Second visit, both times my steak was way over-cooked. This time I didn't send it back because I was so hungry. We sat for 15 min's at our table before we were even acknowledged. I spent $250.00 on a meal that wasn't worth $50.

The food was good, esp the steak; the fish was undercooked with a mushy center (salmon). Our servers were very polite and attentive. When we said we had limited time, they did their best to get our meal out promptly (maybe why the fish was undercooked?) The view was wonderful.

Very good restaurant. My New York strip was cooked very well and was flavorful. Wife’s filet was just a tad over cooked. This is a good restaurant to visit for a really special occasion, but for most occasions, saltgrass or roadhouse are almost as good.

I have dined at this restaurant for special occasions several times over a number of years. My opinion of the food, and service is remarkably declined since my last visit.
My steak was not near the quality stated in the menu for the price. Husband’s lamb was under seasoned and under cooked. The baked oysters we ordered were just warmed. Server was minimally efficient and didn’t strive to make a special event memorable.

First time to dine in this restaurant, but will not be the last. I took a special person to what I hoped would be an exceptional evening and it was. The ambiance/atmosphere was superb. The food was excellent and our wait person was the best. Cannot compliment him enough. My hopes were more than met.

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!!
