Beau+Reve-31-3115349777-O Beau Revé  A vintage home by the waterside sets the scene for elegant seafood dining at Beau Revé , which means “Beautiful Dream.” A long drive, fountain and gardens surround this columned home.  Romantic dinners and business lunches get owner Becky Bellard’s  touch.  Pontchartrain fillet, shrimp and grits and shrimp etouffee are selections. The carriage house offers space for larger parties and there’s a shopping area, too. Take a stroll through the grounds to work off the banoffee. That’s a Beau Revé original: layers of lightly grilled pound cake with vanilla mousse, fresh bananas and warm toffee sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Larry's French MarketLarry’s French Market Crawfish? A Cajun two-Step? Up for the buffet? Larry’s French Market is a restaurant and an institution. On the weekends, it’s a dance hall, too.  Live Cajun and classic rock music gets the dance floor full of couples, grandparents and even the youngest revelers out to cut a rug. Larry and Brenda Judice serve up spicy crawfish in season and a buffet laden with fried fish, shrimp and savory goodness. Murals of swampy and coastal scenes complete the mood. There’s a gift shop so you can get some of that hot sauce or Cajun spices back home.

The Neches River Wheelhouse entices hungry customers to Port Neches’ scenic waterfront. Sit out on the deck and watch the ships pass by as you enjoy items such as crawfish po’boys, shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes. Stay and play a game of washers out on the lawn. The Wheelhouse is a place where you can eat and drink the entire day away.
