I had the 50 year favorites, and my wife had the lunch special. It was very good. The seafood was cooked perfectly. The spinach and the fried okra were both delicious. I do recommend eating here.

Excellent service & yummy food here. The manager always greets all customers as they come in & goes to each table to make sure you are having the best dining experience. I highly recommend Sea Island in Selma.

Sea Island is better than LJS but the seafood didn't taste fresh to me. The PICS of the food looked inviting but the presentation and flavor wasn't memorable. No plans of returning soon as there are better options within 15 minutes drive.

There are places where you can get seafood cheaper, but it's not that good. There are places where you can get better seafood, but you need to take out a second mortgage before you go. Sea Island Shrimp House gives you generous portions at a very reasonable price. I love cod. Hate pollock, love cod!!! I also love shrimp, oysters... More

I went for a business lunch last week and tried the lemon pepper fish and shrimp with Cole slaw and hot green beans. Food was exceptional. There is always a manager walking around to make sure everything is great. Appreciate the extra care Sea Island gives its customers!!!

In the mood for fish, so we stopped here. It is decent. I wouldn't call it "great," but is good. Definitely better than the fast food seafood places. I do recommend eating here.

I ate at Sea Island Shrimp House for the first time in April on a business trip to San Antonio and it was as good as I was told. It's not fancy, but if you're looking for good fresh fried shrimp and fish - this is the place. For under $10, I got 7 nice sized shrimp, 2 fish fillets,... More

One of my favorites for a long time. The classic Shrimp Salad is a delicious main course or eaten as a salad. Nearly any dish you order will be well prepared and very tasty. Their shrimp dishes are always over the top. Fried shrimp are also a great item to try. Service and wait staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

We try to eat there at least once a month. Service is quick and the food is very good. We never feel rushed to 'eat & leave', quite relaxing.

family restaurant with a good variety menu. I have been going to this chain of restaurants since the first one opening on Rector Street in San Antonio. They have great shrimp plates and they still serve pitchers of beer at a reasonable price. Atmosphere does lack some but the food is great.
