This was what you would expect for an open air beachfront bar and grill. Nice atmosphere. Very friendly service. Tasty fried oyster basket and mixed seafood basket. Nothing fancy, but my rating is based on them doing what they are designed to do, very well.

My husband and visited SPI for a long weekend. We stayed in a beach condo about a mile down the beach from Wanna Wanna. Each afternoon we'd stroll down the beach to Wanna Wanna to hang out for a few drinks.

Saturday and Sunday both had live music. The drinks are good, and not too expensive for a tourist spot. One of the few bars that overlooks the beach.

Grab a drink and relax at the beach bar overlooking the water, or bring your drink down to sand.

The location and setting are about all Wanna-Wanna has going for it. The service is poor to non existent and the fried seafood is average at best. The fried shrimp tasted like it was right out of the frozen food section of the grocery, but the fries were very good.

There are much better places to eat on the beach.

This has been our go to place each day we stayed in South Padre Island. The bar is right on the beach, with a fantastic view (go lay at the beach for a few hours, then join the crowd at the bar). I don’t think you can bring the drinks to the beach. The bartender (Robert in our case) was awesome.

During the weekend it can get busy, but during the weekdays you can find a seat at the bar or the at the tables.

It was windy while we were there, so being a light jacket just Incase, however it shouldn’t ruin the mood.

The menu is not extensive, but we had the fries and they were pretty good.

We did not stay in the hotel, so cannot comment on the rooms.

If you come to South Padre Island (and I recommend you do), stop by Wanna Wanna Bar & Grill!!!
