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.

    Our dining experience at Katie's Seafood House was amazing. The seafood was as fresh as it could be. Delicious, delectable, tasty, and incredible. Ask for Alex! He was the most attentive wait person and he only enhanced our dining experience. We enjoyed our food thoroughly along with the energetic atmosphere. Go to Katie's and enjoy the best seafood ever!

    The staff was very friendly with great service. They were very efficient and we never had to wait long for anything from start to finish of our meal. We made reservations and were taken in immediately upon arrival. Had our dog so we sat on the patio which was very nice with view of marina. Very accommodating to our dog and they brought him a bowl of water right away. Food was excellent! We had the crab cakes and chicken and cocktails. Also had one of their deserts and it was a yummy finish to a good meal! Parking was right in front of restaurant free with a code. Everything was just perfect and we had a very nice dinner! Would definitely go back. I do highly recommend making a reservation- because they do get busy and we went right in as opposed to people who were waiting that just showed up.

    My sister's and I heard from several people on our Galveston vacation that Katie's seafood was the best restaurant in all of Galveston, we were not disappointed! I made the reservation earlier that day, and glad we did because the restaurant we very busy. We started our dinner with the corn bread and honey butter as an appetizer....fabulous! For dinner, two of my sister's ordered the caribbean style fish dinner that they thought was amazing. Another sister and I split the crab cakes, and the 5th sister ordered the fried fish and chips dinner. We all thought the dinners were tasty and filling. The wine prices were reasonable, and the service was outstanding. Our only disappointment was that we didn't request the outside dining area when we made our reservation. Our next visit to Galveston Katie's seafood will be at the top of the list for our dinner plans.

    Tourist trap. Located in busy harbor area near cruise ship and has outside seating along ship channel. However, food was not good. Side dishes tasted like they were from a box & seafood was sorely disappointing. Had high expectations based on ratings. For the prices, I felt bamboozled.

    Food was delicious, portions very large. We ordered too much food. Wish we had not ordered a salad and the delicious garlic cheese bread. They now have gluten free options. Butternut squash bisque with crab was delicious. Fish of the day was tile fish with Brussels sprouts, excellent. The breaded shrimp were really good. Burger was good. Would go again but would order half the food.
