My family and I had lunch over looking The Gulf. I had the "Chorizo burger". Fresh baked Buns and the French fries have a crunchy coating on them. They are Very good. My Modelo Especial could have been colder. Overall my family liked their meal.

We have fished on the pier many times through the years but never took the time to eat at Jimmy's. The food was great and the service was excellent. I had the seafood nachos and my wife had fiesta salad. Large menu, generous portions at a fair price.

The service was friendly but the food was just awful. Over seasoned fish that did not seem fresh, terrible tasting french fries, mediocre drinks.

This was our 2nd trip Galveston as well Jimmy's on the Pier. It's a lot of fun sitting out over the water having nice lunch. It's extremely laid back and the is good however, it's the little location that makes it!

Beautiful view!! Great ambiance my kids and I enjoyed walking on the pier. The food was good but pricey. They have a cute shop below but to walking upstairs to the restaurant was tricky carrying a baby and stroller etc. We enjoyed ourselves for the most part

We stopped here for lunch on our way to the west end of Galveston. We sat on the side of the restauaunt, outside, facing the gulf. We had awesome service from start to finish. We ordered the calamari, a burger, clam chowder and a salad. All our items were fresh and delicious. Prices were as expected for a great seafood... More

The fish tacos and gumbo are amazing! This is a second floor restaurant over a shop and fishing pier. Service was great and food was delicious! You can get a free pass out on fishing pier if you order food. Fun drinks too! Dinner specials nightly. Simple beach theme decor. Seating inside and outside.

The setting is lovely and my husband and I watched the sunset over the water and the magic golf place across the road. The food however was so disappointing. It would have been easy to make decent food to accompany the setting and i could understand if the price was slightly higher because of the setting but unfortunately the food... More

We stopped by Jimmy's on the Pier for a quick lunch and enjoyed the fantastic view from their deck on top of the Galveston Fishing Pier. But make sure you watched the prices; we had a bit of sticker shock when the tab for tacos, a kids meal, and no alcohol came out to $50!

Service was quick, polite and friendly. Short waiting time. Sat outside looking out to sea, enjoying a meal. Good food. Then went for walk on the pier, plenty of fish being caught, but best of all was seeing Dolphins, absolute magic!
