This is an excellent seafood restaurant that is always packed with patrons. That says a lot. The restaurant is not fancy at all, so dress casual and pull your sleeves up. I had stuffed crabs the last time I went. They were delicious. The Gumbo was awesome also. It's not far from the casinos if you're here visiting. It's about... More

Had a lunch in this restaurant. Steamboat Grill was good but the crawfish wasn't that fresh. Almost half of them were dead before cooking. Size was small too. This restaurant sells boiled crawfish for 4 pounds as an order. $7.00 a pound. Steamboat is $5.99 a pound and can order smaller quantities. Seafood Palace has fresh crawfish but didn't soak... More

The Seafood Palace definitely is not a tourist Mecca. All the patrons looked like locals and the staff called several by name. This place may have some local renown but I sincerely doubt it will ever be a contender for best seafood. We arrived about 2:30 pm The service was excellent. The food was quick to arrive and hot.

Had lunch her with girlfriends and we all enjoyed the variety of seafood dishes available. I chose the fried catfish and it was superb. Fresh, friend crispy like I love and the baked potato was loaded and hot. Great price to boot..

They have about the best seafood gumbo around. Let you add your own rice. I do not like a load of rice in my gumbo. I like to add enough for taste. One of the great things about Seafood Palace.

Checkered tablecloths, bustling waitresses and great food. This is an out-of-the way seafood restaurant that has a lot to offer. Originally called the "Crab Palace" in my yesteryears, nothing about the food has grown old. Not very fancy but friendly great service. One of the few places where you still need an extra 'baby wipe' to get through your meal... More

We were told not to be scared off by the appearance of the place and were glad that we went. From the outside it really doesn't look like much, but the food is really good. The small fried shrimp was a bit skimpy on shrimp, but made up for it in taste. We enjoyed it so much for dinner that... More

A wonderful seafood house, full of locals. Fresh boiled seafood in season. Fried seafood year-round. The shire salad is one of the most generous salads I can imagine. Shrimp were very fresh. Boiled crabs were very nice as well. All-n-all, an excellent option for a traditional seafood spot.
