We were told this was a great place for local fresh fish. It didn't disappoint but the rating is affected by the slow service. We were there in the middle of the week and had reservations but the servers were understaffed and it took quite awhile for the food to arrive. We did enjoy the atmosphere and staff but can't...

We ordered the Seafood platter and the breading on the Flounder was soggy and falling off. We asked for extra Shrimp in place of Oysters. The platter had 1 piece of Flounder and 6 small shrimp (obviously frozen). 80% of the plate was Onion Strings and not much else. We expected fresh seafood not frozen. The waiter was very attentive...

Steaks, seafood, chicken, crisp salads and possibly the best Martini I have ever had, upstairs , worth a visit.

Galveston Island RV Resort recommend this place. Great causal place to wet your whistle and get a bite to eat. The oyster/flounder Poboy was excellent. Staff was friendly and provided great service.

My wife and I love this restaurant. It's very nice setting the service is really good and the food is awesome. Big portions and tasty. Pretty sunset views and on the marina. The manager Dana is a doll and the servers are great - Brandon, Jake, just to name a couple. Hidden gem

We were looking for a place to eat outside, casual, music, and bar. We found it at the West End Restaurant and Sandbar. The upper lever has a restaurant and the lower level is casual dining and a bar.

This is really two restaurants: the West End restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating and dishes such as Caesar salad, lobster bisque, pecan-crusted snapper, “drunken” chicken with a Jack Daniel’s sauce, and ribeyes; and the Sandbar, a more down-market, open-air, sports bar type place with dishes such as salad (+/- chicken, shrimp, crab), burgers, po boys, fried oysters, fried shrimp,...

Owners verbally abusive! Watched the owner chew out the DJ as he made pleas to the customers to express to the owner to bring Karaoke back on Saturday nights. Watched numerous customers leave, along with us after the incident. Very uncomfortable watching. As we where leaving, I told the owner we enjoyed the karaoke and he and his wife told... More

The Karaoke was wonderful, food average. Enjoyed dancing and singing the night away in the Sandbar. The karaoke DJ was great, smooth voice and ran the show effortlessly. The food in the bar was all fried after eating appetizers, we asked if we could order from the restaurant up stair. They reluctantly agreed, fish tacos were good, crab cakes not... More

Upstairs, white table cloth setting. Downstairs, very low key. We sat downstairs, waterside. Waitress recommended a hamburger, husband and Ii both ordered seafood. Located away from the pricey touristy places. Will definitely be back
