“Hot and Spicey”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Fun place - a little noisy at times but the food was excellent. Always crowded but they do a good job of seating everyone as fast as they can, and then they didn't rush us to eat.

The food and service were great! A little loud that made talking difficult but otherwise a good time

“Great Lump Crab & Spinach Dip”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant had so many great meals that I returned to eat there every day during my stay in Austin. The SWAMP THING was an excellent drink.

“Hopping venue with New Orleans style seafood”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Right up front -- ask about their specials. We found out afterwards that the gal down the bar from us was having a great crab claw special that wasn't on the menu -- the kind of thing you can only get if you ask for it. The seafood gumbo was pretty good -- lots of bits of seafood and some large shrimp. The duo oysters were wonderful. Huge, baked with two different toppings and delish! The fried crawfish platter also very good -- if you liked fried. Skip the etouffee -- I didn't eat it, but it didn't look as good or as big a portion as the fried crawfish -- and it's a bit overpriced.

This place gets a large college crowd; Had numerous beers on tap and does a big cocktail/appetizer business. If you don't mind loud and fun or a long wait for a table (we lucked out and got a seat at the bar right away) then come here for your seafood craving while in Austin!
