Surfs Up Maywood

Meet us where 


This seafood market in Maywood specializes in seafood-forward soul food. The Louisiana-style cajun and creole seafood at Surfs Up Maywood is never frozen and the lobster, shrimp, and catfish are hand-breaded and fried to perfection.


Of course, you can also get your soul food grilled or even vegan. Try the grilled shrimp and fish for a healthier option or the Shock ‘N Shrimp for a vegan option. 


For us, though, when at Surfs Up Maywood, we are diving right in for the Fried Lobster Po’Boy. We also love the family feasts if you need to feed a group. The Beach Feast includes crab legs, lobster, a half-pound of shrimp, turkey sausage, corn, and red potatoes. Eat up!
