My partner and I had the best dinner last night, at The Ugly Tuna, upstairs in Riverwalk.
My partner had the seared tuna platter with 2 sides for $10. It was an abundant amount of food, and the quality of the fresh tuna, marinated in mesquite flavoring was absolutely an unforgetable treat. We were just at the fish market where fresh sushi quality tuna was $8 a lb. So.. this was an excellent deal. Her tuna steak was probably 8-10 oz and cooked to perfection when she requested MR.
I had the Alaskan grilled Halibut for $14 and it came with 2 sides. They brought me 2 steaks, probably in the vicinity of 12 oz. Grilled to perfection, and tasted like it was nicely seasoned.
We also ordered the sweet potato french fries as our "dessert."
The wait staff wouldn't let our soda's go dry, nor our glasses of water. They were quick, efficient, and our food came out very quickly, just off the grill. Great prices, EXCELLENT seafood, and the view wasn't too shabby either.
I've had the tuna taco's and the raw oysters on another occasion, and I must say, we've never been disappointed. On our next visit, we promised ourselves to try the buckets of oysters, steamed.
You can bet, at those prices, we'll be back in the very near future. I give this place 5 stars.
