Seafood
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.

Dining room is way too loud even to hear normal conservation. Not conducive to meetings etc. Food is excellent.

Went with my wife and her parents along with our son.
We were seated promptly and service was great... It was a little lacking during the meal but they were really busy.
The food definitely was spot on. Very delicious and one of my favorite seafood spots.
Great atmosphere.... Definitely going back

The service was great. The food delicious, I would have liked a few more fresh selections.
The drinks were mixed perfect. The noise level was a bit high, but from talking not music.
I would recommend.

For high quality seafood meals at reasonable prices this is a wonderful restaurant. I ordered the baked red snapper (delicious) while my partner enjoyed the mesquite grilled chicken. Both were very good. My only reason for holding back on 5-stars is their bread is meh (tastes like white bread with just a small dab of garlic butter on it) and I have found their mesquite grilling can impart a taste like lighter fluid (she did not notice it this time).

Goode Co Kitchen and Cantina continues to excel above its peers. All food is well made and often includes some unique detail to make it all better then the usual. That must be why we keep coming back.

Love the vibe of this restaurant. Came at 5pm on a Saturday so easy parking. Caught the tail end of happy hour! Casual and comfortable. And that huge ship propeller was fun to see. Food was very good.

Goode Co Seafood always delivers high quality seafood with great efficiency and excellent service -- we had the restaurant weeks menu on a busy Friday night, and that was our most recent experience at the restaurant. The place was busy, but neither the kitchen nor the service missed a beat. Goode Co consistently delivers.

Would love to see them add a few more craft beers to the menu -- especially from local brewers -- and the dining room can get a little loud, but those are just observations, not complaints. We enjoyed this visit! Goode Co is a Houston institution, and deservedly so.

I would recommend this restaurant to a friend only after advising them that, although the food is excellent, the portion sizes versus the price seems out of balance. The prices will keep us from eating there very often. One other downside was that it was so loud we had a hard time carrying on a conversation.

Food is always great - service hit or miss. This time the restaurant was almost empty and it took FOREVER. I'm believe this was a kitchen issue. We arrived for a 6:45 reservation, ordered quickly and did not receive our food until about 7:35 or later. Took at least 30 minutes to receive salads then additional time for entrees.

The restaurant was really crowded and loud. This is likely because I attended during Houston Restaurant week. I ordered off of the regular menu. The food was ok. The waiter tried his best in managing such a large crowd. The gumbo was more like etouffee.

We went for my wife’s birthday dinner on a Saturday night after making 6:30 reservations on Open Table. We were seated almost immediately upon arrival and greeted by a server shortly thereafter. Drinks were served quickly and food came in a timely fashion as well. The food was served hot and tasted terrific. If you like shrimp, you’re in luck because it was the most prevalent dish on the menu in all its forms. My wife had the bacon wrapped shrimp, I had grilled redfish and my daughter had fried catfish. All were first rate, as was the triple chocolate cake we shared for dessert. The price was reasonable for what we got and we’ll definitely return soon.

Wasn't as good as in the past. My husband's flounder was bland, and my son's etouffee was so-so. We usually go there to eat red fish, but tried something new. Will stick with the red fish from now on.

Our waiter Mel was very, very good. Completely professional and very attentive without being demanding. He was personable and very knowledgeable also. The food was delicious and the fish was prepared correctly - not overdone and dry like so many other places. Hats off to the chefs!

My family has always enjoyed the exquisite seafood of Goode Company Seafood on the Katy Freeway. I had the seafood platter served with a delicious seafood empanada and I wife had the salmon. We could not have had a more delicious seafood experience.

A friend and I went for Houston restaurant week and it was our first time eating there so we were really excited but it just wasn’t what I was expecting. Maybe it was just a fluke for me,id try it again,but would get something different.

Food and service is always good at Goode Company Seafood. Prior to dinner we sat in the bar for 'happy hour'. We asked for red wine and the server told us of the red wine offerings for 'happy hour'. We had a total of four glasses of wine. The bill $72!! Now, its my fault because I failed to ask the price before ordering. So the 'happy hour' red blend was $18 / glass. Outrageous. The bar bill was actually higher than our meal. Bottom line, yes I would recommend Goode Company Seafood just be sure to ask the prices before ordering at the bar. If you're meeting friends before dinner you may want to look elsewhere and show up for a good meal here.
