This was a very good place to watch the sunset and have some good crab and shrimp. The outside area had plenty of heaters so you can sit outside and watch all of the boats and the sun sink into the sea. The view across the marina, a beautiful sunset and the best of company is the key to a wonderful time here. The big surprise, to see buckets of food dumped on the table for us to sort through and serve on our plates. Yes, they did give us plates. I'm not sure what other items are offered here, but I was very satisfied with the buckets of crab, shrimp, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn on the cob dumped before me, and the great choice of wine Jenn supplied. The meal couldn't have been better in any way.

From Business: El Cortez Restaurant has a new look and feel with old traditions. You are family when you come to El Cortez Mexican Restaurant. All the food is made fresh daily and…
I'm a very picky eater, but I hear their food is great lol. But I go every Monday Night during football season, because for a whole 15 dollars, you get a T-Shirt, your own beer mug, and they serve hot dogs, sausages and popcorn for free (but we gladly tip the waitresses) also beers are 2 dollars for domestic, and 3 or 3.50 for imports. every monday night. It's alot of older people, 35 and up. But my friends and I (in our 20's) have a blast, and can easily talk smack between strangers and it's just all in good fun. Definitely a resturant worth checking out, wether you want a nice dinner, or to just hangout and snack while you watch a football game :)
saw this place a few times, so today I was in the neighborhood what the heck I had to try it..lol, the Cajun shrimp was good I can honestly say the mild sauce was WAY better than boiling crab, I tried the sweet potato fries that was good to, its not that big inside tho, the owner was very friendly. I will definitely go back
