Goode Co. Seafood

2621 Westpark Drive Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-523-7154

Location Description:

We're still crazy about Goode Co. Seafood after all these years, as evidenced by its shrimp and crab campechana gaining a hot spot in the Top 10 of Robb Walsh's 100 Favorite Dishes in Houston list. But that's not all that the Goode family does good: mesquite-grilling is their specialty, as seen in their other restaurants (Goode Co. Bar-B-Q and Goode Co. Taqueria), and its po-boys with mesquite-grilled shrimp trump nearly every other place in town, as do its simple but strong frozen margaritas. Be sure to grab a seat in the "older" part of the restaurant: a converted train car with retro fixtures and photos. And if you're dining alone, sit at the bar to be entertained by fast-moving shuckers freeing oysters from their shells by the pound.
