“Don't waste your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We arrived on the Island after a very long trip, hungry and ready for a good steak and seafood. We have visited Galveston many times and had never been to the Flamingo's. We thought it looked nice and when we got to the door it actually had a "tripadvisor" sticker logo on the door. The atmosphere was a little odd for a steak and seafood place, but we were there for the food not the decorations. Our waitress was very outgoing but slow - at the end of our meal I finally had to go find her for our ticket. We ordered a dz. raw oysters they were o.k.. My husband ordered a T-bone that the menu said was fire grilled, I ordered the fish and shrimp platter. Upon arrival of our food we were surprised at my husbands steak. It was less then a half inch thick, had no grill marks on it and tasted like soy sauce and was super salty. His potatoes were burnt black. Our bill was around $70.00. I would not recommend this place to anyone, we left and went to Krogers and bought a sandwich.

One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. Food was outstanding (love that burger), staff was friendly and efficient.. and the place looks amazing!

“Good Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went to try out the restaurant several weeks ago and was not disappointed. Very nice décor and the lunch menu was varied and moderately priced. The food was good and the service was excellent. You know a place must be good when the parking lot is almost always full. Good selection of meat and seafood. So far the quality of the food and service has been great so I will be back many more times when in the mood for a meat entrée.

“Pretty good for spring break week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Not too bad. Food was okay as well as service. A little overpriced for what you get, but okay overall.

“Great seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The red snapper was an excellent choice. It was fresh and flavorful. People at the table next to ours ordered it from the smell of my wife's plate. If there are no tables, eat using bar full service, as we did. This is truly an upgrade from the Chinese Buffet that had this spot before Hurricane Ike.$$
