Best Cobb Salad Ever.

I have eaten here twice and both times had the Seafood Cobb Salad. Amazing. It has crab and lobster and shrimp, plus all the traditional cobb salad items. It is not cheap at $24, but it is perfection. The wait staff here is low key and smooth. The vibe is casual. It is definitely... read more

This was not my original destination, which was around the corner, but I spotted Rex's in route so I decided to give them a try. It seemed to be a seafood market first, but with seating. You would not come here for the ambiance. The service was very good. I had three items, one a Spicy Tuna Tartare that was... More

At first, when I walked in, I wondered "how good can this be?" but as I saw others come in and expertly order from the deli counter and at the tables, I realized I was in a special place. The blackboard lists all the freshest options and there is a menu complete with regular options as well. We ordered both... More

This is a neighborhood gem. The seafood is very fresh the service is good and the price is very reasonable. If you want fresh food. Visit this restaurant. BTW, the valet guys are very friendly and started our visit on a high note.

A late lunch was excellent. We West Texans are often not very adventurous and stick to the familiar; I had the seafood tacos and my husband asked for fried catfish. The tacos were delicious with something resembling a crab cake for filling rather than the usual filet. Very tasty and seasoned perfectly. Even though catfish was not listed on the... More

I have dined here on several occasions. Very predictable, excellent seafood. Love all the seafood specials listed on the blackboard including many kinds of oysters, side dishes and desserts. My friend and I shared a lobster melt and sauteed spinach and finished it off with bread pudding! Yum!

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.

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.

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.
