All I can say is we came here I think everyday either for Drinks n Appetizers on the 'porch' or for dinner. We literally hung out on the porch for a few hours to talk and eat while discussing properties we'd viewed. The servers did not care that we stayed and stayed... Plus the food was very good!

The food for happy hour was not very appealing. Drinks were good. Atmosphere good. We popped in early evening- great view of harbor.

I went for Happy Hour on their patio with my small dog. In the year I have lived in Galveston, so far the best service I have had was provided by Bianca at Willie G's. I cannot imagine a more helpful or professional server.

Nice restaurant by the piers. Good and friendly service. Great for happy hours and to sit outside with friends and/or family. Cats love it indeed...:-)

Even this place is owned by Landry's which encompasses some 400 restaurants, it still holds its own while putting out some tasty dishes. We started our meal off with the 'Bar Trash' which was jumbo lump crab and grilled shrimp in a garlic and butter sauce served with French bread for dipping. This was very tasty dish, for sure. We...

There is so much to try in Galveston, I probably wouldn't do this more than once. It has a nice outside patio but you can only see one little slice of harbor. The expensive menu had good looking seafood, and the Crab, Mango and Avocado Tower appetizer was tasty and easily split by 3 people, but the steak in the... More

A couple were eating dinner out in the patio and they were feeding two cats. Stick with the fish meals, because the steak Filet was tough. The favorite of our large party was Mahi Mahi. Great service for a party of 17.

The hostess was very rude and told us to wait on ourselves for drinks when we told her we wanted to be seated outside. Immediately after we sat down other patrons were seated and waited on by a waiter. Really? My husband went in to get our drinks and asked the bartender about it . Brandon a waiter overheard and...

Had a late lunch here on a Thursday afternoon, so no waiting. Very pleasant decor and friendly staff. Food was served promptly, well prepared and expertly presented. We had chopped spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette, and 7 oz. steaks, properly cooked to order. It was more than we could finish, so we didn't try desserts this time. Pricing what... More

I like the location. You might see a cruise ship slide by or school of dolphins. Our service was good. We were with another couple and all four meals turned out well.
