Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

Went there for the first time for our last night in Houston to celebrate my fiancé and I’s engagement. Everything was incredible we had the fried quail and Dan Dan shrimp and oysters to begin with and it was SO GOOD. We had drinks from the bar and the puro pasión and the Sidecar were our favorites. The entrees were so amazing, the duck and the grouper were recommended by our server Rocko and he did not miss. Everything was amazing, the service, the food and everything was so timely. We were checked on by the management throughout the meal and we really felt taken care of. We finished off with the espresso martini and WOW, I had to get the recipe because it was the best one I’ve had in forever.

Great spot, 10 out of 10 would recommend. We told all of our houston family about it after, excited to come back the next time we are in town.

Cocktails (signature sidecar) and food are all amazing. Could have made a meal out of our two appetizers (cornbread and burrata) but had to save room for the delicious etouffe. It’s not the traditional Cajun style recipe…it’s even better.

This year's annual anniversary dinner (for my husband and I and two other couples) was amazing at Eunice! Our waiter, Nate, was most helpful. He provided spot on meal recommendations and excellent customer service. The ambiance was perfect for the occasion and we'll definitely be back.

A few of our faves: cast iron cornbread, fried bandera quail, and snapper dish.

As Louisiana natives, we are very discriminating about Louisiana cuisine. Eunice did not disappoint. We started with shrimp cocktail and Dan Dan Shrimp- lightly fried shrimp with pickled baby yellow and red peppers and a spicy sauce. My husband had the smoked chicken and sausage gumbo, which had a lovely dark roux as true gumbo should. We had the turkey with all the “fixins” and ended with the pumpkin tart for me and the chocolate fudge cake for him. Everything was wonderful, with tastes of true Louisiana. While we don’t spend over $100 for weekly dinners, many special meals to come will definitely be spent at Eunice. I can’t wait to see what these Louisiana chefs prepare next time.

Great menu. Definitely get the yellow fin tuna and the cornbread oysters. The quail was great too.

Gluten free options are available but not listed on the menu, just ask.

Dinner was so great! Went with a group of six people and ended up ordering almost all of the appetizers. The murder point oysters were a standout. The buratta was also amazing! Service was great. We had to wait a little while for a table even with a reservation but easily got drinks at the bar.

The one star for service is not about the server but about the wait time: attendant appeared 10 minutes after water was served. Food was ok; nothing that I just have to go back there for.

Love it.!!! Food outstanding 👍
Don’t like “one” check. There were 3 of us, husband, wife & friend.
Would be really bad if there were 4 people with different food & expect them to go home & figure out who owes what to who.
