Great establishment that had an easy readable menu with a great selection of seafood. Prices were very reasonable. They did serve alcohol. The staff was friendly and very courteous. My son paid for all six of us and they automatically gave him a senior discount...More

It was good but nothing special. The crawfish bisque had so much rice that is was hard to find crawfish in it. I had the shrimp pasta and it was nothing special, The shrimp was over seasoned and was so salty it burned my throat....More

Had the seafood skewers, mahi, and fried seafood platter. It was all delicious! Very fresh! Clean restaurant, went there straight after schlitterbaun so it was casual enough to walk in like that. Great place, great food after long day at waterpark.

Good shrimp. Good catfish. Needs better cocktail and tarter sauce. Watch for bad lemons. Grab your own silverware as you order at the window. The staff will expect a tip even though service is minimal. At least, the food was good.

The fish was so greasy that the breading wouldn't stay on it. I couldn't finish it. Never going back.

This "Shack" had a crowd when I arrived at 2:00. Had a Shrimp Po' Boy on Garlic toast with steak fries! Awesome! Food was great, service was okay! Will definitely come back when I pass through New Braunfels again!

I was a little put out at the ordering process. Reminds me too much of the hole-in-the-wall BBQ places we have in Texas. But I was pleasantly surprised by the food. the Cajun menu is plentiful and varied, you can have a chicken fried steak...More

While I agree with other reviews that the order process is more like some Bar-B-Q joints, who cares when the food is this good. Captain Ben's Seafood Shack in New Braunfels took up the digs of an old bbq place in town so I was...More
