Default Galveston best restaurants?

My wife, son, and I are staying at Crystal Beach for the next 5 days. We plan on going to Galveston a few times for eating out at night. What are your favorite places particularly seafood that you suggest??

Shrimp N stuff has never disappointed.
Tried the Tipsy Turtle last week, it wasn't bad. Right on the beach, outdoor only though.

We've ate number 13 steakhouse three times this week, I've had the 30 day dry aged ribeye, the wagyu flight, and the grill combo. Also some amazing wines, really nice wine list

We also really liked the gumbo bar thats downtown for lunch, pretty cool menu

The worse place was called the "porch" every time we ordered something they would come back and say they where out. The only thing on the menu was chicken, it would have been easier if they had just said that....they where also out of tequila and vodka. The only place where we thought of getting up and leaving because of the service.

Last night we went to the hotel galvaz for drinks at their bar

Skip that ferry line and go to Stingaree every night. Great place to eat on Bolivar.

Higher-end
Rudy & Pacos
The Steakhouse at the San Luis
Number 13

Mid-tier
Black Pearl
Bennos
Cajun Greek
Shrimp N Stuff is ok if you want fried seafood
Gypsy Joint for the non-seafood people

Breakfast
Mosquito Cafe
Sunflower Bakery
Galvez has a great brunch, but I think it's Sundays only

With that said, the ferry line can be miserable, so I'll 3rd on eating at Stingray a few times. Not saying you shouldn't venture into Galveston, but take that into consideration.

Ferry wait will probably damper those plans…. Cajun Greek is good, the original for Mexican, Pappas pizza and wings, gypsy joint pretty good with a variety of sandwiches and burgers and other things. Sunflower bakery if looking for breakfast or lunch place. Number 13 of looking for higher end place, shrimp and stuff if looking for good seafood. But stingaree might be the place to go instead of waiting hours in ferry line

Not sure how old your son is but I would recommend going to La King’s in the Strand for some candy and good house made ice cream. It’s a favorite for our kids. Captain Dave has some good recommendations. I also like Mario’s on 61st St for pizza and Queen’s for BBQ.

Rudy and pacos as mentioned already, one of my favorite spots. Awesome food, great service. Wife and I like the calamari, snapper simpatico and Pollo Managua.
Sunflower bakery for breakfast, make sure you have on shorts with elastic.

If you don't visit those 2 places atleast, then you've really missed out.

Stingaree is the best in my opinion. We love that place. Get the shrimp en brochette for an appetizer

Yeah, if you are already almost within walking distance, why drive to Galveston?

Ö.. unless someone just wants to go to Galveston for the experience or to ride the ferry which is kind of a tourist attraction in itself.

We just got back from there. Went to the spot(food was ok but the format is horrible), fish tales(food was fine), and Gaidoís. Gaidos was outstanding. I highly recommend the crabmeat cheesecake.
