“What a Disappointment”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

We decided to try this restaurant based on some other Trip Advisor reviews. It was not at all what I expected when I walked in. It's a smallish place crammed with tables. The fishing trophies and mounted specimens on the walls were interesting. I chose to try their Shrimp Cook off winning recipe and was terribly disappointed. I have a hard time believing they won any contest with this recipe. My husband tried the fish tacos and did not care for those either. The fumi salad was good. We would not eat here again and would not recommend it.

“Not the Best Place”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

This place was not very good. The food needed more flavor and the restaurant was not clean. Our tablecloths were sticky and the floor was yucky. The place also needed a major over haul. If I had to do it again, I would not have choose to eat here.

“Nice Ceviche”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

So I liked the ceviche here much better than the top rated Tex Mex place in Brownsville. But the shrimp tacos? Not so much. Glad to have eaten here though. Much better than the more expensive Sea Ranch down the road.

“Great food and value”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

Family ate here a few days ago. Everyone had different orders and was very pleased. DW does not like fish, but had fish tacos and loved them. Very reasonable prices.

Relatively small place - maybe 20 tables at most. Seems to be very popular place.

Not the most fancy place around, but some really good food and very affordable Can't wait to go back

“Okay, if you're from somewhere other than Texas”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Not that great. The mexican food isn't really good (unless you're from someplace that doesn't have good Mexican food). The fish and shrimp taste like is came off the Sysco truck. Not bad food....just not great
