“Now this is Jimmy Buffet style beach casual - Yes!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We had just been to Pier 21 which was an interesting area but it was time to eat and we were unsettled - eating establishments there all seemed too stuffy and fancy for us. So we headed back to the beach and stopped at the first place that had parking nearby on the seawall. That's how we stumbled onto The Beach Hut. So glad we did!
Casual and fun. Beach music and beach volleyball going on right outside plus terrific view of the ocean. There is an outside deck, but it was hot so we sat under cover which was open air with nice breezes. Our teens thought they were really something, because we sat at the bar. I think "Under 21" is allowed up to a certain time in the evening - we ate at mid-day and saw "little ones". One family had their little dog along; another group was doing shots celebrating a birthday, so it's something for everyone and oh so casual. It was busy and we had a long wait for food, which was average. Mostly just enjoyed soaking in the atmosphere. Staff was friendly. We bought a coconut monkey head bank for a souvenir. I would recommend and come back!

“Beach bar; just what you'd expect.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in here and had a couple of drinks during happy hour. The drinks were not strong, but at those prices, you can always ask for a stronger pour or order more drinks. (I usually opt for the latter.) We didn't try the food. The deck out back is where it's at: live music while we were there, and beach volleyball on the sand. You get to sit and drink, and look at the ocean. Dress code is non-existent. All in all, it delivers. I can heartily recommend this bar.

“Burgers and Blues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Real music. Thanks, Blue Louie. Service was good, and - being happy hour - food was good value. And we had the ocean. What more can I say?

“What a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great location ON THE BEACH in Galveston. Not a fancy place but fun in the sun. On a trip with my wife and my sister we stopped in. Had some beer and barely adequate food. The view and the sea breeze were what we stopped for and thats what we really enjoyed.
