This is a fresh seafood market, not a restaurant

This is a local family run seafood business. The owner's boats go out fishing overnight, and the catch is sold at the Port A Seafood Company store the next day. You can't find seafood any fresher than that, unless you buy it directly off the boats or catch it yourself. If the store is closed, it's... read more

One of the few places in Port A where you can get shrimp from the nearby Gulf. The place is run by a very nice Vietnamese family. Everyone was courteous and helpful. The food was very reasonably priced. We are definitely coming back here on our next visit to the coast.

Great, fresh seafood and temptations such as the BEST remulade sauce I ever had over my crab cakes and temptworthy key lime cheese cake. They won't let you have the recipe for the sauce, but they are sure to give you a chance at terrific crab cakes, large shrimp and fish.

I expect in a town driven by tourism that establishments would work to make peoples visits pleasurable. The lady behind the counter was extremely rude, I guess because we asked about crawfish (which they do not sell). We would have bought fresh shrimp but it was overpriced at $13 per lb.

Our last night in Port A, we both decided that we were too tired to go out to a restaurant so we stopped at the IGA to get a bottle of cheap wine and some crackers. We then headed to the Port A Seafood Co and got a pound of steamed shrimp to take back to the hotel room. The... More

We stopped in for some fresh shrimp and maybe some crab dip to eat at the hotel. The owner was so friendly having us try her shrimp and ceviche. She boiled up the shrimp for us and packed it on ice. It was wonderful - big, fresh shrimp and homemade cocktail sauce. She only sells it in her store the... More

This is the place to buy your fresh jumbo Gulf shrimp and blue crab. It has long been our family's place to buy while on vacation and then fill up the cooler on the way home. Prices are reasonable.

Came in to buy a couple of pounds of shrimp like I do every year but the price and smell got to me. The whole place could use some cleaning. I don't think they have cleaned since last year. This used to be the place to buy seafood. Now I am passing it by. PU
