Re:Help needed for Galveston, Texas
The Family and I go to Galveston occasionally to deep sea fish. We spent 4 days there this summer. The places we dined that were really good were--
Papa's Pizza on the Seawall Blvd. -- ( the best shrimp po-boy I had in Galveston. I wouldn't have believed it either but the family wanted pizza and pasta which they really liked. I ordered the po-boy per the cooks suggestion and it was great.)
Shrimp N' Stuff on Avenue O -- ( The deckhands on the charter boat recommended it as a local favorite and it was good especially the stuffed shrimp.)
Olympia The Grill at Pier 21 on 21st street -- ( We ate here at lunch and I had a special of grilled fish with sauce. It was very good and my family liked what they ordered. I think the kids had burgers and my wife had a fried combo of fish and crab balls.)
Gaido's Famous Seafood on Seawall Blvd. -- ( It was good and been in business a long time.)
I hope this helps. If you have time to ride the ferry its free and we saw a few dolphins each time we have ridden it. The line to drive on is usually long and you have to wait but if you get in the right lane and drive straight up to the parking lot you can walk right on. The water in Galveston is pretty dirty due to lots of boat and ship traffic so most people go here for fishing and if its close but usually go on down towards Corpus Christie and Padre for good beaches and cleaner Water. I hope this helps you, it is a fun town.
