THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shanghai Red's Restaurant Review: You might think twice about eating at the Ship Channel, but you neednt be. The waterfront views are, in fact, terrific, and the deck seating has the pleasant scent of sea breezes rather than the nasty odor of diesel fuel. All and all, Shanghai Reds is great fun. Lunch, especially, and also dinner seem sort of influenced by the seventies. A number of chicken salads, mushroom caps and stuffed potato skins, many blackened entrées and surf-and-turf combos and our old pal fried zucchini all appear on the menu, along with some surprisingly elegant main courses. Beer-battered shrimp and fried catfish are done well here, but youll also do well to linger over trout Shanghai topped with shrimp and lump crabmeat or a rich seafood casserole. Those who crave red meat will find steaks, but its best to eat something not completely filling, so you can complete your meal with a slice of Key lime pie.
