Love to eat at this place. The white lump crab meat in butter wine sauce is the BEST.. it may seem a little pricy.. but it is worth every bite.

We were traveling through Galveston and stopped in for an early dinner. The food was unbelievable as was the service. A nice setting overlooking the seawall beaches. My husband had Chicken Creole soup and Texas jumbo gulf shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. I had a huge...More

The meal was super. The crab mac and cheese alone is worth the trip. Seriously. The service was good but had to wait more than we wanted.

Finally tried to give Gaidos a try. Folks- there’s a reason they’ve been in business since 1911! This place is simply DIVINE! We had Luis as our waiter. He was on point! Highly recommend this place.

Best seafood I have ever had! Get the Parmesan crusted red snapper with a lemon butter cream sauce and jumbo lump crab...it will not disappoint. Our waiter, Dave, was the best and knowledgeable of the area. He gave us several suggestions on how to spend...More

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. -– for over 100 years – is truly the coastal classic.
