Want a casual shorts and tee shirt place with cheap beer and oysters then you will love this place. Inside or outside is great. I had Blue Moon draft (large glass 22 oz ) for 3.25 and oysters for 10.95. We watched the World Cup and in general had a great time Service was very good. I'll certainly be back... More

This place is in the middle of the boat docks. There is ample outside seating with live entertainment. We chose to sit inside. Good view of boats coming and going. We had a super server, Kyle. If you ask for him, you will be sure to have the best possible service. The sweetened ice tea was the best I have... More

Great venue! Not as crowded as the rest of the boardwalk there in Kemah. We enjoyed the shrimp and crawdad boil. The service was quick and the wait staff friendly. Liked that they sent a text when the table was ready. Nice outside seating area. The night the we were there there was a local band, Played mostly covers but... More

Real good meal, order the extra spicy if you can hang! Live music and cold beer, what more do you need when eating mudbugs?

Stopped by here for lunch after we hit the Seabrook seafood shops across the bridge in Seabrook. Got raw oysters and the 5 Lb crawfish special -around $6/lb I think it was. Decent size. Good flavor, spicy. Been here several times. The food is always good.

We stopped here thanks to friend's advise, specifically to try the crocodile. The place is original, as it resembles a boat or a house in a swap. The food is really good, a little bit spicy but nothing to worry about. They have a great variety of dishes and each we try were really good. Prices are reasonable, nothing its... More
