Reviewed November 17, 2012

I know the reviews said the hours are sketchy, we went there twice but they were closed both times due to maintenance and vehicle problems. Love to try them on our next visit.

“Good seafood”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Place is pretty decent, though it's not the cleanest. The people working there aren't the brightest, yet they're friendly. If you're done deep sea fishing it's a great place to stop by for something to eat, but it's not somewhere I'd go out of my way to go.

“Port A The best on the island!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

After reading the reviews here, we decided to try the place out. I was expecting to drop by, make my purchase and hurry back to the condo and try to figure out how to make my shrimp boil.

They do carry everything here for the boils plus different varieties of fish, and sides. Their shrimp boil mixture is unbelievable. You'll throw that Old Bay in the dumpster after trying theirs!

Having only done a boil once many years ago, I needed a little refresher course. I not only learned exactly how to cook it, but also was loaned the steam pot as well. When I asked what time it was due back, she said, "Whenever we get time". Ok, now coming from the city we don't hear that often, do we?

We chatted for about half an hour about their seafood and life on the island in general. Its going to be a permanent spot on our list from now on.

Thank you Port A Seafood for your hospitality and adding to the memories of a very special family gathering.

“YUMMY”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a very hometown delight family owned and operated they had delicious fresh shrimp heads on or off. You can pick out exactly what you want and they can steam it up for you or you can borrow the stuff to go back to you place and boil it up yourself!! The son is running it and he's a sweet heart.
