Houston Press' Description

Gaido's has been serving Galveston locals and tourists alike their seafood for over a century, making it one of the oldest continually operating restaurants on the island. Reservations are strongly encouraged at night, as the classic, carpeted dining rooms fill up quickly and will leave you waiting for at least an hour. Expect old-fashioned service to go with the elegant atmosphere, but – since it's the island – you won't be turned away for wearing shorts and flip-flops. Try the soft-shell crabs in season or the parmesan-crusted red snapper year-round, and don't forget a bowl of Watkins' Bisque: the creamy lobster soup with sherry is an essential part of the Gaido's experience.

    Seafood heaven. Snapper Michael, Brook’s gumbo and the fried shrimp can’t be beat. Right on the Seawall. Parking is tight in the front, parking lot in the back. Fun waiters who know lots of history.

    Gaido's has a reputation for consistently fresh and well-prepared food. There is something for everyone. If you've not dined at Gaido's, you haven't really explored Galveston.

    word on the street is that Gaido's Seafood Restaurant is the best place to eat in Galveston. Also, the pecan pie is famous and can be shipped anywhere in the US.
