“Limited menu but good food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This little restaurant is often overlooked because it is in a strip mall, where you would not expect to find a decent restaurant. The food is very good but service is a bit slow - it's family owned and run and is trying to get established. It's also very small, but perfect for intimate groups. The food will not disappoint!

“Small Treasure on Texas Coast”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The Old Fulton Seafood Cafe & Deli in a small strip area on Fulton Beach Road is a diamond in the rough. Overshadowed by larger restaurants in the immediate area it is easy to overlook. Don't overlook it. The sandwiches and clam chowder are a delicious and filling lunch. For dinner try the Grouper or Shrimp Vera Cruz (especially the shrimp) you can't beat shrimp in a location where the shrimpers dock within view of the restaurant. The Snapper Rockefeller is also exceptional and the Shrimp Pasta Diana is a wonderful meal, usually sufficient for two people. Hand dipped Blue Bell ice cream over homemade peach cobbler is a great finish if you have room. My wife and I live 35 minutes away and always plan for at least one meal here when we visit Fulton. They have reopened after some health issues and it is as good as before. Small and intimate.

“Another Great Surprise”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Went in at lunch time based on reviews. The exterior of the building has lots of character, and the inside was bright and clean.
We ordered the specialty sandwich and soup, the place was busy and we were not in a rush. It took a little while for our food to arrive, but it was so worth it. Very fresh and some of the best tomato soup we have ever had.

“Must Try”

We ate outside on delighful raised stools at a high round table. We could keep our dog with us. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. A bit pricey but worth every penny.

“Fabulous find!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

We came to town and looked up some new places to eat and found the reviews for this place. I loved the personal touch the owner gave to the reviews but read the comments from others. The food did not fail us we had the shrimp scampi and fish Veracruz. Both incredible. Had to try the clam chowder and would have eaten more except I knew I would run out of room! Then we split the peach cobbler oh to die for!! This is now out new favorite in town. The atmosphere is cozy on a cold rainy night and the owner is awesome. I love patronizing a family owned biz in any town but this was one if the best. A must try!
