Diner Reviews
  • "This is an outstanding Sunday Brunch. A large variety of food, something to please everyone, especially seafood lovers. The cold boiled shrimp, raw oysters, crab legs, and salmon were in good supply. Can't wait to go back. Oh! Did I mention the Mimosas?"

  • "We attended the Sunday brunch, very nice. Complimentary valet parking and the ambiance was elegant. My fiancé and I were very pleased and for an all you can eat buffet of food and for $100 it was well worth it. The 5 star chef did an amazing job. The Galvez will be seeing us again shortly."

  • "I took my brother and his wife for their 28th Wedding anniversary. I could not have picked a better place. Parking was complimentary and there was no waiting. The food was outstanding. Everything you could think of. The champagne was flowing freely. I would recommend their brunch to anyone!"

  • "Only one other couple in the restaurant, bad sign! Steaks way overcooked, veges mushy and no flavor. Sauce for steak suppose to be shrimp, tasted like Campbell's soup. No bread.. cold corn muffins. Calamari was tough and cold. Very bright, felt like eating at Luby's. Very disappointing for this beautiful Hotel."

  • "The location is beautiful for a Sunday brunch. We were disappointed with the food. Crab Claws were soggy, the green beans tasted like they had been microwaved. Desserts were definitely not made on the premises. I am Not sure it is worth the cost to eat brunch here."

  • "My partner and I were celebrating an anniversary and returned to our favorite brunch destination: Hotel Galvez. It was another memorable meal: great food, wonderful champagne, relaxed atmosphere. Make your reservation for 11:00 and just plan to stay until 2:30. They won't push you out, and you can enjoy your afternoon."

  • "We used Open Table to make reservations for Sunday Brunch. It was a bit pricey but WELL WORTH IT ! Usual stations - Omlette, waffles, desserts - plus a pasta station."

  • "Since it was Christmas Eve, there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant at 6 PM. The food was pretty awful. The quality of the fish and chips were notably the worst I have ever eaten. Actually the chips were not too bad, but you would be hard pressed to find "any" fish in what they considered the fish part. The batter was unbelievably thick and soggy! The fish had no taste and of poor texture (that is, what fish you could find). The other entree was pork chops, scalloped potatoes and grilled vegetables. The pork chops were tough, but had good flavor. The grilled vegetables were so over done, you could not tell one vegetable from the other. The scalloped potatoes had no distinguishable flavor either. Wish we ate elsewhere!"

  • "Was very excited to try Galvez' Sunday brunch, as it was rated one of the best in Texas! Man was I disappointed! Absolutely not worth the top dollar they charge for a brunch like that! The bread wasn't either tasty nor did it appear fresh in any way! The selection of fresh fruit was disappointing in taste! Many of the hot and the cold entrees was just not the quality one would expect for a place that was rated highly! I would not recommend it - nor will I be back at either the Sunday brunch or the Galvez overall as the whole hotel was a complete let down!"

  • "Hotel restaurants are never my first choice but we chose this for a meal after the drive from Austin. Food and service were very good but the restaurant was only one quarter occupied. Good and lively bar helped improve the mood."

  • "Lovely setting and the service was superb, but the food was hit and miss. Seafood was all great and plentiful, but not much else was as outstanding. The desserts were really a disappointment. They were not even tempting to look at. I expected better from the reviews I had read. Quantity is not nearly as enticing as quality."

  • "We've made an annual pilgrimage to brunch at the Galvez over Dickins on the Strand weekend for the past three years. Never disappointed. Magical culinary adventure the marries the past and the present under one roof. Champagne and mimosas generously served. Never an empty glass! Friendly staff and a scenic ocean view in the veranda make this a perfect experience regardless of the occasion. Truly the tradition continues!"

  • "Still a best restaurant for fresh gulf seafood. Excellent ambiance and service. If you only have one meal in Galveston, make it Gaidos."

  • "My wife and I took our son-in-law with our daughter and two toddler grandsons to Sunday brunch for his birthday and as soon as we arrived our hostess was more than accomodating in making the little ones comfortable. Later on when we mentioned it was a birthday celebration our waitress proceeded to sing 'Happy Birthday' ... in Italian!!! Much to everyone's delight, the array and quality of the food was equal to the great service. Come hungry!"

  • "Love the waffle and omlette station! You must also try the prime rib it was amazing! The best part about the brunch was seafood! Crab legs and crab fingers are to die for! Yummy! I can't forget to mention the bottomless mimosas! I'm from Houston and my husband and I travel to Galveston just for the brunch at the Galvez! You must try this place you won't be disappointed!"

We got our bill had been grated and on top of that left another 20% it's not a huge deal bc service was great!! But we were already spending money and of was bidder style. If wasn't as I the severs brought is our food"
