One of the best places to eat in Galveston! Everything was absolutely delicious, including our drinks. Can't wait to return.

We didn't want a full meal after a late lunch, so we stopped for appetizers and I choose the crab cakes. They were excellent. With just the right amount of spice in both the cake and the sauce served with them. Highly recommend for a light supper.

The menu has a lot to offer. Nobody will walk away hungry either. The seafood is always fresh. The service is great too. Very comfortable atmosphere too.

We visited New Year's eve (had a reservation); service, food, atmosphere and value were all excellent! The lobster risotto and boullabaisse were prepared perfectly and priced at about $25. Impressive! This was my second visit and I'll definitely return again.

The family loved this place. We made 5:15 reservations and were promptly seated and served by a very adept and doting waitress. They were very accommodating for our allergies and needs. I ordered the special (16oz Ribeye with asparagus and mashed potatoes) and my wife had the asian tuna. The server brought children's menu when we asked and answered all... More

This is a great place with an excellent location. Food is really good. I recommend the Asian Grille tuna. We are locals and support all the restaurants in the Galveston Restaurant Group. However, PLEASE either rename your "wedge salad" or make it a real wedge salad. A bunch of romaine lettuce stalks on a plate is by definition not a... More

Best restaurant two years running! I had the lobster risotto... chunks of lobster within, and a whole lobster tail on top! Delicious! Husband had crab cakes, corn and crab chowder, and a side of lobster risotto... he proclaimed everything more than excellent. Very friendly staff, excellent pomegranate cosmo..we'll be back.

Our table was ready right on time for our reservation. Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent - fresh and well presented. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. We walked across the street to a concert at the Opera House - perfect pre-concert dinner.

Had a great experience with this restaurant and I can highly recommend it. The atmosphere is casual, yet elegant. The decor is "ocean". It's a seafood place, what else? While it's a few blocks from the warf area and The Strand, the location is great. You can easily walk to the shops on the Strand. I liked the idea that... More
