Floyds Cajun Seafood and Texas Steakhouse
16549 S. W. Freeway
Sugar Land, TX
Cuisine: Cajun Seafood and steak
This restaurant is owned and operated by three partners who have three other restaurants by the same name. One partner is the son of Don Floyd #75 who played for the Houston Oilers. It was started with the idea of showcasing their specialty of beloved boiled crawfish. Since then it has evolved and expanded to include other Cajun influenced seafood and Texas steaks.
It has quite an extensive menu including an oyster bar, boiled crawfish, boiled crab, gumbos, bisques, red beans, fried, grilled, or blackened seafood, pastas, steaks and sauces, and of course desserts.
This is the second time I have eaten here. The first experience, a few months after it opened, was not good. After giving it a second chance, my opinion changed considerably. The bacon wrapped shrimp Diablo (stuffed with jalapeno cream cheese) was very good and well presented. The salad was no big deal. The blackened scallops were excellent, large, juicy and flavorful. It came with your choice of a side. I chose Dirty rice, which was a bit too mushy even as dirty rice goes and didn’t stand out in any way. The fried shrimp were nice sized, crispy and flavorful. The pecan cobbler was a 4” square of deep-dish pecan pie served a la mode and was sinfully delicious!
Overall, the seafood was very good and satisfying, but a bit pricey for such a casual venue. The scallops were $18.99 for 6 large scallops and one side. Salad was extra. If you wanted to add a fancy sauce to your steak or fish it was an additional $7.00.
The service was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back to this place, but be cautioned about over ordering or your tab could be steep.
Overall Rating: 4 stars.
