We both had the grilled shrimp with coleslaw and sweet potato fries Everything was very good. especially the shrimp. We were told the place has a new owner And I could see and taste the difference. We plan on returning soon James and Kay from Port Lavaca

The oysters are amazing, and the atmosphere is awesome. Pretty place to hang out. There's lots of televisions to watch sports while you're there. Trivia night is also a lot of fun.

We stopped for lunch. The food was great. Interesting and well presented. The waiter was outstanding, and treated us like royalty. The decor is pretty interesting, nice art, and well done details everywhere. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Our first time to Port LaVaca to meet old friends from Colombia. They were reviewing their new property acquisition in Port LaVaca. We meet at Shell Fish and it was wonderful!

We finally got what they called fresh fish, grilled but the chef didn't know how to cook it. Slightly overcooked but they rest of the food made up for the overcooked fish. Thank you, the best meal we had while in Port Lavaca.

I still like the atmosphere of Shellfish and there food is good. Just their new menu is extremely limiting on food choices.
