Visited for lunch on day trip to Galveston. Had to queue but process was well organised and didn't take too long. Ordered and paid for our food and managed to find good table outside. Food was tasty and freshly cooked.

We loved this place. Margaritas and food were delicious and the people were so wicked friendly. Ate the burger, fish tacos and enjoyed tequila. 😊We went twice in one week on vacation.

We enjoyed our experience here. Kids meals were reasonably priced and good quantity. We sat outside overlooking the sea wall. It’s many different establishments under one rooftop.
