“Good seafood, terrible ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Had the oyster and shrimp combo. Very good food. Sides are Cole slaw and fries, that's it. Very rustic decor, very non attentive wait staff. Place was packed tho.

“GREAT FOOD - terrible service. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

The fried shrimp are to die for.
(really good) And that keeps us coming back. But the people who work here, are not being managed very well.
its because there in amarillo,
that this place will Continue to thrive. But if it was located somewhere like New Orleans
where good fried shrimp is
a dime a dozen.
They would go out of business in a Hurry, for the lack of service.

“Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We really enjoyed the food. The oysters were great. The waiter was friendly and we really enjoyed this place. Don't let outside looks fool you. I wish we lived closer and could go often.

“Good Shrimp & Oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Some items on the menu include; Fresh Oysters, Oysters on the Half-Shell, Fried Oyster and Catfish Combo, Corn Flake Fried Shrimp and Fries, Full Order Spicy Shrimp. I had the Fried Shrimp & Fries and my spouse had Broiled Shrimp. Both were very tasty. This is a very rustic place and not fancy by any means but a down to earth local restaurant.

“Yummy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

They serve oysters on the half shell, fried oysters, fries catfish, fried shrimp, boiled shrimp and stuffed crab. It comes with hush puppies fries and slaw. I had the frie oysters and stuffed crab. My husband had the fried oysters and fried catfish. Everything was delicious.
It's a very small place, run by the owners. They serve beer and wine coolers.
This was our first visit, I think it may be Amarillo's best kept secret!!!!
