We had a birthday lunch here and the waitstaff sang what was quite possibly the best birthday song known to a restaurant. Good food, excellent views of Elissa, really friendly staff, and they validate!

In typical Texas fashion, the staff at the Fisherman‘s Wharf provide hospitality in a big way! The people there seem to genuinely appreciate the fact that you chose their establishment. If you visit later in the afternoon, you can see the cruise ships coming in!...More

Four couples, all of us pretty picky about our food, totally enjoyed our evening at Fishermans Wharf. Excellent food and service! And a view of the Elyssa Sailing Ship!

Not to my knowledge and we have been there numerous times in all seasons and all kinds of weather. We have never seen even a "purse" sized dog.
