“Great Atmosphere and Service”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

There was six of us, on entering we were immediately greeted and they got us a table on the lower deck by the water. There was service personnel everywhere and we had our ordered refreshments in no time. Most of us had fish of some kind ranging from gumbo to blackened Mahi Mahi. The food was great (maybe portions could have been a little larger), the service can not be faulted in any way and the ambiance with view of harbor is enjoyable and soothing. It's also nice to stop in just for a drink in the afternoon (lot of exotic varieties) and watch one of the large cruise ships perform a K-Turn in a narrow space right in front of your eyes. Definitely recommended.

We visited while on vacation in Galveston. There were five of us and every entree ordered was great. The service was the best I have experienced in a long time. We will definitely return.

“Service Great - Food Passable”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Crab cakes are great - all else on par with others but pricey. Service and atmosphere were great! View of the harbor and Elissa were worth the visit.
