I ate here based on other reviews on tripadvisor and was pleased with the experience. Myself and a co-worker dropped in for dinner and sat in the bar area. The waitress was friendly and took good care of us. The restaurant is very modern, clean and an upbeat atmosphere. A good place to relax as well as eat. I had... More

Not a good visit. Took 15 before a waitress came to take our order. No they were not busy. The shrimp cocktail was cool not cold and the sauce was a little heavy with horseradish. The chef salad had wilted and bad lettuce and a strange taste...it was not finished. The broiled flounder was ok the spices were not evenly... More

I've been here several times and always get the country fried steak with gravy. It's impossible to find good fried steak up north so when I'm visiting TX this is one of my favorite places. Restaurant is clean, food is always great. They have tables for dining and a sports bar area if you want something more casual.

My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner. We started off with onion petals. They were pretty good. The main entrees weren't that great. I have the BBQ macroni burger. The burge patty was dry and the macroni had an off taste. My wife had the shrimp. They were not very special. I was told that this was one... More

I like the Shellfish a lot, the food is very good, the crab dip appetizer is delicious, the fried shrimp is excellent. They don't carry a variety of wines, it said they did on the website, but when asked to bring a wine list, they didn't have one and only carried a house wine.

We visited the Shellfish Sports Bar on the eve of the NBA Game 7 Championship. It was our first time there and the restaurant was fairly crowded due to the basketball event, even though it was a Sunday night. The food was tasty and the beers were reasonable and had good variety. We had the loaded nachos and followed with... More
