Vargas is arguably the top high end resturant on Galveston Island . From the quality of their cuts of meat and selections of fresh seafood . Their offerings, while not extensive are more than satisfying for the most discerning of tastes . The attentiveness of the waitstaff is near perfect ( Thanks Blake ) and synchronized serving makes it special. Still there is always room for improvement. I had soft shell crab, with an outstanding presentation . The cost was higher than any of their non wagyu steaks on the menu, but worth it ! However, the suggested presentation was over mashed potatoes ( Really? ) . The good news is they had no issue in substituting the potatoes for a small portion of angel hair pasta with a light lemon burre blanc ! IMO a better pairing . My wife had lamb chops ( among the best we ever had anywhere , no side sauce necessary . The lobster mac and cheese was good ,however the cheese took on pink tinge and the flavor (from sweet red peppers? ) took away from the generous lobster within ! We loved the half bottles of wine , which made it easy to have a variety of wines with the meal , very much appreciated for a party of two and found the selection different and more interesting than the wine by glass list. We dinned early and the resturant had a lot of light coming in from the windows . Light diffusing shades or even curtains would have made the experience more intimate and cozy . All in all an outstanding resturant for a special occasion . Definitely a top notch special occasion place . We will visit again !

About the restaurant
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.

First time here at Shearns, we are from California staying at Moody Gardens. Our waiter Damian, was oustanding in all aspects. Food, portions, price point and service was spot on! Damian took the time to address all aspects of the menu with recommendations. Kudos for a job well done! I highly recommend Shearns Seafood and Prime Steaks!

Contemporary American
Galveston
About the restaurant
An American Fine-ish Dining establishment inspired by local ingredients and French cuisine, with a dash of artistic liberty and a lot of personality.

Think the type of French cuisine you’d see at a dinner party hosted by your Aunt who summers in Provence, says Paris like “Pear-REE”, but also drinks beer only from a can with a koozie. American Fine-ish Dining is serious about its European flavors and techniques, but is also conscious of the very real need to chill out when 30 yards from the beach. Guests can expect progressive American-by-way-of-France cuisine that feels distinctly like the regional cuisine Texans have traditionally flocked to Galveston for.

The Fancy at Hotel Lucine sits neatly at the intersection of 10th & Seawall Blvd - we're about as close to the water as a hotel can get without high tide lapping at your bedside.

Our 39th anniversary was amazing! We ordered tuna carpaccio, Caesar salad, crab cake small, mussels with toast as smalls. Bigs were roasted chicken and red snapper. The four of us were very pleased with every bite. We dine together frequently and all agreed that we would love to come again. We ordered two bottles of Malbec and tried a Cabernet Sauvignon offered by the sommelier. Malbec opened beautifully. Cab was jammy good. Complimentary butter cake with crème brûlée was literally devoured in seconds. Kudos to the chef for presentation and quality of ingredients. Our waitress (an Ecuadorian molecular biology student, was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions.🌹🌹🌹 We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Run don’t walk to the Fancy🍾🍾🍾 PS Bring a wrap or jacket. The much appreciated a/c works😎😎😎

We were there to celebrate my sons birthday. We had reservations, which I highly recommend. The staff is courteous, and the service is prompt. The food was tasty but not served as hot as I would have liked. The butter and cheese did not melt on my baked potato. They can accommodate large groups as well as small tables for 2.
