It is Monday, September 27. I have just enjoyed a weekend on the Kemah Boardwalk. It is wine festival. Can't say that the food or service at Landry's is bad, but what I stumbled onto was. I am sitting at the bar and a young man comes in and has a drink at the bar. He was nice looking clean cut young black kid. He tells two black servers to meet him at Terrace Cafe later. They kick the kid out. I ask another employee what was that all about and she tells me that they only go to zone 504, ; and Terrace cafe is not welcome. She further tells me that they are boycotting Terrace Cafe because they will not let them cuss. So, I had to go to Terrace Cafe after that. I first went to Zone 504 and saw the staff and managers from Landry's hanging out together. It was cool. A good mix. A large fat Irish looking red-headed girl and the two black guys who had kicked the clean cut kid out of Landry's from earlier in the evening, ...even the skinny manager from Landry's was there. Then I went to Terrace Cafe. It was a cool place and , yes...they didn't allow cussing .....what a concept. It was refreshing and I had fun. Shame on Landry's for picking on a little mom and pop place...... GROW Up!!!!

Faced with the winter season fast approaching, and wanting to sail more as time permits , I went to visit the Kemah Boardwalk Marina, I had heard from other boaters this was the place to go. The proximity to Galveston Bay appeared ideal to escape the wrath of the Northeast winds that drain the other marinas of their lifes blood.
Well I am here to tell you that on one hand they were right, but thats the extent of the good this so called martina offers. First and what should be formost in all boater minds is it a safe environment, sadly the answer was No! as a structural engineer I can say in all candor that this place is falling apart, the floating docks are a plus but only in principal, the place is coming apart at the seams, the fairways are stuffed with old relics of the past, that hinder safe passage to and from your slip. It appears to me while walking the piers that boat size and slip size do not gel as in other marinas I have looked into. My suggestion is if you want a parking lot, go for it, but if you are looking for a broader view, move on.

It?s a shame that this marina has been allowed to decompose over the last few years. The management knows little about boats and boating, and even less about customer service. I?ve never seen a business have such disdain for their customers. If it?s not the owner?s intention to drive all the boats out and fill it in for more parking, they?re certainly missing an excellent opportunity to do so. The pool and spa are closed more than they?re open, the toilets back up and many of the tide risers are broken. If you complain, you will be evicted.
The lease agreement now features a clause that allows the marina to force you to vacate for a month while they hold giant boat shows, so don?t get too attached to your slip.
On the upside, it has deep water floating docks and it the closest marina to the bay.

I have never been so rudely talked to in my entire life! I had called to inquire about a slip for lease and was actually assigned a slip and told when I got there to come into the marina office and sign the lease papers.
One week later we pulled my motoryacht into the assigned slip and went straight to the marina office at which time I encountered my 'nightmare""! The conversation about the slip did not go well. The manager was mad about something and there was a little dog that had just wet on the floor and she was trying to get the other girl to clean it up. With all the confusion, again I asked about our slip was informed the slip was no longer available and I was escorted back to my boat. I was yelled at like a foul mouthed sailor to get my boat out of the marina immediatly! I was horrified! I don't know what went wrong and why I was screamed at in such a manner. My poor husband thought I did or said something to this woman to get such a reaction! I promised him I acted in a very professional manner to get the job done in leasing our slip. We were very fortunate to find another slip in a different marina after sitting in the bay and calling around.
I don't know who this this blonde haired under educated fouled mouthed bimbo is but if you need to lease a slip at this marina....be afraid....be very afraid!

We were seated promptly and during our meal, the waiter was attentive yet not hanging aroudn the table aggrivating us.
I had the Seafood Penne di Mare and it was GREAT! I ate every bite of the leftovers I brought back to the hotel. My husband was pleased with his Jambalaya Pasta and the 3rd person with us really like his stuffed flounder. The house salad was good and I even brought the rest of that with me too.
I can't really say anything bad about the place. We ate at a Landry's in Pensacola that was good as well.
We are from south Louisiana, and are picky about our seafood and anything with a 'cajun' theme. Landry's did not disappoint.
