Known for their incredible views almost as much as their fabulous food, Stingaree Restaurant & Marina is not just a unique place to eat, it's a travel destination.

Located on the Intercoastal Waterway at 1295 N. Stingaree Road in Crystal Beach, Stingaree features an array of delicious sections from an extensive menu.

Opened in 1986 by Jim Vratis, he and son Brad are still at the helm greeting customers, bussing tables, and making all their guests feel right at home.

You won't taste fresher seafood unless you catch it yourself (by the way, they'll cook your catch for you!)- including a variety of seafood platters, shrimp, snapper, seafood gumbo, fresh oysters cooked five ways, their famous Boscos barbequed crabs and much more.

Of course, Stingaree also features classic American favorites like chicken fried steak, ribeye steaks and grilled chicken, as well as desserts a full-service bar.

Visit the main dining room upstairs for a birds-eye view of the bay, or grab a beer and a platter of crawfish and catch a live band in the cafe/cantina downstairs in DownUnder.

Watch a spectacular sunset over Galveston Bay while you sip an ice-cold Stingarita. Promise, you'll be hooked on the Stingaree experience!
