The Best Fried Seafood in HOUSTON!!!!!!!! – If you want the best fried seafood, this is the place to go. Cute and cozy. You can order it fried hard and seasoned. Try them. I promise you will be back over and over.

The original shrimp boat-shaped restaurant since 1969 for classic fried Gulf Coast seafood. – With locations scattered throughout the city, these fried seafood restaurants still sport their signature kitschy shrimp boat dining rooms. The décor is decidedly Gulf Coast casual with beer signs and other "life on the Bayou" paraphernalia. Though the menu is heavy on the fried fare, freshwater catfish and whole Gulf flounder fried with cornmeal crust are all worthy of a cholesterol splurge (as are the fries and hushpuppies). The raw oysters are a standard order here as are po-boys and cold boiled shrimp. Boisterous bar area.

Best Fried Shrimp in Town – When we have a hankerin' for fried shrimp, we make the pilgrimmage to Cap'n Benny's. Order yours seasoned, and see what we mean.
