get there early is the best advice I can offer. The crabs are my personal favorite. Service is okay but they stay busy.

Stopped to eat at Nancy's and it was delicious! Everything was well seasoned and not greasy! The onion rings are to die for!!!!!! We have tried almost every item on the menu and have not been disappointed!

My wife and I were traveling down US 90, when we saw a sign for Nancy's Seafood Shack and thought that we try it. We got off the highway and then realized that Houma was 10 miles off the highway. We look at each other and said what the heck. Let's go. We found Nancy's and had a wonderful meal.... More

Great charbroiled oysters. Boiled shrimp large and perfectly seasoned. Our go-to seafood restaurant. Onion rings are thick-cut just as I like them.

This is my favorite restaurant in Houma and I've tried quite a few as I have recurrent business in the city. The seafood is fresh and the prices are reasonable. Cold beer, good food.

Seafood is so fresh, it seems like it was just caught, prepared, and placed on your plate within minutes. The waitresses are attentive and the owner is always on hand. Food is prepared perfectly. Haven't been disappointed yet.

My family and I go here whenever we are in town. This is our favorite seafood restaurant in the area. The servers are awesome and so nice. We bring our twins here which is a challenge and they always help accommodate. The food is authentic, tasty and wonderful. This place is a gem and top of our list!

I'm from the area but living across the country now and had to find some oysters on the half shell, boiled shrimp and crawfish. Everyone has been raving over Nancy's except for one person I know (because Nancy's uses "Season All" instead of "Tony's" seasoning). The service was not good tonight (no utensils, had to get up to find the... More

This seafood is average. Nothing spectacular. Prices are on the high end and service could be quicker. Don't be in a rush if you eat here.

Nancy's was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. We couldn't decide for an appetizer so we ordered two. Waitress suggested the crab claws and we added bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. The crab claws were very good although I prefer them not fried. The shrimp was good but by the end of the meal they weren't my favorite and we... More
