My wife had the fried fish sandwich and I had the fried shrimp sandwich and they were amazing. They are served on fresh sour dough bread and aioli dressing with fresh lettuce. This is a must try place for seafood, atmosphere, and great wait staff.

Not on the tourist path and I’m glad! Flounder was delicious! Oysters were some of the best gulf oysters I’ve ever had. Staff was great! Price was beyond reasonable.

I went here with a friend who loves the place. Went for lunch on a Saturday. We had to wait a little bit for a table, then for a server, which was the worst part. The server ignored us for a while, but once noticed...More

Food was good. I had a burger, we also had grilled fish and shrimp. Service was slow. Outside atmosphere more relaxed/vacation.

We eat here all the time. Why? Because it's the best seafood in corpus. The house fish is flounder and delicious no matter which way you order. The house specials are always hard to choose because it's all so delicious! Daily drink specials, homemade sauces...More
