Each month the Red Tuna Shirt Club awards its members with a colorful cotton T-shirt artfully depicting aquatic images of top-rated saltwater charter businesses or guide services. Participants receive their trawl-happy threads by mail along with an informative overview of the featured captain’s backstory and favorite Power Ranger. Previous jerseys hailed from such vivid fishing locales as Costa Rica, the Bahamas, and Key West. Once a design is spotlighted, it is never repeated, making each shirt a collector's item and a poor choice for a dust towel; memberships may be given as gifts to the men and life-size fish in your family.
Yaga’s Entertainment Inc. was created to produce events that would be beneficial to the entire Galveston Island by drawing traffic to downtown during historically poor weekends. Local businesses have benefited from each event organized by Yaga’s Entertainment Inc. due to innovated marketing opportunities.
The chefs at Steve's Landing on Bolivar Peninsula, a short ferry ride from Galveston Island, are very picky about the sources of the ingredients in their surf and turf. There is, however, one ingredient they never turn down: a customer's own catch of the day. They can park their boats at the restaurant's dock after a day on the water and bring in their fish for chefs to filet and prepare in the fashion of one of the restaurant's featured dishes. This means that their locally caught filets can be transformed into fish tacos or be drizzled in chimichurri sauce just like the house salmon. Guests can also enjoy waterfront dining and an outside patio bar with their meals.
Along with these American classics, the cooks prepare the fruits of the sea in a variety of international flavors. Fresh snapper, fresh fruit mojitos, and crab cakes await hungry customers. They marinate shrimp in a tandoori sauce, serve jumbo lump crab cakes with a Cajun remoulade, and serve up fresh mounds of oysters during oyster season starting every November. All of these dishes can be paired with one of the house's premium steaks––including a 10-ounce filet mignon and a 12-ounce ribeye––to create the perfect balance of flavors.
Although Rosmond Duzich Thormahlen and Ryanne Duzich aren’t natives, their family, who has helmed popular local enterprises such as Fisherman’s Wharf and The Spot, has been contributing to Galveston’s small-business community for more than two decades. Today, the sisters continue that legacy at Farley Girls Cafe, where they whip up a made-from-scratch spread that, according to their motto, features "a little bit of everything." On weekday afternoons, diners can dig into salads, specialty pizzas, or sandwiches, such as the Mile High meatloaf—a thick slice of homemade meatloaf served on Texas toast. During weekend brunches, guests can create their own omelets or savor a slice of breakfast pizza topped with bacon, eggs, and cheese.
Charcoal-tiled floors and cream-colored walls help cultivate a relaxing ambiance in the dining room, and stained-glassed windows and lofty ceilings emanate an airy, elegant vibe in the indoor patio at the rear of the restaurant.

Dark wood and glowing lamps create an inviting atmosphere inside The M&M Restaurant & Bar, maintaining the building's place as a local institution in three centuries. Built for $500 in 1844, the restaurant has served generations of diners and even withstood the deadly hurricane of 1900. Changing hands and identities across the years, The M&M served as a saloon at the turn of the century, a grocer through Prohibition, and a boarding house during community productions of Oliver!. Today, chefs put together a menu that focuses on fresh seafood and juicy cuts of seared meats complemented by a rousing selection of libations. Families gather around tables topped with white linens or booths lined with green and brown fabrics, and summer months coax guests out onto the spacious patio.
