The Best Restaurant in Port Lavaca

I cannot imagine what anyone wouldn't like about this restaurant. We are only here for a couple of weeks, but have eaten here 5 times. Amazing salmon burger, one of the best chicken fried steaks ever, and the best fried cod ever (think of a thick cod steak with the perfect crust cooked to... read more

Food very overpriced. Atmosphere not as friendly as expected. Food was average, caters more to burger lovers it seems. Desserts were good.

Stopped by for a business lunch mid week. They were busy and short staffed. Took a while to take or order and receive our meal. The shrimp platter was great. Nice big gulf shrimp. Good flavor and generous portions. I even liked the cole slaw which I am particular about.

We arrived at the restaurant with high hopes for a great meal. The outside is cool and there was a gator in the water to greet you. The ambiance was nice. Service is slow. My new potatoes were raw and my veggies slathered with olive oil and ice cold. Bummer. We ordered oysters Rockefeller and got something with cold spinach... More

I had eaten there before and thought I previously had a bad visit. I tried it again and it was probably worse than the last time. The physical appearance of the place leads one to believe that it is a quality restaurant. It isn't! I waited for an hour to get my food, after it was ordered. Apparently there was... More

First time dining here and the service and food were excellent. We were seated pretty quickly and our waitress was extremely friendly. There were five in my group and everyone's food was wonderful. $18.00 Friday night prime rib special was excellent.
