About
Sky Bar offers an edgy warm, colorful feel that perfectly complements their exceptional food and service. The comprehensive menu includes choices ranging from the freshest sushi rolls that constantly push the limits of creativity, two choices of Certified Angus Beef® steaks, to an abundance of options for non-sushi eaters and vegetarians. Watch the seasoned chefs prepare sushi and sashimi at the granite sushi bar. “It would be hard to find a trendier restaurant in Galveston than Sky Bar. It serves creative sushi combinations made from sea bass, tuna, and salmon in an ambiance that seems to have more in common with Santa Monica than the nearby Strand district of Victorian splendor.” -The New

From a pure food and service standpoint I’d give this place a 5, but they allow patrons to smoke in the outside eating area. The couple next to us lit up non stop which totally ruined our dining experience. Ownership could easily prohibit smoking. Statistically...a lot more people don’t smoke so they’d be catering to the majority if they prohibited smoking. People should be able to enjoy a meal without constant smoke being blown in their direction. Would we go back? Probably, but we’d sit inside.More

I wish I had more of an experience to share but unfortunately we waited for over 20 minutes (the ONLY people on the waiting list) for a table for four only to have a snotty waitress give the newly open table to a couple that...JUST WALKED in the door. When I told her that we had been waiting, she said she didn't know but I pointed to the reservation list on the hostess stand and that we were clearly the ONLY ones on there. She said I guess we will have to move you guys to the couple and I walked out to get my family. I saw her walk out to the restaurant next door and then looked in and the two people had not moved to a two person table but was STILL sitting at a large table (the only one in the place) instead of being moved. I could NOT believe it. I have never been treated with such little regard!!! We are polite, kind, and very generous tippers. I guess they don't care very much about having a good reputation or gaining new customers. And this was on a MONDAY!!! I can't imagine the service when it is actually busy. Extrememly offended and disappointed. Will never return. We will also not be going to any of their sister restaurants like the Gumbo Bar.More

I’ve had a few bad times at Skybar, but Ms. Lette and Starr more than made up for it. Both were very attentive and made wonderful recommendations. The ahi poke bowl was flavorful and fresh. The chicken Katsu was huge and juicy, we will be...back. Thank you ladies for the wonderful evening.More

While looking for a place for dinner, we happened to pass by Sky and decided sushi was for dinner. While we had to wait for a table, we were now worried. We had nothing better to do. After about 10 minutes, we were seated and...learned that it was happy hour. The happy hour prices for sushi were very good. We got a couple of appetizers, crab rangoons and seven spice calamari and both were delicious. Our sushi arrived soon after and we began to feast! The portions were great for the price and everything tasted awesome. Our waitress Starr, was awesome as well. She made sure our drinks were full and always checked on us. We would give her 5 "Starrs" for her service! (Get it...her name is Starr). We will be coming back here more frequently, we found our new happy hour spot!More
