A great place to crunch out the fatboy in you. By crunch I really mean munch. I gobbled oysters and crawfish and shrimp and potatoes and corn on the cob and swilled beer and flirted and chatted and burped and scratched and yawned and took pictures and generally enjoyed myself beyond measure.

Overlooking the Marina at Kemah, adjacent to the boardwalk and multiple shops and other eateries, Swamp Shack immediately won me over and I will go back and sincerely recommend it to those of you who may find yourself in the area.

Having driven 347 miles in 5 1/2 hours to be disappointed in a potential used truck purchase at Gay Pontiac GMC in Dickinson, I needed a positive experience and Swamp Shack certainly provided that. The staff was great and WAYYYYY too cute and three retired Delta Airline ladies sitting at the adjoining table kept me smiling and entertained.

The view of the anchorage satisfied my need for salt water, sea air and boats for the moment and …in spite of the disappointment at the dealership, life was, in that instant, better than ok. I do plan a return trip to Swamp Shack next time I’m in the vicinity Please, give it a try and let me know what you think.

If you have a few days to experience the Texas coastline, Kemah is a great place to start and from there you can keep moving south all the way to Padre Island down by Corpus Christi. I love the coast….any coast and the Texas coast provides plenty to see and do. I highly suggest it as a destination.
