For decades, North Padre Island has been a beloved Texas Coast getaway. Travelers from near and far come for the sandy beaches, sunny skies, and relaxed island vibe. Now, with the new Waves Resort, travelers can add “outstanding epicurean experience” to the already long list of North Padre’s alluring qualities. Once you cross over the bridge from Corpus Christi to the Island, look for the iconic white and blue Waves Resort Tower and you’re there! Formerly Schlitterbahn River Resort, Waves has been completely reimagined by new ownership with $10 million worth of upgrades, attractions and culinary adventures.
Calling all foodies: Eats Epicurea
Eats Epicurea is the Island’s newest culinary experience with inventive (and very tasty) coastal cuisine. Think artfully-crafted dishes with distinctive Texas flair: gourmet tacos and house made tortillas, Pat LaFrieda short-rib burgers or juicy, cooked-to-perfection steaks. And since no culinary experience is complete without just the right wine pairing, Eats Epicurea has more than 100 wines – the most extensive list on North Padre. Even the most discerning of wine connoisseurs will be pleased with this selection. With the robust bar, eats also caters to crafted-cocktail fans and microbrew lovers – something for everyone!
Serving up More than Cuisine
Just when you thought the gourmet cuisine and adult beverage selection couldn’t get any better, Eats Epicurea outdoes itself on the weekends. Live music accompanies the delightful dishes every Friday and Saturday night. Winner of The Bend Brunch on the Bay 2019, the Sunday Jazz Brunch is not to be missed! (We dare you to try to find a better Bloody Mary or Mimosa on the island.)
