From the Proprietor
Greetings Loyal Readers!
We have a great event coming up this Sunday, and you are all invited!
Quality Seafood Market is celebrating 75 years!
75 years ago on January 27th 1938, Quality Seafood opened its doors as a local seafood market, providing fresh seafood to Austinites. Our history in Austin is strong, and we are so excited we are able to honor and carry on the legacy created by the previous owners. Yes, there have been a few changes, from a mere stall on Congress Avenue, to 3rd street, to 19th street, and finally to our current location on Airport Blvd. The transition grew from a local fish market, to a wholesale provider to some of the great restaurants in Austin, to our own restaurant and bar. As we continue to grow, our goal is to continue to provide the best seafood available. Our recent expansion has given us even more space. Please join us for a night to remember! Our ceremony begins at 3:00 PM, and at 3:30 PM, the party begins. Come see our new Grilled Oyster Bar, your mouth will delight!
