We are visiting from Michigan and all my boys want to do is fish. Everyone here has been being amazing and incredibly friendly! If you’re into fishing at all you must come here while you’re in...

My family of 5 had a great experience here. We purchased our entrance tickets off of Groupon. You park on the side of the road and walk to the pier !! They have rental fishing poles and plenty of bait. The lady at the register was very helpful !! We saw a few dolphins really close to shore. We caught a few fish… we released them back into the water though.
First off this is not “just” a fishing pier. Theirs is the single best place in Galveston to play hooky on a Friday. The proprietors are awesome. Friendly people with an obvious love for the sea. Yeah, it’s a fishing pier and a bait shop but buy a couple local beers and some koozies and gain access to the upstairs level. They have a full bar with great service. The best selection of music for us over-40 folks. The cleanest bathrooms on the entire island. This is all on a large crows nest style balcony that overlooks the pier and the beach. Grab some cold adult beverages and sit next to the outer wrap-Around bar and watch the fisherman pull up their catches while seagulls and pelicans fly around and dive for their meals. You can even sea all the fishing boats, ships, and sailboats right off the coast. I’m told they have some great live music on the weekends but for us, this is our little hidden away hooky day location.
