Seafood
In 1998, Buddy Guindon, his wife Katie, and his brother Kenny opened Katie's Seafood Market in Galveston, Texas. For more than 20 years now, Katie's Seafood Market has provided the highest quality of products available to its customers. The majority of seafood comes from local fishermen and shrimpers, including Red Snapper, Grouper, Golden Tile Fish, Flounder, Oysters, Shrimp, and Blue Crabs. A producer contacted Guindon in the hopes of doing a reality show about his family business. In 2015, the reality show 'Big Fish Texas' came to life on National Geographic. As a supporter of the local economy, In September of 2019, Buddy opened Katie’s Seafood House, next to the market. Katie’s seafood market supplies the restaurant with all fresh seafood. We take pride in being the only local seafood restaurant on the island that brings fresh fish straight from the boat and to your table.

    Order the cornbread!! Best we EVER ate! We ordered shrimp dishes which were plentiful and good! My only regret is not asking the waiter the cost of a slice of Key Lime pie! He just told us the desserts without our seeing a menu with prices! If I knew it cost $10.00 for a slice - I would NEVER had ordered it!! I have NEVER paid $10.00 for a WHOLE pie! Ridiculous price!!! This meant they get about $80.00 for a whole pie!! ASK prices before ordering dessert!

    We had a great Seafood Dinner the night before Thanksgiving. The only down side is that the food is so fresh that it will spoil one’s tastebuds when going to other seafood restaurants around the state. We had another great experience. Thank you Katie’s! Keep up the good work.

    I came for my birthday and had a great time. Vernon was my server and he was perfect in every way. Attentive without interrupting, and made us all feel special. We ended up having to leave earlier than planned because I wasn't feeling well, but still had a great night.

    The main course was excellent, as usual. I wasn't really happy with the appetizers. We had to wait a long time for our bill, as our waiter was taking an order at a table, where the people had tons of questions, and then took a long time to order. I feel he should have excused himself to bring us our check, as he could see we were waiting quite a while, and had young children with us.

    First, the good things— the fried shrimp and fries, coleslaw and hush puppies were excellent. However, the char-grilled oysters were not edible. Out of half dozen, only two were even eaten; the others had the consistency of rubber , not even chewable and had to be discretely spit out into a napkin. I’ve never sent anything back, but this should have been my first. My suggestion is that when there are no good oysters available, take them off the menu. Don’t offer inferior items just because they’re on the menu. Take quality control seriously.

    We have been here several times and have been very pleased. We have learned to try to plan ahead if possible and make reservations, highly recommend. Dining inside can be a little loud and busy but very comfortable. We love dining outside and they make it pleasant summer or winter. We dined outside Oct 29th at 6:45 and it was very intimate and romantic where we were seated at a table just for two and a little secluded. The service is great, staff are friendly. Fresh food is FANTASTIC !!! A must stop while in Galveston !!!
