Visited with friends. Clam chowder was wonderful, chicken sandwiches for our non seafood eaters weren't too great. Fried fish/shrimp was excellent choice. Those of us that ordered seafood were impressed. The 3 that ordered chicken not so much. I understand it is a seafood establishment, however more options for those who do not eat seafood would be ideal. I would frequent this establishment more, knowing my family who doesn't eat seafood would have better dining options/better food. Service was good.

My wife and I stopped in here because it was near our hotel and looked sorta charming. We were told to go upstairs to the bar, and the hostess there had fallen asleep at her station, and slept through our finding a table. We ordered boiled shrimp, and the cocktail sauce was great, as was the quality of the shrimp. Delicious. But the waitress, mostly not around and the service, just ok. We ordered a daiquiri that, to be honest, tasted like it was from a can, and we left having spent nearly 35 dollars on nothing. Mostly a tourist place. I wouldn't drop in.

We were excited to eat at a local restaurant.......what a disappointment. The food was mediocre and the drinks were watered down. This place is definitely a tourist trap.....my steak was dry and no flavor, and the other 5 dishes we had were only half eaten......the view of the amusement park was cool....that is about the only good thing about this tourist trap.... Go to Joe s crab shack. Skip this place...

Was hoping to find a good fish place on our visit to Galveston. This is not the place. It’s just your average beach location, that was probably really good at one time. However now with its worn look, and lack of enthusiasm hostess, you can tell...this really is not going to be great.
The menu is plain and really unimaginative. You see people studying it for a long time, looking for something that sounds good. However what is offered does not seem like its worth what is charged.
I have to admit my fried fish sandwich was good, but for $15 I would hope it would be. Once agai pin...served with unimaginative, basic fries.
Nothing that special. I think we could have done a lot better, somewhere else.

Highly recommend, the food was great and the service was even better! We had the pleasure of having Alyona has our waitress! She recommended the shrimp kisses for an appetizer and it was DELISH! She was out standing!
