Just a good solid restaurant. The menu had a wide selection as far as food types went. The service was fast with experienced staff. Portions were huge so take-away was the norm.

We just ate here. The salad was very crisp. We knew the filet would not be wonderful based on the price. The major complaint was 2 young kids who were apparently somehow related to someone on staff who turned the restaurant into their playground running and even yelling. Completely ruined our dining experience. It is not a fine dining establishment.... More

We were a little doubtful when we saw it was an Asian style seafood place. However the staff was cheerful and friendly. The server took great care of our table. I personally ate the seafood po boy. It had a mix of shrimp, fish, and maybe crab? Anyway, not bad if you like fried seafood. I would dare say not... More

doesn't look great from outside but motel staff recommended, which should have been my first clue to avoid... every thing is deep fried, and my shrimp tasted of old, used up oil... the whole atmosphere is oily, floors, tables seem to have coating of it I will say the wait staff is great, friendly and efficeint

I half expected to be disappointed. Its on the main route through a touristy town, so I thought it would just be another sea food place intended to placate tourists with low expectations. I was wrong! The place is very clean, and though I know we were there during the off-season, both the service and food were top notch. I... More

Like most sea food restaurants in this part of Texas that aren't overtly pricey or fancy, this restaurant offers mostly fried sea food. However the menu is large, and the food is good. You get the feeling this used to be a Chinese Buffet, and and the egg rolls and fried rice on the menu only add credence to that... More

You'd think being this close to water they'd have fresh fish on the menu..... I hate deep fried food! Maybe it was because it was late in the evening and the cooks wanted to o home, but the food was horrible. I cannot ever go back the this place again.

We went to Bayside Seafood on a Sunday afternoon. My husband and I shared the Bayside Special Platter which included fried fish, shrimp, scallops, crayfish, oysters, our choice of a small salad and baked potato. The salad and baked potato were fine. The fish was mushy, the oysters had a bad taste, and the scallop was greasy and had a... More
