Crab cakes and Martinis! Boom!

This is a nice little place in CC. We have eaten here on many occasionas, but I cannot pass up the crab cakes. I don't know what makes them so good, but they are deliscious as all get out. The bar tender always makes my Goose extra dirty with 3 olives perfectly!

Restaurant was super clean and comfortable. Fresh, modern decor, well lit and bright. All staff was super friendly and accommodating. Salad wedge was covered in bright green parsley/thyme vinaigrette that lacked flavor but my husbands house pecan was delicious. The seafood pasta jambalaya was hugh, full of seafood and absolutely delicious. Enjoyed the Texas wine which was similar to Montepulciano.

great food, bbq salmon salad is best you have ever eaten. could eat breakfast, lunch and dinner each day we were there. It is hard to beat them, they serve fresh fish not like chains that fly it in from around the country. eating here is like eating with good friends. great staff and servers.

We had lunch here after a visit to the Texas state aquarium. Parking is limited, but we were able to find a place on the street. We were there on a Friday and there were lots of business people there for lunch. We were seated quickly. Paul our waiter was very good. There were children on our group and there... More

Family dinner. Two types of shrimp ordered...all rubbery. Cocktail sauce awful..Had to get a side of horseradish for it. nueces sauce very disappointing. my fish itself was good after I scraped off the sauce. Everyone was polite at dinner but afterwards we all said how it wasn't good and we would not go back. Service was less than stellar although... More

The food is over-priced, portions small, and not really tasteful. The rice that accompanied my meal was not particularly good. The green beans were undercooked, tough, not crisp. The scallops were small (quarter sized at best), and over salted. The mango salsa was not what you would expect of anything called a 'salsa'. It was not a bit spicy. Rather... More

When we went into the restaurant the hostess and servers couldn't decide if they had a table or not. After some to do we were seated in a booth. When we were seated the lighting was appropriate for evening dining but half way through our meat the light became very bright and it was like we were eating at the... More

This place was very close to the "boardwalk". I had seafood gumbo, which was good and the BBQ salmon salad, which was plenty for dinner. My husband had a breaded tilapia and it was nice. We also tried a Texas blend wine bottled by Becker Vineyards (nearby). On Wednesdays, they have buy a bottle at 1/2 price.

We order a personalized seafood grilled platter and it was awesome. Serviced within 10 minutes. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I wanted more time to select what I wanted to eat and she clarified my questions and waited patiently. She made sure that though it was not available in the menu, she would get it done for me....
