We had their awesome maroon salads with roasted corn added and shipwreck sauce. Hush puppies were great too! Warm black beans on the salad were an added treat! Sitting outside with great service! Super date time and yummy healthy lunch!

The title says it. Shipwreck Grill has great food and won't cost too much. The service was great. The ladies were very attentive. We went on a Monday so we got 75 cent oysters, which is cheap anywhere. The atmosphere was laid back and the decor was really nice (it's Aggieland so expect some A&M stuff). The drinks were not...

Used to be a favorite, but food quality has really gone down. Had fish tacos that were so runny that could not eat with hands - had to eat with fork and spoon. Went back 2 weeks later and had the fish basket and was more disappointed. The fish was heavily crusted with an even heavier dose of salt. I... More

First time eating fish tacos for me. Perfect for a light lunch and the margarita was good too. Service from wait staff was fast and friendly.

We visit the Bryan area at least twice a month and try new restaurants each month. This restaurant was chosen based on Trip Advisor reviews. Lunch prices range between $7-15. While service was very prompt and our order was delivered quickly, the food was a big disappointment. The appetizer of Shrimp Diablo was either previously cooked and simply rewarmed or... More

Drove by and decided to stop on a whim, and we were so glad we did. They had inside and patio dining. The place was crowded but had plenty of seating. The servers handled big sections, but we're very attentive. The food was very good. We had red beans and rice, grilled fish tacos and blackened tilapia. The food came... More

We love to go to Shipwreck when in town because of the family owned atmosphere and always enthusiasm of the wait staff. Food is consistently excellent.

True the ramp up for a handicapped person is very challenging and the restroom more so. The food and service are spot on. Great fish offerings.

Good pub-style food and easy for lunch but this place really jumps for the after-work crowd. The evenings are crowded as well. A good spot for drinks after work and a few munchies before dinner.

You must try the Diablos with Shipwreck Sauce on the appetizer menu. Everything is delicious, but I tend to get grilled fish tacos more than anything. They have a big bar so, If you are traveling, come hang out with the locals.

Description
Opened in 2009 I believe, neighborhood bar and grill. Oysters, cajun crawdads, e'touffee, shrimp, blackened fish tacos and their own signature Shipwreck sauce. Great atmosphere and owners who are on site and friendly. We love this place and would love to write the first review if you agree to list it.
