Meal presentation was awesome and the drinks and wine selection is good. It is downtown and they have their own parking lot, a plus.

We were on Galveston Island for 4 days. This was by far our most memorable and delicious dining experience. Located in the historic downtown area. Atmosphere is upscale, but the gourmet fresh meals are surprisingly inexpensive. The staff was awesome as well.

Absolutely love this restaurant! Fresh seafood. Go for the daily special and you can't go wrong. I've been to lunch here multiple times and have always had an excellent meal. Highly recommend the daily special. They're not busy at lunch so no reservations required. Staff are attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant. When given the choice I always go with Saltwater...

This is one of the best bar/restaurants on the Island. They have a great staff that hasn't had a high turnover. I particularly like the bar and not unusual to see many friends there on Friday nights. Gary Barnes, who runs the bar, is the absolute best.

I used to go to this place every time I visited Galveston in the past, but hadn't been for years. I went last weekend w/ a friend and wasn't disappointed. We decided to eat at the bar, although we could have been seated at a table right away. The service was great as always, but the food surpassed even that!... More

This is an upscale restaurant that has excellent food. The soups are very delicious, entrees that are wonderful and desserts that are to die for. What else can I say. Oh yes, drinks were great also.

We didn't want a full meal after a late lunch, so we stopped for appetizers and I choose the crab cakes. They were excellent. With just the right amount of spice in both the cake and the sauce served with them. Highly recommend for a light supper.

The menu has a lot to offer. Nobody will walk away hungry either. The seafood is always fresh. The service is great too. Very comfortable atmosphere too.
