Let me start by saying we were very excited to try this place out. My husband ordered fish tacos and I ordered the endless shrimp & fish for $20. We were greeted at the table with hush puppies and that was nice. My husband asked the waiter if he could have one fish and one shrimp taco and was told the kitchen was too busy to make a special order. Once our order was taken I went off to the salad bar. For such a large place the salad bar was so small and right in front of the kitchen and next to the bar. Needless to say it was packed. The spacing between tables are narrow and very hard to move about or even get back to your own chair if the table next to you is occupied, Once we received our food, both of use were not amused. The shrimp looked like it was fried in KFC original recipe batter and greasy as ever. I took a napkin to it ASAP! FYI: if you ask for more endless shrimp or fish, you have to flag down a girl walking around handing it out. Good luck finding her. The fish looked and tasted pretty good, But our side (fries, okra, sweet potatoes fries, and onion rings) were over cooked and looked as if they were sitting under a warmer waiting for the next order to be made. Overall we were not happy with our experience and will not be returning. I hope other have a better experience than we did.

18th Street Fishing Pier
I have had the best 6 weeks of pier fishing in my life. I'm 52 yrs. old and I have fished since childhood. However, recently moving to Texas City, I found 18th street pier. Wow, I have caught the fish. I believe the flooring is oyster bedding. Due to all the hang ups it can be frustrating. But, you can just let out line and swing your pole from left to right or vice versa. Anyhow, examples of the last few weeks include several red fish, black drums, sea trout, & golden croaker. Yes, the pier needs some renovation but it's still a wonderful spot. Oh, also make sure you use frozen or dead bait. Good Luck!!!

Food is excellent. Service is TERRIBLE! The older black guy who waited on us told us not to come on weekends cause the kitchen is backed up. He took our drink order 30 minutes after we were seated. We were just wanting to kick back on the back porch and relax but had to wait 35 minutes for a beer. After we finished the first beer, we just had to drink water cause it took another 20 minutes to bring another beer. By that time, we were done with this place. This was our 2nd time to visit with not so great service. We will not be back....

Best fried oysters in the area.Food is good, service and atmosphere not so much.In the summer, the rest room smells like hell.Every seen a 16-year old with a chest augmentation? Want to meet her mom?Want to get into a fight with a local drunk on disability?Bring cash and your own straws because the place doesn't take debit cards; you drink straight from the glass the last person did.If you really want to get crazy, take the party over to Wayno's and ride the whale.

Just a moment...
