Old Fish Shack-type place

amazinc | Mar 7, 201508:16 AM

Back in my youth ( ah, youth) there were several places between
say Houston and Galveston, on the back roads, where you could
eat your fill of freshly caught fish, shrimp/oysters, crab, etc.
Nothing fancy...paper plates, paper napkins paper cups, but delicious gulf seafood. I remember a place called, I think, Topwater Grill or something like that; another called Cliftons-by-the-Sea and one or two more that I can't name now ( no longer young). Does anyone else recall these and are they or others still in operation. I think a few were wiped out by the hurricanes of the past decade, but hopefully some new ones have arrived. Any help out there????
