If you want seafood it's here!

family restaurant with a good variety menu. I have been going to this chain of restaurants since the first one opening on Rector Street in San Antonio. They have great shrimp plates and they still serve pitchers of beer at a reasonable price. Atmosphere does lack some but the food is great.

We try to eat there at least once a month. Service is quick and the food is very good. We never feel rushed to 'eat & leave', quite relaxing.

First, it's not fancy, you place your order at the front, then place drink order, then take ticket to host to get your table, but the food is wonderful. Our favorite is the beef cabob stuffed shrimp, OMG we have to share as so much food. I always feel bad for the folk who come around to refill your beverages,... More

Sea Island is our favorite place to go when we want fish. They have a complete menu for all and even one for lunch specials, grilled or fried alone with wine if you like. The staff is attentive to all your needs. All this for a very low price and it is clean and located in the Forum shopping Mall... More

The best seafood place to eat. With wonderful service, food and drinks. The staff have been there for a longtime and can't be any nicer than they are. Love so many of there menu items. My husband and I have never had a bad meal here. You can't go wrong with anything you order.

The restaurant was located across the street from our hotel so we thought we would give it a try. The prices were very reasonable and the food was good. The service was a bit slow but we were told that one of the cooks had been burned by oil, so things were a little slow that night. All in all,... More

Not the best seafood I've had, but far from the worst. My mom and I had lunch. She ordered the shrimp feast, and they shorted her on the shrimp.
