"Exceeded our expectations! My husband & I went on a date here & we were blown away! Delivered beyond what you would expect for a small town! New chef Tully Wilson is outstanding! We ordered the seafood pasta, one of Chef Wilson's specials, and it was divine! Perfectly cooked jumbo shrimp swimming in a pool of Cajun Alfredo sauce, linguine & lump crab with half of a lobster tail on top...just wow! We also had the crab, spinach artichoke dip with homemade pita chips! Our server was very friendly & knowledgable! We had a delightful evening & will definitely be back anytime we are in Port Lavaca! Thanks Shellfish!"

"The food far exceeded our expectations! I ordered the South of the Rio burger (no bun) and my boyfriend had the supreme pizza. Both were DELICIOUS! The pizza crust was a pretzel-type crust and the pizza took up the entire rectangular plate. My burger was so juicy and full of flavor as well. And the fries, oh my gosh, the fries! They were AMAZING! We will definitely be back the next time we visit Port Lavaca."

"Really enjoyed everything! Excellent service, loved the pretzels, fried pickles, and traditional oysters. Wife loved the corn chowder and halibut, daughter loved the chicken sandwich and son enjoyed fried fish (kids menu). The 4 top tables are really small, but I'm not complaining. Great time!"

"This place was so delicious! From the appetizer to on tray! I had the "the best dang chicken sandwich" my goodness it was so amazing! And the coleslaw was just as equally delish!!! I would defiantly be coming back!! As for the service I will give a 10!!!"

"My family and I were traveling back home from South Padre Island and stopped at the  Shellfish.  The atmosphere was nice and so was the staff. Waitress kept drinks filled without us having to ask. I had the  Santa Fe Salmon salad and it was great! Everything was perfect,  presentation, freshness, and  flavor.  My husband had the chicken fried steak. It was a generous size portion and he said it was the best he had eaten in years! Well worth the stop! There were 5 adults eating,  appetizers and entrees, plus a couple of beers, I  spent  $100.00 plus tip. I am very happy with that."

"If you are going to dine in Port Lavaca, look no further.  Shellfish is by far the best place in town for food and beverages.  Great and diverse menu, update decor, fully stocked bar, and enough tvs for those who want to watch a game.  I had the cedar plank salmon and it was cooked perfectly with a maple glaze, and washed it down with a delicious craft beer.  I will come back!"
