A neighborhood place...Good food, good people

The drinks were good, the food was good and the prices were right. We enjoyed it. When we were back in Galveston we decided to give it anoth try. It... read more

Definitely the best calamari ever! Loved the full bar and touch tunes jukebox! It was cool to watch the oysters spit water from the decks all around the place!

If you enjoy waiting for ever for service and a drink and enjoy the feeling of bugs crawling all over you, then this is the place to be.

Decided to have lunch there on Saturday with another couple. While it was busy and the service was a bit slow, we enjoyed a cold beer and sandwiches that were just great. My burger was $7.50 but if you have a "hankering" for a great burger and cold beer, you can't go wrong. Others had the shrimp poboy, oyster poboy... More

How do I start.. I have never written a review for a restaurant before but I'm making this known on every possible avenue. This is the third place I am putting this review. How do you write about finding LIVE INSECTS crawling in your fish taco? Not one, but two (we didn't open the others to see if there were... More

I see a number of people are complaining about the service. I have stopped by Pier 30 many times on my way to my beach house. I have experienced slower service when they are really busy on a nice day but go with the flow. The staff is always friendly and they have a great selection of food at reasonable... More

There's definite GOOD here and definitely BAD here. The good is that only hit here on a weekday afternoon - very slow paced, few people but that allowed us to wander the decks - upper and lower - to our heart's content and play pool in the open air back bar. The bad is this is built on the edges... More

I am a local in Brazoria County and I have been to pier 30 many times on many different occasions. I have to say that Saturday will be the last night I ever give them another dollar. Let me explain….

We've been going to Pier 30 since it opened and have noticed that the service and quality of the food has steadily been going down hill. Saturday was the last straw. When we finally received our order of fried pickles (priced at $5.99+tax by the way) it consisted of only TEN quarter-sized pickle slices! Any business should be embarressed to... More

Worst dining experience I've ever "tried" to have. Granted it isn't anything fancy, but basic restaurant functions usually include the following: a server who stops by your table within a few minutes of your seating, busing of prior guests leftover beer bottles and cups etc, taking of a new order and finally delivery of a (hopefully) tasty meal. None of... More
