No major complaints....the appetizer was yummy (something with crab & avocado) and the entrees were good, just nothing above and beyond. The downer was the bread pudding, which is normally served warm and gooey at other restaurants, was cold. Maybe that's the way the chef likes it, but I've never eaten it that way. Glad I tried the restaurant....will check... More

Thanks for your feedback, Shelley. I'm glad you enjoyed your appetizer and entrée. The bread pudding was a mistake on our part, we do serve warm and gooey bread pudding and customers come all the time just for that! I apologize and I would love to serve you one correctly next time you visit. Please let a manger know next... More

Had drinks at outside. Most excellent Margaritas and Long Island iced tea. Shrimp cocktail had 8-10 large shrimps. Demetria's mixology was spot on

Been coming here with my wife and kids for some years now and this time didn't disappoint again. Seems we always have a great meal here and the views of the bay are wonderful as well. The avacado shrimp appetizer is one of our favorites. The gyros are always good, but I wanted to try a little something different today.... More

Located on a working harbor with a great view of vessels going up and down the channel and dolphins frolicking in the bay. The best seafood and view of the sunset in Galveston. We offer private dining for between 10 and 300, and have accommodated many large functions such as the Commemoration of the USS Fort Worth, many weddings, bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. We are also within easy walking distance of the Strand on Pier 21.
