However, it’s not just its delicious entrees, sauces and daiquiris that have captured the attention of many Houstonians. The restaurant’s name has spread across our community through its generous contribution -- helping those in need.

Derrick Wilkerson, manager of the Pearland location, said it’s been rewarding to see how many families have participated and been helped.

Wilkerson, a father of three, understands how difficult times are right now, especially with children being out of school. “These people are like our heartbeat,” said Wilkerson. “It keeps us going.”

According to Wilkerson, all 200 plates are distributed at each location, and no extra plates are left behind.

“However we can help them out - we are all from Houston,” said Wilkerson.

The meals include popcorn shrimp, chicken nuggets and fish nuggets, all served with french fries.

Don’t forget about the adults

Aside from its generous contributions to the community, the seafood restaurant is also featuring a happy hour you can’t miss out on.

Monday through Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. it is offering $5 per pound crawfish and $10 per pound shrimp with the shell on that includes corn and potatoes. Of course, happy hour isn’t complete without the drinks. The restaurant is offering 20% off daiquiris at its Kirkwood & Pearland locations.

Lotus Seafood has previously offered special deals for healthcare workers, including free meals and special discounts. Wilkerson hopes to continue serving those working on the front lines, protecting our community.

The free kid’s meal is only available Monday through Wednesday beginning at noon. Meals are on a first come first served basis, and Lotus Seafood encourages kids to stay at home for their safety. The servings are based on an honor system, and customers are encouraged to only take what they need.
