Restaurants in Galveston, TX

Locals and travelers to Galveston adore Miller’s Seawall Grill, a three-meal-a-day, family-run cafe with an ocean view and a menu that reflects Gulf-Coast Texas. That means the gumbo is great, as are grilled and fried shrimp and crab-corn chowder, and meals come with sweet, pillowy hushpuppies. Galveston also is home to Texas’ oldest pharmacy, Star Drug Store. Dating back to 1917, it sports an old-fashioned soda-fountain lunch counter and a menu that includes a 7-salad sampler plate, house-made pimento cheese, and half-pound burgers. Soda fountain specialties include a hot lava cake sundae, brown cows, black cows, and white cows, as well as a “shipwreck float”: a swirl of Coke, Dr. Pepper, root beer, and cherry syrup topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
