We look forward to visiting this restaurant each year when we visit Galveston Island. This us one of the flag ships.of the Landry chain. The staff is always entertaining. We love the watch the diving pelicans at dusk and enjoyed dolphins playing in the channel this time.

This area used to be much nicer, cleaner and safer, which I'm sure could be said for many places. Now it's totally a tourist trap with average quality restaurants and cheap souvenir shops. We were harassed by some drugged out thug who required me to use aggression and force to get him to go find another victim. Two SFPD officers... More

My wife and I ate dinner here for the second time, the first was about a year ago. We had a very good experience on each occasion. There is patio seating available that puts you closer to the water but it was August so we chose to stay indoors for the comfort of the AC. Arriving around 6:30PM we were... More

The food here is unbelievable. Our first trip to Galveston, and this was the last place we ate at. So glad we stopped there. The bacon wrapped shrimp was to die for and on the Happy Hour menu. Lots of goodies at this restaurant!

Had so much fun celebrating my birthday at this Fisherman's Wharf! Started with drinks and appetizers at the bar where Shelby, our bartender, did a wonderful job. She was so easy to talk with and so good at her job that we knew we'd come to the right place to celebrate. Decided to stay for dinner and were very pleased... More

We came here with 2 adults and 4 kids wanted to eat after going on our air jet boat ride. As soon as I opened the menu and saw the prices I told my husband we should just pay for our drinks and leave. I felt bad for that but we aren't huge seafood eaters anyways and that's mainly what... More

We had a good meal here with great service and friendly staff. The food was good and well-priced so could not complain. We sat outside at the back overlooking the water. It is a bit remote and took a while to get a cab to take us back to the hotel.

We have eaten here for years and have to say the quality has gone down. A plate that costs $24 should have more than 5 shrimp on it.

Was recommended. We took 6 adults 3 little kids under 10. They acted scoffed that we didn't order liquor. We splurged, and my plate was $26.99, total bill with 18% tip added on was $97 for 3 adults and one 4 yr old. View of water, outdoor seating. Cool decor, not super friendly staff. Got free parking with validation, easy... More

Went here for lunch, ordered a specialty drink. Bartender dumped in a couple ingredients then threw in ice and filled w Sprite, no mixing or stirring, drink was pulpy and gross. He put a straw in the drink that his hands were all over, disgusting. Ordered the fried shrimp, it was then best I have had in a long time,... More
