I was thinking Gaido's after walking along the sea wall but looked at the menu, the prices, the service, and glanced at a few plates on tables and decided it definitely was not roadfood. Thus skipped it. The problem with seafood is you can get just as good in an inexpensive roadfood kind of place and often usually better. I ended up next door at Nick's Kitchen & Beach Bar for a burger. I was all seafooded out from three weeks in South Padre Island anyway with places like I mentioned.
Galveston has some good breakfast places. I recommend the Sunflower Bakery & Cafe
. It is pretty good for lunch as well.
