Sunday Brunch was perfect. Great service and staff was nice. We sat on the porch where it was sunny and bright. Crab Cakes and Burger was our choices. Nice place to get away from the normal beach food. We will be back

We ate on the porch--cool sea breeze, soft music, wonderful atmosphere. The food was fantastic; the service was excellent. My husband had blacken redfish; I had shrimp and grits. Both of our entrees were cooked to perfection. Our new favorite restaurant in Galveston.
