Pier 6 Debuts Can’t-Miss Bayside Brunch

The Baller Bloody Mary

WE MIGHT NOT have the picture-perfect weekend weather that Pier 6 Seafood & Oyster House had in mind for its delicious brunch debut — but it's a decent bet that the Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast will still taste damn good.


The waterfront restaurant, which opened in San Leon in November from the family behind renowned Prestige Oysters, is helmed by former Brennan's of Houston chef Joe Cervantez, who clearly had a lot of fun coming up with Pier 6's new brunch menu. Guests can devour items like the "hot chicken donut" with Crystal hot sauce honey and a fried egg, or the wood-grilled-shrimp enchilada, all while soaking up the views of Galveston Bay.

The steak and egg here is special, made with Snake River Farms' Wagyu Spinalis and served with caramelized-onion potatoes, bearnaise sauce and, yes, another fried egg, all served in its own little skillet.

All dishes are best accompanied, of course, by not one but four mimosas — a fruit-topped flight awaits! — or a Baller Bloody Mary, overflowing with shrimp.

Ready for a getaway yet? The bayside restaurant — which itself is lovely, boasting colorful interiors and two decks with an expansive wrap-around bar and rattan swings — also offers four stylish, bungalow-style overnight accommodations for those wishing to make a night of it. Or, might we suggest, a night followed by a delicious morning brunch?
