“Family type Restaurant”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I guess growing up in Florida there are better places to get your seafood than Joes Crab Shack and Red Lobster in the Austin area. This isn't it. If you like frozen seafood recooked and served on a wooden picnic table then this is the place for you. I think it would be great with small children, but for the average couple that wants a little more in food and atmosphere go for to Pappadeaux's.

“fun, great service”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I can't complain about their service (regardless of the server it is always good).
It is a fun place to get crabs! My favorite plates are: the crab nachos and the bucket of dungeness crab steamed. They have the most crab meat of all their different kinds of crabs.
Their bartenders know about a lot of drinks that are not Texas drinks, but know about drink in coastal areas and the Caribbean, which is rare to find in Central Texas.
It has a very fun vibe and the servers dance around on a frequent basis.
It gives you the ambience of a fun place near the beach. Good for families with kids, for friends and couples. You see people of all ages there. It is also a good place to eat late at night in Round Rock.
As I said, a great place to get crabs.

“Shrimp and More Shrimp”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love shrimp, but I hardly ever get to eat it. My family loves mexican food. But when I do get to eat shrimp and it's good, I truly enjoy it. I love all of their varieties.
