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.

Following a plant based diet, I'm consistently impressed with Eunice and the chef's ability and willingness to create something special for me. I never feel like I'm getting anything less than other diners. The flavors and textures and presentation are all top notch. Thank you!

One of my new favorite restaurants in Houston. The food is delicious and ample, the restaurant is sleek and clean. Prices are a bit higher than I would like, but you do get good value for the dollars you spend. I highly recommend this place

Amazing food. Amazing service. This was my second time at Eunice and although it's nearly 45min from my house and office, I'll be back again and again.

Absolutely great meal - amazing duck poppers, drum, and sprouts. We loved everything those were just the most mentionable. Oh and the bread pudding was amazing. Service dragged a bit as they seemed slightly understaffed, but that is entirely forgivable under the circumstances. We will definitely be back!

I was looking for a "taste of home" on Thanksgiving Day and I found it at Eunice. The service was exceptional as were the fresh oysters. My husband was impressed by the Drum entree and that is a high compliment from someone that has caught and prepared his own fish from childhood in Florida to living in Southwest Louisiana.
I loved the ambiance and the outdoor seating that was available.
The staff seemed relaxed and happy to serve even though it was a holiday.
Its worth the money for a special day out.

Best restaurant in Eunice. Chef/Owner Drake Leonard’s after receiving John Folse culinary degree, spent at least 6 as chef in New Orleans , New York, and Black Forest of Germany. Now combining all those flavors with his Cajun Heritage.

It’s the go to place in Houston

Beautiful setting, lots of outdoor seating. The lunch specials are a real bargain. Food is carefully prepared and nicely presented. My only complaint is that it's way too mild. Putting a bottle of Tabasco on the table does not compensate for the absence of depth. Still, I'll go back.

Wow! Energetic atmosphere, outstanding service, even better food. The location can be a little confusing, look straight ahead as you pull in from the street. My bartender had an excellent knowledge of his craft as well as the food menu. Oysters were shucked perfectly, with a selection from the East Coast and Gulf. The Shrimp Etouffee was unique, but a fantastic take on the traditional dish. The seasonal pumpkin dessert was equally delicious. A must visit!

Food was Great! One of the shareables weren’t served with even nearly enough bread. More was requested and we were charged and additional $6 which was definitely excessive. Other than that the food was good for the most part and the service was great.

Loved Eunice, came for some fresh Gulf oysters, but had a very nice impression with the rest of the food, Shrimp and grits, gumbo and others. Reasonably priced. The ambience is excellent. Definitely will come back.

Love their shrimp etouffee, their appetizers, and the broccoline. So easy to talk and visit there. You do not have an extra noise level like some places and you do not hear conversation from other tables. Also, we traveled a little distance to meet friends. Since we had not seen the friends in a while, we had a lot to discuss. They did not rush us or make us feel like we were holding them up. We were the last to leave for lunch that day. Recommend this place highly.

Flounder was on menu however when I ordered it they were out. I think the wait staff should inform patrons if they are out of certain foods. Finally, upon leaving the establishment I see the table adjacent to our table and there was someone with the flounder and that table ordered after we did. Go figure...???

The chicken & sausage gumbo was a big disappointment. With a Louisiana trained chef/owner, you expect better. The patio is in a beautiful setting with mature, spreading trees between the patio and the street, but the patio is unattractive and bare. There are no umbrellas, awnings, pot plants and the patio furniture Is unattractive....huge missed opportunity.
