We went to dinner at Shrempy's last night and everyone loved it. My husband had a steak and he thought it was delicious. I had the Pico Burger and it was very good. Our family ordered fish and it was all very fresh and had a great flavor. I'm not a fan of eating fish but it was so good... More

Big enough to share. You can buy beer next door and bring it to drink with your burger. Also love the Blue Cheese burger and french fries.

Just had to have a great steak, which means another trip to Shempy's Grill! If you haven't been able to find a good steak in southern Texas, please, please go here. I have had many, many steaks here and not once have they ever cooked it wrong! Can't say that for A1 Steakhouse, J.D.'s, or Charlotte Plumber's. Would never buy... More

Not much to look at on the outside or the inside. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. Prices were moderate.

Small restaurant but has outdoor seating, as well. BYOB. The fish is the best & the tater tots are excellent! Good service & very professional servers. Can't wait to go back.

We visited Shempy's with some friends with a party of 16. Surprisingly the service was great with such a large party especially with a small interior. The catfish was excellent. Not crazy about the crab cakes. We did see a NICE platter served behind us so had to ask what they ordered and it turns out that Shempy cooks their... More

Good, fresh seafood with something on the menu for everyone. The prices for fresh, local seafood are in line with other "higher profile" restaurants and there are plenty of choices for all ages.

A little pricey. Good shrimp. Crab cakes not the best. Attentive server. Small cafe. Not a lot of selection of seafood.
