The menu claims all meals are cooked to order, not true. This time my grilled shrimp were luke warm and tough, indicating they had sat for a while after being cooked. Likewise with the hush puppies which were excellent last time. This time they were old. The cole slaw was still excellent, next time I'll get it as another side,... More

Wonderful, marvelous, outstanding, I could go on and on. The gumbo is as good as you will ever have. The seafood platter has a lot of everything. All the seafood is fresh from the coast. Shrimp is big and tasty. Popcorn shrimp and clam strips full of flavor. Service was great. We arrived at 4 and by the time we... More

This place has the best fried oysters. I can't even go to the gulf and find oysters this good. Their tartar sauce is out of this world. I'm in love with their seafood platter.

Yes, you have to go down a winding, bumpy road through the fisherman's resort to get to the restaurant, Lash's. We had to wait about 1/2 hour and the ac wasn't reaching the waiting room. We tried the chairs outside but they're under an ac vent, so inside was better. The ac was reaching the dining room, it was still... More

They bring on fresh shrimp a few times every week. Gumbo is great and orsters are good, They also have a store north of the damn to buy fresh shrimp gumbo and they steam your shrimp for free.

Very out of the way, hidden between a trailer park and creek, but well worth the search. Fried oysters freshest and best I've had in a long time. Blue cheese salad dressing is the best! Very quick service, but I understand that there can be a long wait if you aren't there by 5 pm.

We have eaten at Lash's several times. The food is consistently good! The seafood gumbo and fried shrimp are the best! Thursday night is "all you can eat" frog legs. The fried frog legs are crispy fried and very moist. Go early. They open at 4:00 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We arrived at 4:15 one Thursday afternoon and there... More

This restaurant is located on the Tennessee River on the back side of a trailer park adjacent to Wheeler Dam. The restaurant was very crowded but fortunately our wait was only 20-25 minutes. Our server took our order quickly and brought my seafood gumbo out right away. The gumbo one of their specialities was excellent loaded with whole shrimp and... More
