Restaurant to watch ships leave out of Galveston?

Recommended Posts

Is there a bar or restaurant near the port area where we can watch the ships leave?  I have never sailed out of Galveston.  We leave Sunday and would love to watch the two ships leave Saturday afternoon.  (We have done this in Port Canaveral) 

 

Thanks in advance.

on map you can drive all way to east on to the map and watch ships come in and leave Gulf of Mexico thru the the main channel . Then drive to To restaurants and watch in Galveston channel to terminal. 

 

Also so stay in Harbor Hotel Hotel and watch from your room windows . 

 

You up can also watch various cams on galveston.com/webcams . Emerald you can watch any ship from terminal all the way into Gulf  or versa Gulf to terminal .

On our last Liberty cruise, we had a very nice dinner at Willie G's, so good location, service, and food IMHO.

Thank you for the map!  That is awesome!  We won't have a car.  I will look for the webcam in the meantime.  🙂

Sorry no. Would be nice if they had a roof top bar or something, but your only a few blocks away from the pier.

Yep your right there it is. I didn't zoom in far enough on the first one to see it. Shame about the view though, that would be awesome.

Fisherman's Wharf has a great view and an excellent all day happy hour, though it is Sunday thru Friday.  No Saturdays, though they still open at like 11AM on Saturdays.  I think we were there around noon on Thursday.  great appetizers, too.
