We visit the Bryan area at least twice a month and try new restaurants each month. This restaurant was chosen based on Trip Advisor reviews. Lunch prices range between $7-15. While service was very prompt and our order was delivered quickly, the food was a big disappointment. The appetizer of Shrimp Diablo was either previously cooked and simply rewarmed or... More

Drove by and decided to stop on a whim, and we were so glad we did. They had inside and patio dining. The place was crowded but had plenty of seating. The servers handled big sections, but we're very attentive. The food was very good. We had red beans and rice, grilled fish tacos and blackened tilapia. The food came... More

We love to go to Shipwreck when in town because of the family owned atmosphere and always enthusiasm of the wait staff. Food is consistently excellent.

True the ramp up for a handicapped person is very challenging and the restroom more so. The food and service are spot on. Great fish offerings.

Good pub-style food and easy for lunch but this place really jumps for the after-work crowd. The evenings are crowded as well. A good spot for drinks after work and a few munchies before dinner.

You must try the Diablos with Shipwreck Sauce on the appetizer menu. Everything is delicious, but I tend to get grilled fish tacos more than anything. They have a big bar so, If you are traveling, come hang out with the locals.

Always good food and great service. For lunch I usually just have the lunch special fish basket and if I'm having dinner I usually have one of the seafood boat's

Nice waitstaff, never had a bad visit. Mostly fried seafood and raw oysters, salads are on the menu too. You can eat at the bar and there is usually friendly conversation going on all the way around. Nice place, not really for the kiddos after lunch.

We visited on Monday for the Oysters. We managed to eat 3 dozen on the half shell, which tasted really fresh. My favorite was the Oysters Giermo. OMG, they are so good. I loved the smoky grill flavor and that shipwreck sauce is addicting. I ate almost a dozen by myself. So good. My son-in-law loved the crab legs. We... More

This is a place for people, particularly young people, who like to drink beer, eat average seafood, and who like to listen to loud music. The service, while friendly, was inattentive and disorganized, and the ambiance was such that it was difficult to carry on a conversation over the blaring music. I previously ate at this restaurant a couple of... More

Opened in 2009 I believe, neighborhood bar and grill. Oysters, cajun crawdads, e'touffee, shrimp, blackened fish tacos and their own signature Shipwreck sauce. Great atmosphere and owners who are on site and friendly. We love this place and would love to write the first review if you agree to list it.
