Quick trip to Galveston on Christmas limited us as to choices for a bite for lunch. Fisherman's Wharf was open and we stopped in. A cup of lobster bisque to start was promising but my wife's shrimp scampi was under seasoned and my Captain's choice of fried and stuffed shrimp was very underwhelming. A few shrimp on a pile of fries. The fried shrimp had essentially no coating, and the stuffed shrimp was a fritter with a small shrimp inside. Fooled me once again. I have never eaten at a restaurant in this group and come away impressed. Very, very average at best. Save your money there are much better choices in Galveston.

Really good food, I had the pork chop and my friend had the redfish. It was all outstanding. The service was also very good.

I have been to Fisherman’s Wharf many times over the years and enjoyed every time. My recent visit had us seated at the bar. A very delightful experience with the staff so entertaining and pleasant. We ordered seafood and it was the best. I ordered a vodka martini lightly dirty which is always a challenge to get right and it was perfect. Watching the beautiful food being served was a treat. During our long weekend we opted to visit twice. Treat yourself and do this....

Not being hungry enough for a meal, my friend & i opted to share appetizers. We ordered Shrimp Queso, Fried mushrooms, me-gumbo/him-bisque, fettuccine alfredo & onion rings. Although Shrimp Queso sounds weird, it was delicious-we scraped the bowl, The shrimp did not overpower the rest of the dish. We both enjoyed our soups & after eating our fill of the fried mushrooms, there was still enough to feed a couple of other people. The onion rings were shoestring shape & not greasy at all. The fettuccine was not very flavorful but the waitperson gave me extra parmesan cheese to go & it perked up the dish when i ate it as a midnight snack. The wait staff was very friendly & attentive & definitely warranted the tip we left her.
