Gluten free pizza, rotating menu, beautiful patio, no reservations (grab a cocktail while you wait)
The Captain's Chicken (inspired by Captian Crunch himself 😜) really stood out to me! Their rosemary bread is also hard to put down!!
Chopped Blu Rocked
The short rib is really good.
The steak, the cheese plate, the Captin's chicken, and the Rail Dog are all good.

The Karbach Rail Dog does not get as much attention as the yummy Captin's Chicken, but it is filling akaushi deliciousness!
The $30 steak was cooked to absolute perfection and was very fairly priced given the high quality. It needs no steak sauce, but the included steak sauce was flippin’ fantastic.
The shrimp and grits are pretty much to die for.
Great place, small, hard to find, has ample parking, staff is nice...would visit again
The waiters were assembling their napkins and silverware over an open trash can. Left the pile of napkins on a box balanced on the trash can rim. In plain view of customers!
This place doesn't look like much from the front, but the menu and beer/wine pairings are very well done. The food was great and this place would definitely get 5 stars!
Try the Chopped Bleu salad! It has juicy apples, pecans and red onions! Add some bacon and romaine and suddenly you have a salad that rivals your entrée.
DO NOT get the fries... without truffle oil! OMFG. I just want to smash them against my face. And the fried chicken is slap yo' mama worthy.
Farmers Crop Pile is awesome (and paleo!)
Salad lovers: try the chopped bleu!
Fabulous! Bruschetta with hummus was bursting with fresh flavor. Loved loved loved the shrimp and grits. Creamed corn was savored. Will be back again.
Tough to choose between their fabulous chopped Bleu and yummy shrimp & grits.
http://ZelkoBistro.com | Jaime Zelko (ex-Exec Chef at Bistro Lancaster) & Jeb Stuart nailed the concept of a comfortable but upscale neighborhood place. A deft touch in the kitchen + great room = GO!
They have awesome service!
People, this is not a kid restaurant.
Ask for Josh.

Outside dining area is perfect if you don't like the noisy indoors.
Nice craft beer selection plus a great wine list. Special wine list of female winemakers. Yum!
Try the Salad
The parm fries can't be missed!
Nice relaxing atmosphere and a variety of food selections! Worth a stop
Zelko seats about 50 people and has a no reservations policy. We recommend grabbing a spot at the bar or coming in at off-peak times.
Houston Press We Love Food - favorite Houston dishes - Captin's fried chicken
Excellent grouper fish dish, and good ambiance, with a decent wine list. Gem!
The bah-hah tacos are to DIE for.
Get the Captain Crunch Chicken and Waffles. Your mouth with thank you :)
One of the hardest things to find in Houston is a BRUNCH on saturdays. The only harder thing to find is the actual restaurant.
Meatloaf was delish! Parmesan fries didn't last long. :)
Best restaurant wine list
nice craft brew selection. way too much food for their slow food aspirations. captin chix was good but i like Katz fried chix better. no pub wifi 4 a biz that warns you theres no cell reception. dumb!
Meatloaf in a can - yum !
Short ribs yum, chicken yum, vino yum
Great food tucked away in the Heights. One of my favorite spots.
Captains Chicken is da bomb !
foursquare users: be sure to check-in here before entering - 3G signal is very weak (perhaps because of metal roof).
Fish tacos are so good. For the guilt factor, try the funnel cake. Well worth the calories.
