“Wow!”
Reviewed 8 April 2011

Very expensive! 1/2 dozen oysters 7.95 they reeked and were brown!, 1/2 dozen jalepeno poppers 2.50 each??? Whattt? That's 15.00 bucks, they tried to charge us for a gumbo we didn't even get 7.95, 16.95 for fried shrimp that really weren't so great & and an 11.95 kids sized po boy with fries (2.95) drinks were 1.95 a piece... total was 75.00 lunch for 2 people, we could've had 2 lobster dinners for that price, not to mention the waitress had a bad attitude!! M My advice is don't even bother with that place Black Diamond off of Roddfield is much much better. Great seafood & awesome prices plus friendly enviornment:) hope this was helpful!

“We used to eat here all the time. Tonight...”
Reviewed 12 March 2010

We used to eat here all the time. Tonight our grandparents decided they wanted to treat us. They dump the food on the table, which is kind of cool.
Whrn we first arrived we asked if we got bread. They used to bring it to the table when you sat down. She brought 4 small rolls. We has three teas and ine soft drink and ordered two Cajun feast meals, which consists of shrimp, potatos, sausage, and corn on the cob. We also had an extra half pound of sausage and a gozen oysters.
When we got the bill it was $86!!!

They charged:
$19 per Cajun feast
$9 for 12 oysters
$1.95 per roll
$1.95 per drink (they refilled our drinks without asking and then charged us for each refill!!!)

They used to charge $14.95 per Cajun feast and bread was free as were refills. The bill should have been around $48. I'm still not sure how the bill ended up at almost $90.
BEWARE of the nickle and diming!!!

The shrimp were overcooked and we're not positive they gave us an extra half pound of sausage. The server was really rude and the chairs are so packed together that the servers lean over your table while you're eating to deliver food to other tables.

Do yourself a favor: if you're hungry for Cajun food,make the drive to Port Aransas and go to the Crazy Cajun!

We asked if we got bread, she brang 4 small rolls

“A terrible experience .. Never go there!”
Reviewed 14 December 2009

We had lunch today here. I had a coupon for $10.00 off of our meal. Waitress said she would just take the $10.00 off our ticket after we asked how this worked. When we were done and left our money for the ticket on the table plus a tip. We left. The waitress came running out the door after us. She said we did not pay correctly. The manager, Angie somebody treated us very badly. We just ask to explain what the charges were for and she got an attitude towards us. She said my daughter came across being pissed off which was not true and I told her NO she did not.. she actually told me she was NOT talking to me and for us to please not to come back!!!! She was very unprofessional and also called the waitress over and confronted her in front of us.. anyway, she need not worry about us or any of our friends or family ever going there again. It stinks in there anyway, the bathroom is nasty.. the food not all that great either.It was all a big mistake because the waitress gave us incorrect information.. we were not trying to cheat anyone out of anything.. the manager just had a bad attitude and came across as being a very stupid person. I do not know how she runs a business acting like she did today.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 13 November 2009

Went for lunch. Had two bowls of gumbo in small disposable Styrofoam bowls, two glasses of iced tea, a bun, and a single jalapeno appetizer. $33. I felt ripped off. And the gumbo was only mediocre. This place is probably more of a bar than a restaurant.

“good food, not so good service”
Reviewed 8 August 2009

this is more of a dive bar than a restraunt. the waitreses were more interested than talkin to the regulars than taking care of the customers. the food was upper side of good but the service and atmosphere was almost too bad.
