We have an ELEVATOR also for your convenience.” Bar: “We have a full bar with specialty drinks. So far, the Coconut Margarita is our No. 1 specialty drink. We have 25 beers on tap including local microbrews and the regular macros also.”

What sets you apart: “Tookie’s Seafood is a family-owned restaurant. Owned by a local family. All managers are from this area. Tookie’s Seafood is a unique restaurant unlike any restaurant in the world. The decor is that of a beach cabin. Seabrook, Texas, is the Seafood Capital of Texas, and we are the only restaurant in Seabrook that utilizes the resources of the area, serving local oysters whenever available, fresh fish caught in the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf shrimp. Since we have an open kitchen, you can see our cooks and chefs creating your dishes. We utilize a mesquite grill, which imparts smokiness into the fish and shrimp to make a wonderful dining experience. We make everything from scratch every day. Thanks for eatin’ here!”
