“Great fish tacos”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great fish dishes at great prices. The fish tacos were some of the best I have ever tried: different than the typical variety because these were in hard taco shells and had an amazing cream sauce. The red beans and rice side was fine. You order at the counter and then pickup when ready with self-serve drinks (except bottled beer). Servers basically just keep things clean. Nice patio seating too. Kids would be fine. Some chicken options but they focus on fish with a low-country/coastal feel. I will eat here again.

“Yummy fish and fun atmosphere.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The fish is fresh. The decor is fun. The outdoor patio is great for sunsets and people watching. We love the grilled tilapia, trout, or grouper. The hush puppies are worth a special order with the grilled plates. The soft drinks include fresh lemonade - unlimited refills. The ceviche is yummy. The wait on orders used to be rather slow. The last two visits have been much quicker. The price of 9.99 for the not large portioned platter/basket used to seem a little high to me. But with the card and coupons, it is an absolute steal. Very relaxing, healthy meal.

“Excellent Seafood!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is a great place to eat in downtown Arlington. We have been there many times and have never had a bad meal. My personal favorites are, grilled tilapia, mas shrimp salad, and, of course, the cold beer. Depending on the time you visit, you may have to stand in line to order for a few minutes and then go up and pick up your order when it is ready, but it is worth it. A must stop when downtown or before a ball game.

“Good food!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We always go with a buy 1 get 1 free coupon. Plenty of food and it's good. Sometimes music is kind of loud so don't go if that puts you off.
