Galveston Restaurant Group has brought the “art of great eating” to patrons since 1997. Created by Johnny Smecca, Joey Smecca, and Danny Hart, they opened their first restaurant, Saltwater Grill, in 1998, located in the heart of the Galveston Arts & Entertainment District. Since then, they have been creating, prospering and selling restaurant concepts that deliver the best dining experiences on the Texas Gulf Coast.
“This place is amazing! The food is delicious home cooking and staff is friendly and attentive… You can't go wrong here.”
We went there for dinner and had a wonderful experience. I had chicken n sausage gumbo. That was the most delicious bowl of gumbo that I have had in a very long time.
