We absolutely love this place. Especially during happy hour. Their Mojitos are excellent I don't do the frozen ones but the really good on the Rocks mojitos. We always get the shrimp cocktail it's hug...e and so tasty. Can't leave without the chicken wings a lot of food for little money. We have never had a problem with service. We visit every time we go to Galveston and we will surely be back! See More

Mojito here are the Bomb ! Management might need to get some more help upstairs but the girls did the best they could for the amount of people.

Service is slow at upstairs bars. We have been here for 20min and nobody has acknowledged us. None of the bartenders are smiling. It’s a beautiful day not sure what is going on with this place today.

Not sure how or why the negative reviews. These folks have always provided me 1st class service. Very accomodating on a drizzling cool day for the Mardi Grad parade

Love the Rum Shack! Why? The shrimp kisses, frozen mojitos, & Caribbean atmosphere! Plus the great view of the Gulf and the HH menu. I went twice while I was in Galveston this week vacationing.

The only place I spend my birthday during the Lone Star Rally. Love seeing the great staff work hard and every one having a blast.

Should have been a 5 Star. Band has themselves confused with someone who has won the voice.
New Years and everyone paid $$$ to hear the band. WTF where is the band??!

Mojito's excellent, Calimari was nasty. Hot wings and bacon wrapped shrimp excellent. Happy hour $4 mojito's can't go wrong.

Rum Shack had a great solar eclipse party! They provided the proper glasses to watch the eclipse, had great drink specials ($2 coronas and low priced margaritas) and plenty of servers to take care of ...everyone! Kudos to Allie Murphy for keeping everything running smoothly!! See More

Fabulous snapper fish tacos. This place was packed but we were still able to find a seat and listen to some fun live music. Definitely a young hip beach bar, don't take the kids on a Sat night after d...ark, for sure! See More

I arrived apx. 5;30 in afternoon with 3 others . At the bar the service was ok. We moved to a table and went back to order food at the bar. Only appetizers , no real food on Rum shack menu. So 1 orde...r came and nothing on the other 2 . Finally went to bar, they weren't turned in. It was overall not a good experience and the hard wooden chairs will kill you. We spent a lot of money drinks were good, food was not. See More

We had a horrible experience. Met a friend I haven't seen in over a year, took my husband for the first time. Our waitress was the worst and ruined the nite. She couldn't get our drink order correct ...(how hard is it to order a plain coke, which my friend's date never received). My husband ordered a rum & coke, hence we were at the Rum Shack, he got a whiskey & coke. We went out on a limb and orderd food from their menu, and after an hour of no food we left and went to the Float. Please hire staff that can work in a restaurant/ bar. There was a couple sitting next to us and the gentleman asked if we had bad service, since they were sitting for 15 minutes with none. I saw them walk out. This was a Monday evening around 5 pm. I would hate to see her work on a busy night! We live in Galveston and like to support local businesses, but when you get bad service, it's disappointing! See More

Was there with my girlfriend during the summer when we went on an overnight trip to Galveston while on holiday visiting her folks in Tx. Amazing place, the drinks are excellent, the service was great,... great view of the Gulf. The clientele were also really friendly. If you like a good rum drink this is a top drawer establishment (y) See More

Great location and environment but service was slow and they only deliver your appetizers to the table you have to go get your food that really needs to be changed.

Drinks are great. Service was very slow. Had to had multiple times for different things from the waitress to bring them to the table. If I walked to the bar myself I would get what I needed promptly.
