    We arrived an hour early for our reservation in hoping that we could be seated and have an early dinner. We were told I could not happen, even though there was more than two dozen open tables. On top of that, the food was fair at best with the addition to they ran out of bread and certain desserts by 6:30 PM. I have never been to a restaurant with a run out of the basic items that early in the evening. That tells me they’re under poor management.

    Waiter was nice but took a while to show up. They were out of 2 of the 6 sides on the menu: asparagus and broccolini. However, some of our plates did come with asparagus. (Maybe they were saving them for those plates? Anyways, still bad.) Waiter missed part of our order and realized it after we asked for it twice. She was honest about telling us afterwards she had forgotten to put it in… although she did tell us when asked, that the order was coming out briefly. We ordered coffee with our dessert and were told the coffee machine was broken so they couldn’t give us any. Drinks were painfully slow. For what it costs, I don’t think it’s worth it. Wouldn’t really recommend.

    Our waitress was very nice and professional, but our food was not served until more than a hour after we had been seated. Compared to other restaurants of this class, the fare was pricey. Overall, poor value for money.

    This was my second trip to Republic of Texas and it may have been my last visit. You can not beat the Views from the Restaurant! Our Waiter was more interested having a 15 minute conversation with another table and it took over 50 minutes to get our food. This was on top of the Restaurant being out of several menu items. The waiter finally came back around and asked if we wanted more bread. After waiting 50 minutes for our food we did want more bread only to find out when our food came out, the Restaurant was out of Bread now!!! We had to ask the Bus Boy for more drinks since the waiter camped out at another table and would not even look our way!!

    Wasn't the experience we expected from the Republic of Texas, we have always had a great time here. This time was different the service we slower the noise level was very loud and the food served what not what was listed on the menu. We had two broken and liquidity hollandaise sauce on separate orders done throughout the day. The sauce is not hard to make and has been done right every time I have been here before. The mushrooms we order were supposed to be sauteed and it was merely Baby Bell with brown gravy. Not what I would have expected from a place of this esteem. Then we ordered the Creme brulee and it was out of stock which is the 4th time this has happened. So overall not bad but definitely not as good as before. And for the price you pay to eat here it should always be good.

    Upon arrival, we were seated at our appropriate reservation time. However, once seated we were not helped my any server for 20 minutes. Once a kind lady asked us if we were okay, she tried to find our waiter who didn’t know he was catering to our table. He took our orders & did not come back to ask us if we were okay or if we needed refills. We did not see him until our food came to our table about 30 or so minutes later. The food was great & we had a nice time, but next time for our visit we hope that our service is better.

    Not The Republic I’ve come to expect over the years. The service was slow, and although my steak was tender and tasty, it could have certainly been warmer, and my potato barely melted the butter.

    Food was not what I expected. Kitchen service took about an hour. My steak was not cooked right. Limited selection. Never was offered anything to drink besides water. Never was shown wine list. Had to ask for a glass a wine for my wife. Then bill was over three hundred dollars. Have had better meals at golden corral.

    They did seat us early. Very attentive and well staffed. Food was marginal. My wife's salmon was too fishy, likely wasn't fresh, and my New York Strip that I ordered Medium rare came to the table medium, and was tough. Not a good texture for the money, being a $60 dollar steak. Beautiful view, very nice décor. Well stocked bar with knowledgeable bartenders.

    One of the nicest restaurants in corpus. Beautiful view, great food. They have a “vegetarian special” but every time we have been there it seems to just be mushroom ravioli, would be nice to see them mix it up. Some items have small portions for the price, others are a good value. I ordered a steak and it was cooked exactly how I asked and was very good. Overall, while there are definitely things that could be improved, it’s still one of my favorite places to go in corpus and I will continue to go.

    You are definitely paying for the view. The service was decent, not anything memorable about it for sure. The food was good, not anything that was amazing. I ordered the filet mignon, then my husband and I split the macaroni and cheese and a Cesar salad. The macaroni and cheese looked like it had been sitting under the heat lamp for a few minutes too long. The steak was tasty. I think the most impressive presentation and tasting was the crème brûlée. It pretty awesome and tasted even better. I was disappointed because when I made reservations here I specifically said we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. There was no mention whatsoever at dinner time by the wait staff of my husband’s birthday. Why ask if we are celebrating anything if you are not going to do anything special. I don’t think we will return on our next visit for Corpus Christi. For what we paid I am certain we find a place in Corpus Christin that covers all of this and more.

    We go to The Republic of Texas a couple of times a year-on our anniversary & other special occasions. This occasion was our oldest daughter’s 21st birthday. It was her first time thereI figured a Tuesday night NOT during the holidays would be easy! We waited almost TWO HOURS for our food. Our reservation was at 7:30. We ordered approximately 8-8:15. Our food arrived at almost 10 pm! One of my friends had her food sent back- she can’t eat that late at night. My husband even walked around the restaurant looking for our waitress to find out what was taking so long. I thought a manager or hostess or SOMEONE might come talk to us to apologize. I figured we’d get an appetizer while waiting or get our first round of drinks comped. NO. NOTHING. The food was good, as always & our waitress did the best she could. Maybe they were short staffed. It was pretty crowded at the bar. Our drinks were VERY GOOD. But we have NEVER waited this long at a restaurant before. And it was FREEZING in there! I was pretty disappointed no one spoke to us. For the amount of money we spent that night I expected more. Will think twice before going back. 😞

    Service was lacking. Didn’t get food or drinks timely. Took over an hour for a drink and an hour and 15 mins for food. Once food came out, there was a literal ball of hair in the side dish. Will not be returning.

    If the food was prepared properly, it would have been a great experience. The manager states she will make it right and waiting on a gift card in the mail. That is the only reason why we will give it a second chance. Staff was very nice but the kitchen needs to step it up ton considering the prices.

    My family and I have been to this restaurant many times. The restaurant has always lived up to its reputation, until this past Friday. The service from our primary waiter was the absolute worse. To everyone if you happen to have bas service please speak up, I wish I had. Other than this, the food is excellent.

    Our experience at the Republic of Texas was awesome . We were greeted by a very friendly hostess. We had some drinks at the bar before dining and our hostess was very helpful and the drinks were great. When we were seated our waiter came right away and introduced himself. The service was great and the food was delicious. Will definitely come back again.
