Dear Friends, You definitely should try to make your way here if you're in Austin. It's a little store tucked away on Lavaca St and it shares the seating with the bar next door. The Po' Boys here are large and very tasty. The prices range from $10 to $22 for them depending on the protein you want. I got... More

It's a little less than atmospheric, but the food makes up for it. Had excellent blackened red fish tacos (at the recommendation of the staff). Perfectly cooked, enormous portions of fish, great fresh taste. Yes, $17 for tacos is a bit steep, but I thought the value was excellent for the quality. I didn't order sides but glad I did... More

We were recommended this place to eat and it was excellent. The queue for food was long and we could see why. We ate in the bar so had some good drinks as well. Amazing food and portion size is substantial. The price was fantastic as well. Definitely recommend as a goto place in Austin

I was on my way to another place for a beer, but was hungry for something unique and quick/simple and for take out, and happened upon this casual spot. I ordered the corn-meal battered gulf oysters, which were sensational. They were an order of 12 and served with remoulade sauce and salsa. The oyster were lightly battered, not overly cooked,...

We loved their food when the served out of a food truck in a parking lot off Congress.This was our first visit to a brick and mortar location adjoining a bar in the Warehouse District.The good news is that the food is just as good and the seating options much better...A large slab of super fresh Tuna ,blackened and sautéed...

I went to Turf N Surf for the first time 9/14/14. As other reviews have pointed out the ingredients they use are fresh and very delicious. I had the blackened steak poboy and a side of jalepeno hush puppies. the blackened steak, and whatever sauce they put on it, was outstanding! I will definitely return for this sandwich. Parking is...

I had the blackened fish taco which was delicious . My husband had the blackened shrimp po'boy which was delicious albeit messy to eat ( he said he'd get the blackened shrimp taco if we came again). Both of us agreed we would recommend this place

Seriously, I had no real expectations for the tacos. The place is basically a small window inside a bar on Lavaca. But the blackened Mahi fish tacos were the best tacos I can remember eating. For Chicago people, these tacos make the tacos at Big Star taste like a T Bell Chalupa. Also tried crawfish tacos, which were also excellent.... More

These folks have the best spot on the new Barton Springs food court; it's under the shade of a large tree. They have a great formula. They offer a lot of different meats and seafood cooked either grilled, blackened or fried and then served with a salad, in tacos or as a po'boy. The resulting number of choices becomes mindboggling... More
