The shrimp special at lunch is cheap, very good and filling. Also, fish basket highly recommended. A bit small, only a few tables, but that adds to its' appeal.

This was my first visit to this simple storefront fresh fish market that also operates a small cafe onsite. The menu and seating are limited but the food quality and friendly service are very good, so plan to eat before or after peak meal times or you may have to wait for a table. Seafood entrees are accompanied by french... More

It's a small place with just a few tables. Great tasting fried seafood for a good price. Expect to wait (it's not fast seafood) and often times tables may not be available to sit right away. Food is worth the wait or good for take out.

This restaurant has the best value for money seafood in Houston. It is a small facility with about 6 tables for 4 inside and maybe 3 tables for 4 outside. The catfish filets are delicious. Shrimp and oysters are also great. Additionally, they have fresh fish for taking home to cook on your own. Very reasonable prices and I have... More

Some friends and I had to head into town today, preparing for a trip to Brazil next year. Fairly close to my old work stomping grounds, I had to share this place with my fishing buddies. This place is tiny. It can probably seat maybe 15 people. We got there when they opened and the place was virtually empty. We... More

For years this has been a favorite of mine. Its perfect for a quick lunch stop. The place is not fancy just dinnette tables but the fried fish is delicious! It just melts in your mouth. My favorite is fried catfish (very hard to find in Houton) but you can order other kinds of fried fish too like shrimp and... More

Whenever I come to Houston, I had to go here. The fried catfishs and oysters are the best that I had tasted. They preferred payment to be in cash as they are a small business, and they had to pay 2-3% fee when payment is made using plastic. Very small, and they also sell fresh uncooked seafood. They are closed... More

I have to give a rating of 5 here because this restaurant offers excellent fried seafood at extremely low prices. The most expensive item on the menu consists of 3 fish, 3 shrimp and 3 oysters with slaw and fries and a canned drink for $9.49 before tax!!! And the food is really good. Everything else on the menu is... More

Great place for fresh seafood. The prices are great too. They have a variety of fresh fish to choose from. The shrimp is available in several sizes. You can get it shelled or not as suits your needs. They have crab and oysters too. You can get everything you need for a fabulous seafood gumbo here! Very friendly service. Casual... More
