A tradition of excellence for over 100 years. Back in 1911 when S.J. Gaido first opened his restaurant, visitors often arrived by boat or on the old interurban line. The Gaido family's commitment was to make the trip worthwhile with the best in service and the finest in seafood.

Today, the trip to Galveston is much easier, but the service and cuisine of Gaido's restaurant remains the same. All of their seafood is meticulously inspected and prepared by hand.

They still peel shrimp, shuck oysters, and filet fish the old fashioned way as they have for the last ninety-plus years, and they're not about to change. All of their sauces, salad dressings, and desserts are homemade from Gaido's family recipes, using only the finest of fresh ingredients.

Four generations of Gaido's have committed themselves to excellence. Visit today and sample the famous oyster platter or have their snapper prepared any way you'd like. It's all waiting for you on Seawall Boulevard at 39th Street.

Seating is done on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations highly recommended.
