Food was so so. We got the fried pickles and they were actually the worst I've ever had. The location is great though - you cannot beat the atmosphere. We will probably be back but will stick to drinks only.

The service here is very good. We visited here for dinner late in the evening with small children. We were sitted upstairs because it opens up as a night club at 9. This was ok. Great music and fun environment

Had a sunset supper at the Village Door overlooking the marina. We were enthusiastically greeted at the door and seated in an area of our choosing outdoors with a view of the harbor and bay. The place was already crowded when we arrived about 6:00 PM and people continued to come into the restaurant as other people departed. We were... More

My wife and I were shopping at the Village at Baytown Wharf and decided to grab a bite to eat. The menu looked good so we decided to go in. We walked in the front door and the place was empty. A server came up to us and asked us what we wanted. When we said we wanted a table,... More

Will NOT be back. Music was great and menu looked delish. So we took our 6 kids in. Ran out of ranch dip (really???), waitress though they were out of the kids shrimp platter (what?????) but ended up not being the case..... Had to wait to sit, waited even longer before taking drink order and waited again for food order.... More

We came for dinner and loved the live music on the deck and the view. The BBQ was above average and the seafood was par for the course. We stayed for the free drinks after dinner in the nightclub and had planned on leaving when the promo ended... then the band came on and they were amazing! I've seen cover... More
