We came by for dinner and were surprised they closed before 8 on a Friday night. Came back for lunch during the week. No line at 12:30. You order and pay for your food at the counter and they bring it on baskets. Kids meals are served in cardboard boats! We had shrimp & catfish which comes with 4 huge... More

No kitty cat on the menu, just really good catfish! Great homey restaurant! We went with a group of 7, and the manager helped us find a table in this very busy, small restaurant. Food was delicious!

This place has a variety of food but it's mainly seafood. The shrimp and hush puppies are excellent.

This is not your average seafood place but the food was amazing. We tired the shrimp, catfish, chicken tenders, and grilled tilapia. Very well seasoned and flavorful! We will become regulars here.

My fiancé and I went here for lunch after reading other reviews on trip advisor. We definitely weren't disappointed. I ordered the catfish, shrimp, and oyster platter and my fiancé ordered the ribs. They were large helpings and they were so good! The hush puppies were delicious and the catfish was also very good. I'm not a huge fan of... More

You do order at the counter and it is brought to you. Seating is limited so get there early. The shrimp was even better than South Padre. Portions were generous and food was delicious. We would have gone back but they close Sun. and Mon.
