It is hard to beat a trip to Monument Inn on a pretty Texas afternoon. The restaurant is located along the waterways of the Houston Ship channel, and there are large windows that offer up-close views of the barges and ships passing by. The food is plentiful (they even have an "All you can eat" option) and well cooked; the... More

There was the six of us hungry diners descending upon this establishment. Our hosts warned us about the quantities that you get if you order their All You Can Eat. Raw oysters on a half shell on a platter of ice and large cooked shell-on shrimp for the first round. Fried oysters, shrimp, fried stuffed crab, fried catfish, and French... More

A 5-star review means there are signature dishes worth to die for...and The Monument Inn has them. From Battered Shrimp to Shrimp Creole to Shrimp Cocktails you can wend your way through anything else on the menu and leave happy and content. To finish it off, their signature Cinnamon Rolls - ummm - can I say they two-up Cinnabon's?? The... More

It has been two years since we ate here last, but this was once again an amazing lunch! The seafood is so fresh, and you can't beat the bread basket full of hot sweet buns. I don't think they have anything bad on the menu, but then again, we haven't sampled everything! I love sitting by the windows and enjoying... More

We decided on a whim to drive about an hour to experience this restaurant per a friends recommendation. I was not disappointed in the food. Price - about average for a decent seafood restaurant. Service - our service was a little slow but we noticed service at other tables was faster. Maybe our waitress was having an off day. We... More

Excellent gulf coast seafood with interesting views of ships traversing Houston Ship channel. Large open room so might be noisy when room is full. We were there at slow time in mid-afternoon and it was quiet and pleasant. Our group all order seafood, so have no comments on the many non-seafood items on the menu.

Anytime we visit the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Texas, we always stop by for lunch. Food and service is always great. Seafood is always fresh.

For over 25 years, Monument Inn has been your destination to share family traditions and special occasions with great food and a great atmosphere! Specializing in fresh Gulf Coast seafood, we've become one of Houston's most popular restaurants. In fact, we serve about 80,000 pounds of shrimp and almost 25,000 pounds of catfish, crawfish, and fresh fish every year! If you're in the mood for something fresh from the water, check out our popular Fisherman's Platter with its shrimp, oysters, catfish, stuffed shrimp, and stuffed crab. But guests also love our wide array of pastas, beef, and chicken dishes. And be sure to top it all off with a drink from our full bar! Whether it's business luncheons, meeting with friends, or special occasions, thank you for making Monument Inn your place to make memories!
