We beat the crowd by 30-45 minutes, got a window seat to watch ship channel traffic. Sometimes dolphin pods come through with the ships, didn't see any today. Ordered stuffed jalapenos. They are always great, especially when fresh & hot. Fisherman's platter has a little bit of everything. All was great. Service was good, room started to fill after 6:00pm.... More

I'm not going to go in to a long review, because the title says it all. Excellent fried alligator, amazing stuffed jalapenos (w/ crab stuffing), and the best crawfish etoufee around, bar none!

This place is off the beaten path. View is good. Good is excellent. We took our daughter for a celebration. Split blackened redfish. I had a salad.

Homemade cinnamon rolls and yeast rolls to start and could end there because it was so good. Wife's salad was huge with plenty of toppings. My seafood was fresh except for the crab. Highly recommend their fried shrimp.

I had a lunch today (5/3/17) at the Monument Inn and I was very disappointed. The cat fish was OK, but the bread was old and hard. I was expected it should be better the Subway, but unfortunately, it was not. sad!

Thank Truong V
Management response:

I'm sorry our bread didn't impress you, Truong. Our guests have come to love us for our bread -- we would never serve anything that wasn't fresh. I hope you were able to speak with your server. We're always happy to fetch more for you and make sure it's to your liking. - Loreny, Manager More

As the name suggests, the Monument Inn is adjacent to the San Jacinto Battlefield and its Monument. But the Inn deserves credit in its own right. We had GREAT service and got seated quickly even though there were six of us at lunch time. Because the dining room is upstairs, you have a great view of the Ship Channel and... More

Good home cooked seafood and home style cooking that is a must try. Great for family gatherings. The rolls are AMAZING! Feel free to pack a few to go and save for breakfast the following days. They also have banquet space for bigger groups/dinners.

I was in Houston for a business meeting and one person suggested that when we were finished for the day we go see the San Jacinto monument and have dinner at this restaurant.
