Located on a working harbor with a great view of vessels going up and down the channel and dolphins frolicking in the bay. The best seafood and view of the sunset in Galveston. We offer private dining for between 10 and 300, and have accommodated many large functions such as the Commemoration of the USS Fort Worth, many weddings, bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. We are also within easy walking distance of the Strand on Pier 21.

Went there in the last two weeks. I have been there 2 or 3 times. I am out of Houston and get down to Galveston a few times per yr. This last time I had the bouilliabase and it was great; pair it with a Greek salad like I did. When we go we always sit outside on the rail... More

One of the best restaurants in town. Plenty of options in the menu. Fresh vegetables and well cooked and presented meals, both fish or meat. Exquisitive appetizers and desserts. We enjoy every time we go there.

The service was excellent, as was the food. We had a cocktail and entrees. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the... More

I ordered the fried shrimp. I'm really not a huge fan of shrimp, so I didn't eat much of it. Hubby really enjoyed his meal, and the kids' grilled cheese pitas were delicious! If I return, I think I'll just go back for dessert. Oh. My. Goodness. We ordered the chocolate cake, the apple pie, and the lemon custard. They... More
