J R Seafood on Bayshore Blvd......any opinions?
I just drove by J.R. Seafood (wholesale and retail) on Bayshore Blvd.. which I didn't know existed.
It looks like this could be a very convenient source of quality fish for me, so i jumped online to find out if it is any good. But I was suprised that I couldn't find any references to this place (good or bad) here on Chowhound. It gets some very good reviews on yelp, but I don't trust yelp as far as I can throw it.
So, is anybody familiar with J.R. Seafood? Do they have good quality fish/prices? Do they have ample supply for the retail side (or is it primarily a wholesale business)? What are the pros/cons of this place?
Of particular interest, do they carry live, local crab in season? And, if so, can they cook and clean it?
Can't speak to crab there.
I stopped there for paella fixins a few months ago. There was nothing in the display case and after a while an uninterested worker came out from the back. I skeptically ordered some shrimp and clams, both of which turned out to be way past their prime. I ended up tossing them in the trash and going to Sun Fat at mission & 23rd. I won't be wasting my time there again.
