“Chowder Up!!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Upon learning it was our first visit the server brought us some free appetizer samplers...oyster nachos which were crazy good and I don't like oysters...and three soups - clam chowder, jalapeno soup & gumby. I actually ordered a bowl of clam chowder because of that sample. It was a first for me to ever order clam chowder....I'm converted! :) My wife loved the crab cake benedict and she loved it. Great service.

“My new favorite fish restaurant!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Wow! What a find!
This location is relatively new...open about six weeks.
It's a chain, but was the first time we have eaten here.
Staff is extremely friendly and the service is top notch. Very personable! The manager repeatedly came out to check on the food and to see how we liked it.
The website listed at the top of the listing shows the menu.
Food was outrageously good.
So good we returned the following day!
It is advertised as a Creole/Cajun restaurant and their fish dishes are exceptional.
Want it more spicy? They can do that! Just ask.
Want fried trout instead of baked? They can do that!
Prices are reasonable.
Definitely recommend the shrimp and grits and the specials on the chalk board.
Have a great variety of oysters on the half shell.
And don't miss their Gumbo! VERY flavorful! Ask them to spice it up a bit...
Don't miss this find. They have a lot of locations. But I do know the Irving location was sooooo gooooood!!!
Check out my food pixs!
