Today, 7-19-16, on our way home from South Padre Island, we stopped at Sea Island on Rector St. for lunch. It was about 2 pm and they still had a good crowd. We had Lunch B which has a large fish fillet and 6 shrimps plus 2 sides, what a meal! My wife and I enjoyed it as always and... More

Have been here for dinner and lunch. For dinner we ordered the oysters on the half shell and the ceviche. Very fresh. The colossal shrimp and oysters were wonderful. For lunch we had the lunch special of fried shrimp and fish. I wasn't as pleased with the fish. It was a bit dry for my liking. I am planning to... More

We came here after my cousin's army retirement ceremony at his suggestion. We were unsure at first but then amazed at first taste! The fish lunch special was great. I got an extra piece of fish thinking I would need it because I was sharing with my 2 yr old but he would not eat. Along with sides I could... More

We eat here often when we are in the city. It's always fresh tasting and never a long wait for your food. There's a decent menu and grilled seafood if you don't want battered/fried. You place your order, take a "buzzer" and wait till it sounds. Then you retrieve your meal. No fancy stuff here.

Not so great for those on a diet, but delicious food. I tried a shrimp platter that came with grilled shrimp (had to have something healthy!), fried shrimp and coconut shrimp. They included a yummy sauce for the coconut shrimp. The tarter sauce was okay, I like it with sweet relish, it was dill. The fries and coleslaw were okay.... More

My wife enjoys the rainbow trout, == Broiled ===, hard to beat and great taste. Their cold green bean salad is great. Good staff and management walks around to make sure everything is ok. I order fried fish ( a tradition ), Good decent prices. Not a rip-off.

Been going to these local restaurants for years, great fried seafood although grilled shrimp good also. Take out of town guests here when we're in the mood for seafood but don't want Papadeaux prices. These places are always busy so don't "fix" anything except I would like real butter with the baked potato please, I hate margarine. That's my only... More

Good seafood at a very reasonable price. We stop by here almost everytime we are in town. I really like their crunchy fish fillets for $8.99 and my wife got the Senior Grill Shrimp platter for $7.99 and a cup of Shrimp gumbo for $3.99. All the food was served hot and was delicious.

We have been going to this seafood restaurant for many years. Even though we no longer live in SA, we try and get to Sea Island every time we go back. The food is always fresh and the taste is fantastic. The restaurant itself is old, but it is clean and the service and food are excellend.

We had a fried oyster meal that came with many oysters. Everybody at the table loved their food, the service was good and we didn't have to wait too long.
