Foursquare Tips

  • If there's a long wait, sit at the bar and order some beer and appetizers, and watch sports while you wait!
  • The long lines are worth the wait. Crab, lobster, crawfish, or shrimp & your choice of special sauce: Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper, Rajun Cajun, or my favorite the Whole She-Bang (combo of all 3).
  • A quit experience, everyone visiting LA should try it. Definitely I will go there again and again.
  • 1 pound of lemon pepper & catfish basket both mild
  • Stingy with the sauce/seasoning. Garden Grove locations are better!
  • The whole Shebang is the only way to go, shrimp, crawfish, crab or whatever. Get to have the fried catfish too.
  • The food is good but each time the amount of food in the 1lb bag seems to become less and less. The wait staff is horrible. They forget about their tables.
  • You choose seafood, boiled with a choice of three flavors - supersaturated garlic butter, lemon pepper, or a fiery Cajunesque seasoning - or, more likely, a mixture of all three.
  • Amazing food. Great shrimp, corn on the cob, fried fish, french fries.... Well everything was delicious.
  • Some great food and some nice asian tail. ;)
  • If it's your first time, order 1/2lbs amounts of shrimp as it is the only item that can be ordered in that quantity. This allows you to taste more flavor & spiciness level combinations for your $$$.
  • best seafood place in So. Cal...bring soy sauce if you like to mix your rice with lemon and butter...mmm~
  • Take out ONLY (as of 9/09/26)
