Neches River Wheelhouse
From the outdoor cabana bar we watched the ships pass by as we waited for our table at this popular riverfront eatery, which has upped its game with a more sophisticated menu that goes well beyond fried seafood. The stuffed chicken breast fairly burst with a rich crawfish-cornbread dressing, and the sautéed redfish was just as tasty. A side of fresh spinach came garnished with pungent slivers of garlic and sweet cherry tomatoes. It was an evening of welcome—and delicious—exceptions to the ordinary.
