    Anything blackened!

    Great seafood and fresh ingredients (no, it's not inexpensive. Yes, it's worth it.) This was originally a food trailer that kept having to move around downtown. So happy they have a permanent home.

    All the guys that work there are nuts but in the best way possible. Comparing against other ATX places food wasn't cheap, but still reasonable and absolutely delicious. Shrimp po'boy!

    Grilled grouper fillet served with a spring mix salad hit the spot for a late night dinner downtown.

    The blackened crawfish tacos are fantastic.

    This place isn't cheap, but the surf is worth it (SEA BASS, so divine). Fun arcade games and shuffleboard in house, attached to a bar makes it cozy, too.

    Probably the greatest po boy I've ever had. I had the grilled crawfish po boys two days in a row. I'll never leave Austin w/o eating here!

    It's all good, large portions and consistent. I get the salads, always nice mixed greens, some red onion and fresh tomato. Can't go wrong with good meat and veg!

    Blackened tuna. Everything else is great, but the blackened tuna is still easily the best thing on the menu.

    Michael Muse · May 16, 2014
  • Ines O.

    Ahi tuna tacos are so good! Ask for the fish to be blackened to give it a spicier taste. Also get a side of jalapeño hushpuppies. Big portions.

    The best sandwiches I've ever eaten. Known for seafood, but the kick yo daddy (buffalo steak) is bomb, too.

    The crawfish taco and the catfish taco are amazing, but the blackened ahi tuna is in a league of its own

    This place has some of the best fish tacos in Austin, and the prices are incredibly reasonable. You can also opt to get the seafood in Po' Boy form, which are equally tasty.
