Great Pizza--just off the beach

We stopped for lunch and was surprised that there weren't more people there. Very clean and nicely decorated, this restaurant is located in the Emerald by the Sea complex at the east end of the Seawall. It can be easily overlooked but you shouldn't let this one go by.

Twice recently the staff has made a mistake on my order at lunch. I am guessing there are new staff members, but it is not fun to have limited time and end up having to take your meal to go. The food is quite good, but not always turned out in the proper order.

Pizzas and calzones we've had here are pretty good most of the time, but prices can be a little high. But that's Galveston - it's a tourist town. They do have outdoor seating, which is a plus. They're also right across the street from Stewart Beach, which could be convenient.

Good food, friendly service and affordable prices. Salad and a piece of pizza enough for lunch and dinner.

I went into the unclean restaurant with a friend on Christmas. Not too busy when I arrived, to be greeted by an anxious cashier who seemed to be cranked up on something else. My friend ordered a slice. I ordered a gluten free pizza and a glass of chianti wine. Sat at the bar and waited 10 minutes for my... More

Ordered take out, large Pizza with Chicken! Very good. Recommend getting the large compared to the other size as there is a huge size difference but only $4.00 difference. Pizza was awesome cold for next day! They have a huge menu! One of the only places that offers Cannoli! Nice interior even though I did take out. Wait for the... More

This branch of a small chain is located on the Seawall, close to the medical center. They have a large local clientele which is good for the off-season, but it is seldom crowded. Order at the counter, food delivered to your table. The staple is a very good, thin crust, New York style pizza, suitable for folding to eat. They... More

Their salad is so good! Pizza is awesome! Kids always get cheese and we usually get some type of Mediterranean type. Very yummy. Never ordered the other items, it's a pizza place - so we order pizza!

As the title says, these guys have great pizza. Their pizza is the best I have had anywhere, but every other food which I tried there was bad. And if you go there, don't order a basic type of pizza, like pepperoni pizza. Take prosquto, or greek, or some other of their specialty pizzas.
