We have been going to Goode Company Seafood for years. We originally went to the Westpark location when we lived closer to that side of town. Then we moved to the west side and did not go as often, because it was farther away. Then the Katy Freeway location opened up and we were elated! I can honestly say, that... More

I have eaten here twice with large groups over the past few years, and I have never been disappointed. The service is good, the food is fairly priced (for a somewhat upscale restaurant), and the overall experience is very pleasant.

Seafood at its very best! It's a typical seafood restaurant. We both chose something different. I tried the Fried Shrimp which was excellent as was the tartar sauce. My colleague opted for the had the Mesquite catfish with the shrimp etouffee and seafood rice, You really cannot fault the food, the tastes are unsurpassed. They do have a great menu,... More

Excellent seafood lunch. Well prepared, good service, slighty pricy. We return over and over and it has always been as good as the last time. Sets a good standard for business lunches and dinners.

Company in town and after a bit of shopping we stopped into Goode Co, Seafood mid-afternoon for a respite. After some great service, wonderful appetizers and cold, delicious beverages we were on a way for some more Houston adventures. Strongly suggest you give them a try if you have not already done so.

We have always had good food and good service but this was an off day, and my birthday to boot. The young waiter was arrogant and not terribly interested in his job. We had to ask twice for lemon and bread plates. My food was not good. The fried oysters were not fresh. The grilled shrimp was marinated but not... More

My wife and I stopped by last night for happy hour and had their Campechana with our drinks as an appetizer. The Campechana is always great. We decided to stay and order dinner and this is where things changed. My wife ordered the baked stuffed crab, which as noted in an earlier review was stuffed with breading and corn, but... More

A very nice meal out with our friends and hosts - always a surprise for us Brits to go to a restaurant in a mall by a highway - but this was a gem. Fab fresh oysters were wonderful as was the rest of the meal.... Not overly pricey for Houston. Worth a visit.

Description
One of five children, Jim Goode was born and raised along the Texas Gulf Coast. His father was a shift worker at a nearby refinery and his mother spent her time taking care of things at home. Most weekends, you could find the whole family at the local area beaches where the kids spent their time fishing, crabbing and playing in the surf. Jim loves this way of life and he especially loves the food. So in an effort to combine his fondness for the roadside diners that dot the Texas and Louisiana coastline with his love for the region's seafood, Jim began to explore how he could translate his passions into a dining experience that would ultimately bear the family name. In 1986, he located a passenger train car that looked like it would fit the bill. He negotiated its purchase and moved it to its current location on Westpark. A few months later, Goode Company Seafood was born.The concept was to grill fresh seafood over mesquite, or fry it in refined oil with a thin batter. So, while you'll find signature dishes like campechanas, seafood gumbo and whole stuffed flounder on the menu, you won't find sauces or heavy layers of breading to mask the flavor of the fish. And if something isn't in season, you won't find it on the menu.
