I have been eyeballing this place for years and finally managed to make it in for lunch. The parking lot was filling up fast at 11:15 am, good sign! The waitress was attentive and happy, and I ordered Crawfish etoufee on her reccomendation. It was excellent and came with 6 butterflied shrimp. These were crunchy and delicious! A local lunch...

The seafood and service are not good. Hadn't been in a while so decided to try it again. I was just as disappointed.

You can always count of delicious seafood at this place. My husband always orders the snapper and declares it's the best he's ever had...(and big portions too.) Passing thru' Huntsville the other afternoon we stopped in and discovered it was "Happy Hour"! 1/2 price appetizers and $2.50 margaritas!! The fried calamari was great and my entree was fried shrimp and... More

Sign outside said fried shrimp and fish 7.99 went inside and was told special during week only. Salad soaking in water shrimp good but only average not large place was empty at noon on Saturday should have been my first clue. This place was good 20 years ago but needs to up their game

I don't know whether it's the food or the ambience that we keep going back for. The fish and shrimp is outstanding. The coleslaw is excellent. The gumbo is a bit too spicy but has a wonderful flavor. My complaint is spending $5.25 for a cup of seafood gumbo and getting one shrimp and one oyster. The rest was rice... More

30 minutes before arrival, called in for reservations for party of 12. The tables were set and ready for us. We enjoyed our meal. Even those who are allergic to seafood enjoyed their meals.

While traveling, we stumbled upon this great seafood place and were very pleased. The food was excellent, the service terrific and the prices were really low for the quality and quantity received. The grilled snapper with shrimp etouffee was superb, the grilled shrimp delightful, and the walnut rice... don't fail to get the walnut rice, was exceptional. Oh, the pecan... More

I attend classes at Sam Houston State University and eat here regularly. I always order the platter with fried shrimp, catfish, and oysters.There is an art to properly frying seafood and they have it down perfectly. I tell them to hold the fried potatoes and add a bowl of their seafood gumbo. Everything is delicious. The gumbo is perfect. The... More

Bob Luby's is a chain that specializes in fresh seafood and you will get it here. Some dishes are better than others, however, and the fried food is truly greasy. I didn't ask whether the tilapia I wanted was fried because it didn't signal in any way that it was and I regret it. It was fried, and super greasy.... More
