Best Restaurants in Galveston

A Story By

It’s the day-old question that nobody ever seems to know the answer to: where should we go out to eat tonight? We all too often get caught up visiting our favorite restaurants over and over again – I mean they are our favorites for a reason, right?

Whether it’s because familiarity is easy, or perhaps we are too lazy to take a risk on something new. I know the latter is true for us! Whatever the excuse may be, we have done the hard work for you, and compiled a list of the top restaurants in Galveston that you MUST add to your favorites!

Starting off our best restaurants in Galveston list, we bring the delightfully splendid Number 13! This may just be your next lucky spot! A high end yet beachy casual flare with a superb menu to match the elegant atmosphere.

Choose to sit on the patio and enjoy views of the waters, or opt to dine indoors and let the friendly staff spoil you with their knowledge and delicious recommendations! May we suggest starting with the Mussels Calabrese, moving to the Simply Oak Grilled Grouper, and ending with Texas Peach and Pecan Crostada. We promise…you will thank us later!

Did someone say shrimp tacos?! If not, you best change your mind and RUN, don’t walk over to Shrimp N Stuff to try their shrimp tacos! We aren’t lying when we say we have found a mouthwatering menu! You better come to this next spot for dinner in Galveston hungry! Not only does it look picture-perfect, but boy does it taste it too!

Shrimped N Stuff was voted best seafood Galveston county-wide in 2019, and for good reason! This is “good mood food” for the whole family. This is a very casual locals’ favorite spot, but a true treat for anyone passing through as well! You truly can not go wrong with a single thing on their menu!
