Pizza has very thin and crispy crust. Spouse had pepperoni and I had vegetarian. Both were excellent. Mine had fresh basil in addition to the veggies. I had a good salad as well. We've gone at lunch and dinner time and always been happy with our meals. A lot of its business is takeout.

We have gone back several times. Salads are great, hamburgers are delicious and pizzas are amazing. The price is reasonable and the owner has worked really hard to give the place a new image. He uses fresh ingredients and everything is cooked from scratch so it doesn't come out super fast but it's worth waiting 10 min.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and wasn't sure what we had stepped into. We were the only customers there. It looked like they were in the middle of redecorating, the walls were oddly painted and it appeared the painting was still in progress. We had burgers and they were without a doubt, about the best burger I've ever had.... More

the bipolar owner is nuts...food is spotty and reviews follow same...either 5 or 1. Our experience is cardboard pizza and decent burgers with a nut case for server.

Bathroom, nasty is all I can say. Dirty urinal on wall, stains on toilet, and ive seen cleaner porta pottys. Burgers are very good, but fries normal store frozen... More

In a nutshell this place was definitely a little odd, which is ok because that's what they're going for, I get it. But be aware that the pizza is just ok, and VERY thin cracker-type crust (not my jam, I'm a NY style kind of girl; Mario's West End nailed that one!). Toppings were fresh, price reasonable. Basically may or... More

Food was just okay, nothing to brag about. But they forgot one of our burger meals and gave us the wrong pizza. They said they gave us a large instead of the small we ordered, but when we opened it, it wasn't even the right pizza. They have some very young workers in the back. Look to be 13-14 years... More

Disappointed Texan, The employees are 15. I have been here six years, on the West End of Galveston & I started with older employees. But on the west end of Galveston where the methamphetamine & cocaine flow like water, it is rare to find an employee of a particular age other than "young" who will not end up stealing from... More

We discovered the BLT at Bluewater a few years ago and have made it a priority whenever we come to the island. Yesterday was a big disappointment. The BLT is now made on a hamburger bun. It was still good but they had no sweetener for the iced tea so we ordered sweetened and yes it was too sweet. We... More
