I must say that since we are originally from the Gulf Coast of Texas, we are somewhat jaded when it comes to judging seafood restaurants. This place was all right but the shrimp were over-done and rather chewy.I had a platter with a piece of...More

Was convenient to our hotel so was easy to get to . Shrimp was very good and prices were reasonable. The cocktail sauce was another story!! I tried the one at our table and it tasted off so went to another table to try it...More

You might drive by this restaurant after seeing exterior. Does need coat of paint and updating as inside does. Don't let looks steer you away. Good food. Our family had fried shrimp, grilled shrimp, red fish and gumbo.Both fried and grilled shrimp were excellent, some...More

Went here based on a recommendation but could not stay. The interior was dark, didn't appear to be well cared for, our waitress acted like we were interfering with her evening, and the menu was not very inviting. There were only a couple of cars...More

This place is a hidden gem in Tyler, and that's a shame. They have the BEST grilled seafood platter of Red Snapper, Jumbo Shrimp and Scallops, with grilled veggies. Oh, they were so tender and flavorful and not buried under a ton of salt and...More

Maybe not fresh off the boat but very good. Fish is perfectly flakey and grilled is as good as fried. Quality slips occasionally but seems to be the product not the cook - fish slices are a little thin at times. As good if not...More

When I asked about a place close to the hotel to eat, I was told about this place. While it doesn't look great from the outside, the inside isn't as bad. Could use a little updating, but, I've seen worse. The waitress was friendly &...More
