The fried oysters were delicate, delectable and bursting with flavor. Shrimp and both fried fish and broiled fish amazing. We also odered fried gator which is the best we have ever had. Very clean with great service. The French fries were seasoned to perfection.

When I walked in seems like every table had gigantic mounds of either fried crabs or steamed crabs. Felt kind of silly ordering gumbo and a fried shrimp poorboy. Gumbo was good but shrimp poorboy was a bit disappointing. Lots of shrimp but they were not butterflied. You could see the intestinal vein as they had not been deveined or... More

This is a great place for good seafood whether dining in or on the go it's a great choice. I've heard the crabs on a Friday night are the bomb too.

Don't expect white table cloths and linen napkins when you go to Seafood Palace. What you get is delicious crab, great crawfish (in season) and some of the best gumbo in town. Say hello to Johnny when you go.

On whim, we went in hunt for boiled crabs near the Gulf Coast. Finding really good boiled crabs is hard, many places pass off light-weight, bland, and small crabs charging a premium price. This place has large male crabs, seasoned with a Louisiana crab boil. These were the best boiled crabs I have ever had! The wait staff was very... More

We chose Seafood Palace because of a Trip Advisor recommendation. We arrived a few minutes before 5:00 and were surprised to see that by 5:30 it was packed. The shrimp and crab gumbo was excellent. I had the fried shrimp and catfish. It was good, but not the best I've had. The staff is very friendly and from the looks... More

Formerly the Crab Palace on Enterprise Blvd, this restaurant is still the place to go! Boiled crabs, crawfish (in season), shrimp; gumbos, and all sorts of fried and grilled seafood are on the menu, and the food is wonderful. The seafood gumbo is great, and do try it with potato salad instead of rice. Don't judge until you try it!

Thank Charli M
