Number 13 is a quaint spot with nice views of the harbor / intercoastal side. The service is friendly and helpful. The seafood was tasty, and the wine flavorful (a good selection).

Three couples went for dinner during Galveston Restaurant Week. Several had the grouper which was tender - not dried out. The beef Wellington was also very good - but not as good as the grouper. The King Crab first course was great! For dessert the bread pudding was outstanding. Our server was the only reason I did not rate this a five. She was average and not very attentive. Maybe she was new. Overall, it was a really good experience and our first time at 13. We live on the Island and I recommend 13 during restaurant week and for a special dinner out.

The top two upscale Galveston restaurants: Rudy&Paco's and 13.
Why the name - 13? 13 is named for the pirate Jean Lafitte and his brother. 13 was a nom de gare for the pirate brothers.
How was dinner? Just great. Highlights: whole lump crab dip, beef Wellington, grilled grouper and bread pudding. Superb and perfectly prepared beef and fish. It is a beef place with fish and crab.
The building? The interior of the restaurant is lovely and the exterior setting is along the bay - across from Moody Gardens. The restaurant's large marina is behind the main building.
Is 13 a chain restaurant? No. It is family owned - not a chain.
Upscale? Yes. Expensive.
Who will love this place? All who want truly fine dining and are willing to pay for it.

Must compliment the staff members from Number 13 for the exemplary service tonight. From Ashley who took our reservation, the bartender whose name we did not get (from Ukraine) and specifically Violet who served our table, the attitude and friendly service was appreciated. Loved the beef Wellington and the chocolate dessert was incredible. Thank you to all who made this night memorable.
