This place has been advertising heavily on press web sites lately, claiming to have "the freshest seafood in Katy." So we decided to try it. We were initially stunned by the spartan dining room: one very small room in a strip center, stocked with 8 well used tables and chairs. A card table with a cash register on it fronts the open kitchen, along side a cooler of canned and bottled soft drinks. This place is for eating only, not for "dining!" But the food WAS fresh, and well cooked. We started with buffalo shrimp, which we'll skip the next time. Factory breaded baby shrimp, fried and doused with hot sauce, we didn't taste the shrimp. I ordered the only non-fried item on the menu, the pan sauteed rainbow trout with dirty rice. It was very fresh, tail on, but I suspect it was deep fried rather than pan fried. In any event, it was very moist and good. Rather than the advertised topping of lump crab, it came with three large fried shrimp. Okay, I'll take that. The rest of our group ordered either fried shrimp or fried oysters. The oysters got raves from the crowd. They were large and plump and nicely breaded. The accompanying fries were frozen of the crinkled variety if that is a detail that bothers you. It doesn't me. You can order the authentic dirty rice instead. To finish, it was agreed that we must try the fried twinkies, found on the menu under the kid selections. Probably one of few places where you can get these in the Houston area, they are a winner with kids. Six orders of 2 twinkies were made while we were there. I know, because a guy I presume to be the owner shouts all orders in to the kitchen in an unnecessarily loud tone. Some sullen guys in the galley appear to agree. The owner was otherwise eager to please. All the food is served in plastic baskets lined with wax paper, and washed down with those canned drinks, or tea served in real plastic glasses. No beer or wine. No frills. Just decent, well priced fried seafood.
Pros: Fried Oysters, eager to please owner
Cons: Strip center parking in a dark area
