Yes!!! A slice of the gulf in Austin . . . – Generally speaking, this restaurant offers gulf seafood. Without downgrading other austin establishments, their oysters were impeccably fresh. Other seafood items were equally as tasty and plentiful. THis is the kind of place that could double their prices if their locale were better. Stop in, its worth it.

mixed review – Based on the prior customer reviews and the ($) rating, I was disappointed. We went Thursday, but saw no sign of "all you can eat catfish," maybe this was discontinued. The shrimp diablos ($4.75) were small, and there was no actual jalepenos - instead they were dusted with a cayenne/jalepeno seasoning. The "hot latin kisses" at El Mercado are much better. The gumbo ($4.50) was very good, as was the special, flounder covered with shrimp and crabmeat with a yummy sauce ($11.95). And the shrimp rice that comes with the steamed dishes was truly delicious. The menu was very lacking in the vegetable department - no salads, not even coleslaw. We got the Tres Leches cake for dessert ($2.95), and it was only so-so. My husband and I split everything, and I was still hungry when I left.

To die for! – I don't think I have EVER had better Gulf seafood (shrimp, oysters, blue crab, snapper, flounder) than we found last night at Pacific Star.

It's exactly the right combination of Texas Gulf-coast fried, Cajun, and South Texas Mexican, with a smidgeon of New England crab house, and it's as fresh as you can get!

The menu is straightforward - they do 10-12 things and they do them right. Prices are super affordable.

I especially recommend the Oyster and Shrimp Diablo appetizers, and the broiled shrimp skewers; but folks all around us (obviously regulars) were ordering and raving about the huachinango (broiled snapper).

The atmosphere is perfect, too, for this flavour of dining. It's small, a little bit dumpy but not dirty, loud, upbeat, intimate in a neighborhood kinda way, and the service is excellent. The emphasis on freshness and quality is very very obvious.
