THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hyden's Dockside Restaurant Review

: In a literal sense, the name is ludicrous: A rain puddle in the parking lot is as close as this Woodlands-area eatery gets to water. But for the freshness and quality of its seafood, Hyden’s may as well be on the pier at Kemah. The kitchen fixes fish, shrimp, crab and crawfish every which way but overdone, with fried or stuffed shrimp ranking at the top of the pack. Try the well-stocked fisherman’s platter or the perfectly spiked crawfish pie but ignore the wet hush puppies. (Beware other instances of Cajun seasonings, though, unless you have an extreme tolerance for heat.)
