From their table at Jimmy's on the Pier, people can take in unobstructed views of the gulf, watching as waves bob gently toward the shore. On chillier days, the warmth from the fireplace radiates throughout the space, almost as welcome as the scent of fresh-baked breads coming from the kitchen. Those breads are used to sandwich everything from po' boys to burgers, both of which pair perfectly with hand-cut fries seasoned with sea salt. There's fresh seafood as well—the fish tacos are quite popular—and gluten-free pumpkin pancakes Jimmy's swears rival their traditionally prepared desserts. In the morning, a full espresso bar churns out coffee and lattes, and in the evening, bartenders serve up one of 100 beers and wines.

Dark wood and glowing lamps create an inviting atmosphere inside The M&M Restaurant & Bar, maintaining the building's place as a local institution in three centuries. Built for $500 in 1844, the restaurant has served generations of diners and even withstood the deadly hurricane of 1900. Changing hands and identities across the years, The M&M served as a saloon at the turn of the century, a grocer through Prohibition, and a boarding house during community productions of Oliver!. Today, chefs put together a menu that focuses on fresh seafood and juicy cuts of seared meats complemented by a rousing selection of libations. Families gather around tables topped with white linens or booths lined with green and brown fabrics, and summer months coax guests out onto the spacious patio.
Hailing from humble beginnings in a renovated Mississippian gas station, McAlister's Deli has revolutionized the concept of fast food with healthy fare recognized by Parents in 2009. Premium ingredients, such as Black Angus roast beef and black forest ham, pile upon stuffed potatoes or artisan bread, sating hungers and silencing stomachs before they recite bank-account numbers. As patrons wait for servers to deliver meals, they sip signature sweet tea, swirled together onsite daily from pure cane sugar and a rainforest-certified black-tea blend as dictated by a closely guarded recipe.
The chefs at Steve's Landing on Bolivar Peninsula, a short ferry ride from Galveston Island, are very picky about the sources of the ingredients in their surf and turf. There is, however, one ingredient they never turn down: a customer's own catch of the day. They can park their boats at the restaurant's dock after a day on the water and bring in their fish for chefs to filet and prepare in the fashion of one of the restaurant's featured dishes. This means that their locally caught filets can be transformed into fish tacos or be drizzled in chimichurri sauce just like the house salmon. Guests can also enjoy waterfront dining and an outside patio bar with their meals.
Along with these American classics, the cooks prepare the fruits of the sea in a variety of international flavors. Fresh snapper, fresh fruit mojitos, and crab cakes await hungry customers. They marinate shrimp in a tandoori sauce, serve jumbo lump crab cakes with a Cajun remoulade, and serve up fresh mounds of oysters during oyster season starting every November. All of these dishes can be paired with one of the house's premium steaks––including a 10-ounce filet mignon and a 12-ounce ribeye––to create the perfect balance of flavors.
