Last week we were in the mood for some straightforward seafood and decided to go to S&D Oyster Company on McKinney. Now we normally go to Pappadeuxs for seafood, but we werent in the mood for a lot of food. I think the portion sizes at Pappadeuxs are big.
Those of us who have been around for awhile remember when there was not much of a choice for seafood in Dallas other than Vincents until S&D opened in the 70s. Needles to say, the food and the place havent changed much, which is a good thing, not a bad thing. For appetizers, we had excellent gulf oysters on the half shell with some good, cold Shiner Bock. The entrees were fried oysters (hey, Im an oyster fool!) with creole rice and boiled shrimp. Everything was good and the service was prompt, just what you would expect from a Texas-like fish house.
