First, I had the sour appletini...it was great and then ordered the calamari for appetizer...also pretty good. I ordered the stuffed flounder and it was perfect. Our waiter was very attentive and he did a great job. Highly recommend this place.

Husband and I ate here for the first time. The atmosphere was casual and great for families and groups as well as couples. We got immediate seating on a Sunday night dinner hour. Was seated inside with water view upon request. Had the shrimp kisses app. Very yummy. I had grilled shrimp with veggies and rice pilaf. Everything on the... More

This is such a great location but the food is so terribly average. If they kicked it up a bit, they'd have a real gem

We drove about 6 hours that day to get to Galveston with 3 kids under the age of 11, and had checked into the condo and carried our bags up. Needless to say we were tired and hungry when we hit the restaurant which was recommended by the guy checking us in at the condo. This place is not the... More

We went on a Saturday evening in July expecting to wait so 30 minutes wasn't too bad. Margaritas on rocks really exceptional, helped with wait (no call ahead seating available). Galveston Trio appetizer is amazing (more than enough for two). Meal was ok. Dessert was very good (pecan pie with a warm caramel sauce). We live on coast so waterview... More

Stopped there for Lunch on July 4th and paid the price. Our table was on the warf, outside and it was still cool enough to enjoy the water. You are paying for the name and the location. Make sure you take your parking ticket in to get it validated. Service was average or less as our waitress acted like she... More

We tried this restaurant over the 4th of July weekend and it was a nice surprise. It was not over crowded and they wait was short. They have a lot of outdoor seating on the water but the indoor seating provides just as good views of the water without the heat. The kids enjoyed the boats going by and the... More

The view from my table was wonderful, you can either sit outside or inside, both options seemed to have a nice veiw and atmosphere. My mahi mahi dinner was very delicious, and a little on the spicy side. My waiter was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed by the manager making regular rounds around the restraunt, greeting and checking... More

Loved the location, the professional and kind staff, great view of the water, entertained by the jumping dolphins at sunset, delicious gumbo and fish entrees, and family-friendly.

The food was good but it was overpriced and the service was marginal. You have to request dinner roles it you don't get them and for $25-$30 a plate you should not have to ask. Doubt we will go back
