As island residents ourselves, we love exploring all of our local options. From Gulf seafood to hand-crafted ice cream to Italian or Japanese cuisine, our island has the perfect variety of cuisine to tantalize your taste buds. There’s no reason to cross the causeway! Read on for our recommendations for delicious Island dining.


What Food is Galveston Known For?

Galveston is best known for its fresh seafood and steak, as well as the wide variety of Mexican and Italian restaurants. Island institutions like Gaido’s Seafood, The Original Mexican Cafe, La Kings Confectionery and The Star Drug Store have been around for decades. New Galveston restaurants like Vargas Cut & Catch, Fish Company Taco, and Suki Poke by the Sea keep the local food scene fresh and exciting. No matter what type of food you’re craving, you can find it here on the Island!

Where to Find the Best Seafood in Galveston?

Looking for casual dining after a day on the beach? Planning a special night out? There are plenty of seafood restaurants in Galveston to choose from. Dishes include crawfish, shrimp, snapper, grouper and other Gulf fishes. Popular local choices include:

Where is the Galveston Seafood Market?

If you aren’t interested in fishing, but still want to enjoy local Gulf seafood, then head to the markets on Pier 20 & 21. Katie’s Seafood Market and Sampson & Son’s Seafood are both longtime suppliers of fresh, locally-caught fish and shellfish. Stop by either downtown favorite and pick the perfect catch!

Katie’s Seafood Market is located at 1902 Wharf Road, near Pier 20. They specialize in Gulf Wild tagged red snapper, shrimp, yellowfin tuna, crawfish & more. Supplies and market price vary, depending on the season. Check their social media accounts for pics of what’s currently coming in on their boats. You can also order online or subscribe to their “Seafood of the Month” club if your craving can’t wait until your next visit to Galveston Island!

Sampson & Son’s Seafood offers locally-caught fish and shellfish including oysters and crabs, depending on the season. You’ll find them at 20 Pier 21, just down the road from Katie’s Seafood House, near the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum.



 

Where to Eat in Galveston?

Galveston is commonly broken up into four areas when talked about by locals. Most restaurants and shops are located along Seawall Boulevard or in The Strand Historic District. East End residents are only a short distance from both of those districts. While the West End is mostly residential, there are some great options for vacation rental guests who don’t want to waste valuable beach time by driving into town. 

Galveston Seawall Restaurants

An abundance of local and chain restaurants can be found along Galveston’s seawall. The ones that our staff and longtime vacation guests keep going back to are:

  • The Spot
  • BLVD Seafood
  • Nick’s Kitchen & Beach Bar
  • Gaido’s Seafood
  • Salsa’s Mexican Restaurant
  • The Gumbo Diner

The Spot is a beachfront dining establishment that’s part of a 5-venue complex including the restaurant and four specialty bars: The Tiki Bar, Rum Shack, Sideyard and Squeeze. Choose from a selection of unique burgers or fresh seafood, grab a cool drink and enjoy the Gulf view from the deck. Kids will love the huge dessert case and large milkshakes. This popular spot gets very busy during the summer months, but is worth the wait!

Gaido’s Seafood and neighboring Nick’s Kitchen & Beach Bar both specialize in seafood. Gaidos’ first opened its doors in 1911, and it has been an island institution ever since. Nick’s is owned by a member of the same family, and has found its niche as a laid back beach bar with great views of the water.

Salsa’s Mexican Restaurant has been serving up delicious food since 1998. It’s received 5-star ratings from Texas Monthly for “Best Margarita” as well as being named one of the Best Mexican Restaurants in Texas. 

The Gumbo Diner is a relative newcomer by comparison (2013). Don’t let the name fool you! In addition to gumbo & etouffee, this cozy diner serves up sandwiches, all-day breakfast favorites and New Orleans-style beignets.

Galveston Restaurants on The Strand

  • Riondo’s Italian
  • Vargas Cut & Catch
  • Yaga’s Cafe
  • EATcetera
  • Lolo Kai Smoothies & Wraps

West End Restaurants

One of the best parts about staying in a West End Galveston vacation rental (other than the quick beach access!) is having a fully equipped kitchen. But, it’s vacation! When it’s time to really relax there are plenty of local options that make feeding your group easy:

  • Mario’s Pizza West End - pizza & pasta, eat-in or carry out
  • Nate’s West End Steak & Seafood - casual burgers & seafood

  • The West End Restaurant & Sandbar Grille - overlooks Galveston Bay
