Deckhand Oyster Bar

Found this place in the old Fazolli's location on Parker, SW of the 1325 / I-35 intersection.

The interior leaves a lot to be desired, but it had a nice vibe and a good crowd even at 3:30 on a Saturday afternoon. They have some Thai dishes throw in with seafood (owners are Thai/Laotian). It's a family-run business, our waitress, Candle, is the owners daughter.

The oysters were from Galveston and top quality. Really well done work with them, a nice bright cocktail sauce and good horseradish.

They have a cooked oyster dish similar to Pacific Star's Ranchero oysters, which were pretty good.

They had fried bacon-wrapped shrimp & jalapeno that were very heavily seasoned, but enjoyably so.

My son had the green-lipped mussels that had been broiled with sauce and cheese. Flavorful, but the sides advertised weren't served with it, though we didn't need them.

My wife's crawfish pirogue was OK, very heavy on the mushrooms and a bit salty, but she enjoyed it.

I had a crawfish po-boy, it's essentially served on garlic toast with a well executed remoulade sauce. I'd order it again but go for the fried oysters instead.

The beer is served in ice frosted mugs only 4 taps, but they also have Chang (Thai) beer, which is a favorite of mine and hard to find.

A few misses, but for a hot Saturday afternoon, cold oysters, colder beer and a decent sandwich made for a fantastic selection.
