“Can't go wrong with this seawall restaurant!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Wonderful views, good food, homemade desserts, full bar, friendly service...what more do you need? We had a delicious early dinner and watched the waves - very relaxing. The homemade Key Lime Pie was yummy!

Tip - save your receipt and you can use it to access the fishing pier for a nice walk over the water after dinner.

“Cool Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We went for dinner last night. We really liked the open air seating and the amazing view. Our waiter was very friendly and even drew us a map to a good beach. My husband and son had fish and said it was very good. I had the shrimp tacos; they were just okay. Crab cakes were awesome, so was my piña colada. Only negative was that we were told the kitchen couldn't cook our crab-stuffed jalapeño poppers or calamari, as one of their fryers was out. Bummer, but I guess "stuff" happens. I'd definitely go again. CUTE gift shop too!

“GREAT OVERALL EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This was the first dinner we had upon arriving in Galveston the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. There was a 45 minute wait so we sat at the bar for a beer and we ordered our appetizer. Service at the bar was 5 star. We ordered fried pickles and fried calamari and both were excellent. For dinner, we sat outside over the water which was perfect and breezy. Fried oysters were perfect and the fish tacos were awesome. Our waitress recommended the key lime pie and it did not disappoint. Highly recommended!!!
