Gluten Free Restaurants in Galveston, Texas

I wish that I had more to report today, unfortunately, I do not. My sister in law has come down with Covid while we’re at the beach and we’re all in quarantine together!

If you follow me on social media than you know ever since I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac I really have a hard time traveling because there’s so much prep and research that has to go into the trip. Specifically where are we going to eat because you can’t just wing it and if you’ve ever traveled with a toddler than you know you need to be eating before they’re hungry!

These are all of the restaurants that I had designated as safe restaurants to eat at. When we travel TripAdvisor is my most trusted resource. I’ve used their recommendations for years and we have NEVER been disappointed.

1. Fisherman’s Wharf (Lunch)

2. Shrimp & Stuff (downtown)

There are two listed on TripAdvisor. I don’t know if they’re owned by the same group but only the one downtown is listed as gluten free. However, just the Shrimp & Stuff has more reviews.

3. Fish Tails (Lunch)

I wanted to take Kricket to ride the carousel down on the Pier. This restaurant is near the pier so that’s why this one is on my list. If you decide to go down to the Seawall it’ll be nice to know something is safe!

4. Nick’s Kitchen & Beach Bar (Lunch)

5. Blvd Seafood (Dinner)

My sister in law had some friends just get back from Galveston and they recommended this restaurant. I’m happy to report that it is gluten free friendly.

6. Saltwater Grill (Dinner)

This was another restaurant that they recommended and it’s also gluten free friendly. The reason that I have Blvd. and this restaurant listed as dinner spots is because when I went over their menus there were more gluten free options on their dinner menu.

7 Gaido’s (Dinner)

This is ranked as #1 on TripAdvisor and we eat here every time we come to Galveston. FYI parking is horrible and it’s right on the Seawall. I’d also try to get reservations for during the week since the Seawall won’t be as crowded.

We normally eat in the restaurant but my brother in law decided to call in the food and we’d pick it up on our way in. Do NOT try to order gluten free over the phone. You have to go through the bartender and she was horrible. When I’ve ordered from a waiter they’re beyond accommodating. Going so far as to make sure to use fresh pots and pans to avoid any cross contamination.

8. Shearn’s Seafood (Dinner)

This is ranked #4 on TripAdvisor. If you’re looking for a nice Seafood and steak restaurant to get a little dressed up for. Not crazy fancy but khakis and a sport coat this is your place. It also has the most beautiful views. We try to make this our big dinner for the Friday before we leave on Sunday.

9. Hotel Galvez (Dinner/ Drinks)

The reason I have this listed as drinks is because this past Tuesday night everyone went to dinner here except for me, David and Kricket. She was being a beast that day and we didn’t want to take her anywhere! Anyhow, when everyone got back from dinner they were NOT impressed. They said that they were VERY understaffed and that the food wasn’t very good. I think by the time it finally came out (they said it took over 30 minutes for the food to come out) that it was cold. Just not a good experience. However, my nephew (who’s about to be 10) informed me that the new decor was so cool! The hotel went through a major renovation in 2021. Tommy said that the chandeliers were really and so was the bar. It’s a really cool hotel / resort in general so that’s why I have it listed for drinks. It is gluten free friendly so I’m sure you could get some yummy appetizers.
