I was surprised by the decor. Very relaxed. My wife and I shared their signature meal that is boiled together with Cajun spices. Really good corn, potatoes, blue crab, shrimp all dumped onto the butcher paper on your table. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Had I not previously read reviews, this doesn't look like a place I would have gone... More

Some of the shrimp was mushy. We had group of 8 and several in our group had mushy shrimp in the mix of potato, corn, crab, shrimp. Also corn was a little to spicy. Service was good, Margaritas were Good. Atmosphere was as expected, rustic. Might try it one more time.

Near the harbor, this place offers various combo meals made up of crab, shrimp, and sausage. They put the food in the middle of the table, and everyone shares. It's loud, with kids hammering crab legs, but everyone has a fun time. The kids enjoyed it, so the grown ups did too.

Have eaten here before and been very happy but today shrimp were mushy (overcooked?) and one of the crabs smelled funny when cracked open and waitress tried to tell us that was normal. Corn was frozen on cob and mushy and sausage you can get at any grocery store. Boudin was spicy and very tasty. Only saving grace of disappointing... More

A quaint place kind of ran down. The service was good. For a Cajun place the food was not spiced. The shrimp was good. The dung. crab was cooked frozen and reheated for service not great just ok. The sausage tasted like Earl Campbell hot links. Would not recommend this place.

Your choice of a variety of ingredients are all thrown in a pot and boiled with Cajun seasonings. The food is then dumped on the table and it becomes finger food. It's a rather unique and fun experience. Because my husband does not tolerate spicy food, they tried to accommodate by rinsing the food before serving. It was still too... More

I didn't have any idea what to expect, but let me say that this is an experience to remember, fun, fun and great for if your craving all types of seafood. I got the small bucket and mallot, how fun is that? Beer is so cold and that's great on a hot Texas day or evening. I can't wait to... More
