High Tides Restaurant in Bridge City has officially announced they’ll be closing in a few weeks after being bought out by Golden Triangle Polymers/Chevron so that can use the land to bring in equipment via the waterway. The company plans to build offices with their dock nearby.

Dear Valued Customers,
It is with a heavy heart and a sense of deep regret that we announce the upcoming closure of our cherished waterfront family restaurant. After much contemplation and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations. It is a choice that was not arrived at lightly but one that we believe is in the best interest of our loyal customers and dedicated staff members.
Over the years, our restaurant has been a gathering place for families, friends, and the community as a whole. We have had the privilege of serving you, sharing in your special moments, and creating lasting memories. Your patronage and support have meant the world to us, and we are grateful for every single customer who has walked through our doors.
Regrettably, the challenges we have faced with staffing, discipline, and the subsequent decline in such. We have tirelessly searched for solutions to maintain the high standards and warm atmosphere that you have come to expect from us. However, it has become increasingly difficult to uphold the quality and service that have been our hallmarks.
Although this chapter is coming to a close, we are optimistic about the future and the new opportunities that lie ahead.
To our cherished staff, we extend our sincerest gratitude for your dedication and commitment. You have been an integral part of our family, and your contributions will be remembered with deep appreciation.
We cannot adequately express our gratitude for the support and love you have shown us over the years. You have made our journey a remarkable one, filled with cherished memories and lasting connections. We hope that you will continue to support the local businesses that make our community thrive.
With heavy hearts, we bid you farewell and express our deepest gratitude for your patronage and unwavering support.
Update: The restaurant has closed for good, according to their Facebook page.
