Went here based on a recommendation but could not stay. The interior was dark, didn't appear to be well cared for, our waitress acted like we were interfering with her evening, and the menu was not very inviting. There were only a couple of cars in the parking lot so that should have told us something about the place.

Occasionally you run across a restaurant that takes a second, third, forth, ok I eat here when I'm in town. For the past 4 years I have been doing business in Tyler and I'm never disappointed with the food or service. The portions are generous and very well prepared. The grilled and fried offerings are about the freshest you could... More

When we stopped here, we were not particularly hungry, BUT WHEN THE PLATES CAME, WE GOT HUNGRY FAST! We ordered different meals and then shared with one another. The taste is VERY GOOD. If you are in the area, take a detour and eat here. you will be glad you did.

We ordered catfish and shrimp. It was hot when it was delivered, but neither had any flavor. We were told it was real catfish but didn't taste anything like it. The only good thing we can say is the bathrooms were clean. We won't be back.

This place is a hidden gem in Tyler, and that's a shame. They have the BEST grilled seafood platter of Red Snapper, Jumbo Shrimp and Scallops, with grilled veggies. Oh, they were so tender and flavorful and not buried under a ton of salt and seasonings. My husband tried the fried red snapper and he liked it too, but he... More

Maybe not fresh off the boat but very good. Fish is perfectly flakey and grilled is as good as fried. Quality slips occasionally but seems to be the product not the cook - fish slices are a little thin at times. As good if not better than the other seafood in town and prices and quantity are much better. Only... More

When I asked about a place close to the hotel to eat, I was told about this place. While it doesn't look great from the outside, the inside isn't as bad. Could use a little updating, but, I've seen worse. The waitress was friendly & the place appeared clean. Both my grandson & I ordered the fried shrimp. It was... More

No one wanted to drive far to go eat our last night so we stopped here. The food was average I thought the shrimp had a little too much breading but the burgers were good size. The price was good.

The lunch specials are a good value. They make their own tartar sauce and it is very good. Even the waiters don't know the secret recipe.

The price is good the food is good as well. The staff is not too friendly. The location is on highway 69 and the loop. Tyler texas. I've had the shrimp. Nice texture. Had the garden salad and there is not much to brag about. It was a good businessman stop. Talk shop and enjoy the conversation.
