First class, old style seafood and steak restaurant. My husband and I both had snapper and loved it! The service was perfect. Great salads. Great, but expensive wine list. The creme brulee cheesecake was very original and delicious.

The service is top notch. The server is very attentive to every detail and very accommodating. The food is always fantastic and surprisingly, it doesn't take as long as one might think. My only regret is that I didn't leave room for dessert!

We have been going to the Galveston Walkabout for years (as in 10+ years) First Rudy and Paco support the Walkabout and are great people. Second, after we finish our group (there is about 5 to 10 of us, depending on the year) order a number of their appetizers and drinks after doing all the walking around downtown Galveston. They...

The service was good and the food was excellent. You need to make sure you make reservations because it is a very busy restaurant. We arrived at five with no reservations but were able to be worked in anyway. If we would have arrived any later they wouldn't have been able to seat us. Our waiter was Juan and was... More
