Lunch here was very good

Good service, good selection of food and would go back. I had shrimp which was delicious. Next time I will try one of their drinks.

This was a very friendly and tasty place to eat. We were greeted immediately, and seated quickly. Our drink orders were taken almost as soon as we sat down. We were given plenty of time to look over the menu as it was our first time there. Our waiter was funny, and made our dining experience one worth noting. The... More

I feel this restaurant is an overpriced tourist trap with average food. Our 10 - 15 minute wait for a table was more like 30 and once we were seated another 20 for two waters and a kids drink.

always a good meal, seating inside or out. service was fast and efficient and the menu diversified. they need to bring back "shark teeth" as part of their app. menu. they have gone up in price so watch it on the extras and special drinks.

Originally we had a 30 minute wait but because my brother was a Landry's Select Club member we received priority seating and seated at a a table in less than 5 minutes. Our waiter, don't know if he was new or experienced, was slow to get our drink and appetizer orders. Within a very short time (really thinking it was... More

first off, parking was bad. You have to pay to park, second, I had Calamari as an appetizer. It was over cooked and rubbery. When my meal came, the vegetables seemed to be heated up in a microwave. Part of it was hot and part was still stone cold. The crawfish ettoufe was luke warm at best. The rest of... More

Luckily for the 20 minute wait we were allowed to sit at the bar where I discovered the Painkiller (which i make at home), it was absolutely perfect!! after being seated outside upstairs we were promptly greeted. After looking over the menu I decided to give the stuffed shrimp (my favorite seafood item) and my partner chose the king crab.... More

This was a great place with great food and spectacular service. My family and I were recently in Galveston and we went here for dinner and had a fantastic time. The food was excellent, and the customer service was second to none. It's right across the street from Pleasure Pier, and although there is a bit if a wait, it... More
