Landry’s Seafood

While Landry’s is a chain, our local one in The Woodlands is exceptionally good. I’m always surprised by how great it is.  The service and food have both improved in the last few years and is now on my regular rotation. One of my pet peeves is when fish is over cooked.  At Landry’s, they get it right every time.  It is always moist and perfectly cooked.  There are many many kinds of fish to choose from. On a recent visit, there were nine different kinds of fish to choose from. And there are many different ways to prepare them, from fried, broiled, blackened, pan-seared, or grilled.  Once you decide what kind of fish and how prepared, you can select from many delicious sauces.  My favorite is the crawfish etoufee. It is rich and decadent and pairs well with a moist broiled fish.  I also love the firecracker shrimp with its spicy sweet bite. The Melissa topping has shrimp, scallops, crab, and mushrooms.  Entrees are served with a generous helping of salad that is fresh and plentiful. There are many other items besides fish to order.  They have cold water and gulf oysters. Their gumbo is excellent.  They have shrimp and grits, po-boys, all manner of shellfish, salads, and pastas.  The crawfish bread appetizer is totally addictive and a must order.  Landry’s also has an excellent bar and Happy Hour.  I love the happy hour drink and food specials.  The firecracker shrimp and the fried zucchini are always my favorite.  The fish tacos are a close second.  For any seafood you desire, Landry’s is a great place to get your fix.
