We eat there at least two times a month, and have for 20 years. I cannot remember ever having a bad meal. Always good no matter what you get.

This was our second time to visit Sea Island Shrimp House and it was just as good as the first! We enjoyed a side salad and Gumbo, shrimp linguini, and a children's chicken tender basket with fries. Needless to say, there was not a bite...More

Amazing selection of different seafood items, reasonably priced and good service. Majority of items fried, but that's normal and most popular. Generous portions for price.

Stopped in because of the reviews and weren't disappointed. This place had the cheapest oysters and they were very fresh!! The seafood that we ordered was average to a little bit better but I would come back for the oysters alone!!

Actually not certain which of their locations we were at last night but it is just a fun, casual place to get great seafood. Clean, nice seating, extremely personable and pleasant staff. My chipotle fish tacos were excellent, my husband's shrimp cookeed very well.

Seafood is perfectly prepared and fresh! I love the charbroiled shrimp but the fried shrimp and oysters are good too. Hush puppies are out of this world. The spinach is seasoned well with just the right amount of garlic. Highly recommend.

If you want something fast simple and good, you should try this when you're in San Antonio Texas. The prices are very reasonable and the menu is great. You will have the option of different sides to choose from. I would suggest the hush puppies

I did not see them on the menu when we were there in late October. So, I am not sure if that applies year round or not.
