Seafood
Ideally situated next to the Historic Strand District, the Tall Ship Elissa and Galveston Cruise Terminal, enjoy waterfront dining at Fisherman’s Wharf. One of the best seafood restaurants in Galveston, Fisherman’s Wharf is a great place to enjoy a leisurely meal with all dining areas indoor or outdoor on the patio offering a view of the bay. Known for its famous Shrimp Kisses (bacon-wrapped and stuffed with jalapeño Jack cheese), selection of daily fresh fish, signature combination platters, and more. A Texas sized establishment perfect for one or one hundred, Fisherman’s Wharf is a legacy of great seafood since the 1940s. The site originally housed a shrimp and fish “factory” – an old tin building where mountains of Gulf shrimp were readied for shipment across the country. Shrimp from this very place was served to President John F. Kennedy at the White House. In 1966, the current building was constructed to meet the growing demand for Galveston shrimp, which many have acclaimed as

    It was our first time there. We went on Valentines Day. Our server/service was very good! She was very friendly. I had the stuffed tilapia which was very good. Reasonably priced at $22 or so. My husband had the big platter $32 (which was overpriced in my opinion). Our friends had the market salad which looked okay and the fish and chips which were cooked too long. They said their drinks (some kind of sidecar I think) were very good My husband basically said that was his last visit. I would go again.

    We enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant. I had the lobster bisque which was amazing! There was lots of lobster in it with a wonderful overall consistency. I had the stuffed tilapia entree which was also very good. Service was great and the food was served hot and quick.

    We really enjoyed our meal. Our server was very sweet and knowledgeable of the menu. She didn't hover and she didn't just leave us, just the right amount of checking up on us. I loved the view, we got to look out on the water and view the USS Texas and watch dolphins swim while we dined. Great experience.

    Our family (8 people) had a nice time at this waterfront restaurant. We were pleased by the many choices at various price points. Some of our group weren't seafood lovers, but there were some choices for them. The food was not fabulous, but good enough.

    Probably wouldn't return with Katie's seafood right there. Went for happy hour but it's only served indoors for some reason. Crabcake was over seasoned and salty. Shrimp sampler was okay, nothing that stood out expect the bacon wrapped shrimp, those were excellent.
