The food is okay, and the service needs to be a lot more attentive. Nice view when sitting outside watching the boats go in and out.

Great location on the Kemah waterfront. Good service in a nice trendy building. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. Won't be back.

Well, I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a little girl. When I was young my dad and I would come and eat pound after dozen of crawfish and oysters and feed the fish with the stale bread the servers would give me. They no longer offer the free fish bread, but this meal is just as... More

My recommended choice in Kemah. I have been visiting for 25 years. Fresh seafood and great view of the Clear Creek Channel.

If you're going to have "Oyster Bar" in the name of your restaurant, know what you're doing. Staff was untrained on where they were from, unfamiliar with what constitutes an oyster shooter, and temperature was lukewarm. When we brought the temperature issue up to the server we were told "He just shucked them, I watched him." Food is sub-par. Service... More

We visited with the kids on a Sunday lunchtime and really enjoyed our meal. I ordered the coconut shrimp which were delicious, my husband enjoyed his chicken burger and my son had the kids chicken strips and fries. The portions were very generous and all freshly cooked. Service was friendly and efficient too. Great lunch and I'm sure we'll be... More

Food was amazing. Kay (the waitress) went out of her way to make us feel like family. Had the chef special, as well as the grilled Mahi Acapulco. Oysters Rockefeller were good, a few too many bell peppers for my liking. Overall the service was phenomenal, door was great, and the view was really nice.

On a Thursday morning, after a pleasant walk around the Kemah Boardwalk, my husband and I chose the dark, cool dining room for an early (11:30) lunch. We were seated at a window table with a view of the fishing boats returning from Trinity Bay. I expected chain-restaurant food. Flying Dutchman (like McCormick and Schmick's and all of their properties)... More

I ordered the stuffed crab. It was good but I was stuffed :( I substituted fries for twiced baked potato which was really good. Large portions at this restaurant and you will definitely get your monies worth. Great for large parties and very kid friendly.
