As the name suggests, the Monument Inn is adjacent to the San Jacinto Battlefield and its Monument. But the Inn deserves credit in its own right. We had GREAT service and got seated quickly even though there were six of us at lunch time. Because the dining room is upstairs, you have a great view of the Ship Channel and... More

Good home cooked seafood and home style cooking that is a must try. Great for family gatherings. The rolls are AMAZING! Feel free to pack a few to go and save for breakfast the following days. They also have banquet space for bigger groups/dinners.

I was in Houston for a business meeting and one person suggested that when we were finished for the day we go see the San Jacinto monument and have dinner at this restaurant. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they had and my oysters were perfect. There were 15 of us and the waiter was efficient and didn't make a single... More

Lunch crowd was growing as we arrived at 11:15 with both locals and tourists. The Shrimp Peaux Boy filled the plate including great French bread, lettuce, tomatoes and French fries. The bowl of Shrimp Scampi had plump garlicky shrimp over linguini. The sauce was a little more seafood tasting than buttery shrimp tasting. But it was good. Both dishes were... More

This is our go to place for out of town visitors or celebrations. It's my favorite seafood restaurant ever. And the cinnamon rolls are to die for! The only thing that's ever been disappointing was the onion rings. They were frozen. Everything else is flawless and we love watching the tugs go up and down the channel.

Have always like this place over the years but we took my mother in law here for her 85th birthday and was disappointed. The waitress was friendly but not very attentive during a slow time.

It's a shame your last visit didn't live up to your previous experiences with us. Especially on your mother's birthday, we're sorry to have dropped the ball with our attentiveness. We take cleanliness very seriously, so I appreciate you letting us know about the elevator. We'll work harder to make sure you're more impressed next time. - Loreny, Manager More

We found this hidden gem by accident, and boy, were we glad! The food was terrific--fried Gulf Coast seafood with to-die-for cinnamon raisin rolls that could have been a meal on their own. The view was INCREDIBLE. A front row seat to passing ships, barges and tugs. LOVED this place. The service was also great!

Specializing in fresh Gulf Coast seafood, we've become one of Houston's most popular restaurants. In fact, we serve about 80,000 pounds of shrimp and almost 25,000 pounds of catfish, crawfish, and fresh fish every year! If you're in the mood for something fresh from the water, check out our popular Fisherman's Platter with its shrimp, oysters, catfish, stuffed shrimp, and stuffed crab. But guests also love our wide array of pastas, beef, and chicken dishes. And be sure to top it all off with a drink from our full bar!
