I know there was just a recent post about Galveston. But, are there any suggestions for restaurants by the Surfside area? We may go do the tourist thing for a couple of days in Galveston, but I'm not sure yet. I'm looking for either nice restaurants or hole in the wall, doesn't matter to me, as long as it's seafood.
I get plenty of other good food where I live, but not too much seafood.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions! :)
Ok for surfside...trust me...go to Willie Joe's, it is a small little joint with the best damn crab cakes I have ever tasted. It is before the big bridge that dumps you right into Surfside. Blue and white building.
The owner had previously worked as a chef for some pretty big name seafood places around, and finally branched out and did his own thing. Living his dream. I gathered all this from the back of his menu.
I have also had the crawfish there, and while the biggest I have had this season, it needed a bit more kick for me.
But hands down, the crab cakes are divine. Mashed potatoes are pretty good as well!
Red Snapper Inn. The Houston Press wrote it up in 2001. I never tried it. Check as it may be closed between lunch and dinner.
Another place I never tried but was mentioned in response to an old posting on the area is in Freeport: On The River, 979 233 1352, 919 W. 2nd. Stuffed flounder, coleslaw, hush pups. I don't even know if it's open any more.
