Republic of Texas Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
The Republic of Texas is a great place to hold business meetings. We have at least one meeting there a month. I enjoy relaxing, having a nice glass of wine or a cocktail and looking out to the bay to watch the sunset. There is a beautiful water view of downtown Corpus Christi. The steaks are great as well as the rest of the menu and being they serve family style side dishes makes the dinner fun to share with the table. There are many talented servers at the Republic but...
" Beautiful Chris " takes the cake. She is very attentive, beautiful smile and so pleasant to talk to. We look forward to going back soon.
I would like to say thank for the wonderful experience and great tasting food! I wanted to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and treat her to a romantic dinner. I can tell you that we accomplished both with overwhelming success. My only critique for the night was the bar tender (heavy set Hispanic male)... We arrived a few mins early and decided to have drinks at the bar. We sat down and could not decided what we wanted to drink, so we asked the bar tender. He was completely unhelpful and response with that's an open ended question and depends on your palate and walks off. I thought that was very rude and unprofessional. I would have expected for him to mention maybe some signature drinks, popular drinks requested or what do we normally drink. I ordered your signature margaritas and it was not very good. It truly tasted like something from a lower class restaurant... Our waiter completely made up for the bar tenders lack of customer service, and gave us food and drink recommendation for the remainder of the night. One last thing is the Windows were pretty dirty. We had excellent seats face the harbour bridge but windows needed desperate attention. Hope this helps to improve on a great restaurant.
The front desk(hosts) were not welcoming but rather rude and fake. Servers were more helpful and polite. The main problem was that they are advertising "daily" featured vegetarian meal but never change it in the whole week! Being a vegetarian, I must say the meal was delicious, but not many vegetables were used and couldn't really consider it a healthy meal. The second dining experience was terrible, that's when we learned the daily change is false advertisement and when we asked for extra or side of vegetables to go with our meal they charged us for it as the second entree $25 and didn't include the vegetarian sussage in the original entree.We gave them a chance twice during our week in town, but would never go back again! Couldn't even believe they charged us $25 for the second plate which is still awfully sitting in a to go box...
Even though the food was good, service was genuine, and the chef was thoughtful for our anniversary...the cost was over priced. I have had all the same at another restaurant but half the cost. For two people it was over $171.00. Being special occasion and our only option while staying at the hotel, we stayed.
Great selection of food. Steaks were cook perfectly. I realize this is kind of a high end retaurant. However, the prices were a bit overboard for the quality and quantity. I have been to many restaurants with just as good of quality and wasn't as pricey. This will not keep me from coming back by no means.
Great view and service. The food is good; however, expensive for what you get. The food and wine is somewhat overpriced. Ex. 2 Sea Scallops for $22.
Our Kids enjoyed going out on the balcony and taking photos.
The service and ombiance is nice. Wow! The fresh bread was really good.
Our steaks were cooked more that "medium" which we requested.
Service was good. Food was not.
Nilgai was raw and I wasn't asked how I wanted it cooked. Sauce was not good.
Mashed potatoes were cold.
Cream corn was not good.
Pepper steak was very good
Bread was very good.
Value was horrible. Nikos just as nice, good food and a quarter of the price. $200 for crappy food is not a good value.
Haven't been to the restaurant in a while, but always liked the food. The ribeye steak I choose was tough for a prime steak and way, way too salty, and I like salt on my food. My wife's salmon was also overly salty. The potato dish we ordered was way undercooked and crunchy. The desserts were good as usual. Probably will not go back.
Tommy was our ambassador of food and service which I might add, service, was impeccable! The entire dining experience exceeded our expectations to the point, my wife is actively seeking property to purchase in Corpus Christi in order to frequent the Republic of TEXAS Bar and Grill. Attending this restaurant will certainly spoil you!!
The view is of course spectacular. Sometimes when a restaurant has a great view the food can be sub-par but not here. Beautiful meal with perfect service. We order the Chateaubriand for two and it was absolutely perfectly prepared. We paired it with a nice wine and made a perfect anniversary celebration.
Food good, service was terrible!!
Our res was for 630 and the place was empty.
Our server would leave and not come back for very long periods of time. Slow bring a bottle of wine we ordered, very slow to refil ice tea glasses, slow to do anything.
Water glasses ran out of water, he was nowhere to be found to refil.
He was just not a good waiter, period!!!
This probably is a 4 star restaurant in Corpus Christi but in any other big city if would barely make 2 stars. The wait staff was unshaven and not qualified to articulate about the menu. The service was poor even though the restaurant was empty. The NY strip was tough but I expected that when I saw it was only $36. I went to the bar after dinner and the bartender in his skinny jeans was more worried about flirting with the cocktail waitress than serving the customers. They let customers in with shorts and flip flops so you can't seriously consider the place to be 4 stars. No attention by management as I looked over and saw a couple sucking face in a corner table. Yeah, very Cosmopolitan. Save your money and go somewhere else.
Absolutely fabulous!! We were on vacation and looking for a special place to enjoy a night out. Republic of Texas did not disappoint! Chef brought his A game that night and under promised and over delivered! While the menu is pricey (we spent $180 for3 courses for 2 people), it was worth it. Best ribeye steak I have ever had. My friend has a serious onion allergy and our waiter was extremely attentive to her needs, making her evening very special. Thank you for a pampering dining experience! 5 stars!!
I wasn't surprised by the level of service or the great tasting food. I've heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Everything from the appetizers of shrimp cocktail and clam chowder to my steak and my wife's grilled grouper was amazing and we will definitely be coming back.
