Great Oysters & Lobster – Well huhm........let's start with the positive: The oysters were good, the lobster was very good, and Landry's has put the Ribeye steak back on the menu. Also, the management and waiter were very accomodating in correcting mistakes. However, my wife's Ribeye that she ordered "medium-plus" was delivered blood-rare, inside. My Blackened Redfish Etoufee arrived without the crawfish and sauce, and my daughter's planked salmon was less-than-stellar, judging by my daughter's face, and her meager attempt to eat any of it. I think Landry's should just start by trying to hold onto the current staff, and just work with them on getting things right. The constant change in management and waitstaff, just proliferates the problems. I keep hoping that Landry's will level-out into being an upscale, stable, consistent restaurant. But after 10 years of hoping.........all I can do is to continue to hope. PS: Put the condiments back on the tables. Having to beg and hunt down waitstaff to get condiments is ridiculous.
Eh, Landry's Is Slipping Again – As of 1/26/13; The changed menu no longer offers fresh, whole, stuffed flounder. The ribeye has also be changed to a NY Strip, which my wife sampled. Her steak was dry, tough, and not good quality. The Oysters Rockefeller were good, but the oysters were very tiny. Service was okay, but not great.
bad service!!! – I usually like Landry's but this one was not up to snuff. The bartender didn't seem to care if we were there or not. The hostess was out of it. The waiter we got was sweaty, snotty, and just down right rude. The food was just like any other Landry's......yada, yada, yada..... The view is unbelievable. So I give them one star for the view.
Worst Landy's that I have been too! – We were in Kemah for the weekend, and we were enjoying some fantastic spaghetti at The Terrace Cafe for lunch, and we asked the owner where we could go for good seafood for dinner. He suggested Landry's, The Flying Dutchman, or Red Sushi. We tried Landry's and the food was ok, but our waiter, A. J. , was stuffy and rude. I felt like we were putting him out when we asked for something. The view was awesome and the decor was warm and cozy......but the service was no better than a Denny's.
Scrumtuous! – Landry's has really improved over the last couple of years. They serve the best stuffed flounder I have had in many years. They also make the best oysters rockefeller of any restaurant in town. While service can still sometimes be hit and miss, it has shown some overall improvement. For great seafood and a wonderful view of Galveston Bay, this is the place! We're hoping that Gulf Oysters make a return soon, following the BP Oil disaster in the Gulf. Until then, the Blue Point oysters that are now being served, are the next best thing.
Great seafood!!! – It's about a 35-40 minute drive for us + the wait once you get there but it is well worth it! We've had the Stuffed Shrimp Enbrochette to start with. Mmm...to lick your fingers! My fav seafood is shrimp so I get the Jumbo Shrimp Platter which has shrimp cooked 4 different ways. I love this plate! I haven't tried their dessert but I have tried their Bloody Mary and Cosmopolitan, and they're good. If you can get a seat by the window at night it has a romantic feel to dinner.
Agreed! – This restaurant is sooo goo and i agree with wade then he said "Landry's makes the best Oysters Rockefeller I have tasted anywhere in Houston. Order a dozen and try them for yourself. They have made a grand reopening, following Hurricane Ike, and are doing better than ever. We love having a leisurely dinner here while watching Galveston Bay and the boats. Try a glass of wine, some oysters, maybe the lobster bisque or shrimp cocktail, then make your way to a main entree. The lobster tais here are downright insiring; they broil them with butter until they come out fluffy and hot, then serve them with melted clarified butter." This place has amazing food and oysters! Best restaurant in Kemah!!!!! ENJOY!!! O YES and i want to make it aware that wade's comment for polo's signature was deleted because polo's didn't like the comment! so
If you see this i am saying accept what people say!! The Service was sukkish!! REFEGES!!!!!! ACCEPT IT!
What an enjoyable dining experience – We ate again at Landrys at Kemah. The experience was very good. First of all, we request a table outside on the water. Many people don't know that the channel from Clear Lake is the only one leading to the bay. The boats have to down here and you get to watch them from your perch (table). The boats navigate down the "wake-free" zone and at the Landrys point, they can "gun-it"!!! Great way to enjoy a seafood meal. Landry provides unlimited salad with entrees. You simply ask for more if you wish. You also get complimentary garlic bread if you ask. There is a special off-the-menu appitizer that feeds 5-6 people for $20-something dollars. It had fried fish, onion rings, fried jalapenos, french fries, fried mushrooms, and MORE. You HAVE to have a lot of people to eat it. Every fish plate we have ordered has been good, especially the grilled salmon. But, it you order a shrimp or oyster poor boy, it does not come with the comp. salad. Then stroll the boardwalk and walk off the feast!!! But, when we went they started charging $6-$7.00 for parking. Add this to the gas prices to drive there and you might want to eat more locally. Reservations ARE recommended. There was a one-hour wait when we went for those who didn't pre-plan with reservations, and this was on a regular non-holiday night.
This upscale seafood chain has a stunning view of the Bay. – In Short
Donning the walls are antique signs and other memorabilia striving for--and almost achieving--a nostalgic feel. The menu is familiar: good seafood, not gourmet, but old favorites just the same. Shrimp are broiled, fried, stuffed and chilled. Salmon and mahi mahi are just a few of the fish you can top with a selection of sauces.
best seafood for a reasonable price – conveniently located on the kemah boardwalk with a touch of cozy seafaring, laid-back decor ... this is a great place to dine with friends or for a romantic dinner for you next to a wonderful view of the gulf. a very popular restaurant and rightly so, the seafood is decently priced, reflecting the quality. surely won't disappoint.*
