“Yuk!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I don't know what else to say, but it is not the kind of seafood we are used to! Not sure what the stuffed crab was made from? yuk!

“Great fried shrimp”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We go there every time we pass through Port Lavaca at meal time to enjoy their great fried shrimp. It is a working class place that is always crowded at mealtime, but the shrimp are always great. The atmosphere may not be what everyone wants in a dining experience, the service may not blow you away, but if you like fried shrimp this plac is hard to beat.

“bayside seafood”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

shared an alligator appetizer with peanut sauce (excellent!) and a jumbo shrimp plate (should've ordered fewer shrimp because jumbo means huge!!) Restaurant is not on the water to give our dining experience a coastal flavor, but the food was excellent.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon around 3pm. Only 4 other guests were there. It was down the street from the Walmart where we were heading afterwards, so thought we'd give it a try. Walking in it looks like it use to be a Chinese restaurant. It's definitely old and could use a remodel, but wasn't disgusting. Had a few beers and some appetizers: wings and calamari and 2 side salads. The salads were a joke with barely anything in them, but the calamari was edible with a tasty and spicy peanut sauce and the wings were better than expected. Service was ok too. Nothing to get excited about but no reason to avoid either. May return to try something different there if in the area again, being that there aren't that many restaurants to try in the area anyways.

“Rude and awful food”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

We sent our meal back twice as the cat fish was not done. I got mine back with a cold potato. we offered to pay for the tea and salad but were told we owed the entire bill. we ate there once a week. I told the rude Chinese dude that it would cost him a lot more in the long run but he said "pay anyway". Won't go back.
