The best oysters and shrimp cocktails I think in Austin. Environment is not loud but quiet and quietly lit. Bar service make great drinks with good wines by the glass or bottle. The grilled salmon is awesome as well as the green pepper steak.

If you want seafood, the buzz in town is Eddie V's Edgewater Grille. The Gulf Coast menu features lots of seafood - oysters, gulf snapper, fresh tuna, lobster, plus great prime steaks and chops. Expect a hip and high energy dining experience. Savor classic seafood starters like oysters on the half shell, fried coldwater baby lobster tail, and famous All Lump Crab Cakes. The extensive wine list features over 150 selections.
