We came here for the nightlife.. First night was DJ and second night was live band.. Great little place to hang out at.. We enjoyed ourselves and then we moved on due to not too many people in there..

We stopped in for drinks one afternoon. Very good and reasonably priced. Large patio. Our waiter was new and very slow. We had to go inside to find him to get our check. Everyone seemed helpful and friendly. Food looked good. We will return.

Had to pick out a restaurant among many to choose from. Chose this one for the gatchy name and was not disappointed. Ordered the strawberry salad plus a cup of soup. Was a beautiful day so ate outside on the patio. Wait staff was very...attentive, food came quickly and was absolutely delicious. Nothing negative at all. Bill came promptly upon request.More

We had a great Greek salad then topped it off with a simple but fantastic pepperoni pizza. This was one of the best I’ve ever had. The crust was thin and crispy. The cheese was buttery and gave this pizza a great old-world taste. The...service was friendly and the atmosphere was clean and festive. They have a big outdoor seating. It’s on the Strand, so close to many shops and other eateries. We will go back!More

Good food with lots of choices - Mexican, seafood, pizza...that is why we went there. Everyone was able to get something they wanted. The pizza was good. My daughter enjoyed the shrimp po boy. My son got the shredded chicken burritos and really liked it....Big portions and plated creatively. The chicken fried steak was actually chicken fried chicken but the manager corrected it. We would go back in a heartbeat. Perk : cool mural on outside wall to take pictures in front of.More

This place was great. They allowed us to sit outside and still order from their bar menu as we basically came for happy hour. The drinks were generous and my tropical nachos were fantastic! Our waiter was so nice and, though our new, being trained...waiter had some problems, he obviously was just trying hard and was quite nervous. He did spill 2, yes 2 glasses of ice water on me but it was hot and so somewhat refreshing (after all it wasn't sticky and didn't stain). I was nice and did all I could to try to make him feel better about the mishap, and, like I said, it was refreshing. I was surprised though, that they didn't comp my drink or offer me a dessert, but all in all, I would definitely go back and have those nachos again!More

This was a wonderful meal. So good, we went twice. Had the shrimp wrapped with bacon. I am usually very careful, but the bacon was cooked. And we had the Mahi Mahi tacos. When we go to galveston we have local restaurants we dine. This...will be added. Can’t miss this wonderful food. It is located on the strand. Our service both days was excellent. Not intrusive. They were timely. One day we ate outside and the other inside.More

We went twice since being in Galveston and plan to do lunch again today. We tried different restaurants in the area but this one has the best food. The jerk chicken is awesome. I’m allergic to gluten and they tell you on the menu what...is gluten free.More
