Ate there for our 52 anniversary, with some friends. I always have the 10 crab balls and my wife get the fish and shrimp. Then we share, they have the best fish seasoning we ever tasted. Just a hint of spice and cooked to perfection. We eat there every time we get to Galveston.

We went on a Sunday afternoon. There was a line, but it went fast and was WELL worth the small wait. Seafood was absolutely delicious. Shrimp was crispy and probably the best I had on the island in the 6 days we were there. It's a very casual atmosphere and service is great! We will make this a regular on our future visits for sure!

Coming in from the beach at night and just needed a meal before we headed back to hotel. These guys are always busy and it takes awhile to get your food but our shrimp po'boys were really good. Soft bread and juicy shrimp, surprisingly tasty for such a casual restaurant at the end of the seawall. Didn't have sweet tea so that's a bit of a letdown but otherwise it was just right. The waitstaff were doing a great job given how busy they were. Menu is fairly varied although most of the dishes are fried, but we would definitely eat here again.

This little place offers a wide variety of seafood. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the inside is so cute and inviting. We had the seafood platter grilled and it was delicious. Place was clean and the help was great. The prices were not bad at all for seafood. Highly recommend!

This place is nice surprised. It is extremely causal. They did the cajun right. We ordered a two pounds blue crabs and they were fresh and delicious.

Buy if you are in a hurry, this place would not be the right place. The lines were long in ordering food and we waited for more than half hour for the food to come even though it wasn't a busy Friday night.
