We just visited Monument Inn again. It's been a while since we made the trip out there, including the ferry ride, but the place hasn't changed and neither has the superior seafood. Monument Inn is an excellent place for a celebration. In addition to the large restaurant with it's wide view of the ship channel there are also banquet rooms that are frequently booked for parties and weddings.
The staff excell at handling large parties. Our group of ten was served promptly and with a minumum of hassle.
I can't say enough about the food! I had the Shrimp Jamboree which included shrimp cocktail, fried shrimp, grilled shrimp and stuffed shrimp. All of it was perfectly prepared and there was more than I could eat. But I tried!
My husband had exceptional fish and chips. The fish was in small pieces and just lovely. The fried catfish was also a big hit.
We had one issue with the meal - one person in our group found many small pieces of crab shell in her stuffed crab. The manager came promptly and dealt with the issue by offering a free dessert.
I continue to recommend the Monument Inn for good seafood in a scenic setting. While you're there, make the very short drive over to see the Battleship Texas and the San Jacinto Monument for which the restaurant is named. History and good shrimp all in one place!
