On a recent trip to Port Aransas, Rockport and Fulton, the seafood we had at Shempy s was far better than at any of the other seafood restaurants where we dined. Had not even noticed Shempy s on the several occasions we pass by it; went on recommendation of a realtor and were we ever impressed with the quality, quantity and pricing! Can t wait to go back!
I almost hate to let the world know about this wonderful, neighborhood grill. But I have to tell you to give it a try if you haven't already. The place is small, the food is simple, but boy-oh-boy is it ever good. I usually have the fried shrimp. Shempy's beats all the other Rockport-Fulton restaurants hands down. My dad had the blackened redfish and couldn't believe how tender, moist, and flavorful his meal was not to have come out of his own kitchen. He hadn't ordered fish in a long time. My mother has passed away and he misses her fish dinners so he gave it a try. He didn't say but I think he liked Shempy's better then Mom's. There is a slogan for them...better than Mom's cooking. It is!
Have eaten here many times since and I am so hooked on the Lobster Bisque and when available the Bread Pudding! Very good food for the price and service is always friendly. Changing from four stars to five.
Ate there last week and it was okay. Lobster Bisque was pretty good. Frog legs were okay but seemed to be a little undercooked and the breading didn't stay on. Fried Oysters were pretty good but again tasted a little undercooked. Will go again and try some other things to see if we like.
Had lunch at Shempy's today...a must for anyone who loves a GOOD burger! I had the burger, and my husband had the cheese burger...we also had an order of fries and onion rings. We are healthy eaters, but neither of us could complete our meals! Good fresh veggies on the burgers, and the beef patty was fresh and seasoned perfectly! We will go back next week.
Ok! first off let me say they are useing real crab in the crab cakes not that fake crap. Second if you order a large burger be ready to carry some of it home with Ya. I just ate a burger and The Wife had a grilled seafood platter. I must say it is some of the best food we have had in this area. Those that come to the Rock Port area must try the seafood. Not only is it cooked to order but it is done right. This is far better than most places in the Rock Port area. I give it five stars Oh and not once did my Tea glass go dry. I give the wait staff five stars also. So come for the fishing Stay for the great food and drinks.
