“Lots to like, but .....”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Ate here twice on recent visit to MC. Disappointed in lake perch on first visit (can't compare to perch at Swingbelly's across the street) but lobster bisque surprisingly good and baked potato done perfectly. On second visit started out with drinks on the patio. Super server Richard let us take our time, "Texas Twister" appetizer good (nothing like fried food to complement drinks) and plenty to share. Patio is nothing special surrounded by parking lot but a pleasant evening to watch the sun go down and it's great to be by the lake (fun to see the bridge go up for a tall sailboat). We moved inside for dinner, chopped sirloin was perfectly grilled with onions and green pepper (huge portion, I should have shared with my husband), crisp salad and baked potato rounded out a good meal. Service was excellent on both visits, lively bar area, comfortable casual decor, good family atmosphere in restaurant. Have been coming here for years, always dependable, only complaint was perch wasn't quite up to previous standards. I'll be back!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Stopped on a Tuesday evening not aware of the two for $22 on Tuesday. There were 4 of us. The wait was maybe 10 minutes tops. The choice of entrees was wonderful. The food and service was awesome. The bread was delicious. Dessert was to be shared but they brought us each our own. Will definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.

“Mixed Feelings”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Our Server (Jeanine) was awesome!!! Food was not as good as I remember (haven’t been in a couple years). For a “Steakhouse,” one would think the “steak knives” would be sharp (the butter knife was sharper). And, the most disappointing, the “Panhandler Poppers” sauce is now a disappointing strawberry concoction.

“Fried Perch...Bone in Ribeye...Yum!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Visiting MC from Phoenix, driving around the lakeshore area we found this gem. Great patio. The summer breeze, great steak (perch too)/drink and friendly service (thanks Dawn P) made this night to remember.

“Fantastic ribs!!!!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Galveston is a great place to go for a family get together. The menu has a nice variety of dishes. I love their ribs!!! The ribs are fall off the bone tender. The sauce is just right. Always friendly service in a casual atmosphere. Be prepared to take some home:)
