Have you had too much to drink, or is this dock swaying? At Harrison’s Landing on the People’s Street T-Head, it’s likely the latter, but perhaps it’s both! Because here, guests can literally dine on the water on the floating back dock and sip at Tiki Bar.
Or, they may enjoy a scrumptious array of freshly-prepared, made-from-scratch meals inside the restaurant featuring an indoor tavern or on an outdoor patio, where authentic Hurricane cocktails are served up using the same recipe as the drinks sold at the Pat O’Brien’s restaurant in New Orleans.
Kyle Horstman, general manager there for four years, said the inspiration for the fresh seafood, certified Angus beef, vegetables and homemade sauces on the menu comes from the desire to offer dishes that come from local sources.
“We like to buy from local vendors, like Groomers Seafood and Corpus Christi Produce. We make everything from scratch in our own kitchens. Nothing is heat and serve,” he said.
Best selling dishes include the red snapper tacos, and customers also love the ½ pound certified Angus beef burgers, Horstman said.
Owners Bill and Cathy Harrison returned to the restaurant business in 2010 after previously owning The Lighthouse restaurant from 1985 to 2000, Lynn Cates, chief executive officer of the Harrison’s Landing enterprise said. Bill Harrison passed away in 2011.
“They picked the T-Head because Bill loved the marina,” said Cates, who has worked for the Harrison family for 25 years.
They offer one-hour sunset and lunchtime cruises on their boat, The Japonica. The boat may also be chartered and is available for birthday parties and company meetings. Sail boat cruises are booked by appointment and typically last about two hours. Cathy’s Boutique, which features clothing and unique items from local artists, is next door.
Eating, drinking, shopping and boating – yes, this establishment pretty much sums up the Coastal Bend!
