We stopped in here for a late lunch. The service was probably the best we had on our stay. Our waitress went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed, and anything that our small child could possible need. food was amazing!...More

Measuring a meal by the service isn't a guarantee of a good meal, but it really helps one enjoy the time and money spent.

The staff was friendly and served us quickly. The food was delicious. We enjoyed a walk around the pier after lunch, couldn't ask for more.

Ate here for lunch and enjoyed it. My wife had the crab cake hollandaise, probably the best dish on the menu. Excellent service and great food.

Excellent dining choice. Great service, atmosphere and food! Ont be scared off by the Greek Cruisine, selections are wide enough to satisfy every taste. Try the "fire melted cheese" appetizer... simply delicious!

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.
