Diner Reviews
  • "good place for fine dinning; but not great this past Sunday."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Definitely an excellent steak house with scenic view. 10oz strip...$82?? We stuck with the very fresh and delicious seafood."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • " Menu is promising but food very disappointing. Tuna tartar was tasteless and not fresh. The lobster and burrata was not fresh and the lobster was not edible. The steaks were blandly seasoned. The $50+ steaks were not of high quality and were not properly prepared. Drinks were well made and sides of mushrooms and spinach were good. Noisy dining room."

  • "We've been to #13 several times - all exceptional experiences! However, this Sunday, we dined for brunch (limited menu) and after placing our order, I was later informed the kitchen had actually run out of lobster for lobster roll. My second choice, Shrimp Cocktail, was also shot down 20 minutes after placing the order, when the waiter came back to deliver the news that the kitchen was now also out of cocktail shrimp! So, let me get this straight - a seafood restaurant is out of it's key ingredients: lobster and shrimp! Wait staff was not informed and customer not informed until after placing 2 orders. Additionally, famous pop-overs were undercooked. As a result were wet and chewy; service very slow. Wine & Beer arrived well after entrees."

  • "Not the first time there but always enjoy number 13: love that we have a resturant on the water!!"

  • "Fantastic new place on the Bayou. All around first class facility. Management's focus on service and fine dining is apparent all throughout the restaurant. Fabulous bar areas both inside and out provide a relaxed yet vibrant cocktail hour with family and friends. Beautifully appointed restaurant with wonderful bay views make for an enjoyable dining experience enjoying perfectly prepared dishes. The best on the island."

  • "We had dinner at Number 13 and found it to be a wonderful restaurant. The view across the bay was nice and the food and service were excellent. I would say the Quail appetizer is the best quail I have ever had. The staff was very nice and accommodating. This waterfront gem is a rare find and we will certainly return. Wayne"

  • "My wife and I planned a trip to Galveston and found Number 13 on line. We were very impressed with the quality of the food, the atmosphere and service. It was an enjoyable evening that we'll remember. From our arrival where we were seated promptly with a water view that had been requested at time of reservation. We were then provided warm towels in preparation for our dining experience. The server was attentive by keeping up with our water glasses, asking if another round from the bar might be needed and did so without being the hovering kind of server. The timing on the courses was spot on as we had adaquate time to converse during the evening, enjoy the views and we were never rushed.All in all, I would highly recommend Number 13!"

  • "It was my husband's 59th birthday coming up and he suggested that we forego presents and I take him on a trip instead. Galveston came to mind and I used Trip Advisor and Open Table to find "number 13". It was truly awesome!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The ambiance, atmosphere and food were excellent. The salad was very fresh and the portions were quite large. The 8 oz. prime filet was fabulous. One of the best I have ever had. The redfish was delicious, moist and tender with a wonderful marinade. Whipped potatoes were wonderful. Our waiter complemented the dinner with a peach apple croissant with ice cream for dessert."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food, while good not worth the price. The service was superb, the atmosphere in keeping with the service and the casual dress code mirrors waterside eateries frequented by yachtsmen and fishermen all over the Coasts of the US."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The restaurant is beautiful with lovely decor. But the quality/taste of food does not warrant the prices. I've had MUCH before food elsewhere. The server was great but we did have to ask for water refills twice. If you want the quality, go to Killen's in Pearland."

  • "We went for lunch and loved it...Would go back...Welcome to Galveston..."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Menu is too narrow and eclectic, portions are small, very over-priced"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "excellent all around.sesonal + local, service outstanding. then there's the view, thought we were@ the yacht club."

  • "13 is very inviting; the ambiance is very nice. The service is very slow. Food was average at best and was overpriced. Wine was way overpriced, even for an upscale restaurant. We ordered a bottle of mid-range priced white wine. The bartender mistakenly brought a bottle of red by the same winery. He did not realize the mistake until he poured a taste for us. He apologized, put the cork in the bottle, set it aside and returned with the correct bottle. Shortly thereafter, the manager took the opened bottle of red to the couple next to us and said that it was a great bottle that they would love. He talked them into buying the wine and feigned opening it with a corkscrew. Don't know for a fact, but he probably charged the full fare."

  • "I wold say give it a try. Still needs a bit of work when it comes with the cooking. Steak not cooked as ordered. Cheeseburger came with sliced potato. The menu states pommes frites. Was not pommes frites! I would return for drinks and the amazing quail from appetizer menu. Quentin, our waiter was very nice and attentive."

  • "This is our third time dining at Number 13 and love this restaurant! McKensie has been our waitress each time and she is awesome!! The dry aged tenderloin is fantastic!!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "They over cooked our steaks twice and then charged us for twice the amount of food. It was taken care of but for that price the food and service should be great. I could do it better at home."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "From the food to the view to the service, Number 13 does not disappoint. I have had brunch, lunch and dinner here and the experience has always been excellent. The food is exceptional with good flavors and presentation. The wine selection is very good and covers all price points. The service is very professional and you do not feel rushed to turn over the table. Midweek lunch usually doesn't need a reservation, but weekend brunch and dinners need reservations."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "MacKenzie was an awesome waitress: very knowledgeable and attentive with our selections and always there to see if we needed anything! :) The presentation of the food and wine were top notch! The steak and the salmon were to die for and then the chocolate puff of cake or is it pudding? Or is it cake? Who cares when it is warm and just the right amount of sweet to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth at the end of a fabulous meal. Thank you to the chef and the manager that both came and checked on our table just to say hello! :) We will definitely be back!"

  • "Went there for the 4th of July happy hour, (started at 8. We stayed till the fireworks at 9:30). Ordered a couple of Margaritas each and had the sliders and the tacos. Drinks were average. The sliders were one each order & very salty, sort of dry - no juice, and the Tacos were terrible. I can't remember any worse tacos in my whole life. I used to laugh at Ta___ Bel__. This is even below that. However the inside area where they seated us at the beginning looked really nice. Then they told us that we had to sit outside with the mosquitoes if we wanted the happy hour food."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Number 13 was truly one of my favorite places. Really love the food and the wait staff. Why I will not be going back till the winter is that they do not have adiquate A/C. The place is just to hot during the summer."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary, and every single thing was fantastic! The drinks, appetizer, meals, and desserts went above our expectations! Our waiter (Bryce) answered every question we had about the menu perfectly and even had our dessert taken off for our anniversary! Best meal and experience we have ever had!"

  • "Good but over priced and limited menu, nice bar menu, nice view"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This visit was a big improvement over the last one. Dry aged strip was very good. Redfish just OK. Service was adequate but still does not match the prices and what this place is trying to be - had to ask for bread, they couldn't find a pepper mill, etc. Number 13 is at a crossroads in my opinion. They either need to really ramp up service and install a dress code to match their exisiting prices or lower their prices and remain where they are. I don't think Galvestonians want another stuffy restaurant but allowing folks in wearing bathing suits and flip flops while I'm trying to endjoy a $300 meal for two is a disconnect."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I are foodies from Galveston. We enjoy good food, good service, and friendly atmosphere. We have been to Number 13 4 times and have enjoyed every visit. The service is excellent and our waitress made us feel welcome. The food is outstanding. The restaurant is great for a lazy Sunday brunch or romantic date night meal. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food wasn't very good and over priced. The steak was advertised as dry aged beef but what we received was a steak that had lots of fat and not very good. I did like the view and the energy outside with live music being played. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food was excellent, steak a bit under seasoned but otherwise no complaints. Not upset considering it is a relatively new establishment "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I have been to Number 13 about a dozen times and I have to be honest with myself... The staff is excellent... When the Chef is in the kitchen, the food is excellent... At lunch , its usually the Sous Chef... And the food at best is average... My burger was cooked at the wrong temperature... If you want to excel, be at least consistent... Also, there are flies all over the restaurant, a fine dining establishment needs to fix this issue... If you can't keep the front of the house clean, how bad is the back of the house? I am not going to eat there again if the Chef is not in the kitchen..."

  • "Great view of the coast waterway but disappointed that having had a reservation, one diner was able to enjoy the view while the other had been seated with back against the view. Service was friendly. As far as the food...we ordered the small 'grand amuse' (cold seafood selection) for our appetizer, menu stating it was for 2 but was enough for 4. The crab claws were mealy, the lobster pencil-eraser tough and inedible and the tune tartare was bland. VERY disappointing especially @ $85. We told our server about the issues and she said she would inform the chef but nothing came of it. Steaks were good but VERY expensive and the sides were $12 each, overpriced by any standard. Total check for two $385. Worth it? No. Go elsewhere."

  • "Looking for a great place to celebrate a birthday and willing to spend the money for a great dinner. Disappointed with the food and service. Last ate here in February and wrote off short-comings to it just opening. Unfortunately, in spite of charging top-tier prices, the food was not well prepared and the service was very slow. I understand "island time" but 20 minutes just to get a drink does not serve the customer or restaurant well. I hope the restaurant improves as the setting is great and the island can always use another upscale dinning choice."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This was our first time at Number 13 and I would have to say they are a little different. The steaks were great, everything else was ok but just different. They had some stange stuff on the menu. I would probably go back for the steak but not much else. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Words cannot describe the fantastic service, and food that we experienced on our visit for dinner last Friday- will definitely be back, and have recommended it to several friends already. The gentleman who took the time to explain the wine selection is a huge plus to your staff and a credit to the establishment."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We had a nice, belated Mother's Day brunch at Number 13. Our waitress, Courtney, was the bomb! Not only is she efficient but she anticipated our needs and was a hoot! We really appreciated that they had a shawl that my daughter-in-law could wear, as she was a bit cold. The food was great, although for brunch it was a bit over priced for what you get. Although it was very tasty and perfectly cooked, I believe that they have their price-point too high. I hear the dinner's and steak are amazing - so we will definitely be going back. As a local, I am excited to have this new selection on the island. (oh, and their bloody mary bar was amazing!)"

  • " I am 62, comfortable & retired. I have also enjoyed Galveston all my life & have been a home owner on the island for the past 40 years. When making a reservation for my anniversary, I asked for a table next to a window so that we might enjoy the evening light on the water. We were seated at a 2 top with my back to the water & when I asked to be moved was told that the window tables were for larger parties. (New York attitude in Galveston Texas.) My wife & I have dined in almost every major country in the world, so we are rarely surprised by menu prices. We were surprised. Had we added a bottle of wine, dinner w/ tip could have easily topped $300,(for 2). Cost was not an issue, it was our anniversary after all. Sadly, we will not be back."

  • "Visited twice and both times steak was overcooked. Sides were average. Too expensive for less than excellent food."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Food and ambiance were impeccable. High-end dinning restaurant an added treasure for the Island. Wide variety to select from seafood, poultry, beef, lamb. Texas onion soup was out standing. Cocktails were perfection. "

  • "Limited but very good menu. Rather expensive. Good views of the bay and the adjacent yaucht basin. Wait staff quite attentive. "

  • "I brought my mother back to Number 13 and we had a blast again. We had two servers, Jordan & Michael. We liked them both, we loved the fact that Jordan took the time to elaborate about the fresh fish and menu and Jordan graced us with his presence with his attention to detail and charisma. We missed not having the lemon meringe dessert(it was sold out) but we will definitely be back again!"
