    Superb….one could have an endless debate about which restaurant on the island is the best - Rudy and Paco or Vargas. The answer is both. Vargas was superb as usual!

    Not only was the food excellent, but our waitress who said she had not been working there long was exceptional. Highly recommend this place.

    Specifically chose for New Years Day meal as they used to serve a small bowl of traditional Black Eyed Peas to every table for the NYD Holiday. Apparently, they do not do this anymore. Probably showing my age, but nevertelhess, was dissapointed. Had the whole stuffed flounder. Along with some delicious lump crabmeat on top, the stuffing had "salad" shrimp mixed in. Good seafood restaurants like Gaido's should NEVER use those, in any dish. Such things belong in the "seafood salad" along with the imitation crab at the local all-you-can eat buffet. Soured the experience of enjoying a $61 fish plate.

Discover Galveston

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.
