Very good

We have mixed opinions on Shellfish! I enjoyed it but was terribly disappointed in the service. My husband thinks that for as much as they're charging it should have been better all the way around. Although he does agree that the shrimp was delicious.

This is a great place! Nice atmosphere, good service and great food. We made a reservation and we walked right in and were seated on a busy Saturday night. The chicken sandwich was the best! The fried fish sandwich and fish tacos were also very good. The appetizers were good, too. Try the onion pearls! Reasonably priced for what you... More

Hands down one of the best places that I have eaten in awhile. Great food options, and atmosphere. Attentive staff, and top notch seafood. A must if you are in town.

We went here with friends to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived we asked for a drink menu. The waitress brought us a binder with a very large stain on it. Inside were 7 pages of different beers, no wine list or specialty drinks just beer. What kind of bar doesn't have a wine list or specialty dink menu? We... More

We live in the Port Lavaca area. We have tried most of the restaurants in the area. We have been told shellfish was pricey, finally decided to try it out.The appetizer was fresh and tasted great (CRAB SPINACHE DIP). The broiled halibut was dry with no flavor,potatoes no flavor, vegatables were frozen and very little. The shrimp and pasta had... More

we had a great meal here. Chef came out and talked with us on how we wanted our fish prepared. Waitress, Ariel was friendly and prompt. I recommend you stop by and enjoy this clean, friendly place.

My daughter and I ate here while staying at the Holiday Inn which is conveniently located next door. There was a bit of a wait as we went on a busy Friday night, but were eventually seated in a large comfortable booth. The menu has a bit of everything from pizzas to steaks to seafood. They also have a good... More

My husband is temporarily located there for work. Therefore we eat out every night. We only choose Shellfish because it is clean and conveniently located and has a bar. The wait staff are friendly. The atmosphere is laid back. However, the 2 chics that are barbacks only pay attention to you if you tickle their ego. The food is sub... More

Good food, friendly staff, great beer selection, reasonable prices. Watch out for the "gator" by the parking lot. A bit noisy.

Beautiful building, the shrimp was fresh and very good but As a whole the meal was pretty bland. Blackened swordfish was mild and tasty. Pastas were very very bland. For the cost, I would recommend looking for a different restaurant.
