Quallity fresh and frozen seafood, good informative service.

Stopped here on the way back home. This is not a restaurant. It is a bait and seafood market. Very helpful person waited on us. Nice variety of fresh and frozen seafood. We learned that you should try to get your fresh seafood early in the week if possible. Also note that the shrimp are previously... read more

Since this was a restaurant and a fishmonger, we thought it be a good place to eat lunch. We were mistaken. The service was very good, but the seafood was mediocre especially for the price we paid.

Don't let any reviews or listings fool you, this is not a restaurant. It's a fresh seafood market, as in raw fish, shrimp, etc. to take home to cook There's no tables, waiters, cooks, drinks, bar service, etc. They apparently will steam shrimp for you to go, but that's as close to it gets as prepared food.

Great fresh seafood with house made dips, frozen appetizers. Stuffed jalopenas were great. They sell sauces,spices etc so it can be a one stop shop.

We are wanting to bring fresh fish home from the Gulf. The Port A Seafood company will help us get our choices ready, frozen rock hard and packed with dry ice to get to our home in an ice chest. It is going to be nice to have fresh fish for a meal or 2 when we get home.

Stopped by for some grouper filets, it was very fresh (not frozen then thawed) and noticed the boiled shrimp, regular or spicey! Bought several pounds and had a seafood feast. I send all my friends to Port A seafood.

Great place to get fresh seafood to take back and cook in your beach rental. If you have cookware available, it's nice to cook up some fresh fish right there.

Great service from the kindest lady you could ever meet. I traveled to Port A with my 14 year non seafood eating son. I went in to buy shrimp and she was so good to take the time to explain to me how to cook them and she even gave me a small container of her house made cocktail sauce... More

We stopped and pick up fresh shrimp and fish to bring back home. Prices were better there than back at home.

We stumbled upon Port "A" Seafood Company, which was lucky for us because we knew that we wanted to get some fresh seafood from here when we got on the island but we couldn't find any information about them on the Internet or by calling information. The seafood was very fresh! We also got some crab cakes along with their... More
