“Terrific fish”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Great fish. A large choice of exciting dishes. Good food and great service. Servers are very nice and stop by to see if everything is alright. Great for a couple or a large group.

“Living on reputation”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We've eaten at this particular location ever since it opened, but the quality of the food has continued to drift downward. It's not bad, but it is definitely not what it used to be.

The food has become bland--even the gumbo. On a recent visit, the campechana tasted like a watered-down shrimp cocktail. Fried oysters tend to be under-fried, leaving them raw in the middle. On the other hand, the portions are quite large, and if you're celebrating a birthday, let them know, because they'll provide an enormous dessert of your choice on the house.

Noise level is quite energetic, and service is somewhat on the slow side because the kitchen apparently has a hard time keeping up with the number of patrons.

“First time ... Can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

This place came highly recommended by some locals. Our server Rashan made this experience truly memorable. He was well versed in the menu, gave u great tips and very attentive.

I ordered the grilled lobster tails and steak ... Fantastic. My buddies ordered the sea bass diablo with crawfish and crab; they thought it was great.

We went for a late lunch so the place was pretty empty... I heard it gets quite crowded at night.

“Food and Service Standards are set here.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Some of the best seafood I have ever eaten. Bar none. Shrimp Brochettes is in the top 10 things you need to do to have a full life. The service is better than any major restaurant I have been to in years. Please don't miss this one. Shaun, you are the difference.
