Notice a trend in your comments. Fried. Excellent seafood doesn't need to be fried. Isn't supposed to be fried. Or breaded. If you made the trek to NB, do yourself and your seafood yearnings a favor and go to Reel Seafood and Grill.

I wouldn't have seafood any other way but fried. You are entitled to your own opinion though.

I disagree about frying. While untouched fish is awesome as in sashimi or a lightly seasoned broiled fish, one cannot deny really good fried oysters or crawfish. Clam bellies in New England are wonderful - and unknown here. Tempura at a quality restaurant - can't be beat.

The problem is finding it around here. I think Sea Island does a great broiled whole flounder or snapper. And it is not to expensive.

I did forget about sushi, that is the only exception for me eating seafood not being fried. I don't like broiled or baked fish though.

A little OT here but I used to love Crab-N between Rockport and Aransas Pass. Went there 2x a year for maybe 10 years. Starting a few years ago it went downhill so fast it was sad. Used to be family owned . . . maybe they sold out. It was and is a small place, not fancy at all, but the quality used to be a knockout.

Selling out kills restaurants. The new folks cut corners. Not sea food but Tom's Ribs was once a good local chain in San Antonio - then it went down the train.

I once in awhile go there ,to the one at the Forum. Haven't tried anything in New Braunfels and plan to celebrate my sister's birthday at Red Lobster Thursday since I can't get to New York any time soon.
Years ago my sister ate at a restaurant over by Wonderland Mall. Don't recall the name but it had very good seafood. Of course its gone now. Despite our closeness to Corpus Christi,,,,,,,,, and Port Lavaca there really is a dearth of seaffod places.

I second that. Not a fan of broiled or baked. Deep fried all the way.
