We stopped here for a quick drink while we were walking around after the Elissa. We were very under dressed for this elegant restaurant. Justin was an awesome server. Helped us learn a few things about what we should do while we are on vacation!

The Pier 21 Parking Lot is right in front of Pier and the Restaurant. You just need to ask the restaurant to validate your parking slip. The validation, as I recall is good for three hours.

Description
Located on a working harbor with a great view of vessels going up and down the channel and dolphins frolicking in the bay. The best seafood and view of the sunset in Galveston. We offer private dining for between 10 and 300, and have accommodated many large functions such as the Commemoration of the USS Fort Worth, many weddings, bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. We are also within easy walking distance of the Strand on Pier 21.
