This location is the one we visit the most. We are really never disappointed but like another reviewer mentioned some items vary from visit to visit. We noticed the grilled lemon pepper fish had a different texture the last time we were there Almost like a light batter but it wasn't bad. The service there is great and this last time the assistant manager was going from table to table. He got us refills and even picked up our order. Pretty awesome since other manager drive bys at other restaurants are just to ask how the food tastes and that's it! There is always a decent crowd there and a small playground for the kids outside. They have to go orders and outside dining too.

Not a restaurant to go to if you want good seafood!!! The shrimp cocktail was awful..8 limp, small shrimps. The coconut shrimp were OK, however the pineapple dip was too sweet and tasted like from a can. The gumbo tasted like canned mushroom soup. Not a great dining experience/

The manager Judy is always welcoming and so is her staff. The food is cooked well everytime. We go here every Saturday after my boy's swim class and relax outside. Thank you!

cheapest , fastest and freshest seafood you could have in South Texas.
flavor is good, shrimp are pretty good size, cods and salmon is awesome even the trout. I eat here at least once a month and it never ever gets old. Breading on the fried seafood has lots of flavor, and the steamed spinach is to die for.

This is a chain of restaurants around San Antonio. A customer goes to a counter, orders a meal, and pays for it. He is given a pager and, after finding a table, goes to another counter to pick up his food when the pager lights up. There is a variety of seafood on the menu and the lemon pepper grilled fish filet is one of their orginal dishes and my favorite. I have also had shrimp and scallops at this restaurant. Both the quality of food and prices are great.
