“Great fish great deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

It is a restaurant and fish shop, only place I know where can get tilapia without the bones and shark steaks. They have a daily specials which most plates are enough to satisfy any hunger. Service is what it is, if there for lunch yes it will be packed be so call ahead. The inside is neat see fresh fish, newspaper articles, and the catfish is caught locally big plus! Overall place for fried seafood yum!

“Great food, and lots of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

Have eaten here many time, but never wrote a review. But everything I have had has been great. I started off with the catfish someone had recommended, and it was well worth it. Then moved on to the jumbo shrimp, new favorite. If you have never had Basa (fish) you should try it, it has a great flavor.
You have plenty to chose from as far as sides go, my favorite is the fried mushrooms and fried okra, they also have good hushpuppies. You get plenty of food. Cant go wrongwith this place. It is kind of a hidden jewel in KCK.
I have never eaten inside, it is kinda small, but always get mine to go, and you can call ahead of time. And if you like fresh fish, and shrimp...etc...they have an area where you can get it fresh...pretty good deals.

“The best fried oysters that I have EVER had!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We did carry out-- two pints of fried oysters and a side of hush puppies for about $30, but it seemed like a LOT more than two pints to us. Between 3 adults, we could only finish off one pint. My family and I love fried oysters and we all agreed that these were the largest and best that we have every had. The hush puppies were also great. We didn't get additional sides because we have lots of fresh veggies from our garden right now, but I cannot wait to try the gumbo, red beans and rice, and okra. Service was also fast--about 10 minutes. If you like seafood, you have got to try this place out. YUM!
