Seafood

The toast of the Texas coast.
How can frozen fish be called fresh? The answer for anyone with snap is simple: it can’t. That’s why Gaido’s is the classic choice for fresh Gulf seafood. Patrons know Gaido’s is real, when others are clearly not. From red snapper and blue crab to white tablecloths crumbed with panache, there’s no denying Gaido’s is one-of-a-kind in a world of imitation. Now, after four generations of filleting, frying, grilling and baking, Gaido’s has grown into the picture perfect place of traditions– birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, reunions. As the largest fresh fish house on the coast, Gaido’s can serve up to 2,500 happy diners a day. Plus, with the Pelican Club, private dining, catering, a new food truck and parking galore…it’s easy to see why Gaido’s -– for over 100 years – is truly the coastal classic.

He exceeded all expectations with his suggestions and great attitude. I was displeased with our seating with reservations and the place not even a third full we were placed agains the back wall. I have Bern dining at Gaidos since 1964 and have never had such poor seating even without reservations! I enjoyed the poblano soup that I would recommend highly! It was unbelievable! Lump crab meat in an Asiago sauce and a baked potato served the old fashioned way with the continents in a tray and dressed at the table. My husband enjoyed the tile fish with a crab topping that was beyond description. Kevin was waiting on many tables but kept checking on us and making sure all our needs we being met! It was a wonderful experience. Our first visit since Covid as we live three hours away. Gaidos has always been our special celebration spot.

Both were outstanding. Tried their savory crab cheesecake appetizer loved it. Very unusual and delicious! You can’t go wrong with Gaido’s. There is a reason they have been around since 1911!

Blackened redfish was good, but the rice below was not hot. Truffle fries were cold. Our waitress must have missed the “order up” bell. When I politely mentioned the above, she obviously didn’t care. We won’t return. Too bad. Gaidos used to be top tier. Not any more.

We were 10 minutes early and they were 10 minutes late in seating us. The restaurant was packed. The food was great. They had several choices for me as a GF diner. The server worked hard, but the food did not come out together for our group and not all of the parts to the meal were delivered in a timely manner. This was probably due to the high volume of the day. In all it was a very enjoyable experience.

I'm not a big eater, so I ordered what I always order which was the shrimp salad. Gaido's had changed the recip. I wasn't crazy about it. The other members of my party were happy with their meals. The interior of Gaido's could use a little sprucing up. The chair I was sitting in had definitely seen better days. It was like the cushion springs were shot. All in all, we had a nice time.

Our server took 10-15 minutes between each time he came to our table. My son ate his meal with no drink and no side which was forgotten. It was his birthday so we were promised a desert. After being there for over an hour and 15 minutes, we passed on desert and left. Our food took forever to get there and my fried shrimp was cold.

The owner was nice enough to call me the day before and warn me about the construction on 45 and recommended I take an alternate route. Now that’s what I call above and beyond customer service!!!

Our service was sub-par; waiting on the most basic such as water, etc. I know we had a large table and we do dine often, but seating large groups without a reservation first and moderate service, we’ll consider before coming back. This makes me sad because we love gaidos.

Also, the crab cheesecake (a savory appetizer) is to die for! Oh, and the key lime cheesecake is my favorite dessert.
