While it's true that most of what Landry's-owned restaurants serve is previously frozen fish from Sysco, there are a few things I really love here. The Cobb Salad with Crabmeat and Shrimp is very good, as are the baked and fried oysters. Enjoying these favorites...More

Enjoyed a burger and beer. Burger was huge with a gourmet bun and cooked perfectly. Beer was ice cold and delivered promptly. Husband enjoyed his fried oysters and crab bisque soup. Lovely table near the boardwalk and water. Would definitely eat here again!
