I have had lunch here several times and dinner once. The lunch menu is extensive with daily specials. The shrimp Po Boy is my favorite -( half with a cup of gumbo is enough for me). One can't go wrong with the Fish & chips. The Jambalaya & shrimp tacos are also favorites of some of my fellow diners. Of... More

I am originally from Omaha, however I met my husband while attending college in Louisiana and he is as crazy Cajun as they come. All the food was absolutely fresh and amazing, but the piece d'resistance was the fried shrimp poyboy with the muffuletta tapenade, magnifique!!!! Next time I'm going to add tomato slices and pickles on it, but as... More

We stopped here twice on our recent midwest travels. Found this place last summer. Food soooo yummy! We had the appetizer platter with oysters, shrimp, cat fish and calamari. We also shared a PoBoy on one visit and the fish tacos on the second visit. We would eat them all again and certainly will! I think we also polished off... More

Had the tuna poke bowl. Outstanding. Great flavor and texture for the tuna. Everything with it was awesome also. Double the tuna for the extra few dollars, well worth it. Friendly service and a nice quaint location.

Why do I have to travel to a state that is 1800 miles from the atlantic ocean to have one of the best seafood experiences in quite some time. We ate oysters varieties from all over. I came here very skeptical but left a believer. I came back 2 times during a 4 day stay here in Omaha. Come early... More

This is a great seafood restaurant that we went to for Lunch while in Omaha for work. Pricing was fair considering you were getting seafood. It has a "working man" vibe to the place, but it was truly excellent!!! Some of the best Walleye I have ever had!

They served probably the best AHI sandwich I have ever had. You would not think that you would have such an awesome selection in Omaha but think again. If you are looking to have some fish and especially AHI then this is your place. We also had the appetizer and it too was just plain delicious. Server was Palmer and... More

They have a great Happy Hour (3 - 6 PM) beer is $1.00 off & half Price apps & $.99 oysters. Well worth the stop if you like cheap fresh seafood. It is a little crowded a lot of the time.

This place is a dive but the good will knock your socks off. Go. Drink. Eat! You will not regret! The peel and eat shrimp are on top of fresh and delightful. Oysters must be tried as well. Bring an appetite.
