Pier 19 is an iconic, fun, and quirky restaurant/bar at the far south end of Padre Island.

Although we didn’t dine at Pier 19 when we last visited SPI, we enjoyed a walkabout of the pier area and the hostess obligingly took us on a walk-through of the inside of the waterfront restaurant.

The restaurant enjoys excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, so I’m sure we’ll try it out next time we visit.

Osprey Cruises offers dolphin watch and fishing cruises that depart regularly from the pier.

Pier 19 offers great waterfront views of the Laguna Madre Bay.

And what can beat a little fun kitsch as you arrive at the pier?

It took me a few minutes to “get it”

This next photo cracked me up. I was so busy giving hubs instructions on how to operate my phone camera, I didn’t take time to figure out which way I should have been facing!
