We dined there last night with 4 other friends. The best asset that they have is the view of amazing sunsets which we enjoyed. We live a minute away so we went there for convenience and not to get into traffic on a Friday night....More

The restaurant has some of the best views in Galveston, however, the food is average and the prices are high. We go every now and then when guests want to go to a different restaurant. Overall I'd recommend trying the snapper and some of the...More

Had dinner there the evening prior to our cruise. The meal was excellent, the scenery to die for. Fairly noisy place with many families with young children.
