This is a local hangout for the morbidly obese. The portions are hugh and everything on the menu is fried to broiled in grease. If you are just looking for a high calorie pig out of fried frozen shrimp or fish - you will like this place. It's cheap that's about all that can be said.

This place has been closed for several months. It was a huge place with a lot of fried food. Building is for sale.

I used to be good. But recently it has become very inconsistent, the service is slow and bad. What ever issues the restaurant is experiencing it is reflected in the service. Too bad I used to really like this place.

A good place to go for plentiful servings of seafood at a decent price and the location is pure "back-in-the-brush-Texas style, which is neat. We've not had bad meals here although we've found better seafood restaurants around Rockport. Still, this would be a good place to go if you are ready for some fried seafood, a cool beer and local atmosphere.

This place is famous for those that know about it. I always believed it was in Rockport but listed as Aransas Pass. You do have to drive through Aransas Pass town to get to it. Ask local directions or use your GPS. It is a big place! Their menu is big too. Just about every lip smaking great Seafood you might want. Local fish, shell fish, shrimp and the lot. Big plates and very good food. Fried, broiled, boiled, and you name it. Good bar drinks and fast friendly wait staff. This place is the best in Sea food in the whole area. Always fresh and hot and delicious. I live 150 miles from this place. I would almost drive down there just for a Day Trip just to eat there.
