One of the best seafood restaurants in Galveston, Fisherman's Wharf is renowned for the freshest fish and seafood specialties. A Texas-sized establishment, it is the perfect spot to unwind, ideally situated next to the Historic Strand District, the Tall Ship Elissa and Galveston Cruise Terminal. The menu features the famous Shrimp Kisses (bacon-wrapped and stuffed with jalapeño Jack cheese) as well as an extensive selection of fresh fish daily, signature seafood combination platters, savory chicken dishes, pastas and perfectly prepared steaks. Enjoy a leisurely meal in one of the many dining areas — all of which boast splendid views of the bay.

A legacy of great seafood since the 1940s, the site originally housed a shrimp and fish “factory” — an old tin building where mountains of Gulf shrimp were readied for shipment across the country.

Shrimp from this very place was served to President John F. Kennedy at the White House. In 1966, the current building was constructed to meet the growing demand for Galveston shrimp, which many have acclaimed as the “best shrimp on Earth.” The proprietor's wife started serving Shrimp Po-boys to the workers in 1970, and the rest is history!
