Galveston's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
We were there for our 35th Wedding Anniversary. The food and service was fabulous! The issue was a party of 6 next to us that were drunk and extremely loud. The entire restaurant was looking at them as they were disturbing everyone. We had a late reservation thinking it would be quiet. The 3 roses I requested and the dessert was complementary and a very nice touch. MoreOpenTable Diner -
On the small island of Galveston, most areas are geared toward tourism. That said, you'll find permanent locals enjoying fresh gulf shrimp, locally sourced steaks, or stuffed crab side-by-side with island visitors. Seawall dining, within walking distance of the surf, is generally more casual. More formal dining is available downtown. Many of the restaurants are owned and operated by second generation Galveston families, and the general atmosphere is open and welcome. As you would expect, the majority of eateries emphasize seafood that has been harvested from the surrounding gulf, although there are some Italian and even Greek restaurants sprinkled among the shrimp and lobster establishments.
