This restaurant never disappoints. Delicious food and excellent service. You can't ask for anything more. JD our waiter was so attentive which is so refreshing these days. This is the number one restaurant in Galveston as far as we are concerned.

My husband and I have celebrated many anniversaries at this restaurant. The service is the best and the food exquisite. The soufflés are a "must." John Paul is a wonderful host and his staff are comparable to any other outstanding restaurant in Houston.

Great Steakhouse in The San Luis Resort. Service was terrific and the meal was outstanding. It does tend to be a little noisy though. Will go back on next trip to Galveston.

Most times it is more business casual/formal. But other times there is more island casual. A very difficult venue to second guess attire for any particular night.

Why can't I see a food menu? I want to go there for our first wedding anniversary? All I get is a SPA Menu.

I'm using a PC, and I go here: (Sorry, TA won't let me put the URL in here, bummer) Then I click on "View Menu" towards the bottom, and get "Page Cannot Be Found" - this has been going on for about month now, that I now of.
What are the prices like ?

I had two glasses of wine, an appetizer and dinner and my bill was around $130. Definitely worth it.
