Where Fine Dining & Flip-Flops Meet

Where Fine Dining & Flip-Flops Meet

What do you get when you cross a comfortable family-style restaurant and a Cordon Bleu-trained chef? Answer: you get an amazing meal at Logan’s Fish House in Lake Dallas.

“You can come in your flip flops fresh off the lake and get a chef-prepared meal,” said Sheran Logan, co-owner of Logan’s Fish House. “We wanted to keep the comfortable feel of the restaurant, but really wanted to offer great food – the kind of food people drive into downtown Dallas for but without the drive, and without the high price tag.”

Chef Kevin Peck came to Logan’s through chance, fate, divine intervention or whatever you want to call it. His mother-in-law was talking with Sheran, offering up her services as a dessert chef, when Kevin’s name came up. Long story short, Kevin and the entire Logan family now all pitch in to make this restaurant a family affair nothing short of remarkable.

Picture this: you sit down in a comfortable, family-style restaurant. The waitress brings you hushpuppies with a delicious tomato relish (take that, chips and salsa!). The menu includes everything from Ahi tuna topped with mango Pico de Gallo to beer battered fish and chips.

Only a trained chef like Kevin Peck knows how to take the best comfort food and turn it up a notch. Only Sheran and her husband, Charles, know how to make everyone who walks in the door feel like family. Together, they make an incredible team.

The food is extraordinary. Panko-crusted snapper, Cajun style grits, blackened salmon salad, and gator bites are some of the newer chef-prepared dishes, but they still have all you can eat catfish for $12.99 and the regulars are raving that the way Chef Kevin makes it is even better than before.

When asked her favorite “Chef Kevin Creation” Sheran laughs that she changes her mind on her favorite every time Kevin comes up with a new dish. It is inevitably whatever he made last.

“My favorite dish today is the chicken,” said Sheran, “He marinates the chicken for two days in soy sauce and teriyaki. It’s so tender and flavorful.”

Logan’s is priced like a family restaurant, too. All of their dishes are priced below $16 except for the “Killer Whale Plate,” which includes six pieces of catfish shrimp, chicken fingers, hush puppies and a ½ pound of fries for just under $25.

Even the bar menu has upgraded to include an amazing new shrimp cocktail as well as homemade guacamole made with mango. They have expanded the bar and are planning to complete the outdoor patio this summer. Even their happy hour prices are great. House wines are $4, beer $2.50 plus they are carrying a new selection of wines to be paired up with their new dishes. You can get a great bottle of wine with your dinner if you’d like or just go with the house wine. Either way, you can’t lose.

Two of Sheran and Charles’ 5 kids work at Logan’s Fish House regularly. Their daughter is making desserts along with the chef’s mother-in-law who makes the best chocolate cake on the planet according to Sheran. Her daughter’s specialties include a blond brownie with graham cracker crust, white chocolate chips and banana pudding ice cream on top. She also serves a chocolate brownie topped with white chocolate truffle raspberry ice cream.

In addition to the amazing food, there is the service. Everyone in the family has their role and everyone pitches in. Sheran and Charles have spent over 30 years in the food industry, and they believe in treating everyone, from customers to employees, like family.

“We treat our staff like family so they’ll treat our customers like family,” said Sheran. “We also believe in helping our staff grow. We want them to go on to do big things.”

It’s important to them to know everyone’s name and if you don’t like hugs, we suggest you start liking them. They are also very serious about feedback. Sheran spends her mornings on social media checking the reviews. They have a passion to make sure people who come to Logan’s Fish House have a pleasant experience.

“She checks every single review and responds to all of them,” said Charles. “We aren’t scared of criticism at all, that’s how we get better.”

So if you’re ready for downtown Dallas dining in your flip-flops, with a family feel, a laid back atmosphere, a nice bar and an executive chef, just head for the lake. Logan’s Fish house is just down E. Hundley on the left. Come as you are.
