ready to #celebratedelicious?

The fourth annual Galveston.com & Company Galveston Restaurant Week - Saturday, January 10th to Saturday, January 24th, 2015 - brings Galveston Island's vibrant food scene to life for two full weeks of delicious dining. The event will showcase the freshest ingredients, most flavorful dishes and tastiest culinary gems that Galveston has to offer, as well as benefit the Galveston County Food Bank.

Home of the finest Gulf Coast seafood and some of Texas's most delectable restaurants, Galveston Island proudly welcomes visitors to Galveston Restaurant Week, where patrons can choose from Galveston's most delightful and delicious eateries for prix-fixe lunch and/or dinner menus - in attractive price points of $10, $15, $20, $25, $30, $35, and $40, depending on the restaurant.

Last year's event featured a vast array of Galveston Island eateries, and resulted in a very welcome boost during the Island's slower season of winter.

Participating in Galveston Restaurant Week is easy! There are no passes to buy, no coupons to carry, and no cards to punch, only a quick call to the restaurant of your choice to make reservations; then simply dine out during the period January 10-24. Reservations are strongly recommended to make sure you're able to sample your favorite flavors! The public is invited to experience cuisine that will amplify your palate and highlight the fun of dining on Galveston Island. Quite simply, this new culinary tradition promises to "celebrate delicious!" like no other event of the year.

Help Us Help the Hungry!

Solving the problem of hunger in Galveston County is not just a matter of getting more food to the needy. It's a matter of getting more food to the organizations that serve the needy. The solution is the Galveston County Food Bank, an interfaith community-based organization established solely to receive surplus food from restaurants, grocery stores, institutions that prepare meals, corporations that manufacture food products, food brokers and shippers.
