This would have been a 2-star rating if not for the friendliness and competence of the wait staff. My wife and I had dinner there our first night in Galveston, and were disappointed. Nothing was bad - the food was just ordinary, beginning with the cornbread muffins which were tasty but dry. We shared the calamari appetizer, which was ok... More

a wonderful Sunday brunch with mimosas! A wide variety of offerings including seafood along with made to order omelets and a pasta station. We made a reservation the night before through open table just to be on the safe side and we were seated in the lovely area with a view of the Seawall and Gulf. A little pricey but... More

Took family on Christmas to the Galvez for the Buffett. Lots of food options. Loved the seafood of course- raw shrimp and oysters. The prime rib was great. The red fish was ok. The desserts were outstanding especially the banana foster. The only downside was the wine and prosecco. Very sweet. Needed a dry vintage to complement the seafood

Dinner was nice and our server was very efficient and attentive. The food is average, at least what I had. Nothing worth the price. Breakfast was really poor service and really overpriced with average food. We had vouchers so it was free and glad it was. Would not pay that much for that poor service and average food.

Family recommended the bar & grill for drinks, bar food & jazz. As it was xmas eve, there was no music but the atmosphere, service & food was great! We enjoyed the museum in the basement, the historic beauty of the architecture & landscaping & overall atmosphere at Christmas time.

First time for Brunch there that we were absolutely & totally disappointed. Everything was cold! Mashed potatoes, vegys, every thing that should have at least been warm was not. Prime rib was nothing more than over done roast beef. Chicken panetta was way far dried out. No bakery quality breads or danish - it was Entemann's for Pete's sake!!! Not... More

This was my third year to have Thanksgiving at The Galvez. As before the selection was varied, seafood, salad, pasta along with more standard Thanksgiving fare. The food was delicious and the desert offerings were absolutely sinful. Service is top notch even on such a busy day. The decor is festive. The hotel is lovely and historic. Another wonderful holiday... More
