A word from Goode Co. Seafood - Katy Freeway
Determined to recreate an atmosphere from the 1930’s, back when Tarpon swam in herds off the Texas Gulf Coast, we strive to take our customers back to a time and place that their parents and grandparents enjoyed. We set out on a journey from Port Isabel to New Orleans to find the finest photographs that are still intact from that time period to adorn the walls of our Gulf Coast seafood house. We also acquired a 25,000 lb. steel propeller as well as a 1939 Chris Craft Runabout boat and both are on display in our restaurant for your enjoyment.

    Most of our meal was great, but I love fried shrimp! I know I'm in the minority, but that's my favorite. Unfortunately for me, the fried shrimp was awful! It tasted like it came out of a box in the grocery freezer section. I've had better fried shrimp at Popeye's! Another thing that bothered me was the wait staff assistant that brought our bread and water had BO and he did not place the items on the table, he tossed them. Our waitress was great and attentive. My husband and our friend had great meals. Mine was a big fat ZERO!

    I came across this restaurant by browsing the internet there were many wonderful reviews so for our 33rd wedding anniversary we decided to give it a try & we were so glad we did! Everything was great the food was totally delicious! i do hope that we can visit again B4 our next anniversary which is 10/3- that a long time when good food is involved. The crab & shrimp cocktail was like nothing we had ever taste, simply delicious we both ordered the seafood platter, my husband said the oysters were the best he had ever had, I agreed

    We were celebrating a special 92 yr. old's birthday. 12 met there on a Saturday night. We don't see this special woman as often as we would like so this was very important. From the time we arrived until we "waddled" out from being stuffed, we received the very best care and attention from our fabulous server, Bailey. We are a lively bunch and she handled all of us with great ease and patience. The 2 1/2 hrs. we spent there, we savored the most delicious meals. From the Gumbo soup to the Texas Shrimp to the Seafood Platter. We also enjoyed their tasty wines and specialty drinks. From the entire "T Family" thank you for making this occasion, very very special !!

I don't have his name but his calm, well informed, good natured service made all the difference in our enjoyment of the evening. Good food and wonderful service --now there's a winning combination!!

    My first time visiting was for my friend's birthday gathering. A family member recommended this restaurant because they have a wonderful selection of seafood at reasonable prices. So when we went to for my friend's birthday I knew then that I wanted to have my birthday gathering there as well. In order to reserve the private room there is a $950 minimum which was a little annoying but business is business and I understand. I had a gathering of 20 people and everyone enjoyed their time there. The campechana is my favorite.

    Always delicious seafood at Goode Co. The Hwy 10 location has great atmosphere - a beautiful CrissCraft mahogany boat sits in the middle of the restaurant, and a huge bronze propeller fills the wall in the bar. The service is extra friendly, and although the room can be noisy, it's a fun atmosphere. The BEST campechana in the world is served here, but also try the soft shell crab, Texas shrimp, and great gumbo; finish off with their key lime pie - all delicious.

    We came back again for my Godmother's birthday. She was happy and she was also given dessert for her birthday. The only thing is everytime we come to eat there they are always out of flounder. My dad's always try to order the flounder and they are always out. So that is the only things dissappointing.

    Have enjoyed Goode Company Seafood on Katy Freeway for years . On this particular occasion...a small dinner for a bride-to-be....we had reservations and the experience was excellent . Our waitress , Laura, was the best ! I hope she is still there the next time I go, because I will specifically ask to sit in her section. We were there for several hours on a Friday night at peak dining time, and never felt rushed by the wait staff to finish so that they could have a lot of turnover on the tables. We were able to visit and enjoy our special occasion . Highly recommend Goode Company Seafood and will definitely return!

    Cajun influenced seafood with lots of choices. Had gumbo and griiled shrimp. What you like in gumbo is so subjective, but it was basic and tastey. Grilled shrimp was flavorful, crispy yet succulent and served with panache. I go here several times a year for lunch and they are consistent with quality service, professional & bright atmosphere and very good food. Excellent choice for a reliable business meal or special night out without going into the ultra-pricey range. I've never had a bad meal or dining experience here.

    Service can be sketchy, but food quality is usually pretty reliable. Best seafood I've ever had? No, but certainly not the worst either. Special attention given to a party member with birthday, etc. The Goode family does try to give a better than average dining experience and for the most part they succeed.

    When I made the res I specifically noted it was my parents 70TH anniversary and asked to have cake or something special prepared. When I was called to confirm the res I specifically asked if they had gotten my message about the celebration and was assured that they had. The food was great, then the waitress came out with the deserts to take orders (huh?). I had to explain to her what I had requested. She said she didn't know anything and sent over our waiter. I had to explain AGAIN, at the table with my parents. He left after also saying he didn't know anything & sent over the manager. I explained AGAIN (THIRD time!). When the cake finally arrived, there wasn't even a candle. We have been customers for years & were very disappointed.
