Talk about leaving a lasting impression. Sea Island Shrimp House is consistently recognized as a hometown favorite in San Antonio — and has been since 1965. In fact, they’ve been voted “Best Restaurant” for seafood in the San Antonio Express-News Readers Choice every year since the poll began!
Today all six locations spread throughout the city remain family owned and operated, maintaining the tradition of serving the highest quality ingredients at an affordable price.
Current CEO, Barclay Anthony, sat down with Goodtaste.tv to share some of their time-honored recipes, many of which are on special during Lent this year.
Sea Island is known locally for its fried shrimp, but there’s a lot more here to reel in. Juicy steaks, hamburgers, grilled chicken and even their famous Key Lime Pie for starters.
This scratch-cook kitchen thrives off variety. Here are several menu items that have helped keep Sea Island’s culinary bragging rights intact…
Lemon Pepper Fish & Shrimp
