This popular restaurant and club never disappoints.the food upstairs is consistently good with a wide variety of seafood, burgers or steaks. The views of ships in the intercoastal and sunsets over the bay are worth the trek from Galveston. Weather permitting, there is often good live music downstairs where you can find a lively bar and a few games with... More

We ate here with our kids while on a trip to Galveston. The ferry ride across is worth it alone - despite a long wait to get on the ferry, it's fun! The drive to this spot is pleasant and the location is great with the harbor and ship views as ships - large and small - go by. We... More

Great view of the intercoastal waterway with lots of boat traffic and a marina. Bar is popular with locals and tourists during the high season (April - September)

In the water with nice views. Great food, outstanding service. Could not have had a better time. If you don't try this place, you're really missing out on a great experience.

We had a great view of the waterway and it was a nice atmosphere. My wife and father-in law had the chicken fried steak and raved... More

We like to go to Stingaree's for their fried shrimp and fish. They've been doing it the same way forever. The restaurant is right on the intracoastal, so you can watch boats go by and also catch great sunsets.

Thank LakewayPete
