Bay-Seas Seafood & More

2039 Airport, 499-0529

Mon-Wed, 11am-8pm; Thu-Sat, 11am-2am

Settled in their new location for about a year now, Bay-Seas offers a wide variety of well-prepared fish dishes based on the availability of the catch. The menu details several selections each of trout, catfish, shrimp, and red snapper in portions from individual to family-sized in a variety of combinations. We sampled a very good seafood and sausage gumbo and a catfish sandwich on white bread with a side of absolutely perfect hush puppies. Based on the flavor of those choices, we'll go back to sample more entrees and try the cook's boudin. Casual atmosphere with sports on the television and jukebox with selections as inviting as the menu.
