Best Sea Food In Alamo City

To begin with, I'm one of those individuals who loves fresh sea food, just not very often. Unlike my wife who could probably eat it everyday, my preference would be to have it maybe five or six times a year. My wife grew up on the Texas coast and raised by a family that included several... read more

Just not good food. Way overpriced and mediocre at best. You might get the same quality at Long John Silvers. The front service clerk (male) was really nice and patient. The lady you get food from not nice at all. The shrimp ceviche had no taste. If you are forced to go, have the fries and seafood caldo.

I expected much more. Somewhat mushy shrimp. Heavy breading on everything. Essentially self service - "waiters" clear table and expect tip. Paper napkins and forks - no knives. Must be the large portions and moderate prices that makes it so popular.

Thank you for joining us! I apologize that we did not meet your expectations. We are a fast casual establishment with quality seafood at a great value. We do have dining room attendants that will refill drinks and clear tables, but tipping is not expected. We hope you would join us again soon! More

My wife thinks it's funny but I have to stop at sea Island every time we go through San Antonio. Just my kind of food, tasty grilled and fried seafood and top notch service. I always get an extra grilled shrimp skewer.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dining experience. The young man named Eric went above and beyond to recommend great dishes. The hostess was a sweetheart and the manager also named Eric made sure we were enjoying our meal. We really appreciate great management and staff. Love the vibe!!! Thanks all
