Sharky's Tavern

Sharky's Tavern

Sharky`s Tavern, located a few blocks from The Strand, features delectable Napoli-style pizzas, a sports bar, and live music on the weekends.

According to owners Holly & David Robertson, Napoli-style pizza is unlike anything you`ll find in a typical American pizza chain. Baked in their custom wood-fired oven at 900 degrees for about 90 seconds, the resulting pies are thin, and bursting with flavor with ingredients such as house-made doughs, sauces, and mozzarella; as well as imported Mozzarella de Bufala.

The Sharky`s menu also features local ingredients and products from local vendors, including beers from Galveston Island Brewery and Devil and the Deep Brewery.

Brews Brothers

Brews Brothers

During a promotional tasting in September of 2011, the first beer served at Brews Brothers was their original brew nicknamed the 1900 Great Stout. This high volume stout aged over 100-year-old Galveston Oak was a pitch black malt bomb with hints of chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla.

Today, the bar proudly serves the finest craft beers available from breweries both local and abroad, select wines, fine cigars & pub fare. Drop by and enjoy the exceptional service and quality beer that made Brews Brothers the newest island tradition.
