Waterfront watch: A very prime island restaurant spot on the waterfront that recently became available continues to generate much buzz and conjecture. When Ignite Restaurant Group last month closed its Joe’s Crab Shack at Pier 19 on the waterfront, it raised several questions about just who would fill the space and whether the Port of Galveston, which is the landlord, would have much say about it. Lease terms allow Ignite to sublease the port property to a reasonable tenant. It’s possible a restaurant operator could forge a sublease agreement with Ignite.

Meanwhile, Floyd’s Cajun Seafood Co. is rumored to be considering the site. Officials with Floyd’s, which has three locations in Southeast Texas, including a popular eatery at 20760 Interstate 45 in Webster, could not immediately be reached for comment. Bret Floyd, Floyd Landry and Gary Pearce are the owners and operators of Floyd’s Cajun Seafood Co.
