Another regular stop for us when we're in SPI.

We always walk out of here feeling stuffed at a good value price. They offer fried (gluten free) okra, shrimp and scallops with really good ice tea, so they get our stamp of approval. The staff is always friendly and attentive.

We started it off with "New Orleans" shrimp (aka BBQ shrimp), which is one of my favorites when I'm in New Orleans. It was much cheaper and just as good. For my entree I had the blackened red snapper with potatoes and spicy corn. Potatoes were good, but the rest was really good. The wife had shrimp etouffee and it... More

Corn and potatoes were very good...oysters, not so much. They had a very strong odor and did not taste fresh. In all fairness, my family seemed to like their food. Staff was friendly.

For those who may not know, there is one particularly successful restaurant entrepreneur who owns multiple establishments in Port Isabel, Brownsville, and the island. Many of his restaurants share the same recipes. some even have the exact same menu. nothing wrong with that, except for it creates less dining opportunities for us as patrons. Dirty Al's, Pelican Station (Port I.)... More

Staff at hotel I stayed at recommended this place and I decided to go. I didn't get to try it last time I visited SPI. Turned out to be very very good!! Excellent seafood with generous portions. Loved the steak and shrimp! Both items cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend.
