Sea Island didn't become the best seafood restaurant in San Antonio overnight! Our roots in this city date all the way back to 1912, when Tom Anthony opened the iconic Manhattan Café in downtown San Antonio.
When Tom's son, Dan, took over the thriving restaurant, he still had his heart set on opening his own steakhouse. But, Dan had a special talent for preparing exquisite seafood dishes and Manhattan Café regular and old family friend, Henry Reed, convinced him that what San Antonio really needed a good seafood restaurant.
In 1965, Dan Anthony, his wife Chrissy, and Henry Reed opened the first Sea Island Shrimp House on Rector St. behind North Star Mall. The restaurant soon became one of the most well-known seafood restaurants in San Antonio.
Today, Sea Island has six locations in San Antonio and opened the New Braunfels location in 2016. No other seafood restaurant in South Texas can offer the same high quality, meticulously prepared seafood at such a great value! To this day, the Sea Island restaurant group continues to be a family-owned business. Dan and Chrissy's son – Barclay – is now the CEO of the restaurant group and has devoted his entire career to carrying on his family's legacy of quality, value, and service.
