Landry's Seafood House

He: The only other Landry's restaurant I have eaten at is Joe's Crab Shack. The Seafood House in Kemah (#1 Kemah Boardwalk, Kemah, TX) is certainly better. I had the Grilled Seafood Pasta and a salad to start off the dinner. The salad was fresh, but the dressing probably came out of a bottle. There was nothing wrong with it, but also nothing right. More interesting dressings are readily available at any grocery store.

The pasta followed the same pattern. The shrimp and the scallops were fresh and tasty. I especially enjoyed the scallops, which were grilled to perfection. The rest of the ingredients didn't live up to the standard set by the seafood. For example, I was not too excited to find mushrooms that either came out of a can or were horribly overcooked in my pasta. In the end I just picked out all the seafood and left much of the other components behind. Next time I'll order something that contains more seafood and less other ingredients.

All in all, while the food wasn't the greatest, it provided a reasonably satisfying dinner at an acceptable price for a tourist spot (one person: $22 w/o drinks). I should mention that the service was quick and friendly. Not a given in places like Kemah.
