Had good experiences at Seawall location, so had to try this one.
First time, had to drive away -- No Place To Park!! Only street parking, and not much of that.
Second time got lucky and grabbed the last parking place anywhere around.
Redfish was good, solid. Sides were tasty.
Service was just ok. Server was obviously not experienced.
Location seems relatively small, and few customers that evening. Very little parking, kind of out of the way, a hard place to make a go of it.

Had dinner on a Saturday night, food was good but too much fried food, no fault of the restaurants. Saw happy hour specials and decided to return for that on Tuesday. $2 Hurricanes were tasty!! All the appetizers were half price. The bartender on duty, Belle, was very helpful in helping us make a selection. We tried a combo which was great and then ordered crab nachos - delicious!! (had to take some home) Previously had the Garlicky mussells - can't wait to get them again. We are lucky enough to live close by to Galveston and I plan to return for more happy hour specials!! Nice casual feeling!

We had to let the employees that there was no paper towels in the restrooms. Food was pretty good. May I suggest providing just more than one thing of wipes. The view was nice and the manager was very informative about the area when I would ask questions.

We stopped here back in Sept. 2012. The food is great like at any Joe's Crab Shack. We love the view of the Harbor. We even got to watch a Carnival Cruise Ship sail away. The kids loved it! The staff was friendly. We arrived at the perfect time when it wasn't too busy. :)
