A Glistening Debut: Why Diners Rave About 1229 Shine

With a light format and refreshing menu, Market Commons newest eatery is making a splash.


1229 Shine, coastally-inspired and beer-chilled, promises to become a favorite. With a mix of local favorites and craft cocktails, it has plenty for locals and visitors. You’ll find oysters, soulful side dishes, and more on this menu.


With happy hours, gluten-free options, and something for kids, 1229 Shine gets it right.

What Can I Order at 1229 Shine?

Each menu offers choices that make the whole decision-making process deliciously difficult.

Main Menu:

Lead off with the Bites menu. Highlights include Bang Bang Grouper Bites and a Lobster Slider on a toasted brioche bun. Extras include Ceviche, with poached shrimp, mango, avocado, and plantain chips. Ask your server about the different Oyster options!


1229 Shine Sammies offers favorites and a few new twists. Its Fried Chicken Sandwich on brioche bun will give any competitor a run for its money in the sandwich wars. And its Shine Burger is a signature with special sauce and not one but two smash patties.


The Baskets and Boils part of the menu delivers coastal standards with a bit of flair. This definitely will catch your eye and tantalize your taste buds.


The Viet Cajun Bowl brings shrimp, mussels, and clams. With sausage, corn, red potato, and spices, it’s a memorable meal. Grilled Oysters Rockefeller includes bacon, baby spinach, and parmesan cheese. And the promise to ruin you for any other oysters.


Caesar and Cobb highlight the salads. Add grouper bites, shrimp, fried oysters, and more for a slight upcharge. Add Homestyle Slaw and Brussels Sprouts with Bonita Flakes for more deliciousness.

Among gluten-free options are the New Zealand Green Mussels and Deviled Eggs with lobster salad over arugula. The kids’ menu includes burgers and shrimp for the most discriminating child pallets.


While the kids nibble, consider an adult beverage. 1229 Shine has you covered.


The Spicy Cucumber Margarita has house-infused habanero tequila. A Gin Tiki is also a solid choice. 1229 Shine’s wine menu features prosecco. Try white wines from Portugal, California, and France. Red wines include cabs, pinots, and blends. 


Tidal Creek Harmonic Hefeweizen and Revelry Poke The Bear APA highlight draft beers. Enjoy domestic and imported beers. Plus, Victory Sour Monkey, Austin East Ciders Pineapple, and other distinctive brands.

Happy Hour:

Weekdays 4-6 p.m., drop by for value-priced sips and outstanding snacks. Take refreshing to a new level with a Frosé — frozen rose wine, citrus vodka, and strawberries. The Frozen Blackberry Mule takes chill to the extreme.


Indulge in Oyster Shooters and an incredible Salmon Cake Slider. And of course, oysters. What beach happy hour would be complete without them? 


For those who enjoy a date night in Market Common or could easily spend an afternoon there, 1229 Shine fits right in. We predict this new eatery will cultivate a new wave of loyal customers from near and far.
