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

Went on a Friday with family while I was visiting them. I am from Dallas but this restaurant was new to me. We arrived at our planned time of 1245 to miss the lunch crown and that worked well. Most of the business men and women were gone or leaving at that time. If you have any issues with standing... More

This is a return trip to Rex's. First time was a stumble upon lunch that was out of this world. So when I returned to Dallas on business I wanted to have dinner at Rex's. First of all, my most sincere apologies to the staff for my grouchiness! I gave my husband one task and it was to make reservations... More

Deep in the heart of Texas is a laid back, excellent seafood restaurant with a terrific selection of fresh seafood from every coast. A big blackboard is updated daily with the specials and latest arrivals. I would recommend it to even Louisiana seafood lovers who can recognize fresh fish at all times!

Had a great tasting lunch last week while in Dallas on business. The ceviche was fresh and very tasty. Was the best thing to start out with. We then ordered the fish tacos...best I have ever had. Seasoned just right, an ample serving of fresh ingredients. I thought I was on the beach! Service was excellent! Make this the go... More

This place has some of the best seafood in all of Dallas in my opinion. The best options are to see what are in season and go with that for dinner.

My first visit and enjoyed it very much. The shrimp cocktail was delicious as was our fish entrees. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. The red beans and rice was a joke. They must have come right out of a can. That was my only disappointment of the evening. For desert, we had the bread pudding and it was... More

Happened in on a day that Fish and Chips were the special. They were excellent and the cole slaw that accompanied it was delicious. I like the fish tacos and gumbo but was glad I stepped out of the comfort zone and ordered something different.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch this weekend. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. She had the shrimp salad with lump crab and I had the swordfish with okra creole and coleslaw. Her salad was great same with my swordfish, coleslaw nothing special. It costs about $25-$30 per person with free valet parking. Worth the money good food.
