Date: early 1930s-1954
Notes: Owned and operated by brothers Salvatore (Sam) and Rosario (Papa Rose) Maceo of the Maceo Syndicate, the Turf Grill restaurant was located on the ground floor of the Turf Athletic Club building at 2214 Market St., Galveston Island, Texas.

Above the restaurant, patrons enjoyed entertainment, drinking and illegal gambling in the Studio Lounge and the Western Room, while paid-off law officers looked the other way.

The building has since been razed.
