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.

My family and I visited Stingaree for lunch and loved it. I had their fried fresh snapper and it was delicious. They will give you plenty of food so don't worry about portion size. 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.

My husband and I went to Crystal Beach for a long weekend to rest, beachcomb, and eat to celebrate our 29th anniversary. I had read about Stingaree's on TripAdvisor and decided we would give it a try. It was so good we had to eat there twice!!! Both times we had leftovers to take back to the beach house. It... More

We started with 6 Shrimp Stingers.....bacon and cream cheese wrapped shrimp. Super good and super fresh! Very hot to the touch, so don't get in a hurry when they hit your table! Each of us ordered the shrimp platter. OMG I needed a calculator to figure out just how many shrimp were on the plate! Oh wait a minute....I forgot... More

Stingeraree Restaurant is always on our list of places to go when we are in the Galveston Texas area. It is well worth the ferry trip over to the Boliver Peninsula and the drive to Crystal Beach to experience this most authentic dining experience. Set on the inter coastal canal and next to a boat launch where bunches of fishermen... More

I am a traveling musician and our band picked up at Stingaree. The way we were treated for a "bar performance" was above and beyond. The staff offered to help load in and out for every show. The food provided was amazing. Even the owner hand poured our "mugaritas"! We were able to stay close by so we came in... More
