Looking for recommendations for casual seafood restaurants in Port Aransas. 12 & 10 year old in tow, but they'll eat seafood.

We went to shells a few years ago, maybe around 2014ish, came in wearing shorts and flip flops and we were very under dressed. Got a lot of stares and felt awkward, so we left. Maybe it is different now.

Not coming straight off the beach or anything, just looking to avoid that. We went to Virginia's, it was fine.

Stingrays is a good option and they have something for everyone. Killer wings.

La Playa is great, but small - come early and bring cash. And if you like tequila then that's your place, they have 100 to choose from or something ridiculous.

Did MacDaddy's today. Fried shrimp and Parmesan Fish were good, BBQ nachos were good, even though they used kettle cooked type chips.

Was there last week. . Don't wait too late. At 8 pm Fins had doors locked. Blue Water Cowboy was closed. Hour plus wait at Virginia's. Last stop was Whataburger and they had doors locked.

If you hit them around 3 or so you should be fine.

We did Whataburger Saturday night. Just a heads up for anyone, they don't take orders through the app and the wait is long, even by Whataburger standards. It was 45 mins or so, from the time we pulled in to the parking lot and joined the line to the time we got our food. Both the food and drinks were incorrect.

Tried Lelo's, the Jack and Coke burger was really good. Would go back.

The kid at the window apologized telling us there was only 4 people working the store so they couldn't allow indoor dining.

It has been tough to find workers in Port A. Even before all of the COVID and stimulus stuff. They talked about adding low income housing apartments at one point to help keep workers on the island but I think a lot of people complained.

I hope to retire down there some day. The only place on the island that I have stayed away from with kids it the Venetian Hot Plate.

Every place else has been welcoming. We are headed down there for a fun fishing trip with my dad and kids in a few weeks. Hoping to be able to catch enough to bring it in to a restaurant and have them cook it for us like we used to do when I was a kid.
