Danton’s Gulf Coast Seafood Kitchen is a seafood house reminiscent of days gone by. We are located in the heart of Houston’s Museum District, in the eclectic Chelsea Market and invite you to come and enjoy fresh, flavorful Gulf Coast fare created by seasoned cook Danton Nix.
Danton a self taught cook definitely has the culinary skills to lure people in. He opened and managed many well-known Houston eateries including Goode Company Seafood, Willie G’s, Landry’s - Galveston, and; created the menus at the original Joe’s Crab Shack and Joyce’s Oyster Resort.
The restaurant seats 200 and flows beautifully between the “Dining Room” and “Oyster Bar”. The Dining Room seats approximately 125, providing you the choice of a table, booth, or a stool at the bar. The Oyster Bar is unlike anything seen in Houston since the heyday of Gaido’s and Angelo’s Fisherman’s Wharf. Watch professional “shuckers” shuck fresh Gulf oysters right in front of you. The “Oyster Bar” also doubles as a private dining area with seating for approximately 60.
