We've tried many of the menu items, and there is not one we didn't like so far. Give the Baked Oysters a try for a different appetizer. The crawfish bisque is very flavorful, too. My favorite is the seafood gumbo - good combination of ingredients obviously started off with a pleasant roux. They have grilled vegetables as an alternate to fries. As mentioned before, you can't go wrong with the catfish, shrimp, oysters or tilapia. They will prepare it about any way you like. Make sure to check out the specials board when you come in. Jimmy always has something interesting there.

The is a good place to go for fried or grilled seafood. Their gumbo is good also. This restaurant is quieter than many. Their fresh oyster are good quality.

Had to wait 1 hour for the appetizers and the place was not even busy. The food is mediocre. Definitely not worth the price. For the price we could have eaten at Pappadeux' and they have much better food and larger servings.

Great value. Excellent seafood. The best Crawfish Bisque I've ever had. You can also purchase the bisque by the gallon to take home and freeze. Fantastic service. Only problem I've ever had, is because the place is so busy and due to the small size of the restaurant, you're usually waiting for seating.

Best seafood for not being near saltwater! A varied menu and good casual service. Crab cakes served with white sauce, fried shrimp, catfish etc. a must if you love casual Texas coastal seafood!
