Took the Family to the Sandbar Grill our first night on vacation. This is our New Regular Stop when we are in town. Great Food, Service and Atmosphere. They have ICE COLD BEER. We loved the live music. We'll Defiantly Be Back.

We ate at both restaurants, the fine dining, and the downstairs restaurant during our stay in Galveston. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and watching the sunset.

Good food. Fun atmosphere. Great place for a group of family and friends. Most enjoyable when the weather is mild because the deck sits on the water.

The upstairs restaurant in first class with a great selection of seafood and streaks. Service is great, but be sure to make reservations. Not the cheapest food on the island, but well worth the price. Ask for Brandon as your waiter. Very attentive and knows...More
