We came here in a Sunday afternoon for lunch. It wasn’t crowded and we were seated very quickly. We had a shrimp po-boy, chicken sandwich and kids Mac and cheese. We ordered the chicken grilled but it came out fried. Everything else was prepared correctly....More

This restaurant is a favorite when I have out of town guests. The food is consistently very good and service is always quality. The menu is a bit pricey

The stuffed jalapeno used to be awesome. I would drive many miles as I did this weekend and was very disappointed. The service was mediocre. I may never eat there again and I will not go out my way again.

Expensive. Must be the touristic location. The food is mainly fish dishes. Well prepared and tasty. The ambience is plain. Nothing special

Excellent seafood and a great view. Shrimp Kisses are a must for appetizer. Catfish was fantastic and the wife had Mahi Mahi excellent also. This is a very good place to eat.

The happy hour is M-F, 3pm to 7pm. Most of the drinks drop to half-price, so it's a great deal. Plus where else can you enjoy such a relaxing view of the Kemah channel\Galveston Bay while having some great oysters and a... More
