Sally was great! The food was amazing. Exactly what you’d expect from a company older than my grandad. We’re taking many boxes home with us.

We had at least people in Houston when we were there for the day tell us that we had to go to Gaido's, so we did. It wasn't too crowded and the atmosphere was perfect for conversation. Our waitress, Sally, was professional and explained everything...More

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.
