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.

    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.

    Tried as alternative to Pappadeaux's, long time customer of same. Similiar in price(when you start considering all the add-ons they have and they also make you pay full price for soup), but not so much in quantity and quality.With the abundance of seafood restaurants in the area, doubtul for a return.

    I enjoy the food and the service, but the noise level even when the restaurant is not full makes it difficult to hear the waiter and to carry-on any conversation without yelling at others at the table. I have probably eaten my last business lunch there due to the noise.

    Goode Co. Seafood is unique. You know you are welcomed the moment you enter. It has an ambience of elegant vitality, with a touch of exclusivity. For a special occasion, it is perfect because it allows you and your guests to be yourselves, no pretense about this place. Warm hospitality complemented by exceptional seafood food. Vibrant restaurant that feels like home, you can stay all night enjoying family and friends.

    Grear service. I had a small issue with the selection of wine in the sense that when the requested Prosecco wasn't available they were offering me a replacement at a higher price and wouldn't sell it at the price of the original. No big issue, but a touch of resistance. Attentive staff.

    We went here to treat a friend, and wanted to try their menu for Houston Restaurant Weeks. I've made reservations for dinner before and it never fails that even when we arrive right on time for a reservation we're still asked to wait 5-10 minutes. Not the case here. We walked in, stated our name for our reservation and were IMMEDIATELY seated. It was marvelous. The server was very nice and offered great suggestions. Food came out promptly and was delicious. I had the campechana for my appetizer. It was good, though it could have used a fresh squeeze of lime juice to brighten it up. The red fish was great (I had it grilled at the suggestion of the waiter) and my husband ate every last one of his shrimp. Dessert was also delicious.

    Food was excellent; wish I could say the same for service. We waited quite awhile to be served, even watched the table behind us who were seated after us get served before us. We were seated right next to the service station, which was bad enough, but worse when you had multiple servers there laughing while we were attempting to have a conversation even over all of the noise throughout the restaurant. The table was also close to the front door so unfortunately were forced to see every person who entered and exited the restaurant as well as everyone lingering in the doorway waiting for a table. Definitely would not recommend if you are looking to have an intimimate evening dinner.

    I'm a gulf coast seafood fanatic. Good Company fits my idea of good, always fresh seafood. Any kind of grilled anything is great. We especially love the grilled shrimp. I'm gluten-free. The shrimp & catfish I've had are drenched in corn flour. Yum! Wine list isnt too bad, either. This is a noisy place when it starts to fill up. We'll be back.

    Dined with a party of 5. We had a great server throughout the meal. Oysters on the half shell were fresh and presented well. Dishes of grilled snapper, redfish, and halibut were all prepared and presented well. Fish is always so fresh here and there method of grilling imparts a wonderful flavor. The campechana appetizer is always a treat.

    We enjoyed such a lovely meal celebrating my husband's birthday with our teenage son on our first visit to Good Co. Seafood! Every detail of our experience was perfect from our our meal to the service, ending with a beautiful slice of chocolate cake. The campechana was delicious as well as our other entrees of grilled trout/shrimp and fried catfish. We look forward to returning soon and our son has decided that's where he wants to go on his birthday too!
