Republic of Texas Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
Took my wife for our twentieth anniversary and my two teenage girls. The amotospher was so nice and relaxing, great not having all the chatter you experience at most restaurant's. The food was excellent , our steaks , the roasted chicken and dessert was prepared just right. And the service from the hostess and our waiter were top notch.
One of the finest dining experiences in Corpus Christi. Gorgeous view of the bay accompanied by an excellent menu of steak, seafood, and game, along with a superior wine selection (a bit pricey though) and outstanding service. Recommend for a special romantic
This restaurant is a great place to go for any occasion! We were celebrating my promotion at work on this particular outing. We go there for our anniversaries as well. We have been there several times and have never had a a bad meal or bad service EVER. I highly recommend this place. Our waiter was very attentive and the bartender was great too.
Customer Services was wonderful - prices were very high - but I expected that for a steakhouse, it was freezing - very uncomfortable - view was the main reason I went - windows were so foggy due to the weather -- so no view - which was no ones fault - just disappointing! Food was good - but not exceptional. Manager Joe was very nice and helped return our left behind cell phone, thank you Joe!
My wife and I go to the Republic of Texas a couple times a year. The view is great! The service is OK. On 02/13/17, we were sat right by the window with a great view however we were also by the kitchen doors. The doors were left open most of the time so it was very bright and very loud. The food was good but not great. There are better places to get steak in Corpus however I do not think you can beat the view.
Our steaks we chewy and over cooked, something you wouldn't expect for a 50$ steak! Our waiter was horrible and very unproffesional. He came to check on us a total of 2 times throughout our entire meal. Or meals took over 45 minutes to come out and tasted horrible. We have no plans on returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone!
The food and experience were very good. We were celebrating our daughter's 19th birthday but no one asked if we were there for a special occasion. We were a party of 5. When I went to pay the bill I noticed the gratuity of 18% had already been added (menu noted parties of 6 more would include gratuity). It was a little insulting to have the gratuity included. Implies I come across as someone who doesn't tip. I waited tables through college and am actually a very good tipper (even for mediocre service) so the waiter cheated himself.
We have been going here for ten years. This was my wife's birthday & her daughter flew in to surprise her, meeting us at the restaurant unannounced. The waiter was great, the manager went out of his way to actually film our daughter meeting her mother by surprise on her phone. Very nice atmosphere with high caliber employees. The piano bar and accompanying musician truly make it a place to want to return to over the years.
Our server was a friendly gentleman, but it took an hour and a half to get our food, during which time he disappeared completely. The fish dishes were over done and over salted. When our dessert menus were delivered, the waiter immediately came over and literally collected all the dessert menus from our hands, saying "no, I'm taking care of this!" We all assumed he was trying to make up for the slow service. Then, he brought ONE VERY TINY cup of mousse for all four of us to share. What?? We all got a good laugh out of that, but it was pretty pathetic. The view is certainly great, but food and service were sub-par. We won't be back.
Since we were staying at the Omni, and after some restaurant research, we decided to eat here as we were on a getaway for my husband’s birthday. What a fantastic surprise. Even after reading the reviews, we were not prepared for the atmosphere of this restaurant! The dining area is surrounded by 2 story windows on the 19-20th floors. The view is magnificent. There is even a viewing balcony to get a better look at the bay and boats.
The service & steak were what we had expected in a FINE dining restaurant. Fantastic! Martinis were awesome and the wine list was extensive. Our server Wes was friendly and helpful when asked about some area details. Definitely 5*!
We went to the Republic of Texas on the recommendation of several locals. While the view was marvelous, the service was accommodating, the food simply disappointed. We started off with a bland fondue that was served with crostinis that were just on this side of stale, two of us ordered ribeyes that were tough and chewy. The asparagus was large, sinewy and bland while the Au gratin potatoes were bland as well.
All in al it was a very disappointing meal worthy of a Sirloin Stockade rather than an upmarket hotspot.
Our waiter (Tommy) was excellent in his service, his food and restaurant knowledge and his dinner sense of humor. A rare combination. Food was absolutely delicious and prepared to a T. Prices were a bit high, but to be expected for the environment and restaurant quality/reputation. All in all we will go back again and again.
Cruz, our server was excellent! We had the Chateaubriand and it did not disappoint. Cooked to perfection We finished with a Creme Brûlée that was done perfectly. They have an extensive wine list with something for everyone. The view is spectacular. Make a reservation it's a busy place
The dining room is beautiful. Large glass windows look out onto the bay, so for a fantastic view, go during sunlight hours.
Complimentary valet parking is very helpful.
A supposed four star steak house in Texas should have great steaks, and this place does not. I have had great steaks in Chicago (many), Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Tortola (BVI)!, and even Wilmington, Delaware, but not here.
Thankfully, the wine list is good, and the carrot cake, which can feed two to three, was outstanding.
Lastly, who charges $10 for a loaded baked potato, on top of $40 bucks for a tough steak?
We took my mother to celebrate her 78th birthday. This was my first visit to the restaurant, we've been to the hotel several times for weddings. The view of Corpus Christi bay was amazing! Food, service, cocktails, wine and after dinner coffee were spot on. Definitely the absolute best place I've been in Corpus Christi and the surrounding area.
The menu for New Years was horrible and the fact that I had to pay a 20% tip ($35.80) on sub par service for two people was terrible. I had reserved and asked for a ocean view , well I ocean view with a huge column in front of the view, nice job guys.
A few years back, this use to be a nice place but gets worst with the years so instead of spending $300 here, I will go elsewhere when I visit Corpus again.
