A Visit to Coaches Island Grill Port Aransas, Texas

Coaches Island Grill, Port Aransas: Culinary Delights and Hidden Gems in a Coastal Haven – From Legendary Pancakes to Unique Seafood Twists!

I would never have discovered Coaches Island Grill if I wasn’t wandering aimlessly through an old residential area in the stereotypically coastal town of Port Aransas, Texas. As soon as I stepped foot inside of Coaches, I was greeted by the inviting, and hoarder-like atmosphere of what would become one of my most memorable dining experiences.

            The menu at Coaches is an arsenal of classic diner food to innovative signature dishes, whether you’re craving a burger, fresh seafood, or a hearty salad, it doesn’t matter, because it’s likely not only available at Coaches, but it might also be the best you’ve ever had. One of the standout features of Coaches Island Grill is their signature dishes. The “Island Burger,” featuring a perfectly spiced beef patty topped with caramelized onions, crispy bacon, and melted cheddar cheese. And for seafood lovers, the “Catch of the Day,” never disappoints, showcasing the freshest local catch prepared with a unique twist. And personally, I’m partial to the “Coaches Famous Pancake Platter.” Finishing off my last bite, and although I was sitting alone, I genuinely said, and aloud to nobody. “These were the best f%&king pancakes I’ve ever had!”

Whether you’re a Port A local, or you’re a visitor exploring the beauty of the Texas coastal island, a stop at Coaches Island Grill is an experience that you can’t miss. Walking through the front doors your first thought will be to the unique décor: a genuine Michael Myers’ mask from one of the many Halloween movies is displayed, behind glass and resting on a shelf behind the counter, the mounting sports memorabilia, and even a placard posted on the rear wall that memorializes the flood depths and devastation of Hurricane Harvey in 2017. After you’ve finished your Pancake Platter, the floor to ceiling décor will exist in your memory only as an afterthought. I’m grateful that Coaches, and the island of Port Aransas, Texas, are still there for the memories.
