Love this place. Went for lunch today. It was slow for a Friday but the food and service were excellent. I had the blackened shrimp lunch tacos. They were yummy. Husband and son had all you can eat fried shrimp and fish. No delays on refills. I tried the fish and it was excellent. I will definitely order it next... More

I think we got lucky that our group of 10 was seated so quickly upstairs but it was a hot day and not much a/c up there. The menu has a very large selection of items, and our... More

We went to celebrate my niece birthday. We had two orders of boiled crawfish and two orders of catfish. Our waiter was attentive. We sat upstairs. The crawfish seemed water logged and the flavor was weak. When we point it out to the waiter, she took our order back. When she returned, someone had sprinkled seasoning over them and put... More

I was pleasantly surprised. The portions were very generous and the food delicious. The ambiance was a lot of fun (live music), the view fantastic, the service quite good and the decor was entertaining. The food was perfectly cooked. I had the seafood skewers and could only finish half. My fiance had a ginormous basket of fried fish and alligator... More

My family and I stopped in for lunch and have a wonderful waiter! The sea food was fresh and delicious and the adult drinks were cold!

So after a long fun day at Kemah Boardwalk, we need up at Crazy Alan's Swamp Shack for dinner with friends and family. Have some amazing craw-fish and seafood. The drinks were great as well. I truly recommend this place can't wait to go back soon.
