Local Eats: Brothers Seafood and Soul Food in Flint serves up seafood boils, honey chicken tenders and more

FLINT, MI — From soul food to seafood, a restaurant that opened earlier this year has hungry customers covered with its range of dishes.

Brothers Seafood and Soul Food restaurant, located at 3805 E. Court St. in Flint, opened in early February. The business is occupying a former Halo Burger location.

Owner Deondrick Louis, 27, has been cooking for years and often watched his father, who is a local chef, cook as he was growing up.

“I like to visualize and be hands-on with things, that’s what made me want to do it because he’s been doing it for years,” said Louis of the decision to pursue a business in the food industry.

Some of the items on the menu include chicken wings, fried catfish, seafood boils, seafood pasta, hibachi combos, loaded potatoes, collard greens, sweet potatoes, fried okra, mozzarella sticks and honey chicken tenders, which are one of the top sellers, Louis said.

The chicken tenders meal with fries will cost customers $10.59. The seafood boil is a top menu contender as well at $29.

Customers can also choose between two desserts: fried cinnamon rolls and fried honey buns.

Louis, a Beecher native, said he named the restaurant with his five brothers in mind.

“I always wanted to leave something to my brothers and that’s what made me call it Brothers Seafood and Soul Food, so they have somewhere to go if they need to get a job or anything like that,” said Louis, adding some of his brothers come in to help out with the business.

The restaurant offers dine-in seating and a drive-thru. Hours of operation at Brothers are 4-10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
