We love this place. The menu is limited to a small number of excellent choices. I love the salad with the strawberry vinagrette. The last time I was there, I had fried flounder, which was a special. I don't usually think of flounder as a...More

I would have never expected a restaurant of this quality in Matagorda. The food selection and the wine list was top notch. We sat outside on the patio with our little chihuahua. While the furniture needed some TLC, it was a good atmosphere. The inside...More

We've eaten here a few times before. It is nice to know that there is a professional chef in our area. That alone would be enough to cause the locals to visit. But....it is not 100.00 dollars worth of nice! That was with no wine...More

I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner. I'm sorry that you were disappointed in the cost. All of our ingredients are fresh and made here in house. Let me know if you come back. I would love to talk to you. Thanks for your comments.

Quaint restaurant where you will leave knowing someone that lives in Matagorda. Everyone is friendly--knows everyone else--and best of all, the food is excellent. Trained culinary chef Edie Lanier not only cooks your dinner, but will make sure that you enjoyed it also as she...More

Way off the beaten path on the Texas Coast is this little jewel that would be right at home in San Francisco, Dallas or Sydney. The menu changes depending on whatever the fishmonger has fresh (non-seafood options available too). The chef Edie Lanier has a...More

This is my go-to place to eat in Matagorda. I will happily pay a little more for food to have an excellent meal. Plates are around $25, $3 beers, $4-8 glasses of wine. The Chef will usually come out and talk to each table.

We made a reservation for Spoonbills at the suggestion of the B&B owner where we were staying in Palacios. The restaurant is a remodeled house on a quite side street in Matagorda. They have a very cute screened in patio, but it was way to...More

Spoonbills offers a limited selection of delectable food, and they won't serve anything but fresh fish caught TODAY. Because of this, they sometimes don't have the wonderful pecan crusted fish, but will always offer a tasty 'off the menu' special. And let THEM select your...More
