Nothing special food-wise. Service was good. We had fish and chips. It AND the Pinot Grigio had no flavor. The servings of tartar sauce were tiny, but they brought more. Ketchup bottle had black scum/goo/yuck around the neck. They replaced it and apologized, but that's what I will see/remember when... read more

we visit this restaurant when we are in Galveston. Lots of local seafood offerings. We seem to always go toward the shrimp. Love the shrimp kisses. Remember to get your parking validated.

My family and I visited the Elissa, and afterwards we had dinner here. The service was great, and the food was all on point! We all enjoyed fresh locally caught fish, and all were delicious! Ask your concierge if they have a referral coupon for a free appetizer or dessert. We split a freshly made root beer bread pudding which... More

If you like fish then the Fisherman's Wharf on the strand in Galveston is the place for you. Maybe a tad pricey, but it is so worth it. The atmosphere is great and there is always the Elissa, a tall ship, which is anchored (permanently) to enjoy after a great meal. Then watch the cruise ships coming and going from... More

Stopped here for lunch and had the oyster PO boy. Oysters were juicy and delicious. Bread was boring In my opinion, but the service was very good! Loved eating out on the water!

My family ate here the night before our cruise and we all loved it. The food is excellent! A lot of the seafood is caught fresh near the island. I had the Dungeness crab which was not but was excellent! Service was excellent! We sat outside on the deck with a nice water view. My understanding is this restaurant is... More

One of several fine restaurants on the piers. Very well done nautical atmosphere. Neat view of the old sailing ship Elissa. Food was very good--fresh, well seasoned. Waitstaff attentive and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the evening.

We have been there twice. Both times we decided we didn't want alot of food and it was happy hour. We had a great waiter both times. It was busy both times, but service was great. One time we just had a drink with appetizers....shrimp kisses (yum), fried fish, chips and dip. All were very good. The second time we... More
