Mrs. Chrissy Anthony, co-founder of Sea Island Shrimp House with her late husband Dan and friend Henry Reed in 1965, passed away at the age of 89 on November 30, 2023, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.

She spent her career building a legacy of service to the local community, both in involvement with her church, several nonprofit organizations and in her mission to provide a place where anyone could afford to bring their family and have a really good meal.

If you’ve visited Sea Island or been a regular at the original location on Rector, you would have often seen her at the hostess stand on Friday nights, welcoming in guests, chatting up families in line and treating everyone like family.

Chrissy has always been the heart and soul of Sea Island and will be greatly missed by those closest to her and her large network of restaurant family. We will continue to honor her legacy with the great recipes that began in her kitchen and giving back to our community with the same values she shared.

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.

It all starts with the

we can get our hands on!
