                                      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.

                                      Service, steaks and drinks were excellent. Five years ago the place had poor service and average food. They are back on top again! Pricy - but first class all the way!

                                      My husband, 12 year old son, and myself were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary last night and everything about the experience at Republic of Texas was AMAZING!! 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!

                                      Excellent food. Waited for awhile past time of reservation, but food worth the wait. Though known for its steaks, the seafood was outstanding. Intend to go back when I return to Corpus Christi. View also outstanding. Excellent choice of wines.

                                      We have always enjoyed the Republic of Texas for our special occasion dinners.. It's a stunning restaurant.

                                      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.

                                      Had dinner here with friends recently, and found it has a great view of the bay front. There is an excellent variety of well-prepared meal selections along with a nice variety of drinks to choose from. Super service and great quality all around. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Corpus Christi and wanting that full dining experience where everything is just right!

                                      There celebrating our anniversary, food was subpar and highly priced for the quality of the meal. The live music was playing a weird combination of pop music with a blues theme and did not fit the vibe of the restaurant or the evening in general. Wait staff was very helpful and the drinks were delicious.

We felt like the only ones in the room( but we were not). That's how attentive and friendly he was! Mason, the young man who kept our water glasses full was great. Never got thirsty! The food was awesome as we expected. My coctail ( grapefruit goddess) was a joy for the senses!

                                      Excellent dining experience! Food was cooked perfectly (after they brought me a medium rare, instead of medium well) and was delicious! We had carrot cake for desert and it was great as well! The view is awesome. As you would expect from fine dining, the prices are high but are well worth the price you pay! Very memorable night!

                                      Special THANK YOU to the GM for moving us once she realized we had been sat in the wrong seats. We were celebrating our Anniversary she made sure our night perfect. Couldn’t thank her enough.

                                      Best meal I’ve had in Corpus by far! Was on par with steaks I’ve eaten at “famous” steakhouses in bigger cities. Wife’s venison was delicious! Mac and cheese was our favorite. Staff was friendly and attentive. Will be back!

                                      Dinner with another couple. View toward the Lex and the bridge was very nice. The food was delicious, the presentation was very appealing and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the live music from the bar and didn’t feel rushed at all. A great place for the food and the ambiance.

                                      Probably the 7-8th time dining at the Republic, was the least favorite. Mix up in getting seated to our table started the evening. Server was more interested in another table with two gentleman. Paid little attention to detail. Food was good but not what would expect at high end dining. Rather disappointed, especially spending over $400 on our dinner.
