From Waterman’s Restaurant reviews online:
Ordered takeout here and it was delicious. The shrimp kisses and the seafood treasure chest were great. We were sad not to get the in person experience but hey, it’s a pandemic. We’ll definitely come back!
I had the broiled shrimp stuffed with crab, with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. Delicious. My hubs ordered the redfish which he said was fantastic. We were tempted by dessert but had no room left. Next time! Beautiful venue on the water at sunset also.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal there this week. The appetizers were delicious, as were the meals and deserts. The bacon-wrapped shrimp are some of the best I’ve ever had!
Our meals were excellent! Loved the Bloody Mary; great rolls! The fried seafood was really good. Surprisingly, the French fries were THE best!! We usually just leave the fries if we cannot substitute but these were some of the best we’ve ever had!
No matter what you are in the mood for, there are dozens of seafood restaurants in Galveston
to choose from!
Another great place for seafood on the west end of the island is Nate’s Westend Seafood & Steaks
