  • This is a cash only establishment that will get you fishing over the gulf in minutes. There is even shaded spots, running water, and special area for surf rods. We had a great time and will come back.  more »
  • Pretty pier that look promising until you get there and to walk out a short distance it costs $10. Fine if you are going to fish but you can't just walk out there for the view.  more »

  • I love this place. Cheap beer. Gorgeous place to hang out. Great fishing, souvenirs, and, you can buy a yearly parking pass for only $20. That lets you park on Seawall, Strand, or anywhere else in Galveston that has a parking sign. If you're here for the week, it makes so much sense!
  • My wife & I were there on Sunday May 7, 2017. The tall lady working the counter was not friendly at all with us. Wanted to get my senior discount since I am the age to get the discount & tried to show my ID & she asked what was that for & told her for the discount. She was not nice how she explained that the discount is only god on Monday - Thursday, on Friday - Sunday was full price & she needed $20 for the both of us. I have no problem with that but if the discount is only good for certain days it should be posted on their facebook page so people will know when wanting to get the discount for the first time so people will know. We like the pier, good place to fish but not sure if we will be back. Also, there are sometimes a rude person there getting in my face because he messed up.
  • The absolute best pier I've ever been too! Every single staff member is respectful and helpful. I've caught drums, reds, stingrays over a foot big, sharks of different species no smaller than 3 foot, speckled and sand trout, flounder, and of course bait fish!! Oh one thing I do recommend changing! Season bands or tickets! Its a great price for tourist but I come so often it gets out of my price range sometimes.
  • We drive down from Houston to fish at the 61st Street Pier. We prefer weekday fishing when it is a little less crowded. The employees are fun and have been helpful. The whole place is cash only so remember that if you go.
  • Love this place one of my favorite spots to go. The staff is nice and helpful and the even the people on the pier is great . Will be back again real soon.
