Date night with the hubs. We sat outside, which is sometimes unbearable in August in the Texas heat but the breeze coming off the water was wonderful. I had the Blue Cat Plate and hubby had the crawfish and alligator ettouffe. Both came out quickly and were hot and delicious. Drinks were a little on the pricey side but were... More

There is much competition in this part of the world for the best seafood. The Shack is a must for anyone who loves Gulf Shrimps. They are cooked up in many different styles. ALL of them perfect. If there is any minus points, it's the difference in price for their all you can eat specials. Monday through Thursday, $16.95. Friday... More

This is a fun place to hang out. The staff is always friendly, the manager always comes by or at least greets you on entry or departure and asks if everything was ok. On a nice day or night, sitting outside, listening to the band or watching the boats is aways a good time. If you go upstairs inside, there... More

We stopped in here after taking a sunset sailboat ride at 8:30. There was live music outside and lots of outdoor seating. Because of the heat we sat inside. It was small and a little noisy but the food was awesome and the bartender superb. We can't wait to go back.

Freezer burned crab meat. You would think being on the water the blue crab and shrimp would be fresh but that wasn't so. The king crab, dunginess crab, snow crab all freezer burnt. I even kept all the meat on the side to show the manager you would think I would be offered something else but she didn't so that... More

Chris, I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience at the Swamp Shack. The blue crab and the shrimp do come from the gulf fresh here in the area. The other crab is purchased frozen due to the location of there natural fishing grounds. I will send you something in a private message. I would hope... More

In the quest for good food, the Colorado Springs Food Guy visited Crazy Alan's Swamp Shack located at 310 Texas Avenue, Kemah, TX 77565. This upbeat, casual eatery specializes in bayou inspired seafood. The crawfish and gator are some of their more popular items. The red snapper, frog legs, and the Possum burger (not made from possum meat) were also... More

Stopped by with the family on A Friday around 6pm. No wait, great patio seating. The Crawford were seasoned to perfection, and priced to be eaten! I recommend it to anyone in the Kemah and Seabrook area that needs a good Cajun fix.
