Great Location

This is our favorite place to drink in Galveston, mainly for the location and happy hour. We only come during happy hour so drinks are great price, I am not sure of the price outside HH. I see a lot of reviews for horrible drinks, we mainly get rum and coke and I think they are pretty decent. Its... read more

View, beach location are fabulous. Food is average, tends toward greasy. Drinks are a joke (stick to beer so you know what you'll get.)

A great location, and then it's downhill from there. Food distinctly average - we both had a burger, and shared some nachos. They definitely tried to cover up below standard quality with quantity. The most miserable bar staff in North America (and possibly South too). Drinks were overpriced and not very good. I'd avoid - except for the photo opp.

Service is a little slow when crowded, but you can't beat the scene or the burgers (just have a little patience).

Last year the burgers were excellent and at a fair price. This year the burgers seem to not be as good, but still a great price- especially on Thursday night when it's buy one get one free! Only issue I have is bar service- very often on nice days the bar has LONG lines and even if you just want... More

We visited here for the view which is fabulous but the drinks are very average. I wanted wine but they only have miniature Barefoot bottles which is distinctly average. All in all, not great.

Great location, typical bar food with overpriced drinks. Nice to sit outside and enjoy the view. The staff was accommodating but not overly so.

Drinks and food are fine, nothing exceptional but good bar food. The location and laid back atmosphere is great and you might catch some live music. Only bar on the beach so for this reason alone it's worth a stop. Service is polite and efficient. Would return on another visit

My brother and I were in Galveston to eat some seafood and stopped her for a beer and souvenirs. We grabbed a cold beer and walked around. The place was completely empty since it was the off season. There is a souvenir shop in the front and an outside bar area in the rear. The owners are getting ready to... More

Hate to say this.... But the Drinks are small and the price is high. We didnt try the food - it was overpriced. If they would bring the prices down on everything - They would be packed every day and night. They have a great Place - Could have alot of fun there. They should find a activity director and...
