Casual seafood lunch Pensacola--any updated recs?

McGuire's sounds like fun, but we're really hankering for local seafood. We are on a flexible schedule, so we can easily drive 15-20 minutes off the beaten path for good oysters/shrimp...any suggestions for that?

Casual seafood lunch Pensacola--any updated recs?

We'll be driving through Pensacola in July, and are hoping for a very casual seafood lunch. I searched the boards, but the majority of reviews are old (saw one for JW'S INTRACOASTAL GRILL which sounded ideal, but then found the obituary of the owner dated 2009...sad). What can you recommend? We're two adults who've grown up on gulf coast seafood and are always looking for the next great plate.

Thank you!

Karl's at the Riverbend in Richmond?

Karl's has been suggested for a special dinner for our family as an alternative to Lynn's Steakhouse. Any thoughts or input?

Thanks in advance!

Houston private dining--nice, retro?

We thought of that, too...but I don't think they have a private room. We have had several family parties there, but always in the main dining room. I'll double-check, though.

Houston private dining--nice, retro?

Rainbow Lodge is moving to the old site of La Tour d'Argent on Ella. On the phone, they mentioned that they've already moved the bar over there. Online, I found mention that they will complete the move as of December 1, with private parties and an opening in November.

I'll check out Mandola's Gulf Coast Kitchen and Mark's...thanks!

Houston private dining--nice, retro?

Ready for a puzzle?

My in-laws are in their 80's, and we're trying to pick a restaurant for a special birthday dinner We're a party of 12 - 16 adults, most not terribly adventurous eaters, several wine lovers, steak and or seafood, private room to keep the background noise down, approximately $80 pp before drinks, tip and tax. Our last one was at Brennan's, and it was perfect...at $130 per person, all inclusive.

They're native Houstonians, so we'd like it to be something special, specific to Houston/Gulf Coast. We considered Brenner's (in spite of the Landry's link), but their room minimum is $2800 before tip and tax, not unlike Capital Grille's at $2500. We looked into Rainbow Lodge, but they are moving between now and December, and we're just not sure what to expect at the new location. We are considering Lynn's or Ruth's Chris, but would welcome any other suggestions.

We'll be traveling from Katy, The Woodlands, West U, Alief, Westbury, Sugar Land...and Orlando, so we're pretty flexible about the location.

Any suggestions?

HOU: Mason Road-ish Recs?

El Jarrito has moved to a free-standing building on Highland Knoll, east of Mason Road...their service is worse than ever, and the food just isn't worth suffering through the service. We go to Cazadore's (Pin Oak/Katy Flewellyn (sp), southwest of Katy Mills mall, for our inexpensive, family owned texmex fix.

crab house, near Arlington

Steve, thanks for the redirect. Down on the gulf coast, we often boil 'em, but steamed was what I was seeking. I sure do appreciate you taking the time to respond, and found the discussion extremely helpful!

We'll be visiting DC in July, staying in Crystal City, and are seeking boiled crab, casual atmosphere. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
