Crawfish Shack & Oyster Bar
9500 S. I-35, 512/280-0816
The menu here is simple: Gulf seafood is boiled, fried, or prepared in authentic versions of Creole and Cajun specialties. Try the soft-shell crab po'boy.
You'll find a full range of both fried and broiled seafood in the boat formerly occupied by the Captain's Seafood & Oyster Bar.
5700 N. I-35, 512/452-1417
When the gang's hungry, take a crowd to eat in, or arrange to have them cater your next outdoor fish fry.
4705 E. Ben White, 512/443-1698
Here, start off with the sopa de mariscos – it's like the entire sea was pureed into your bowl – and then dig into the crab-nificent enchiladas.
