We went to the rum bar & it was amazing! Beautiful views being on the second level. A variety of rum concoctions to choose from. The food was good too but nothing beats a tropical drink while overlooking the beautiful seas.

Great place right on the main Galveston drag. It’s a must stop at every time I visit the Island. Fun family friendly. Indoor or outdoor dinning. Must have the Shrimp Kisses. Great burgers also.

That's a pretty accurate description of a decent restaurant on the Seawall in Galveston. You wait in a long line to order at the counter and find a table (if you're lucky), they'll buzz you when yours is ready. You will grab your food and...More

The food at the spot is very good, but it is counter service meaning you order then go find a table which can be frustrating during busy times. The atmosphere is very fun and the staff are mostly very friendly. Overall I did not feel...More
