“Best fried seafood but not the cheapest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The employees act like they hate their jobs, the place is dingy and we can never seem to get out cheap, but for fried seafood I haven't had better on the island. The gumbo can compete with the best out there and the fish tacos are definitely worth a try.

“Terrific Local Seafood Hotspot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

My husband and I went to this restaurant twice while visiting Galveston. We loved it! The coconut shrimp, catfish and cole slaw were so tasty and the portions are really large. The shrimp gumbo is fantastic! The staff is very nice and the restaurant is very clean. We are so glad that we found this terrific local hotspot.

“Don't miss this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

On our visit to Galveston we went to this restaurant 2X during our stay. Can't believe how busy this local eatery is during the entire day. The shrimp poboys, coconut shrimp, fried shrimp, fried catfish are all fabulous. The best tartar sauce and hushpuppies on the island. I'm still thinking about the food. Don't bypass this restaurant..you will be sorry

“Fried food heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

This is another local favorite. It's off of the beaten path and worth the wait. It has the best coleslaw on the island and don't miss the sweet potato fries!
