We finished a 5 hour fishing charter through Galveston Sport Fishing and the services of Captain Ricky McGaffey. We brought some of our catch to Marina Bar & Grill and they prepared it to perfection for a late lunch. The location looks over the marina in a covered deck/pavilion. The service was excellent, and they prepared the dish specific to our request. It was very well done and the atmosphere was very laid back. Our captain joined us for a sample of the fish and a beer. It was a great wrap-up to a successful day of fishing. Thanks for a great experience!

This place has pretty good food. Massive portion of fish. If you get that dish. But all the dishes are pretty fair. Overall it's really just a place for some locals to come hang out and have a drink or two,and some food.
I would not recommend somebody from out of town coming to Galveston, for the first time, to come visit this place. You might be sorely disappointed. But if fits just what we need here locally. The sunsets can't be beat. And the ship traffic in the harbor is nice to look at. The staff is very friendly. the owner is always on site. You just got be open-minded and realize where you are and what you're dealing with. We've never had a bad experience. It's just a little Coastal getaway.

Stopped by for dinner. Fish & chips were good: large and nicely spiced. The server was friendly and helpful.
But there is no handicapped parking at all that I could find. And you have to climb two stories of stairs to get there. When I got back to my car, my legs were sore and shaking. That does not make for a good dining experience.
Apparently the Yacht Club and its lessees have not heard of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I really don't like that.

We at Marina Bar & Grill appreciate your review and are definitely aware of the Americans with Disabilities Act. We have handicapped parking available in front of the dry stack building adjacent to the restaurant convenient for our customers use, as well as a downstairs patio accessible by a ramp for dining. Because this dining area is seldomly used, we ask that patrons call ahead so that we can accommodate them appropriately and receive excellent service. A bathroom that is wheel-chair accessible is also located downstairs under the restaurant. We hope this satisfies your concerns and that we see you again soon.

Stopped by one afternoon on a short visit to Galveston from Houston. The view is so relaxing and refreshing - you get to see the boats at the Marina and a view of the bay area. The shrimp po-boy sandwich was really good with a unique sauce and amazing crispy steak French fries. The staff is super friendly too! Definitely a go back spot to take friends.

Came here after work one day with a friend for a few drinks. He got the fried shrimp which was delicious and I got the beer battered fish and chips which was huge! The steak fries were perfect. Beer prices decent and live music on the weekends.
The best part was the view. It sits right on the harbor. You can watch the boats go in and out as well as catch a cruise ship coming in or out without the traffic of the seawall. Highly recommend!
