The food and atmosphere are always wonderful. We decided to try a couple different dishes and both were superb. Do not pass up the crab cakes, they are never a disappointment. And Tuesday nights are half priced drinks. Thank you Main 101!

My husband and I drive from Seabrook, because we love the food and atmosphere so much. I love the lemon butter chicken, I always get it with their amazing risotto, my husband loves their ribeyes. Which they can cook "Pittburgh style"

Originally two of my kids and I set out with Mexican food in mind. We planned to hit a local establishment on the boardwalk where we know one of the hosts. As we approached 146 and the Kemah bridge we found a traffic dilemma as the cars were stacked up as far as we could see to the top of... More

Not on the cheap side but you pay for what you get, perfect place for business, food was delicious, maybe the best option in this town, atmosphere was really sober and cool, I recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a great meal and a great time.

99% sure this is the best place in la Porte both in the quality of food and ambiance. It's a little bit dim inside during lunch but it is a great small place for a business lunch meeting. Food was good - we both had the bistro steak sandwich. Cooked to perfection. The fresh bread was quite good as well.... More

Food is good, although on the pricey side. Wine and beer selection is limited, but they have a bar to make up for that.

We actually drove in from Houston to look around the water and parks. Found this great restaurant. It really surprised us in a good way. The guys got burgers - one of the best they have had they said. I got spinach salad and fish wraps. Awesome! Chef came out to see how we like everything. Five stars
