Great Happy Hour here. $6 food items and $4.50 glasses of wine - a generous pour. Food is great, service is great and ambiance is great. Great Happy Hour!

We were looking for good seafood that was not overly commercial. This place has fresh seafood that was absolutely phenomenal. The lobster risotto is a must have and their red snapper is perfectly prepared. We will make this a regular stop from now on!

Every time we come to Galveston we eat here and we are never disappointed. The bbq fish with grits was a hit and the portion was huge. The gumbo and salads were great too.

We enjoyed the superb service and the homemade bread, but the outstanding lobster bisque left my tastebuds crying for more. The seabass was light, crisp, tasty. The almond-coconut crusted salmon was very nice. If only I wasn't still thinking about the lobster bisque... it's the...More
