Everyone at the table had an excellent meal and our waiter, Justice, did a fantastic job! No need to consider any other restaurant for your night out, this is the one.

Since we made our reservation through OpenTable we checked in and were called within minutes. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly and easy to find when we had a question. The food was delicious. The only criticism was that the shrimp were a little small. But everything else was great and we saw several dolphins from our table while we were eating.

We arrived earlier than our reservation but they accommodated us as soon as they were able. Sat us by the window with an amazing view. All servers and wait staff were extremely helpful and kind. Food was absolutely amazing from the Mahi Mahi to the Red Snapper to the roasted brussel sprouts. We also had the RootBeer bread pudding which was AHHH-MAZING! Wonderful experience overall! Highly recommend. Would have loved to sit on the deck while dining but it was just too chilly...unfortunately. Make time to dine here during your visit to Galveston!

We loved it! We dined rather than just having dinner. The cocktails were perfect. The food was outstanding - fresh local redfish, oysters, lobster bisque. The unique rootbeer bread pudding was delicious. Our server - Zeke - was friendly and attentive. (We will ask for him next time.) The water view was really nice and everything was clean and safe, given the current dining restrictions.

Enjoyed our visit. Great location. We had reservations for 8 but 9 showed up and they accommodated us without issue. The deck we reserved was under engineering analysis which is understandable so we were seated on another deck. Safety first.

We’ve been here each time we visit Galveston. Although this is a chain we find it just fine. Service is always spot-on. Pricing is in line with quality. Atmosphere is great. Like we mentioned we’ve been here many times. So we do recommend it.

We sat in the Elissa room so, there was a stunning view of the ship. Our waitress was stellar. She went out of her way to make our dinner perfect. My husband had a special request, she went to the kitchen and made it happen. The food was fabulous. We agreed that the crab cakes had to be the best in town.

The food was good but not great for the price. The service was great. The outdoor space is really nice. My only complaint is that my daughter got her stomach upset right after leavimg the restaurant. She had the shrimp-chicken kids meal. It is not our first time on this restaurant. The opentable reservation worked great.
