This restaurant serves excellent food, and the service was great! If I could give half point ratings, it would be a 4.5, but.....we shared a romaine wedge, crab cakes and bouillabaisse--just the right amount for two (60's) people. And our cocktails were well mixed. Would go back in a heartbeat.

My daughter and I had dinner there before a show. You need to make reservations because they book up quickly on show nights. We shared several appetizers and an Apple Cider Salad. Everything was amazing! I hope to go back very soon.

This came recommend by a friend who lives in the area and we were not disappointed! Snapper was fantastic and very well presented. Great wines and the chocolate lava cake was exceptional. Service was excellent. Very pretty restaurant.

Got so much more than I expected! DH and I both had the amazing lobster bisque, which was not only delicious but had actual chunks of lobster meat in it! I've had my share of bisque and must say that this was one of the best! I had the Warm water Australian lobster risotto and, again, was pleasantly surprised when... More

We have been going here every year for at least 10 years (except for Hurricane Ike year) and it pleases everyone every time. They get their seafood from Katie's off the docks and it's the freshest around. My mom is a professional cook and she only gets her seafood from Katie's. The tuna tower is delectable and for the turf... More

We had gotten tired of the same ole places on the strNd and tried this place. I am so glad we did. The atmosphere is more upscale but shorts are welcome. The lobster risotto is the best item on the menu!!

Went here for my birthday while in Galveston. The food was delicious (bouillabaisse, red fish ponchetrain, sea bass) and prices are very reasonable for the quality received. The desserts were also divine; we tried 4 different ones!
