They were not busy and the service still was bad. Out of bread, really! So they brought crackers that were stale, still in the plastic so how old do those have to be, couldn't eat them. And it is WAY TOO expensive for what you get. Won't be returning and it's 1 mile from my home.

The food at this place is really awesome. We sat on the patio with the view overlooking Lake Como. The bacon wrapped shrimp were super, steak was delish, and fried oysters were really good. Drinks were decent, beer was good. Staff was very friendly. Our friends talked about having a wedding reception to the staff so they took us on... More

You look out over Lake Como that leads in to Galveston Bay. The food is very good. They specialize, of course, in sea food.

Went with my family for dinner. Waiter was horrible. Never got my beer or my soup. Water glass had salad dressing all over it. 2 hours for casual dinner. We won't be going back.

We only visited once and maybe we hit a bad day, but of the 5 of us who went, only one of us enjoyed our meal. 2 of the items we ordered were not available (and sounded good) but we will never know! So we went with some second choices and they were not very tasty. My husband said the... More

This was great! Calamari and shrimp kisses to start, big buttery oysters, coconut shrimp, snapper laurie: everything we had was delicious and well-presented. Marshall was our waiter, very attentive and helpful. A little over-priced, but we will likely be back.

Great service and food . We went there on the 4thof July last year and it was fascinating. There were good music as we wait for the fireworks. Best place to be in Galveston on the 4th of July

Service was slow, but friendly staff. Order was taken by our waiter but brought out by someone else who auctioned the orders off at the table; tacky for the prices they charge. And they weren't that busy. Sat at the table for quite awhile before plates were removed when we were done. Great wine selection for a small place. Mediocre... More

Enjoyed the neat scenery when we ate there last week. The food was quite good and filling. We also got a picture of the gorgeous sunset when we walked out on the dock. Several people commented on it also.
