On a Thursday morning, after a pleasant walk around the Kemah Boardwalk, my husband and I chose the dark, cool dining room for an early (11:30) lunch. We were seated at a window table with a view of the fishing boats returning from Trinity Bay. I expected chain-restaurant food. Flying Dutchman (like McCormick and Schmick's and all of their properties)... More

I ordered the stuffed crab. It was good but I was stuffed :( I substituted fries for twiced baked potato which was really good. Large portions at this restaurant and you will definitely get your monies worth. Great for large parties and very kid friendly.

We loved the food and wished we had a better service experience. Our waiter took about 15 mins to finally greet us, only after a waitress had come over to check on us and assure us he was coming. He then continued to rush away without hearing everything we wanted. He came back to make sure my husband was refilled... More

We had a really great waiter and since we had asked how the restaurant fared during the hurricane, he even brought out a notebook of pictures. We then discovered that he and several other waiters had just been vacationing in our neck of the woods so we had lots of them looking after us and chatting about the San Antonio... More

Visited mid-afternoon (3-ish) on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was approximately 1/2 to 2/3 full of patrons. Our food was okay for the pricing but our server CLEARLY wanted to turn this table! I don't think we have ever felt so rushed out of a restaurant in our lives. What a terrible experience. It was almost as if there was a... More

Picked this place based on the name. Started out not being able to sit closer to the water because the table was reserved, when someone did show up to sit at the table there were 5 empty table close to the water. They do give a military discount. There is a small playground for smaller children. Got to hear live... More

Took my family here for Father's Day lunch. We arrived a little early for our reservation and was told to wait in the waiting area. Had requested a window table and after 15 minutes or so we were seated. It wasn't very busy so I have a feeling they just needed to put the table together quickly. We ordered to... More

Overpriced for what you get. Service was just OK, food was mediocre. There is NO sweet tea....We will not go back.

We had a group of 12 show up for lunch during the middle of the week. Not very busy, excellent wait staff, and the food was good. A little on the expensive side for lunch -- but still an enjoyable meal. Sat outside. Nice view.
