Restaurants in Port "A"

Going to Port Aransas tonight. Any suggestions for seafood that isn't fried? Love it steamed, boiled, or broiled and with pasta.

  1. The Crazy Cajun, Shells, and Venetian Hotplate (you may need a reservation for this last one) all offer good seafood that isn't fried.

    1. I realize that you have probably already gone and come back from port a but for anyone else headed down there...
      There is a seafood shop called port a seafood co. (or something close to that) right next to the IGA. All they sell is fresh seafood and if you aren't renting or camping at a place that you can cook, they will steam it for you. It’s a ton better than any of the crap you’ll get served in most port a restaurants.
