Waiting in line during busy time ( around 6:30pm), open seating at bar and a family moved from the outside seating to those seats before we could sit... couldn't get waited on even though we were standing and a few other patrons even pointed at us to the waiters... then he insisted we just give him a drink order even...

I used to go to Captain Tom's before they built the bigger boat (restaurant) and had a client that wanted to go again to try out the new location, which is right down the street from the old one. So we met at 1:00pm last Wednesday. He was there with his 4 y/o daughter when I arrived and they had... More

The guy at the counter who waited on us was super friendly and attentive. The food was super yummy - the gumbo was the best I've ever had, and the shrimp were fresh.

This place gets packed with people and for a very good reason. Fun open atmosphere! Must try the Michelada's DOS XX with a oyster or a shrimp in it!

Just happened to come across Tom's as I was in the area for work. The reviews were spot on! Very old school diner, fast service with top notch eats and cold beer. I travel a lot for work and always look for that "Best kept secret" and I undoubtedly found it in Tom's. It's not a quaint little joint and... More

If you are on business in Houston, down on the south side around the Texan's stadium, you have GOT to stop in here for dinner. Or Lunch. The restaurant is small and tucked into the intersection of Main Street and Old Spanish Trail. From the outside it looks like a restaurant you should avoid at all costs. Dated Neon Signage,... More

Captain Tom's is a place that I'm sure I have seem in some food special on TV. It is a boat shaped oyster bar that also offers good fried seafood options. It is a great place to go to grab a quick casual bite to eat and have a nice cold beer along with it. The quarter's are a little... More

My husband is a self proclaimed "professional shrimp eater" so he knows good shrimp. Captain Tom's has great fried shrimp and everything else. We went to the East Freeway location and walked in to see the boat shaped counter service and figured we keep going. We started with the gumbo. Fantastic! Best I have ever had. I had fried shrimp...

Came here to see if the michelada was really as good as I remembered from about 5 years ago and they are still doing great!!! This restaurant is awesome if you are looking for fresh seafood (shrimp / oyster) or even any fried seafood! Oh and the drink - you know it has to be good if everyone drinking it.... More
