Great location! Packed, so about an hours wait but plenty of room to wait. Staff was wonderful. Food was average. Shrimp scampi needed some flavor. My shrimp/crab boil also lacked flavor. :( will probably skip this one next time.

Great location. Great service. Mahi Mahi was the size of a fish stick, cost 22.99. Server asked me if I wanted it blackened, I said yes. Extra buck surprise. It was tiny and raw in the middle. Vegetables were practically raw, no seasoning, no flavor. Wife's grilled shrimp were uneventful. So, after $70, we walked away hungry and disappointed. The... More

Food was good service was fair. Wait staff and door hostess weren't overly friendly. Did not feel comfortable or welcomed. The only thing going for it is the location. I would go elsewhere.

Been here many times never a bad experience. Do purchase a Landry's membership card and use it at over 400 places nationwide--Place was very crowded at 1:30 PM...told we'd have to wait 30 minutes for a table. After showing our Landry's card, were seated in less than 5 minutes. Our Waitress- Angela- was so friendly and helpful! We shared a... More

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
