At first glance, the restaurant looked okay from the outside. When we walked in it kinda smelled like cleaning fluid - maybe that’s good! We were seated and looked at the menu. Only a few choices mainly Cajun shrimp, crab and oysters - no fish...More

Stopped in for the first time in years. Had a dozen oysters and the gumbo with a couple of beers. The oysters are about as good as Gulf oysters get IMO. And reasonably priced IMO at $17. The gumbo appeared to be sausage and shrimp...More

$17 for 1 dozen oysters on the half shell in Rockport seemed like price gouging to me. If I had known my date paid that much before we left the restaurant, I would have questioned their pricing.
