Just across the street from Memorial City Mall, West Houston’s bustling Goode Company Seafood is recognized by a large neon sign that can be seen from the Katy Freeway to lure guests in for fresh Gulf Coast seafood.
Expect accomplished frying (oyster po'boys, stuffed crab, shrimp) but equally fine mesquite grilling. In fact, the grilled catfish con salsa verde, topped with buttery onions and avocado pico de gallo, is spot-on. Dinners are generous, served with garlic bread, empanada, seafood rice, red beans, hush puppies or vegetables.
Inside the 8378-square-foot restaurant, guests are greeted by the centrally located raw oyster bar featuring a weekly rotation of fresh Gulf oyster varietals. The large bar evokes the spirit of a fishing boat with its nautical direction placement and maritime terminology carefully displayed along the penny-tiled flooring. The signature Seafood sign from the original location adds a touch of nostalgia and is complemented by a large tarpon, both gracing the wall above the interior kitchen windows that provide a clear view into the bustling kitchen. In addition to the expansive bar, ample tables envelop the room with circular, nautical-inspired banquettes that offers seating for over 200. An outdoor patio seats 40 while an upstairs level for events and corporate functions features a flexible layout for up to 100.
