Corpus Christi – Black Diamond Oyster Bar has been a long time favorite of Corpus Christi because of their great seafood, especially oysters. I ended up getting a rib-eye steak and was actually surprised at how good it was. It wasn’t the biggest steak, but it tasted great, was cooked exactly how I asked for it to be cooked, had a hint of teriyaki flavor and it was not over seasoned.
I have been to Black Diamond many times in the past and the oysters-on-a-half-shell have always been our appetizer. Normally they are perfect, though last night they had tiny pieces of shell in them. Not sure if it was the shucking job or just how that batch was. Normally they never have that issue.
For one of the side items I got their rice and it was also great. My wife had fried flounder which was perfect. Not over breaded, not over seasoned and not over cooked. The kids meals came with some awesome homemade fries. Not sure if this is something new or if they have done it like this all along, hopefully that is how they always make the fries.
As usual the service was excellent. Ask for Rebecca, she is great.
