“Delicious seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Like I am sure everyone has said, you can't miss the bright orange building! It has a hole in the wall atmosphere (which we appreciate) and the food is amazing! The varieties of oysters on the half shell is awesome! And the shrimp poboys are yummy! Then, there is the Tom Yum soup which my husband gets EVERY time we go!
I will be honest, the service used to be atrocious but it is greatly improved!

“Great oysters, fried catfish and prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

You can't miss this building - it's painted bright orange! And you won't want to miss their oysters. Great quality! We've tried all the oysters - raw and prepared. The raw are great and our favorite baked ones are the La Frontera oysters. I love the Fried Catfish and the prices are great. Casual atmosphere and the waitstaff is good.

“Great oysters and fish. Avoid the gumbo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place has no equal in Austin for their oysters. Their seafood selections are awesome too. The gumbo is not great and the Tom yum soup is horrible.
Étouffée is fair.
The place sometimes has a funky cleaning product smell that's an appetite killer.

“Such a great place to have outside Austin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The staff is great. The food is awesome. The wait moves quickly and is worth every minute. Get the oysters - raw and cooked. Get the papaya salad. Just go there.

The Hubby and I went here for my birthday. We wanted to try somewhere new. The food was Wonderful!!! Hubby and I shared a platter of oysters(12) and shrimp(12) w/ fries. I had 6 oysters on the half shell they were fresh and yummy. My hubby had crab stuffed japalenos they were wonderful as well!!! The only down side is they only serve beer and wine. Our waitress was wonderful all the staff was very friendly.
