We're Winter Texans staying until March. Took the shuttle ($.25) to Trout Street. We arrived at 5:30 and there was only a table of four eating in the dining room. The pleasant hostess said it would be fine to eat out in the patio. It was really a great view of the boats at the Marina. Watress was prompt, friendly and courteous. We ordered drinks and advised we were in no hurry. Drinks arrived promptly and she left us alone but checked back occasionally. My wife had the chowder and remarked at how many large clam pieces were in it. I had a cup of Gumbo which obviously was fresh, not canned. The rice was tender, not mushy and just the right amount of sausage and okra. It may be a bit spicy for some but it was perfect to my liking. We each had the fish of the day, Drum, and we had it sauteed. It seemed to have been coated in a very thin crepe batter then gently fried. I have never had such a flavorful fish. It was so buttery in flavor but the frying was not greasy. Again, it was positively fresh, not frozen. Also came with a side order of vegetables; yellow squash, zucchini, red bell pepper strips and carrots. these were freshly cooked and just tender crisp. Bill was a little under $100 with tip and feel it was a reasonable price. When we left at 7:30 there were 4 other couples in the patio and 6=7 more in the main restaurant. A nice experience, good people and a great meal.
