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

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!
