Very nice restaurant! It’s still so busy it’s hard to tell about service but for all the crowd the service was great and the food came right out! Salads, étouffée, cow bayou burger and crawfish nachos were all excellent… The Cow Bayou burger was just awesome… I’m so glad I have a place to eat when we come off the water at mealtimes!!!

Wow! The filet mignon was incredible. And my brother’s order of pork chops were right on. Excellent wait staff, atmosphere and prices on beer. I’m coming back regularly.

A great “fresh” addition to the Neches River waterfront. Love the atmosphere and style. Food is fresh and served timely not to mention DELICIOUS!! Looking forward to my next visit..

It finally has opened and I was seated immediately. The service was very friendly And the food tasted great. The views and atmosphere were just what I hoped for. I will definitely be recommending The Wheelhouse to all my friends.

Wow! I came here on a late Sunday morning! Living in DFW and being from VA, I love getting fresh seafood with a bit of Cajun flair. … The restaurant, with its open-air setup is perfect for a sunny day. We went when it was still pretty warm but they had huge fans everywhere making sure it was cool enough for everyone. Great location on the Neches river. Beautiful view and nestled back in a neighborhood – just impressed all around.

Atmosphere is perfect. It’s just what this town needed. I wish more businesses would move in along side the wheelhouse. The food is excellent. Any poor reviews of the food are likely from people who are old and angry of the loss of view of the river from their homes. Service still needs a little work but overall this place is fantastic. In fact I think I’ll go have some lunch right now.

Why couldn’t this place have been around when I lived in PN?!? I would have been here nearly every day. I’ve tried several items on the menu, but the shrimp and grits is by far my favorite. … The shrimp are perfectly cooked (tender, not chewy and overdone) and the sauce is so darn good that I don’t even care if I look tacky licking it off my fingers. So if you know what good food should taste like, do yourself a favor and try this place. You won’t be disappointed.

Great casual upscale (yes, it’s possible!) place!! Wonderful, great tasting food plated beautifully! Relaxed atmosphere with a nice view of the river even when seated inside courtesy of the inspired design of glass garage doors! Added to our restaurant rotation!!!

Great atmosphere. Food was good and reasonably priced. Staff was super friendly. Great view of the river. I thought it was a good experience. We went on a Sunday evening (7/6/14) and it was a little crowded. No wait for a table or food. Also, outside is non-smoking which is awesome! They have washers outside to play and lots of outdoor seating.

Our group loved this place! It’s a fun hangout for Port Neches. The pork chops were so good, and my friend said his burger was the best he ever had. They had a pretty extensive beer list, too. My favorite thing was the outside seating overlooking the river.
