It’s no secret that Houston is home to some of the best seafood restaurants in Texas! With the gulf just minutes away, fresh fish, shellfish, and crustaceans are coming into the city every day, leading to an abundance of surf & turf restaurants, sushi bars, oyster bars, and Cajun-inspired eateries. Luckily for residents of our luxury apartments in Houston, there are plenty of options to choose from no matter what neighborhood you call home. Here are just a few of our favorites.
Captain Tom’s Seafood & Oyster Bar
Captain Tom’s is a bit of a drive if you don’t live in northwest Houston, but it’s well worth the trip! Captain Tom’s is well known for its diner-like, unfussy atmosphere (in the shape of a boat) coupled with some of the best seafood in town. Locals rave about the gumbo, oysters (fried or on the half-shell), fried shrimp, micheladas, low prices, and great service. It’s a popular spot so you may have to wait for a seat but if that doesn’t bother you, you’re bound to love it.
Goode Company Seafood
Located near our luxury apartments in River Oaks, Houston and not far from the Museum District, Goode Company Seafood is best loved for its crawfish and oysters. It also offers a relaxed atmosphere that is less bustling than what you’ll find at Captain Toms, so it’s a good option for a casual date night. When you go, be sure to try the campechana and consider getting the gumbo and mesquite smoked oysters as well.
Among the pricier options in town, Roka Akor is nevertheless well worth a visit. It’s located near our luxury apartments in River Oaks and near the Galleria. This Japanese steakhouse is one of the best places in town to get sushi as well as seafood classics like crab legs and shrimp tempura. You’ll also find delicious Wagyu beef entrees, unique desserts, and an extensive whiskey menu (as well as other spirits, beers, and cocktails). Perfect for a special occasion or date night.
Eddie V’s Prime Seafood
Also located near our River Oaks apartments, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood is another great spot for elegant dining and a wide selection of seafood dishes. It may be a chain, but Eddie V’s delivers unique dishes (alongside all the classics) enhanced by excellent service and live jazz music. While you’re there, try the lobster tacos, fresh oysters, crab fried rice, and bananas foster for dessert.
1751 Sea and Bar
For those who live near Rice Military/Washington Ave, 1751 Sea and Bar is a great place to enjoy seafood and gin drinks. When you visit, try the scallop chawanmushi, oysters from the raw bar, and pork belly with kimchi. If you’re looking for the perfect martini, this is also one of the best places in Houston to find it.
