Number 13 Ratings and Reviews

Made reservations for my girlfriends birthday. Ordered the Filet and the Ribeye, took 20 minutes just to get our appetizers even though the place was pretty empty. The Filet was OK , not great but just average. The Ribeye was no better than a throw down steak at any chain steakhouse. Actually I have had way better Ribeyes at chain steakhouse. For a $200 dinner it was very disappointing. I have eaten at dang near every top shelf steakhouse in Houston and they were ALL better than 13. I do realize that every restaurant can have an off night, so I may give them a second chance in the future but not anytime soon.

We are visiting Galveston for Thanksgiving holiday. After reading reviews, I have selected 7 restaurants for the seven nights we'd be spending in Galveston. I have made reservations for all. We ate at Number 13 at the first evening.
We enjoyed the ambience (except for a loud and obnoxious woman at the table next to us, totally out of restaurant's control, she increased the acidity of our stomachs for a good while before we could take a deep breath when she left. Peace took over the restaurant, literally).
The servers were on time, attentive (but not pushy and not trying to rush us out of the restaurant), polite, and knowledgeable. We ordered a variety of fish and all of them were made to perfection. We ordered two side dishes and both tasted out of this world.
The wine list was extensive and our glases of red and white wines were lovely. They had a full bar too.
I could see the owner or manager (someone in charger) constantly keeping an eye on the floor to oversee things making sure everyone was taken care of.
It was Sunday evening and more than half of the tables were empty. Our server asked us whether we liked bread before dinner or not (suggested to me this did not come automatically). I did say yes, but we were never served bread. Also before the desserts were served, my father accidentally poured a glass of water on the table. We used all of our napkins to dry the table. When serving the dessert, the server could not have possibly missed a pile of wet napkins at one corner of the table. Yet she did not offer us fresh napkins. These were the two reasons I took a star away.
Overall the food is pricey especially because it does not come with any sides and you do need to order the sides separately. But the sides are large and family style and the table can share.
I do recommend this restaurant and next time I come to Galveston, will go back again. I'd be just more outspoken about my bread and fresh napkins or would not pay 20% tip like I did this time!!

This is our favorite go to place, we love the people, the food and the service.
The food is fabulous, from the Wonderful Steaks and Seafood, to the great
sides, like Jalapeño Mac & Cheese, and the Fish Taco's & Oysters, you just
can't go wrong here. This is a Fabulous Restaurant to Celebrate Special
Occasions, for a lasting memory too. We love the bartenders and the entire
staff, they make Fabulous Mixology level drinks!!
Thanks Number 13 for a Great Experience, every time!!

The menu on the website is not up-to-date. We went expecting a brunch with lobster eggs Benedict and they were not one of the three menu choices. That said, we each selected a different option and both were excellent. Fun drink menu! It was a lovely brunch and we will return for the service, food and calming views. Beautiful restaurant in Galveston.

In Galveston for an event and wanted to go somewhere nice and unique for our 8 yr anniversary. Steak was dynamite! They even wrote 'Happy Anniversary' on the desert plate. The s'more desert is a must! Thank you for such a great experience.

Lovely ambiance and delicious food. We enjoyed everything we had including the Texas Onion soup, Brussels sprouts, tuna, and the molten chocolate dessert. Our glasses were never empty. The wait staff was excellent!

Our waiter was great but the bone in ribeye was uneventful. Not sure how you can present a medium temperature steak that is cooked correctly yet not juicy at all. The Yukon mashed potatoes were the best thing on the table. My wife fillet was better than mine, yet still nothing worth writing home about.

It was my first time here to this hidden gem on Galveston island. Beautiful decor with a spectacular view of the marina out back made for an incredible sunset. My steak was cooked to perfection, moist and delicious. Great wait staff as well.

No 13 is one of the best steakhouses we've ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Superb service, excellent decor, spectacular view, and of course mouthwatering steaks. This restaurant came highly recommended and then not only delivered but actually exceeded our typically finicky expectations. Take the time to go to No. 13 and you, too, will be glad you did. Bon apetit!

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary. We made reservations requesting a seat by the window. The staff had a beautiful table with a great view of the water ready when we arrived. The dry aged steak was the best steak that I have ever had it melted in my mouth and it is definitely worth every penny. This is not the normal steak you get from a franchise steak house. Order the carrots! I had no idea carrots could taste that amazing! They decorated our dessert plate beautifully for our anniversary. Then the chef came out and shook our hands and thanked us for dining with them. The attention to detail made for an expierence, instead of just another night out grabbing dinner.

The dry-aged steak was not cooked to true medium-rare. It was a little undercooked, but we were very happy with it. The special of the day appetizer (shrimp with cilantro and fennel were underwhelming). The side of mushrooms were outstanding, and the desert (a tort filled with peaches, and dulce de leche with homeade vanilla icecream) was fabulous. The service (Misty) was top notch, and the wet, dirty martini's perfect. I would expand the wine list.

The host staff was excellent but the wait staff fell short of good. My fiancé and I ordered a bottle of wine and 45 minutes later we finally received or bottle after asking about it twice. Food was good but not worth the price. Overall will not make a trip to go again could go to salt grass and have a steak of the same quality

This place over looks the bay and Moody gardens on the other side. Its actually part of a yacht club so night time is great but weekend days trips are great also. Steaks are fantastic. Service is top notch. I would highly recommend.

This is our go-to place, they really go all out for the customer.
There food is out of this world, from the stakes to the seafood
and the sides are fabulous too. My favorite side is Lobster and
the jalapeño mac and cheese and steak fries to die for. My hubby's
is the Bone in Ribeye of course, the fabulous Wagyu beef.
We love the bar scene also, the drinks are of the mixology
level. There wine selection if phenomenal, as well as
there whiskey's and any other liquor that you might like.
Kudos to the owners and staff for always creating such an
elegant and warm feel for us to meet with family and friends.

This is a very unique restaurant in Galveston in that it has a great view but it's not on the beach. Instead you overlook Pelican Nest Marina and all it's yachts and sailboats! Food quality is comparable to Shearns or the Steakhouse and the prices are about the same. They do tend to
use some interesting flavorings though, which sets them apart from the more typical upscale steak/seafood places mentioned above. We've been there twice now and service is a little slow, but I think that is intentional so that you have a "longer dining experience". The homemade bread is to die for, and steaks and seafood is excellent. The inside bar is huge and appears to be a hot spot for locals, as is the outside bar.

WE had a lovely dining experience with a knowledgeable waiter and wine suggestions. Enjoyed the entire meal immensely. May need to update the online dessert menu though - was hoping for the Monkey Dessert!
This is not the steakhouse of your dream ...
This is not the steakhouse of your dreams. It just missed on almost everything. Salad was not chilled, popovers were not hot and not seasoned, wine was off and had to be returned, steaks were 'charred' to the point of blackness all over and we were told that is how they do it there. We scraped off the charcoal and ate the steak, which was tasty. Even the creme brûlée was over torched. The worst meal for the most money we have probably ever spent. They need a great deal of improvement. We recommend you eat steak in Houston before you cross the causeway.

One of the very best steaks I have ever had! Food was amazing. Wine selection/pairing was perfect. Service fantastic, and we were a large party. If you don't go here while in Galveston- you are missing out. Our only regret was that we found it on the last night of our conference and not sooner.

This was our first time dining at Number 13 and everything was great. The service was fantastic and very helpful. And the food, which we both had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. The whole total experience was very satisfying. We will return....

This was our second visit to Number 13. This was to celebrate our anniversary, the first was Valentines Day (the service was much better this visit) but also much less busy! The food is sensational. We also got to enjoy the fireworks from Moody Gardens (across the bay.)
