Family dinner during spring break 2016 was delicious. This meal redemes Galveston service experiences at other Galveston seafood restaurants, very nicely.

The biggest (and one of the best) burgers I've ever had. Great atmosphere right on the pier so you can people watch. It's a new favorite place on the island.

Nice, white table cloth atmosphere and service was superb. Our waiter, JJ, really took care of our table. The food was very good, but not the best seafood or Italian food that we had on our trip. We had to wait about 30 minutes and several tables were still open when we were finally seated. We had a leisurely dinner... More

We stopped off for an afternoon beer and snacks on the terrace and the very good prawns and oysters persuaded us to try dinner later. The special of steak(flatiron,I think) and lobster tails(2) was well cooked and tasty,and salmon with crab and mushrooms ,despite being overcooked, was acceptable. With two glasses of wine a bill of 88dollars means it isn't... More

Went in around 2:00 pm for a late lunch and didn't get get seated to eat for 45 minutes although there were 15 empty tables. The food was good, but service was a bit slow. Most of the wait staff was in training and unsure of their stations and the menu.

Good food at a resonable price. I especially like their seafood - oysters in season & shrimp. It's a little noisy but the view is worth it.

On the harbor side of the island. Great outdoor seating as well indoor seating. Good wine list, full bar, and great selection of food. It is one of my favorite restaurants and always enjoy my time there ; I like to linger there with a drink or wine and enjoy the ambiance.

Food was marginal (aside from the fresh oysters), service staff friendly but service was not great. They make a great Manhattan!
