      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Recommended Posts

The Seaffod Palace is my favorite. It's on the water, in Seaffodsville, on Seaffod Street.

 

Right across from Seaffod Hospital..... :lol:

Really Rick? :P

Papadeaux is good chain stuff/not special, Landry's on the island is consistant, Clearys (sp?) for oysters in season, couple of places in the strand; saltwater grill, Rudy and Paco's (central american food, but does great fresh catch), not sure if M&M at the palms on 21st ever re-opened. Yagas for good and casual food.

You might try the Flying Dutchman on the Kemah Boardwalk.

 

Or, if you want an Asian influence with your fish, go to Merlion on 4th in Seabrook.

I see now it is date night. Skip the chains and go local.

No No NO NOOOO!

 

A little bit out of the way, but you want to go to the Topwater Grill in San Leon or Hillman's Original Fish House in Dickenson.

 

Trust me on this one.

We are going to top water grill. Hillmans isn't pulling up on urbanspoon

Enjoy!

 

And remember, the advice you received here was worth exactly what you paid for it...

 

Seriously though, I've never had a bad experience there at all.

really all the way to the gulf and you're going to eat off the shelf / frozen crap...

 

The ONLY place to go is Outriggers... it's under the bridge at the south end of clear lake next to the channel to the bay... and when I mean under, I mean under...

 

btw , you can run your dinghy right up to their dock if you so please... parking is tight and its very popular with everyone... flip flops, shorts, and a t-shirt is all that's needed..

Topwater was perfect. It is out of the way and all by itself but aside from great food, all the sport fishing activity made it very interesting.

Just saw this thread and another vote for Topwater and Hillman's. Landry's is consistent all right - overpriced and over hyped as are all those owned by Tillman Fertitta.

 

Another place that friends rave over is Gilhooley's, not far from Topwater. My personal experience has been mixed.

 

And as long as we are talking about Clear Lake (well now we are) a new place Cock and Bull just opened on Nasa1. Still under construction so seating is limited. Great selection of beers and people who know what they are. I've managed to hurt myself in beer edification class.

A modest hijack, but if you are ever headed south, the best seafood I've ever had.......anywhere......is King's Inn in Loyola Beach, South of Kingsville, about an hour or so from Corpus Christi

 

Next time you and friends are in Corpus Christi and have the energy, take a crowd. They serve family style and you'll want to try some of everything. Trust me on this one!

It's not really in the geographic parameters of the original post, but if you find youself at the West end of Galveston, head over the San Luis Pass causeway to Freeport.

 

The Red Snapper Inn is great.
