Tempting Choices for Every Palate
Despite the abundance of caution everyone is taking right now, we think the abundance of fabulous Galveston cuisine shouldn’t be overlooked. So, even though restaurants are currently limited to take-out, delivery, and drive-thru (hotel restaurants are still allowed to serve their guests), you don’t have to miss out on all your favorites. And don’t forget – restaurant gift cards make perfect gifts!
Dine by Location
Warm breezes and year-round temperate seas complement the city’s rich downtown Historic District. It’s here you’ll find a host of award-winning restaurants ranging from the hip to the fanciful, from the finest Gulf seafood to Old-World Italian.
Galveston’s famed Seawall Boulevard features an array of tantalizing eateries, ranging from the legendary Gaido’s to the south-of-the-border-style fiesta of Salsas. Best advice? Start east and eat your way west!
Is there any finer way to savor delectable cuisine than outdoors? We don’t think so! From watching the cruise ships depart the harbor, to taking in the dazzling Gulf, to enjoying a sunset over Galveston Bay, views are yours for the taking!
Dine by Dietary Preference
From fresh Gulf Wild Red Snapper to a Crab, Avacodo & Mango Tower, this is your guide to some of the best seafood dishes on the island.
It wasn’t too very long ago that asking to see the gluten free menu in a restaurant would have elicited a response along the lines of “What’s a gluten?” from your baffled server. But in this era of expanding culinary enlightenment, most restaurants now take pride in catering to their gluten free customers with the same delicious, flavorful options that non-gluten threatened diners enjoy.
Islanders love a lot of things – but they especially love starting a weekend morning with a memorable brunch. The good news? You’ve got a lot of really wonderful choices. The bad news? You’ve got a lot of really wonderful choices. Better dig in!
Heavens to Betsy! Sometimes you just need some red meat in the fashion of a good ol’ burger. When you get that hankering, and your tummy rumbles you won’t be disappointed by the selections and tastes at Hubcap Grill. Extra bonus: it’s located on the historic Strand across the street from the oldest commercial building in Galveston. Handcrafted hamburgers, dining inside equally delicious architecture, and topped with the Strand’s ambiance steeped in history? Yes, please!
The two of us ventured over to Number 13 for our maiden meal after hearing great reviews through the Galveston grapevine. Saving our calories in preparation, we arrived almost famished and nearly hangry. We prepared well.
For one of us in this dining duo, breakfast is the meal to end all meals. It is the epic start to every day. It is The Show. There is no better plate of food than a properly prepared tangle of breakfast fare.
