I was here alone on a business trip the weekend before Christmas, and had a wonderful late lunch here. The food was very interesting and unique, the service was excellent, and of course the ambiance and view is very special in this beautiful old hotel. I will come back to the hotel with my family, and we will definitely have... More

Another hotel restaurant that makes no reasonable accommodation for the disabled. Talked to management; they wouldn't budge. They have no handicapped parking for disabled people who come in just for dinner. Have to use "free" valet parking. We wouldn't because that pretty much means healthy people can walk in off the street for free, but we can't because of the... More

This place could be much better if they found a better way to line up their patrons.It's hard to enjoy you meal with people standing over your table while in line while you eat.Who ever laid this place out should be taken out and shot.Parking was also an issue.And last but not least they did'nt have catfish fillets except on...

I won't visit Galveston without a trip to Bernardo's for brunch. When I lived on the island, it was a once a month event. Now that I'm a visitor, we stay an extra night just to have brunch.

We were at the hotel for the ghost tour and dinner. Our service was probably different than we would have received in a smaller group. There was about 22 of us at a large table. We chose the porkchops as our entree and were pleased with the taste. Food was warm when it arrived. Porkchops were tender and the glaze... More

We took our visiting Kansas City friends for brunch. Wow what a treat. The many well prepared selections, continuously served and included mimosas, great service staff, the ambience of the old Hotel Galvez with wonderful live piano music in the background and the view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico made for an incredible Sunday morning brunch. The ham and prime... More

Shrimp gumbo is a house speciality. Kind of pricey but inline with other hotels. Service good. Beautiful surroundings.

We've been staying at the Galvez for some time now, but aside from the breakfast buffet, we've rarely eaten at the hotel...until now. During our last three visits on Mother's Day, Memorial Day and then 4th of July, we've dined in the restaurant and/or had room service. I'll go ahead and get the cons out of the way by saying...
