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.

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.

We loved the food and wished we had a better service experience. Our waiter took about 15 mins to finally greet us, only after a waitress had come over to check on us and assure us he was coming. He then continued to rush away without hearing everything we wanted. He came back to make sure my husband was refilled... More

We had a really great waiter and since we had asked how the restaurant fared during the hurricane, he even brought out a notebook of pictures. We then discovered that he and several other waiters had just been vacationing in our neck of the woods so we had lots of them looking after us and chatting about the San Antonio... More

Visited mid-afternoon (3-ish) on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was approximately 1/2 to 2/3 full of patrons. Our food was okay for the pricing but our server CLEARLY wanted to turn this table! I don't think we have ever felt so rushed out of a restaurant in our lives. What a terrible experience. It was almost as if there was a... More
