We really enjoyed our late lunch. We were seated inside, at a window overlooking the Elissa ship. The server was very attentive, but not overbearing. My husband had the fried shrimp and I had the fish and chips. The seafood and coleslaw were excellent, but the fries were average. Overall, we had an excellent lunch.

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The service was good. We fortunately had a table by the window with a great view of the harbor and the ELISSA ship. Our food was served hot and it was tasty. There is a huge variety of items on the menu so I think you can find almost anything that appeals to... More

As a child we visited Galveston often and I always wanted to eat at Fishermans Wharf, but we always stayed on the other side of the island on the sea wall. My Husband and I went for lunch while waiting on our beach rental house to be ready for our vacation. The menu was a bit more pricey than expected,... More

Good seafood with an amazing view of the ship channel. Right on the water with lots of outdoor seating or tables right next to the windows!

This was some of the worst food I have eaten period. Ughh...the trio appitizers were nasty. The cheese dip was very thick and just melted Velveeta cheese. The bacon wrapped shrimp was...cheesy or something weird, the Calamari was not tender, nor crispy it was like when you fry something in the wrong oil. IDK just not good. The bread was... More

I ate hear with some friends on a beautiful day. You have the option to sit outside, and it was a great experience. The food was above average, not great. The shrimp are really good. The calamari wasn't spectacular. I wasn't impressed with the drinks either. But you're not here for great food. You're here for a great ocean side... More

We've been coming here for years - once or twice a year. Just never seems to change in quality. The shellfish are always fresh, cooked right, served quickly and priced appropriately for a touristy area. We shared a dozen oysters on the half shell which were obviously fresh, tasty with just a little saltiness. Also a dozen cold, boiled shrimp... More

Having a Landry's card is a must in Galveston. Not only do you accrue points, but it will put you at the front of a very long wait! Once again on a busy Sunday, my card served me well. I went there three times during my. 1 week stay because the food is great (try the shrimp kisses), the service... More
