  • This is a fishing pier, and we weren't fishing, just sightseeing after lunch at Jimmy's, where we received a free wristband to go out on the rest of the pier. It was a nice walk, and fun watching peop...  more »

  • It was a good set up. We didn't really catch anything because the water was abnormally hot. But its got a good lay out and a cool shop.
  • Good place with clean bathrooms, lots of space for fishing and friendly staff. There are several tables with running water to clean your fish and several tables to cut your bait, etc. Benches, lights and it is a very stable and safe pier. Inside the store under the restaurant you can find everything you need in case you forgot something. Prices to enter are fair and the pier has an overall clean appearance. Trash cans everywhere. The restaurant can deliver your food to your fishing spot. As far as fishing... It's a matter of luck and good bait. We have seen all sizes of fish being caught here.
  • Amazing , romantic and affordable place to go fishing . They rent the whole fishing kit for 15 $ .
  • I've fish at GFP since the 70's till 1999 when I moved out of state. I got back to Texas 11 months ago (2014) and couldn't wait to fish again. Again, I'm a regular at fishing at this pier, love it as always. it's been said that statistics shows if a person goes fishing regularly, that it adds 8 years to a person's life, not bad! I'm extremely surprised at the renovating after the hurricane. It's much better than before, the only thing I miss the is the music that used to play throughout the pier. now I have to listen to county on one side and rap on the other side, at same time. Can't beat the entry price compare to other piers on my travels. Parking is managed by the city and not pier, price is acctually not bad, city needs to work on their "Pay By Phone" settings to let us know you can't pay till 10am instead of saying request has been invalidated, I was trying to pay by year at 7am. Love the restaurant on pier, great food, bar drinks are great, they even have smoothies and shakes. Restrooms are very clean, well stocked store, lighting is perfect at night. the staff both at restaurant and store are extremely friendly and answer all your questions. (except for an older guy that I have only seen once) This is probably were my friends can find me if I'm MIA. Great fishing my friends!
  • We ate here and the food was amazing AF!!! Get the fish tacos!! Friendly staff and amazing view.

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
