Paradise Key Dockside Bar & Grill is seeking a professional Chef/kitchen manager to take the helm of our newly rebuilt and remodeled kitchen.   We are a four-year-old, high-volume, high-quality seafood and steak restaurant and bar, set in perhaps the most beautiful venue on the Coastal Bend.   We sit right on the water in scenic Rockport, directly across from the Conservation District, and enjoy panoramic views of Aransas Bay and its abundant wildlife.  Though still small by most standards, Rockport is growing fast and is a great place to live.   Whether you enjoy fishing, sailing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, scuba-diving, surfing or just hanging out on the beach, you will love living in Rockport.
