The food was excellent, the service was a mixed bag. One of the servers was new and it was very difficult to communicate with her. The rest of the service was very good. Highlight for me was the food.

Have eaten here many times. Always excellent. Family owned. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Always start with calamari. It is the best I have ever had. Also have a nice wine list that is reasonably priced. If in Galveston, don't...More

I have seen the bar in the back room and I'm not sure how extensive their liquor selection is. But just place a call, they will be more than happy to help you!
