It can be anyone’s happy hour when you’ve got food options…and boy, do options make us hungry. Grub specials are popping up hourly around the Coastal Bend for any type of taste to accompany your happy hour appetite, and it looks like you’ve made it just in time.
The Post at Lamar Park
We’ll just put it this way: the perfect pair for a Post cocktail is a Post appetizer, and our friends in Lamar Park won’t let us down.
If you catch them before 7:00pm, you can indulge in their homemade pork skins, pretzels and beer cheese, or even their mesquite smoked salmon spread. Finding a drink pairing won’t be hard with their extensive shelf, so go ahead and grab any grub. Get your taste buds ready. 411 Doddridge St. #102
Katz 21 Grub and Social
The South Side’s ritziest social bar likes to switch it up on the daily. Discounts on their best salads, burgers, and even Wednesday’s famous dollar wings can be sought out before 7:00pm on their weekday schedule. Oh, and make sure to check out their new bar and bite section. 5702 Spohn Dr. South
495 chesapeake eats
Specializing in Maryland cuisine and craft cocktails, 495 Chesapeake Eats is a definite Rockport favorite. Their menu is stacked with mouth-watering entrees and tasty bites. Every Tuesday through Saturday from 5:00 to 6:30pm, you can order delicious appetizers such as fried brussels sprouts tossed in honey and goat cheese, Charm City jumbo shrimp, and baked oysters for less! 317 1008 E. North St.
Believe it or not, we come to Niko’s for more than just their choice cuts. Their happy hour appetizer deals fit the ideal mood for their happy hour cocktails. At the classic and casual steakhouse, the bang for your buck can make your whole evening. 5409 Saratoga Blvd.
SPID’s well-known seafood joint has brought the best of both worlds together: land and sea. Dine in from 3:00pm to 7:00pm and get a taste for fresh snow crab, oysters on the half shell, and you-peel-’em shrimp for half off the market price during their happy hour promotion. 14254 S Padre Island Dr.
