For some of the best seafood in the Galveston Bay Area a visit to Top Water Grill is a must. Located on Galveston Bay surrounded by water, not only is the food top notch but the lively marina activity and local wildlife are sure to...More

You can sit inside or enjoy the swing-tables outside. The food was great and loved the oysters. Seafood these days seem to be pricier than it used to be, but this is worth it.

We always enjoy our visits to this restaurant. It has never let us down with the good food and good service. It is a little bit out of the way to drive out, but it is worth making the effort to drive over when traveling...More

Top Water is just a cool place for hanging out with friends, eating a shrimp po’boy and having a few beers. The service was excellent and the view is worth the trip. It’s not Cozumel, but a beach day anywhere is almost always better than...More
