Galveston/Seawall Blvd seafood restaurant recommendations??

I'm looking for a good seafood restaurant in Galveston, preferably adjacent to Seawall Blvd, which a good view of the Gulf can be seen while dining. I thought about going to Fishtales, but have heard that they are expensive, and also that their gumbo is purposely watered down to extend out the batch.

I'm looking for a seafood restaurant that isn't too expensive. ..decent to moderately priced, and also serves alcoholic drinks. ...would be nice to also have an outdoor patio deck.

I don't know Fish Tales, but it's pretty moderately priced. Nothing is over $24, and many dishes are under $20. That's equivalent to Red Lbster, perhaps a couple of dollars more since I'm sure our prices here in the Northeast are more.

I know there's a Landrys there, and it is a reasonably reliable seafood chain. I've eaten at Landrys any times, though never in Galveston.

All seafood restaurants tend to be pricey, so I doubt you'll find anything much less expensive than Fish Tales.

Personally, I'd pay just a little more (and it's really not much more expensive) to go to Gaido's. It's classy and has been in Galveston for ages.

I second Gaido's. It's a Galveston institution.

If you want a little cheaper, go to their sister restaurant, Casey's Seafood Diner--same building and kitchen but diner booths instead of white tablecloths.

If you get a chance for a 2nd and more casual seafood meal, the locals go-to place is Shrimp 'N Stuff on Avenue O. H ave been there many times and always want to go back.

And if you decide you want a good burger, we love The Spot. It's right on the Seawall.
