Awesome food and awesome views...

Me and my family liked this place..great food and equally good views. I believe it will be even better in the evening. The place was crowded and we have to wait for our table. But apart from that everything else was good...

We loved the food and the service was excellent! The atmosphere and view were amazing! They had a great happy hour also! There is nice outdoor seating on the harbor! A fun place for families too!

Other travelers would probably prefer that the food not be overly seasoned, but I found my Crabcake Sandwich very bland. I added some tartar sauce to it, which made it much better. Probably won't go back. Dining on the seawall is much better.

My wife and I have been in town for 3 nights on business. We have eaten out with a group each night and this was by far the best place compared to The Spot and Landry's. The food was the best (there was 11 of us so there was a lot of different food consumed). It was a consensus that... More

I absolutely love Fisherman's Wharf! I never leave Galveston without eating here at least once. I love the food, and the wait staff are great. They've always got a new awesome dish to try every time we come back. If you want a guaranteed good meal with a great experience whether you dine in the inside dining area or out... More

We had a party of 5. We were seated quickly. They were able to accommodate special diets along with a children's menu. The customer service was great. The food was excellent. The Rootbeer Bread Pudding was to die for. I will definitely go there again. Oh and they validate parking!

Always a favorite when we are in town. You MUST order the shrimp kisses from the appetizer menu. We usually order 2 plates because they are gone as soon as they hit the table. The crab & lobster bisque gets 2 thumbs up, as well as the crab cakes, and stuffed shrimp. The fishermans platter is great to share because... More

Our waiter was excellent as were the shrimp kisses, but accolades stop there. Drinks were weak. Grouper was overlooked and dry. Stuffed shrimp was way over cooked. Stuffed flounder was just okay. Had we not been trying to enjoy our friends 3 of the five of us would have sent food back. Sacrifice the water view and choose better food... More

For a seafood place, this restaurant has one of the best pork chops I've ever had, not cardiologist friendly but this seafood stuffed pork shops are to die for. The view is ok, the cruise canal, and the service is good. The shrimp fettuccine was a bit bland though.

Two of our meals at the table were overdone and hard to eat. One plate was cooked to satisfaction but nothing stood out for any of us except for the shrimp kisses appetizer! The service was great however the food was not worth our time!
