Angry Tuna Seafood is named after the tuna fish, which inhabits the Gulf of Mexico and is many fishermen’s favorite catch. Tuna is only one of the Gulf’s many bounties, though, and Angry Tuna Seafood complements its tuna fish selections with many other Gulf-caught offerings.

At this establishment, tuna isn’t simply some fish you get out of a can. Instead, slices and steaks of freshly brought-in tuna are incorporated into a variety of dishes. A Smoked Tuna Dip and Seared Tuna BLT highlight the menu, and there’s also a Seared Tuna Bowl and Seared Tuna Nachos (among other options).

Complementing the tuna is an array of fish and other seafood offerings, including a Blackened Fish Salad, Fresh Zydeco Seafood Gumbo, Seafood Po Boy and many others. The Colossal Seafood Platter, Grilled Shrimp Dinner and Surf n Turf are more traditional meal entrees.

For less seafaring diners who prefer foods without fins, there are many land-based options as well. A Strawberry Chicken Salad, Beach Burger, Chicken Sandwich, Reuben Sandwich and Prime Rib are just some of the non-seafood selections.

During brunch hours, seafood and traditional breakfast offerings ensure everyone can find something that’s to their liking. 

Drink options include both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, and there’s a kid’s menu and two desserts (Colossal Chocolate Cake and Key Lime Pie).

All of this is offered at reasonable prices considering the quality of the seafood. Lunch specials are under $10, and other menu items offer a comparable value although they cost more. Service is prompt and courteous, making this a go-to place for anyone who wants a good seafood meal in a relaxed setting.

Whether you’re on a date or have a whole family to feed, Angry Tuna Seafood hits all the right marks. The seafood is fresh, the dishes are expertly prepared, the prices are affordable, and the servers are friendly. What other reason is needed to come here for a meal?

A few of our menu favorites at Angry Tuna Seafood include:

Smoked Tuna Dip
Freshly smoked tuna in a rich dip and topped with pickled jalapenos. Grab one of the house-made chips that accompany the award-winning dip and dig in. Your taste buds will thank you.

Triple Cooked Chicken Wings
Even though this is a seafood place, they know how to do wings right. The Triple Cooked Chicken Wings are brined, baked, and fried to produce a crispy exterior, meaty interior, and bounty of flavor. Both spicy and non-spicy seasonings are available.

Fresh Zydeco Seafood Gumbo
Perhaps the best gumbo on the beach, this hearty stew has crab, shrimp, fish, and oysters floating in a flavorful, spicy broth.

Seared Tuna Bowl
When in a tuna restaurant, order tuna. The Seared Tuna Bowl comes with freshly seared tuna, seasoned rice, steamed veggies, and mango salsa. A special Asian dressing tops the bowl off with some ginger flair.

Prime Rib
If you’re not into the fish thing, go with the traditional classic of Prime Rib. The meat is cooked to perfection until it’s juicy and tender, and it comes with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables like you’d expect.

Insider Tips:
– The restaurant has sufficient space and staff to accommodate large groups, so it’s a natural choice if you have a large party. Everyone can find something they like on the menu, and the multiple meals should be ready quickly.
– There’s an open mic that brings in local musicians some nights. Call ahead to see when the next open mic is if you want to listen to some free live music.
