Lelo's Island Bar, a Tiki Twist on the Causal Neighborhood Bar

Lelo's Island Bar is a neighborhood bar and grill with a tiki twist. Regulars come to enjoy specialty burgers and fries in a casual, beachy dining room. Outdoors, patrons relax in hammocks, sipping elaborate cocktails in its dog-friendly beer garden, or play outdoor games with friends.

Google reviewer Keng calls Lelo’s a local gem. “I ordered the mushroom swiss burger, and it was surprisingly delicious. The grilled burger meat was crispy on the edge and juicy inside . . . can't get any better than that. The chicken strips were also cooked to perfection, crispy yet tender and juicy. Even the fries were great! We didn't mind the long wait due to the holiday crowd, and those games (shuffleboard, arcade) kept my family entertained while waiting. The owners were very friendly as well. This restaurant is a local gem. We will go back again.”

Dustin Rosales recommends Lelo's Island, and plans on becoming a regular. “The food was fantastic. I had an onion burger, my wife had the jack and coke burger and we had buffalo poppers for an app,” he shares. “The margaritas were great as well. Not overly sweet. If I had to guess, I would say they don’t use sweet and sour and use fresh lime juice. This will be in regular rotation every time I visit the island.

Lelo's Island Bar is located at 212 Beach St, in Port Aransas. It is open Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. For more information visit the restaurant’s website or call (515) 416-1792.

Since opening earlier this year, Lelo’s has become a popular destination for neighbors and visitors to the island.
