“Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

I guess there are a number of these restaurants around, even here in San Antonio, but this is the door we walked in. It's an order / pick-up, seat yourself and have a good time with your people place. It's a big menu! I ordered the coconut shrimp platter and swapped out the fries and slaw for rice and spinach. Mistake on the spinach, a little overcooked for a CA girl. The rice was a bit bland. BUT, the coconut shrimp and dip were excellent!. Vern ordered the Fried Oysters Platter and stuck with the slaw and fries, both of which he really liked. He also enjoyed the oysters. It's a big building! There were two rooms closed off. The decoration of the building is clever and they have a separate window for people coming in for take out. Really nice place.

“What A Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Had not gone to a Sea Island Restaurant in a very long time. I was in for a surprise at this
location. Awesome service along with great seafood and prices. Manager and workers walk around asking if everything was good and what else they can do for you along with offering tea and whatever else you may need. Took advantage of their special, 2 for $17.99, get lots of food, appetizer plus 2 entrees. Will visit this location more often.

“Lemon pepper broiled fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

I absolutely loved the Lemon pepper broiled fish. I do not have a lot of experience with seafood other than a Filet o'fish from McD's, so my review might not count too much. I'm trying to eat healthiER and this was awesome. Great place for family, casual atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. Can't wait to go again.

“sea island superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

if you want good seafood, prepared anyway you like it, then this is the place. It is fresh seafood and prepared to order. Self service so standing in line is part of it, but it is fast so not standing long...a very popular place all the time.
