The rock shrimp and blackened grouper sandwich were very good. Incredibly fresh seafood. My Dad is one of the commercial fisherman that deliver to the seafood house next door and ensures that the food comes straight from the boat to the table. Great place

I stopped in for a quick lunch and a beer. I have always enjoyed the Tiki bar at the back of the restaurant because it has a nice view of the river. You can watch the boats coming and going and the fish jumping. I ordered the bay scallops lunch which was a good sized portion (over 30 of them)... More

We ate here on a suggestion from a friend. It was the best seafood ever. It was the freshest grouper and shrimp we had ever eaten. The location was good and the service was excellent. The feta cheese appetizer was excellent. We would recommend it to anyone .

After an afternoon out on the bayou, Rusty Bellies was recommended to us by our skipper. The choice of food, service and location could not be faulted. I'd recommend a day or evening at the Sponge Docks for couples or families.

This is way down at the end of the sponge docks. We ate lunch inside because it was so hot outside. We ordered grilled grouper and beans with rice. It was very good, but small portions. For lunch and portion size it was overpriced. They have a happy hour and later music. I think we will stick to the Greek... More
