    I got the blackened crawfish Po boy and sweet potato fries. Fresh slaw, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles on bun. Divine. It isn't cheap but worth every single cent.

    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.

    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.

    The po' boys different than what you'll eat in New Orleans. No shredded iceberg lettuce here-- instead, expertly fried seafood is topped with mixed salad greens and red onion.

    Red snapper blackened fish tacos, bacon and jalapeño wrapped shrimp po boy, sweet potato frys, and jalapeño hush puppies are fabulous!! Yummehhh!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
  • Sharick C.

    Perfect blackened fish; new discovery, they don't mind if you bring in six packs or wine from the liquor store down the block

    Their Guac Boy is amazing, and so is their fish. I'd say they serve the best fish in Austin!!

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

    Huge portions of well-seared tuna, tipped with generous amounts of ranch dressing and hot sauce. Strange but amazing.

    Amazing and huge fish tacos! Two to an order, but they'll usually sell you only one for half price if it's too much food.
