The Shrimp Barn

Me at the Shrimp Barn

I've been meaning to post about this restaurant for about a month now! My friend Hope had told me about it and raved about the delicious food so I went with some girlfriends for a Christmas lunch and gift exchange. We loved it!

A meal from the Shrimp Barn

This is the plate I got. I can't recall the number or name but I believe it's the seafood combination, which includes shrimp and crabcake. It was yummy though I still feel no one has matched my mom's crab cakes. Still, this was a great lunch. The salad bar includes gumbo, which is awesome. Just the right amount of okra - it's always disappointing when you get gumbo and there's only two pieces in there.

Delicious and baked fresh daily

And these rolls are baked fresh everyday we were told! The restaurant is SMALL so when you go, go early, late or plan to wait. It's worth it, however. The facility was very clean and the staff was super nice! It's the kind of restaurant that makes our small town awesome and welcoming. Go try it out!

Mmmm this was sooooo good. I'm glad we went! I keep wanting to take Tim and my parents there too. I hope your post makes others try it out; it's definitely worth at least one visit!

I think I may have to take a road trip soon. We pass through Seguin about once a month on our way to the in-laws. Usually end up at Dragon Place for lunch. This would be a nice change of pace.

Check it out Sean. Well worth a visit. Or seven a second visit, right Jess?? :-)

The food looks almost as inviting as your great smile. I haven't visited in a long time and it seems I've missed seeing some great shots.
