“Yummy Charbroiled Shrimp!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

My hubby and I come at least once a month and we always get the chargrilled or charbroiled shrimp! Delish! Good coleslaw and delicious lemonade, too! I'm sure everything else is good, too, but I'm not wiling to give up a tasty treat that can't be beat!!

“Great Inexpensive Seafood”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

My friend and I were in San Antonio for business and were looking to spend our per diem for dinner. This restuarant was close to our hotel. We walked in not knowing what to expect. Inside we discovered this is sort of a "fast food" environment where customers walk up to the order counter and then pick up their food at the service counter when paged. We almost decided not to eat there since it wasn't full service but went ahead anyway. We were so glad we stayed!!! I ordered a seafood platter that consisted of a fried fish fillet, sea scallops, shrimp, crab cakes, french fries and cole slaw. I also ordered the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail and 12 peel and eat shrimp. Even after ordering all this, I had not spent my dinner per diem of $30.00. The food was served quickly and hot. Everything was delicious. The crab cakes where the best I've ever had!!! The only complaint I have is that Sea Island does not have any restaurants in Dallas where I live. I will definately eat there the next time I'm in San Antonio.

“One of my favorites!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I was so glad to get to eat here again on a recent hometown visit to San Antonio. I've always loved the seafood at Sea Island. They have great gumbo and I loved the newer addition (well "new" since I'd been there probably almost 10 years ago) of fish tacos. Good food, good atmosphere, great service and reasonably priced.

“Great seafood at a decent price”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This restaurant is within walking distance of the hotel I stayed at. My company has me stay at that hotel on my visits to San Antonio and I make it a point to eat there whenever I come. On a take out order, the staff was vey friendly and will make sure you are satisfied before you leave. I eat the Coconut Shrimp which is very good. Highly recommend this place.
