    Eugene's is definitely in the top five restaurants in Houston and is easily the best for seafood. Excellent atmosphere and attentive waitstaff. They use local seafood and Kyle has his own special recipes. Don't miss this one!

    Never disappointed here. Real Gulf Coast fresh seafood well prepared. Go for specials the waiter tells you about. They are all great. Capachena appetizer, gumbos, grilled and broiled fish (real gulf coast catch), soft shell crabs. We had a party of 8 and had it all including a landlubber ribeye steak that was also great.

    My wife and I returned to Eugene’s for dinner last week. We’ve dined there before with friends but this dinner and service was simply the best yet. The food was cooked perfectly and our server, Henry, was fantastic. He be never rushed us but took time to chat and answered question about the menu. He was so friendly! We look forward to our next visit there and thank all the staff for their good work.
