Goode Co.’s New Seafood Restaurant Sets Woodlands Opening Date
The wait for The Woodlands’ new seafood restaurant ends tomorrow. Houston restaurateur Levi Goode will unveil his new project, Goode Co. fishing camp.this Tuesday, May 3.
Located in the former Goode Co. Barbeque space at 8865 Six Pines Dr., Goode Co. Fish Camp is inspired by the Goode family’s fishing cabin near San Luis Pass. Goode recalls trips there with his father, legendary Houston culinary figure Jim Goode, to fish for rockfish, speckled trout and flounder along the shores of Christmas Bay.
“Our trips there together, with my family and friends, reinforced my love for the excitement of fishing and the ritual of coming together to prepare and enjoy a hard-earned meal,” Goode said in a statement. “At the restaurant, we keep the fish camp vibe alive, where oysters open as quickly as beer and fresh catches are enjoyed around great stories.”
Fish Camp represents an evolution of the Gulf Coast-inspired seafood dishes the company serves at Goode Co. Seafood’s two locations. Meals will typically start with oysters: raw, roasted, or served with shrimp, crab sticks, and the company’s signature campechana in a seafood tower. Sandwich choices include seafood po’boys (grilled or fried catfish, oysters or shrimp) as well as a burger and a trendy hot chicken sandwich.
Seafood lovers will find a wide selection of entree choices, including wood-grilled fish camp steak, Texas striped bass with salsa verde, and roasted yellowfin tuna with shrimp. An additional seasonal menu includes crawfish pies, Gulf blue crab macaroni and cheese, and Gulf crab and shrimp fettuccine. For dessert, consider the restaurant’s popular pecan pie with Texas sheet cake, chocolate cream pie, or margarita pie (a twist on lime).
A clear point of differentiation between Goode Co. Seafood and Fish Camp is behind the bar. The new restaurant offers an extensive selection of cocktails including both margaritas and punch by the glass or pitcher, as well as coastal classics like the daiquiri, pina colada, dark and stormy and martini. The popular ranch water cocktail is served as a draft in a Topo Chico bottle. Craft beer and a curated wine list are also available.
In terms of design, look for neon signs and framed photographs of coastal life by photographer Tim Romano. Other details include a marble bar and a covered patio. In total, the restaurant can accommodate 100 people inside and 82 seats on the dog-friendly terrace.
Fish Camp isn’t the company’s only project in development. Last summer, Goode Co. announced the opening of a new restaurant in the former Down House space in the hills. No details on the name or food style have yet been released. The company recently reopened its barbecue restaurant in Northwest Houston.
Founded over 40 years ago, Goode Co. is known for its Texas-inspired dishes. Its restaurants include Goode Co. Seafood, Goode Co. Barbeque, Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina tex-mex restaurant, and Armadillo Palace, a comfort food restaurant and live music venue.
