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.

Reasonably priced, good food and selection. Same building as Harbor House Hotel so a no brainer to try if staying there.

The Pier 21 Parking Lot is right in front of Pier and the Restaurant. You just need to ask the restaurant to validate your parking slip. The validation, as I recall is good for three hours.

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.
