Gulf Coast Seafood Restaurant | Topwater Grill

Topwater Grill opened on May 27, 1999.

Peacefully tucked away on a peninsula and off the beaten path, situated only miles away from the sterile franchises of Kemah, sits one of San Leon's favorite local gems overlooking Galveston Bay.  An iconic Gulf Coast waterfront dining hideaway enjoyed by locals, fishermen and families alike for over twenty years.

Topwater Grill embodies the coastal causal seafood dining experience while exuding the relaxing vibes that often accompanies a lighthearted saltwater lifestyle from Texas Gulf Coast establishments of years gone by.

Priority number one at Topwater Grill is harvesting, serving and preparing fresh Gulf Coast seafood for our guests. We are proud to own and operate our own fleet of shrimp and oyster boats.  We proudly serve fresh Gulf Coast seafood that is perfectly prepared and enjoyed by our guests overlooking gorgeous Galveston Bay at April Fool Point Marina.
