful voice). Other than that, everything from the front podium staff to the service, delicious food and outstanding atmosphere/view.

    We had an amazing time for my girlfriends birthday dinner here. We had Nick as our waiter and he did such an amazing job. I asked for an ocean view and they got us the best seat in the house. Food was AMAZING, service was EVEN BETTER! They really made us feel welcomed and took great care of us. Don’t sleep on going to this restaurant, go and ask for Nick!

    The place didn’t seem that crowded but the staff was completely overwhelmed. We had reservations for 8pm but still weren’t seated until 8:15 even with us arriving 10 minutes early for our reservation. Since we looked at the menu ahead of time and ordered a bottle of wine to be at the table when we made our reservation it didn’t take long to get our order in by 8:25pm. Our food arrived at 9:35pm. The food was ok. Nothing special. Had fully planned on dessert but with the lackluster quality of the main course and the time it took to get it, we decided it was best to just call it a night.

    Although we were seated late, everything else made up for it! I use a cane and we were seated on the lower level next to the windows. So I didn't have to use all the stairs, they took us down the service elevator. Both the lady who seated us and the waiter were wonderful. Will definitely be back.

Everything from the seating, the VIEW of the Bay, the service done by the wait staff, the delicious food that was served, and the drinks definitely complimented the overall experience. We will definitely return. Thank you to the staff.

    The food was exceptional, this is a dinner we only do once a year, but certainly well worth it. The only thing that bothered me was the service. The server was dry, not very welcoming just enough to get the job done. It took a good while before he arrived to offer us drinks. My persecution of service might be skewed, when I compare the quality of service at a restaurant that cost 1/3 of the total check but provide world class service. All in all we spent 2 hours in the restaurant and I feel that was excessive in some parts.

    We celebrated Mother’s Day dinner. We were staying at the hotel so it was convenient. The lobster bisque and bread were very good. However, both mine and my husband’s entree were very salty. The wait person and hotel were very good about not charging us for our entrees. Maybe just a bad day in the kitchen!

    Our first visit to the Republic of Texas Bar & Grill was to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is beautiful, the view of the bay is gorgeous, the food was excellent, and the service was very good. The wait time was appropriate when waiting to be seated and for our meal to arrive. My husband ordered the 14oz. Cast-Iron Seared Buffalo Ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes and I ordered the Shrimp Republic. We were both extremely pleased with our meals. We celebrated with a Creme Brulee for dessert! While this is a more expensive eating option for the area, we were very pleased with the experience and would return again.
