    Tip: order the oysters, catfish, crawfish, or anything else on the bar menu during happy hour. Owners Dan and Kyle have come a long way since I met them at 8 years old, and then high school at SJCP.

    Wonderful happy hour, Blake was attentive and informative. Best oysters we have ever had in Houston. Seasonal menu had lots of tempting affordable dishes, we indulged and had the Pablo Crab soup.

    The Oysters Kyle are surprisingly yummy. Similar to mussels in white wine, butter, herbs, and garlic (Provençal) served up North, however, the meatiness of the Gulf oysters are so delicious.

    Best fried oysters ever. Perfectly battered. You can taste the separation between the battered shell and the freshly cooked meat of the oyster. Delicious!

    Danton Nix isn't Cajun, but you'd never know it from his spot-on Cajun and Creole dishes at his namesake restaurant. Read more

    $5.25/doz oysters are the bomb. Gumbo, not so much. Whoever said they were the best in Houston is on crack. Not chunky enough, weird dark brown color, super salty, also had this potent bitter flavor.

    Creme brûlée is delicious! A must get! They also have 1/2 portions of many grilled classic options.

    Get the Oysters Dan! Indulgent, but split and feel virtuous. Oysters with lump crab on top? Yes, please.

    Calamari was excellent, desserts were delicious, however, the entree was not presented good enough.The server assigned to us was horribly rude and offensive!he was aggressive while taking the orders..

    The trout is awesome but the crab Danton is to live for. I will try the gumbo next time.
