Delicious seafood for the fish lover! Hamburgers anyone? You'll love their gigantic burgers -- one stands about 6 inches tall -- no exaggeration!

We had a great lunch on 1/08/2014. The waitress Ashley, also was very good, great menu, had a lot of choices, but Ashley told us of the specials, sure glad we took her up on them. My wife had Redfish Ponchitrain, was the best. I had Shrimp Feast, was it great. After all that we still had a little run left, Ashley said that Chef, Ken Foster, had a special dissert, Italian Cannolis, we had this before, but not like this order, the best ever. If you are near Rockport this is a must stop

We were greeted by the owner, JD to be setted. Form handshake and a welcome. Our waitress Amanda was awesome and so friendly. The food was exceptional!!!! Had the Special Shrimp Platter with sides of beans/bacon and sweet potatoe fries. Everything on the platter was to die for.
Slit it as so large. Every kind of shrimp was perfect and the sides were excellent. Loved could bring our own champaign. After eating in both Florida and Texas Gulf, our favorite. Do not miss this place!!!!!

Clean and comfortable with waitstaff that redefine service with a smile. Combine that with fried fish and oysters and grilled shrimp done to the exact second of perfection and you have a memorable evening meal. Setups for BYOB are provided cheerfully. Not in the center of town, but worth the tiny bit of an easy drive as evidenced by the full parking lot.

It would be catastrophic if you died before eating this appetizer. One avocado liberally (not in the political sense) stuffed with blue crab and deep fried in funnel cake batter. But wait - then there is more crab placed on top and in the garnish. This is incredible - we had to go back and get a second one a few days later.

I would also vouch for the following as being excellent: Crab Stuffed Flounder (one of the specialties); the stuffed redfish (I can't remember the actual name - it is another specialty); and the Gumbo.

The service was also great: friendly servers and quick service.

If you are concerned with "ambiance" then read another review as your's truly cares only about quality. However the conundrum of quantity versus quality does not exist here as I engaged in a totally gluttony fest of great food in large portion.

Sure, its a bit expensive but absolutely worth it.
