    Quality has been Austin's signature fishmonger since 1938, and in 2012, it underwent a major expansion. Go for oysters, Gulf shrimp, and Cajun- and Creole-influenced seafood dishes. Read more

    Absolutely loved this hole in the wall, hidden from all with the lights barely on. But inside...., waits the tastiest seafood you’ll ever have.

    Great place to purchase excellent seafood to cook at home! Also their menu has freshest seafood in Austin while keeping the recipes simple focusing on fish. They will fly in fish per request!

    Freshest Gulf oysters with horseradish, salt and lemon juice. Their deep-fried cod is excellent. Okra and fries sides are awesome.

    Sit at the bar to avoid ordering at the window. Slim wine selection but plenty of local beers. Oysters are tasty and fresh. Fried foods aren't as good though. Still a neat spot overall.

    Quality Seafood has been providing Austinites with fresh Gulf seafood for over seventy years. The shrimp tacos are some of the best in town. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Mahi tacos are great! Taco Tuesday is the the best of their weekly specials with $3.00 tacos and $2.00 all domestic drafts.

    Po boys are great. Also John, the fishmonger knows what he’s doing, trust him.

    Two dollar Tuesdays, can't beat it with $2 beer and $2 tacos. I like the blackened mahi and a corona.

    Fried shrimp basket - quite good. Turned off big time - some of the cooks behind the Oysters Bar kept eating when we sat down & still eating after we paid our bill. Unprofessional & very nasty!

    If you go with friends, get someone else to stake out a table for you-- seating is first-come, first-served.
