Houston seafood restaurants are plentiful in the land of gulf coast dining. But if you are searching for an undeniably unique and historically rich culinary experience, look no further than Monument Inn Restaurant located in the heart of San Jacinto State Park.
The nearby San Jacinto Monument, which commemorates the Battle of San Jacinto, is the world’s tallest monumental column. Monument Inn Seafood Restaurant is also next door to the Battleship Texas, one of only six remaining ships to have served in both World Wars.
Monument Inn is truly a one-of-a-kind waterfront seafood restaurant. While feasting on savory dishes, diners are treated with a stunning view of international boats floating down the bustling Houston Ship Channel – a magically nautical atmosphere.
