Default Scumbag Houston's Pompano

Well, well, well. Guess who was begging for boat traffic for takeout today? Gave them a big thumbs down cruising by.

Yes, because sales are in the shitter. Big sign, "Welcome Boaters! Takeout open!"

So, the question is: Will they keep the dock open after the closure of restaurants, etc is lifted?

They can go F themselves. One of our handful (what, 5 total?) of waterfront restaurants and they close the docks to boaters three years ago because it didn't fit their image. THEIR IMAGE OF A WATERFRONT RESTAURANT.

I hope they fold and someone who owns a boat buys the property.

Ever try to drink or eat out there when there's an east wind and guys leaving 2 strokes or diesels/gennys running whole docked up. It can stink. Just sayin. Fk them go to kaluz it's better anyways.

I ate there for years and can't say I ever noticed that in particular - but I would think they'd have a good case to enforce a "no running engines" at the dock and even "no music" and even "no eating on your boat" as opposed to what they did, which was to close 1/5 of our waterfront restaurants to boaters.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to stand on their dock and admire the atlantic ave bridge and the fuel dock across the way. I used to patiently wait the 30-45 mins for a table and walk up and dock the docks checking out the boats.

I'm sure the rant sounds silly to anyone from out of the area, but the reality is that our city has thousands of private docks, great ocean access, and almost nowhere along the ICW to stop and get lunch or dinner.

​​​​​​​Frankly it's a city planning failure, we have miles and miles of residential waterfront where everyone has a dock and a boat, and only a very small handful of commerical waterfront locations.

Default Let them Sink

They didn’t want boaters for the last few years I think it’s time for boaters not to want them

I Agree 100% with this! Screw them!!
No boater should ever go there for food or drink

BTW, their property tax is $72k per year, or about $1400 per week........I hope they don't do that much "take out"!

Hey! Houstons!!! If you're reading this: GO F YOURSELF!!!!!

I was a LOYAL customer... everyone who came to visit I would take them to your place... we were there often. I've brought THT'ers there when they were visiting.

Then you decided that you wanted to close your dock. I NICELY contacted you, and you - essentially - told me to go F myself. You know what? Now YOU can go F yourself.

I wouldn't eat at your place if you were the last place to dine.

Nope, only ever ate there once. Mediocre,overpriced,too crowded, poor service.

But real live people work there, most of whom are soon to be jobless.
So f*** them too. They should have known better than to work at a place that pissed off a few self centered azzhats.

If you work at a place dumb enough to alienate BOATERS when you have a DOCK AND DINE restaurant, might I suggest that you started looking for a better job???

Sorry. But that's how it goes. I'm sorry for their workers. Perhaps their workers could have talked some sense into them then.

If you only ate there once, you certainly haven't helped out the employees have you?
I don't see how the local boaters that used to frequent the place are "self centered azzhats", but you appear to be an expert!!

Well, I am a boater that loves to hit the restaurants with my boat, however, some places, such as Kaluz when a big yacht shows up it just destroy's the view. So I've got a nice window table and have to look at the side of a yacht for the duration of my meal. I don't think we need to fault Houston's for their decision. Desperate times results in desperate measures..
