The water stated that that the reactant makes everything from scratch. Then had problems with helping to accommodate my wheat allergy. All gluten free meals come with plan white rice and asparagus. The flavor was missing. Over priced for the money.

There's a reason Gaido's is an institution. Amazing food - always consistent. Go hungry because you will leave requiring a nap. Red snapper Michael is the favorite along with the creamed spinach. We went on a Saturday around 3 pm and there was a decent...More

While expensive for lunch, the Redfish and the fried oysters were worth every penny. Having never had the Redfish, I was well pleased with both the taste and texture. The fried oysters were fresh from the Gulf and done perfectly. Get both the pamesan tomatoes...More

I did not see a child's menu. But the wait staff was very helpful. I am sure they will accommodate your granddaughter.

The toast of the Texas coast. How can frozen fish be called fresh? The answer for anyone with snap is simple: it can’t. That’s why Gaido’s is the classic choice for fresh Gulf seafood. Patrons know Gaido’s is real, when others are clearly not. From red snapper and blue crab to white tablecloths crumbed with panache, there’s no denying Gaido’s is one-of-a-kind in a world of imitation. Now, after four generations of filleting, frying, grilling and baking, Gaido’s has grown into the picture perfect place of traditions– birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, reunions. As the largest fresh fish house on the coast, Gaido’s can serve up to 2,500 happy diners a day. -– for over 100 years – is truly the coastal classic.
