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.

Eric was an excellent server. Friendly and helpful with great recommendations. And he knows his history! We had the Greek nachos and Ceviche... both amazing. So much so we ordered seconds off the Happy Hour Special Sheet. Why has no one thought to make nachos with gyros before??? Plus, saw porpoises playing in the bay while we sipped our drinks. So cool.

It was nice to sit outside and watch the tugs and freighters move about on a nice evening but the food was not that good. I love calamari and chose that but it came out cold and not very tasty. The others had the small portion of fried shrimp and french fries and again just not that special as well as being on the high priced side for what you get. The servers were attentive but with so many other great seafood restaurants in the area, I probably won't go back here.

Watch the sun set on the harbor! Love their salmon on a bed of rice with broccoli. I believe it is topped with poppy seeds and drizzle of teriyaki. It is my favorite dish. This restaurant is excellent. Always accommodating. Special commendation for Jesse who works diligently to oversee that the easy flow and service makes dining here fun.

We enjoyed the daily special for lunch here - grilled fish, rice pilaf and greek salad. The fish was beautifully cooked and served in a tasty wine sauce. The portion sizes were generous and service was attentive.
