Who could ask for more?5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family went to Gaido'sOur family went to Gaido's for lunch after my daughter's college graduation. We had a group of 14 and they were able to accomodate us just fine. The restaurant is lovely and I was pleased to find that is was quiet enough for us to converse without shouting at each other. The service was a little slow, but that was probably due to the large number of people in our party, which included 2 small children. I had to ask for bread and water refills, but otherwise the service was good. The entire staff was gracious and everything was delicious! We ordered a wide varety of food, from salads to seafoof platters. I think everyone was satisfied. I would definitely recommend Gaido's for a special occasion!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest all aroundThe service, food and martini's were all excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGaido's is great!Great food and great service every time!

This iconic Galveston restaurant continues to impress with the freshest in season seafood available. Their menu has been updated to reflect what is in season so it changes throughout the year. This visit was oyster season and the oyster specials were fantastic. Fried oysters, baked oysters, oysters on the half shell, and specialty oysters, they were all delicious. The servers were enthusiastic about the food and the restaurant and it showed. It is time to go to Gaido's again.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat afternoon lunch forGreat afternoon lunch for my wife's 60th birthday celebration with our children and grandchildren.

Awesome experience for special occasions.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place has been aroundThis place has been around for a long time and is very busy on the weekend. I would recommend making a reservation in advance. We noticed a couple just getting seated that were waiting before we got there. They were just getting seated as we finished our meal. The wait is probably worth it, the service was great and the food was pretty good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seafood was deliciousThe seafood was delicious as always!

Love the fresh seafood and the hospitality.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric GemStill an institution in Galveston. Worth sampling. Many restaurants now duplicate the seafood menu but they have a special method of combining various seasonings, skillet preparations and side dishes to match up with any diner's preferences. Wait service is attentive and still has feel of the 50's.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFor the last 7 years GaidosFor the last 7 years Gaidos has been our families favorite restaurant when visiting Galveston. We have celebrated many special occasions with extended family. Great for families with kids.
Highly recommend to all those travelling thru Galveston and want a good Sea Food Restaurant, a bit pricey but excellent and fresh food.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with group of six. ServiceWent with group of six. Service was very good, though waiters were quite busy that evening with spring break ending that weekend. Wedge salad was excellent, and so was flounder. Chowders were excellent. Grilled seafood platter was mediocre--bed of rice was cold and seafood all tasted the same--blackened and nothing spectacular. Desserts, pecan pie and chocolate cake, outstanding and waiter divided the portions to share with equal amounts of ice cream--nice touch. I would return again but order something different. Overall, a very good dining experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were thrilled with theWe were thrilled with the developments...the menu, recipes, and very smart, precise,
elegant Vietnamese server.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA "Must Dine" Location in GalvestonWhat a great meal! We really enjoyed ourselves. Gaido's is a "must dine" while in Galveston. The restaurant had a long wait from walk in business, but beacuse of our OpentTable reservation, we were seated rigth away. Our waiter, Richard, was top notch!
We'll see you next time!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery fresh seafood, consistentlyVery fresh seafood, consistently good. Adults and children in our party liked their food.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWE used to come to Gaido'sWE used to come to Gaido's all the time when we lived in Galveston because the food was always good and the service was great. Now we live in Austin and every time we come back to the area, it's the first place we go. The restaurant is still owned by the Gaido family and they still only serve fresh fish. If I get nothing else. I always get their gumbo. My favorite is the snapper, grilled and I get the parmesan tomatoes as my side. Their servers are always very attentive. If you can only go to one restaurant when you visit Galveston, this is it.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGaido's is GreatMy husband and I met my brother in Galveston for a long, leisurely lunch at Gaido's. We enjoyed our appetizers consisting of one salad, chilled shrimp cocktail and oysters baked with a crumb topping. All were delicious. Our main entrees were the grilled seafood platter for my husband and brother and the Shrimp Peques for me. The food was excellent and served piping hot. Our server was attentive but did not hover.we never felt rushed. I would recommend this Galveston institution of fine dining to anyone wanting great food and great service.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy company I work at has hadMy company I work at has had a Pelican membership for years, but when with the family we usually eat in front with the same service.

Only miscue was hostess pressed wrong computer button and deleted our reservation after we had been seated.

Would return.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWOWFresh seafood, outstanding waitstaff and great location rates top stars in all categories. The cream of poblano soup is to die for. The shrimp peque was one of the most original and wonderful experiences in a loooong time. Bottom line, do not pass go, do not collect $200, head to Guidos as fast as possible.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMValerie is a fantastic waitress,Valerie is a fantastic waitress, a true "one of a kind gem!"2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and excellentExcellent food and excellent service, albeit just a bit expensive.
We enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner (and Cakebread wine) immensely.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gulf's Finest GemGaido's seafood has been setting the standard for fresh Gulf Seafood for over 100 years. The service is amazing each and every time I eat there. The staff are always extremely friendly and I can't say enough about their seafood. The snapper is filleted right in front of you behind their bar. They are that proud of it. The seasonal seafood is awesome. Right now they are starting to roll out crab season and I can't way until the new menu is in place. If you like seafood and a restaurant with a great view this is the place to be!2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE THIS PLACEWorth coming from far away! I love this place each time I get a chance to get that way. You will love the experience and yes it can be pricey but well worth the quality and service!8/27/2012 12:00:00 AM
