Moving is hard work. And you deserve to reward yourself with some scrumptious sustenance. Plus, what better way to get a feel for your new area than to check out the cuisine it has to offer? There are dozens of fabulous Woodlands restaurants to cater to any craving.

The Woodlands is known for its fine dining, casual eateries, and everything in between. Here is just a taste (pun intended) of the many delicious options you’ll find.

Best Woodlands Restaurants For:


For the most important meal of the day, look no further than The Egg & I. It’s a national chain that somehow maintains its local favorite status. Are you a seafood lover? Try the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict.

The Black Walnut Cafe is an amazing place to dine, no matter the time of day. But breakfast here is something really special. We suggest the Texas Cut Challah French Toast. The toppings alone — lemon zest, honey butter, powdered sugar, and maple syrup — make it worth every single calorie.

Lunch and Dinner

Olive Oil is a Woodlands institution that offers fresh, authentic Greek cuisine. Specialties include moussaka, stuffed grape leaves, and authentic spinach and cheese pies. Make sure to go on a Friday or Saturday night for the Greek musicians, dance floor, and belly dancers.

If you’re in the mood for a white-tablecloth experience in a contemporary setting, try Hubbell & Hudson Bistro, Kitchen, & Cureight. Chef Austin Simmons is a national treasure. And the salad bar is to die for.


For all the pizza lovers, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria can’t be beat. Yes, it’s a franchise — but for a reason. They use a special coral brick oven to turn out the perfectly crisp, gooey pizzas that we’ve all grown to adore.

If you’re into authentic Tex Mex, Lupe Tortilla is the place to be. There’s something for every taste, but we recommend the Soft Cheekin Tacos. You won’t be sorry.

Happy Hour

Churrasco’s is a South American dining experience that offers box lunches, Steak Night, and one of the best happy hours around. Small plates include flaky empanadas, a fancy mac and cheese with Spanish fromage, and their famous Pork Cubano Sandwich. Luscious cocktails are only $5.95.

Craving something a little different? Try Fukuda Japanese Restaurant, where they serve up authentic Japanese cuisine as well as fun fusions. Think Chicken Katsu, Shrimp Tempura, and a variety of sushi. And of course, you must order the sake.

Special Occasions

Are you looking to celebrate or spend a special night on the town? The Woodlands is filled with so many great venues that it’s difficult to narrow down the list. Here are a couple of the best Woodlands restaurants for special occasions:

  • Jasper’s serves gourmet backyard cuisine with dishes like Gulf Coast Caesar Salad, Rotisserie Corned Beef Reuben, and Black Angus Tenderloin Filet.
  • Truluck’s Seafood Steak & Crab believes in the very freshest seafood, along with prime cuts of beef. One look at their sustainable menu options will have you drooling.
  • Schilleci’s specializes in authentic Cajun and Creole cooking. Sip your beverage of choice while you relax in the beautifully rustic dining room.
