The restaurant has never disappointed me. From the seafood platters to the hamburgers, it's all good. My personal favorite is the shrimp po' boy. It's comparable to a Fuddruckers only to the degree that you get a pager that goes off when your food is ready and you can load you hamburger as you like. I suggest sitting outside if... More

Wasn't all that impressed. When you walk up to the hostess desk we were met by 2 kids who asked if we'd been there before. Clearly not because instead of being directed to stand in line to order & pay for my food I would've just gotten in line. We were given the option to sit in the bar &... More

Great happy hour specials on apps and drinks. Good music and they always have sports events on the many TVs through out the bar and restaurant. Service is good and of course, being on Seawall, the views are excellent! It can be chilly in the bar, so bring a jacket on cold or rainy days.

Stopped in at "The Spot" had seafood which was great - but large serving so no room for dessert so we went back another day and had their Key Lime Pie it was delicious. Great view of the seawall and Ocean.

Me and my family go to Galveston every year for vacation. This is one of our favorite spots. Their hamburgers are awesome, seafood is great, and the milkshakes are to die for. You can even sit out on the deck and watch the waves while you eat. You stand in line to order, then they give you a number that... More

This was a fun place. We had a large pre arranged party. Kind of set up weird, and choppy. Can't bring mixed drinks into eating area. Food was good. Service average. Seems to be a popular place as it was very crowded!!

Stopped in for a melon drink with my fiance . We have come here many times before and had the same drink but last nite I was terribly disappointed. The atmosphere there was nothing like it has been in the past. The staff acted as tho it was a bother to wait on us and the drink we ordered was... More

This place has amazing fried seafood. We have stopped here twice before a cruise now. We got a huge sampler platter and fries. Our friends ordered cheesecake and coffee, which also looked delicious.
