You would not think that good seafood could necessarily be found in an area that was not on the coast. However, this establishment served excellent catfish and scallops. As you entered the restaurant, the smell was definitely fishy, but I guess we got used to that. The tabasco sauce had been on the table so long that it had fermented... More

I eat here on a regular basis, you will not be disappointed. Best gumbo in all of east Texas. Great menu lots of selections and you can have it fried or grilled your choice.

There was plenty of food for the two of us and it was very tasty and delicious. Our server was very attentive and friendly, this was just a nice... More

We visited on a Friday night April 1 and it was packed. We had known they had changed hands a few months earlier. We were greeted by an oriental woman and told sit anywhere. All was going good, GREAT waitress but when we got our fried catfish I swear there was NO catfish under the breading. Usually the breading is... More

We had the gumbo. They have a basic gumbo to which they add whatever you like. If you like crawfish they have some of the best. The red snapper was not as good as it seemed overdone.

Lake Jackson Seafood is pretty good. The prices are a little high for the amount of food that you get but it is good.

All of the sides are out of a can, nothing made fresh except the seafood which is bland and overcooked. The restaurant is not very clean. The condiment containers always seem dirty from other people using them with greasy hands, that turns me off. We quit going.

Resturant was busy and seemed to be understaffed although it was noon on Sunday so an after church crowd should have been typical. The waitress literally was running from table to table and to kitchen. She was covered in sweat and it was dripping in plates. I hate to complain but it was so gross and she wiped her sweat... More
