“Best meal of our vacation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We ate at quite a few locations on our trip but this place was by far the best! It was more expensive but so worth it. My mom had the red fish which she said was the best she had ever tasted. I chose a safer chicken dish and it was very good & juicy with tons of flavor. My kids were also very pleased with their meals which were from the adult menu also. They wanted to return again during our trip but we just didn't have the time or we would have. This will be our first stop the next time we are in Galveston.

“Galveston's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Just finished dinner at The West End Restaurant and Sandbar. The only word I can use to describe the food is "Outstanding". I would definitely recommend the Texas Red Snapper and The Drunken Chicken. The only thing better than the food was the great service my wife and I received from the staff. Thanks Keith and Brandon for making us feel special. You guys are the best.

“Great Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We had dinner on saturday night Dec 8. We had a table of twelve and had a great service and the food was good. We had a variety of seafood and steaks. The Sunset Tuna was very good. Would visit again. The place is not very large and upstairs above the outdoor bar at the marina. Everything was just right.

“A Big Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Rented a beach house in Sea Island and found out they had restaurants in the subdivision. Ate at the Sandbar (downstairs) for lunch which was relaxing and outside by the marina with great drinks. Then at 5:00 the upstairs opens, The West End, to my surprise when you walk in there are tables with white table cloths and candles lit on each table. I was not expecting something so nice in this beach and fishing area. The food was just as good, the restaurant looks out over the water. $25.00 plus for an entree but very nice.
