The eighth annual Galveston Restaurant Week - Saturday, January 26th to Sunday, February 10, 2019 - brings Galveston Island's vibrant food scene to life for two full weeks of delicious dining. The event will showcase the freshest ingredients, most flavorful dishes and tastiest culinary gems that Galveston has to offer, as well as benefit Access Care of Coastal Texas.
This year’s event is presented by WAITR, and sponsored by Texas Monthly, OpenTable, The Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau, Houstonia Magazine, and OutSmart Magazine.
Home of the finest Gulf Coast seafood and some of Texas's most delectable restaurants, Galveston Island proudly welcomes visitors to Galveston Restaurant Week, where patrons can choose from Galveston's most delightful and delicious eateries for prix-fixe lunch and/or dinner menus. Two and/or 3-course dinners are priced between $20-$35; and 2-course lunches, breakfasts, & brunches cost between $10 and $20.
Last year's event featured a vast array of Galveston Island eateries, and resulted in a very welcome boost during the Island's slower season of winter.
