Celebrated Restaurateur Thinks Outside the Loop, Opens New Hot Spot in Spring Branch

Shrimp and grits at Low Tide

ALLI JARRETT BOLDLY declares that Spring Branch is the “face of Houston.” And indeed, the famously multicultural area is a great cross-section of the folks that make this city special — and delicious. So it makes sense that Jarrett, who owns Harold’s Restaurant & Tap Room in the Heights, selected the outer-Loop neighborhood for her next venture, Low Tide Kitchen & Bar.


The restaurant, named for the lowcountry in South Carolina, where Jarrett grew up, is located in a former taquiera on Bingle at Hammerly. The remodeled space now lends a beachside feel, and two private porches, each seating 12-16 people, will be surely be popular once the temps take a turn.

Low Tide, which previously operated as a stall in Finn Hall, will serve southern-tinged seafood, chicken and burgers beginning Monday, Aug. 22. Expect an oyster bar with selections from the Gulf and East Coasts, and sandwiches that can also be prepared as bowls or salads. Touting craft cocktails, mocktails and a kid’s menu, it’ll be both family- and budget-friendly. For now, Low Tide is only open for dinner, but will soon expand its hours to include breakfast, lunch and brunch.

“The mission of Low Tide is to provide our guests with the utmost southern hospitality and service, along with the freshest seafood available at affordable prices,” says Jarrett, who was recognized by the Texas Restaurant Association as the 2022 Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year. “We want a fun, neighborhood atmosphere where you feel like you are eating at the beach.”
