“Good Choice for a Casual Seafood Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Goode's Seafood, in my opinion, is a much better choice than the nearby Goode's Texas Barbecue, both in the Goode's small restaurant chain in Houston.

I highly recommend the two dishes I almost always order here: Campechana Extra, a tall and delicious cocktail of shrimp, crab, avocado, and cilantro, followed by a bowl (or a cup if you are not too hungry) of the seafood gumbo, which is rich and dark and filled with shrimp and oysters and fish. Both very satisfying with a tall draft beer served in a chilled glass.

“Tripe S”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

S is for successful, seafood surprise.
Goode company is a fun, casual environment with several well known restaurants.

The seafood was delicious. The empenadas were a great surprise that came with the meal.

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A well established restaurant serving Houston for many years. Food is great and service even better. The traffic to get to it can sometimes be a problem, but it is worth the time.

“We could not figure what all the hype was about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

She had a shrimp po boy and I had crab cake, boiled shrimp and seafood gumbo. All for it was bland and or/ordinary. Our service was unattentive, the atmosphere was "seafoody" and good. The food was no good. I was born and raised in New Orleans so call me a snob, but this food was no more that shrimp boiled in a pot of water (and too long by the way) the po-boy was frozen shrimp from a bag on a grocrey store hogie bun, gumbo was nothing special but at least it didn't seem to come out of a can. not impressive at all. The crab cakes were 90% bread crumbs barely seasoned not good either.

“Fabulous seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We ate here after attending a Rice university football game. The mesquite catfish was out of this world. They also have a fabulous appetizer that is like a shrimp cocktail but it is shrimp and crab in salsa with avocados and chips. The stuffed potato and the green beans and potatoes were very good too. We had a group of 11 and all of them were very happy with the food.
