Grilled fish had a good flavor. Mexican cocktail did not need anything added, but the raw oysters were a little gooey. Will come back eventually.

I like spicy food but the crawfish chowder is too spicy. The catfish fillets are too thin and over fried most of the time.

This is a local place that is a great place for a fish dinner, that's affordable and just a great place to hang out with coworkers, friends or family. Went with 6 people everyone ordered something different and everyone was happy. I had the fried catfish, shrimp and oysters and it was perfectly fried.

My friends and I stopped here to eat lunch on one of their recommendations. I'm not a huge fan of seafood but I can usually find something that's appealing to eat. This place ended up disappointing, though. I had the basket of four shrimp and one catfish filet and fries for $12 which I thought was very overpriced. When I... More

We were happily surprised with the portion size, and the great selections on the menu. Just looking for appetzers, we chose shrimp, and a side of jalapenos, breaded ever - so -slightly in cornmeal and deep fried to perfection. The rest of the menu looked just as good, so a return trip is in order.

Fried catfish and hush puppies are good, but try the salmon!!!! It's awesome. More pricey, but worth it. Never a long wait. Food is cooked to order.

This is the best fish in Texas! You won't be disappointed. The catfish tastes like it just came out of the lake. Have a brew & listen to the blues. Very well worth the trip.

Went for an early Valentines lunch. We had never been there before and were pleasantly surprised at the variety of seafood choices and the reasonable prices. My husband had the Red Snapper Vera Cruz - a whole fish from the grill. Only the bones were left!
