Seafood Restaurants in El Campo

Select Local Merchants

The Fish Place's chefs use a simple recipe for all their dishes: fresh seafood and Cajun spices. Of course, there's a lot of variety to be found within those parameters. They boil shellfish in the hearty broths of gumbos and etouffes, and fry up catfish and oysters with hot Cajun flavors. Fish and shrimp are stuffed full of cheese and other delicious tidbits. Most courses are served with Southern-style sides, ranging from the iconic red beans and white rice to hush puppies.

According to one estimate, seafood that's been left in the sun for more than 79 days will taste markedly worse than fresh seafood. Feast on freshly prepared seafood with today's Groupon, offering $30 worth of authentic Cajun eats and drinks at Orleans Seafood Kitchen for $15. This authentic eatery is located in Katy, less than 30 minutes outside of Houston, and boasts a thriving bar scene, freshly made sauces, and weekly events.

Jackson Market Fresh Seafood's rotating menu relies on what nearby fishermen can ensnare in their nets, which often includes both freshwater and saltwater crustaceans such as crawfish and blue crabs. Once captured and cleaned, the seafood appears fried on top of po' boy rolls, barbecued on specialty platters, and grilled in baskets alongside fries and sides of butter sauce. Creole-inspired soups and gumbos can be purchased as single servings or by the gallon for filling troughs at seals-only cafeterias.

Blu Water snatches piscine fare fresh from the water before transforming it into the dishes that populate its swiftly served menu. Veggie-centric selections star the grilled-salmon salad, in which strips of succulent salmon, surrounded by grape tomatoes and sweet peppers, lay upon field greens and spot familiar shapes in the clouds above. Pairs swap nibbles from a duet of tacos, made from grilled or panko-breaded fish or shrimp resting in the curves of corn and flour tortillas made in-house daily. Punch dishes with extra flavor from 14 scratch-made sauces, spanning the gamut of spiciness with flavors from mild southwest pesto to fiery mango habanero. A triumvirate of rice bowls blends salmon, cod, shrimp, or chicken into Asian or Cajun flavors. Any taco or sandwich selection, including the shrimp po boy, can transform into a combo meal by stepping into a phone booth, tearing off its business suit, and emerging with a drink and a side. Finally, triangular desserts such as lemon cheesecake play a sugary coda to the aquatic meal.

A native of Taiwan and veteran chef with more than 20 years of experience, Redfish Seafood chef David Chang whips up a culinary cornucopia of fresh seafood dishes that borrow from his experiences working in French, Chinese, and Japanese kitchens. Fresh grouper and bacon-wrapped scallops get a tropical spin thanks to a drizzle of key lime sauce, while parmesan dusted sea bass soaks up the salty notes of a miso reduction. Hot rocks shrimp and stuffed mushrooms provide a poppable prelude to a savory seafood dinner and lobster bisque or gumbo fill the spoons of lads and ladies who lunch. As guests gobble down forkfuls of fresh fish, their eyes take in an ambiance inspired by their own patronage. The second floor of the restaurant showcases a wall mural composed by frequent customer and local artist Ray Shipman, who painted whimsical caricatures of Redfish Seafood regulars. At the second location in Cypress, an aquarium designed and build by chef David himself sets a maritime mood and dazzles diners with its collection of eye-catching fish and their spot-on Don Knotts impersonations.

The Burger Bar stockpiles fine meats, cheeses, and toppings so that diners can create their own sandwich masterpieces. The menu promises hunger-fighters the ability to load a bun with such patties as ground beef ($6–$9), buffalo meat ($8–$13) and portobello ($5–$7). Like a sloppy nacho-loving James Bond, burgers dress in a neat tuxedo of cheese (one slice included, $.75/extra slice), including smoked cheddar, texas goat, and pepper jack. Toppings such as jalapeños, bacon, and avocado (one topping included, $1.50/extra topping) crown majestic meat towers, only to be rained upon by torrents of garlic or bacon aioli, violet-mustard cream, or smoked-chipotle ketchup. Diners can pair a sirloin sandwich with grilled vegetables ($3.50) for a dose of daily nutrients so they don’t have to get their vitamins by devouring old tapes of The Flintstones.
