We have not been to this place in over 2 -3 years, and we have always made it one of our stops to Texas, but this time, my wife and I shared the $21 Captains platter, and found the fried Seafood over breaded, and the shrimp to be small, but if you like fries, more than half the plate was fries. Where's the Seafood, we will find somewhere else to eat next time.

If you want good gumbo and great fried seafood - this is the place! Specials are always great. Everything is very fresh. We ate way too much!

Never had a bad experience here. Love the boiled crawfish when they are in season. Fried seafood always is great. Étouffée is a must try.

I'm from Lake Charles and whenever I go home, Steamboat Bill's is a must-stop! The seafood is always fresh, hot, and delicious. Try it all, you won't be disappointed.
