The Neches River Wheelhouse is located on the Neches River in Port Neches, Texas, and was an idea between 8 local business owners and close friends. They wanted somewhere to go eat that was neighborhood friendly and not just another chain operated restaurant. They all agreed that our area’s best attribute was the plentiful waterways surrounding our entire community.
These waterways are used for pleasure boating, fishing and skiing as well as ship and barge travel. The only thing it wasn’t used for was for people to enjoy watching while having dinner and drinks. The Neches River Wheelhouse is the only water front restaurant between Crystal Beach and Lake Charles.
The Restaurant’s open air concept, and the fact that it’s just feet away from the Neches River waterway, allows patrons to enjoy dinner and drinks in an outside atmosphere as they watch some of the most interesting marine & ship traffic from here to Galveston.
The Wheelhouse is not only known for its great atmosphere. Our top priority is our food and service. We have put together a team of cooks and chefs to create a menu that ranges from seafood to hamburgers, poboys, and the best hand-cut steaks in the area.
The Wheelhouse has a family friendly atmosphere. Kids’ meals are served on frisbees. After finishing a meal, there is plenty of room for kids to play frisbee and run off some energy while the parents relax & enjoy the Wheelhouse atmosphere & hospitality. Whether you come to spend the day with us or come for a romantic moon rise dinner, the Neches River Wheelhouse is the place to enjoy a great meal in a relaxing atmosphere.
