Not a lot of choices, swap shack, LJ Seafood and red lobster actually in LJ. La serenita on your way to surfside is supposed to be pretty good but havenít tried it. Hooks has a cool atmosphere right on the water but I donít think the food is special and the menu is pretty limited.

Not a whole bunch of options in Lake Jackson. Lake Jackson Seafood and Swamp Shack is about it in town. If you head towards Surfside, Dorado’s Dive Club, Hooks, Beachfront Deck Bar, Seahorse, and The Red Snapper Inn. We really like Beachfront, it’s right on the water, good food and drinks.

Donít know how it compares, but a good buddy lived in LJ for 5-6 years. When I went to LJ to visit he took me to Pier 31 (I think) a few miles away, and it was fantastic.

Not in LJ, but I always liked Dido's on the San Bernard. 2922 CR 519 Brazoria.

Dido's (Brazoria/Churchill area) was always good when I lived in the area (grew up in the area), but I haven't been there in 25 years so can't say now. I do still like to go to Red Snapper Inn at Surfside. They've been pretty consistent for the last 30+ years. Also try On The River in Freeport, if for nothing more than their cornbread and coleslaw.

We got a house on the Bernard, Didoís has been junk for a while now, it has changed ownership multiple times over the last several years. On The River isnít much better. The Swamp Shack is a revamp of their failed River Pointe but it seems to have better food.

We just celebrated tonight our 10th anniversary at the Red Snapper Inn at Surfside and it was very good.

Can’t remember the name of the place because it was 30 years ago, may not even be there anymore but there was a good seafood restaurant we used to frequent quite a bit in Oyster Bayou. Right in the bayou matter of fact.

You are correct about RL. I have a $100 gift card for years and still have it.

Oyster Creek? Maybe Windswept? Was really good. Had a fire and was closed probably 15 or more years ago.

I don't know how good Hooks is but Cole is pretty good. I've been wanting to go over when he is playing there on a Sunday and check it out.

Windswept sounds familiar. We lived in Clute from 89-92 so thatís how long ago itís been.

Red Snapper Inn at Surfside and in Angleton Honeres is another great place. Their boiled shrimp, boudin balls and the fried catfish are always spot on.

Talking with my brother who lives in Angleton a bit ago, he agrees with this.
