Any Good Seafood in Austin?

looking for suggestions for moderate to cheap seafood places- New England "style"

  1. Not sure what you mean by New England Style other than clam chowder. Pacific Star is not fancy at all but cheap eats and large soft shell crab right now.

    1. I'm not 100% sure of what you mean by New England "style" either. But Quality Seafood has a lot of the type of fried seafood and raw oysters that I noticed in Connecticut. No New England clam chowder or lobster rolls, though. :(

      1. re: brattpowered

        Quality also does pretty decent HH deals from what I've heard

      2. Central Texas, especially Austin, is not the place to look for New England "style" seafood since New England is thousands of miles away. If you want to know about decent seafood in Austin, I'm sure the folks on this CH board can help you.

        1. The only seafood place I know of is Truluck's on Colorado St. It is not cheap, though.

          1. Perla's on South Congress, just opened and is supposed to be New England style seafood.
