This chain restaurant is on Seawall Blvd, and is as good as anywhere. Fresh ingredients in their food and wait staff were attentive.

If you want to take a break from formal restaurants for nice casual sit down lunch or dinner McAlister is a terrific option. They have quality food including salads, soups, sandwiches, baked potatoes, M&C, other snacks and cookies. Their sandwiches are always fresh and make a large meal.

One of my favorite places to eat! It was even better to eat with beach views. It's right across from the ocean so it's super easy to come in and get a close fast meal.

I have to say first that I hold McAlisters to a higher standard, since they have always impressed me with their food and service. This location is in a very touristy area, which may contribute to the issues. Our food was good but not great. My wife's meal was totally right. My "Memphian" had all the meat in the middle(and...

My wife and I eat at McAlsiters Deli at home in Dallas, so on our recent trip to Galveston, we were pleased to see they have recently opened a McAlister's on the Seawall. Conveniently located, but not a lot of parking. Same menu, same prices, and same great food. We normally eat local cuisine while traveling but find it nice... More

Had both lunch and dinner here right on the Sea Wall, and would definitely go there again the next time we are in the area.

Right on the sea wall in Galveston, Mcslister's is a fine stop for a casual meal. Order from a selection of salads, sandwiches and soups at the counter, they are brought to your table in short order. The food is freshly prepared, lots of healthy choices and prices very reasonable. Service was also very helpful and friendly. Can't beat it... More

We stopped here for a bite to eat and enjoyed a loaded potato and club. The food was fresh and very reasonably priced. No complaints

Stopped in for a late lunch and was rewarded with pleasant staff and surroundings. Order and pay at the counter, then sit down. I had the grilled chicken Caesar wrap with a side of potato salad. Both were constructed of fresh ingredients, but tasted sort of bland. (There was a condiments tray on the table, which I did not use,... More

I would say... best Panini in the town, awesome salads and soups, especially chicken Tortilla... The atmosphere is friendly and nice, orders come out pretty fast, prices are not high. and I love the Teaf Freaks Days :)
