    Went there 2 weeks ago for dinner on Monday night. I think it was half off crawfish, they sell it boiled by the pound.

    Oh my. Good stuff.

    I went there last Tuesday for dinner and the had $2 any fish taco, $2 draft beers, and crawfish for $4 a pound. Needless to say it was a great dinner. The blackened catfish tacos I had were amazing.

    The place seems like a locals dive. Not sure if you go there to see people or to be seen...

    But their crawfish were excellent. They get their shipments on Mondays, I believe. They had fresh crawfish with some great spices and they had fresh oysters and some great peel and eat shrimp.

    Definitely NOT for "being seen".

    Definitely FOR eating good, cheap food.

    I must have driven by that place a million times, but never stopped. Guess I need to try it.

    I thought it was just a fish market. I didn't realize they had a restaurant.

    I talked to some employees last week and they said they did a huge interior renovation 1.5 years ago to make the restaurant a lot nicer.

    yes, that place used to be a real **** hole. stopped by earlier this year to pick up some mudbugs for a boil and was blown away at home nice and well-stocked with spices they were.

    had lunch today...enjoyed it. Inside is so much nicer than the exterior leads on. Cool spot for a beer and some scrimps.

    My dad's been buying seafood in there for many years.

    I took him in there for a bite a few weeks back. I thought it was really good, and inexpensive, too. [​IMG]

    The place looks better than it used to inside and out.

    I tend to like to like the grilled items better than the fried food. Thier best deal is thier daily special. Often they offer sea scallops, salmon, or swordfish for under $10.

    You get the best service at the bar. Definately an Old Austin place.

    Used to always shop at the market. They have an email club (or at least used to) with weekly discounts. Recommended.

    Stopped there after the game Sat. Grilled shrimp were excellent. Atmosphere is just perfect for my taste, in semi dive. I'm one who has driven by for decades, but that was my first stop. Always thought it was retail not restaurant.
