Excellent choice of Seafood

Ordered several pounds of lobster and shrimp for a seven fish feast for the Christmas Holiday. Definitely did not disappoint and the pre-order was ready with no hitches. Definitely recommend for your seafood to cook at home. I have also eaten here and it is also great.

We went to Rex's last night April 11 and had the consistently fabulous seafood there. The service, though, was awful last night. Rushed, unfriendly, impatient. Really?? Get servers who know how to move fast AND be gracious. Or get more servers. It REALLY takes away from the entire experience.

This place has the potential to be good it is just a little to pricey to experience to the fullest. Good service tho the people were super friendly.

I thought this was a friendly, neighborhood-like restaurant and smaller than I expected. I had a great steak and the atmosphere is dark (at night) and comfy.

We visited Rex's Seafood Market after having it on our list for a long time. It is a combination Seafood Counter and Restaurant. You can make a reservation, and if it is in prime dining times, make sure to do this. We were seated promptly, and while waiting had an appetizer of mussels, garlic and lemon. Nice size serving and... More

Very busy market/ dining area with fresh seafood offerings that test the limits of your wallet. EVERYTHING is expensive. Wine mark-up is heavy handed as well. Service is fair and friendly. I enjoyed the Diver Scallops - all 4 of them - for $29.00.

Overall a very good meal. The flounder was excellent!! Wasn't even that hungry and still thought it was delicious. Ceviche could have just a touch more lime juice...the seafood steamer was also very good!

We love Rex's and try to eat there anytime we are in Dallas. This visit I ordered the halibut and creamed spinach. All the food was perfectly cooked and the portions at night are quite large. I should have split my fish with someone. The food is always good and the table service is wonderful.

Good food with attentive wait staff. Not maybe a review of the place itself, but the diners in the place were great as well. Friendly and nice. The pistachio coated flounder was great. Terrific side of cheese grits. The halibut cheeks have to be had to be believed. Head there(if you can get a table) on friday for excellent lobster.

Went on a Friday afternoon for late lunch; only a few tables with customers. Jaime was our super-helpful server at first, then Patrick. We started with the Oregon oysters that had just come in for the winter season. They were slurped down all too fast with the great horseradish and selection of hot sauces. Jaime suggested the cornmeal battered shrimp... More
