If you’re looking for a space with character, this lodge-style restaurant in a century-old log cabin on the rolling grounds along White Oak Bayou is your jam. The longtime Houston institution has some serious game—provided your date’s not averse to antler-based decor—as well as some actual game on the menu in the form of venison, elk, and wild boar chops. Cozy up next to the fireplace and settle in for a delightful (and adventurous) night.

Owner: Donnette Hansen
Set in a 114-year-old log cabin with sprawling acre of lush grounds along White Oat Bayou, Rainbow Lodge is a place of out of time. Specializing in wild game and seafood, the restaurant has been a fine dining destination for the better part of the last three decades thanks to proprietor Donnette Hansen. Montana-born but raised in Texas, Hansen attended the New York Restaurant school prior to acquiring Rainbow Lodge in 1988, and her stewardship keeps it thriving to this day. Book early to snag one of the loveliest al fresco tables in Houston, then feast on specialties ranging from smoked duck gumbo, to Texas fried quail with white cheddar grits and bourbon bacon gravy, or rainbow trout with lump crab and pecan brown butter.
How to order: Open for dine-in, patio seating. For curbside pickup, call 713-861-8666.
