Should you find yourself in Seabrook, the Houston suburb now has an exciting new dining option – one you might recognize. A sibling of Tookie’s Burgers, Tookie’s Seafood is now serving up fresh Gulf catches at 1106 Bayport Blvd.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the new addition to Seabrook’s dining scene kicked open the doors last week. The restaurant occupies a massive 12,000 square foot space, which includes a large patio and “shuck room,” where diners can watch their raw oysters on the half-shell cracked open live and in person.
Also on the menu are six different types of grilled oysters topped with everything from lime juice and pico de gallo to bacon and cheese. Gumbo, po’boys will also be on offer, in addition to the freshly-caught Gulf redfish, snapper, and more fruits of the sea that will be grilled over wood.
Cocktails include a selection of coconut and watermelon infused margaritas and the Jack & Diane, a sweet and boozy concoction mixed with Jack Daniel’s honey whiskey and Absolut pear vodka. Beer will be available on draft and by the bottle in addition to a selection of wines by the glass.
As an added bonus, you can rest assured that all those oyster shells you slurp from are going to a good cause. Tookie’s Seafood donates their spent shells to the Galveston Bay Foundation to be recycled back into the ocean to help maintain healthy oyster populations. The more you know.
