After settling into the hotel, I stopped by The Bistro to ask for some restaurant recommendations. I wanted all things seafood. The staff was very helpful with options. The consensus from the three people that I spoke with was that it comes down to personal preference. I did a quick Google search on the recommended list and settled on Cajun Greek as the first stop.
The restaurant was a 12 minute drive from the hotel. Upon arrival, the first thing that I noticed was the limited parking in front of the building. Luckily, there was a bigger parking lot behind the building.
The restaurant had a horseshoe shaped bar and tons of seating throughout. The hostess did not ask where we wanted to sit, she merely told us to follow us. We were quickly seated in one of the back sections. They were limited on staff, so the smallest section in the restaurant contained most of the people. I should note that the people dining in the restaurant appeared to be tourists, while the people at the bar were locals.
We were provided menus and our drink orders were taken. A few minutes later, the waitress came back to verify our order. When she finally returned, we asked for food suggestions. She could not recommend any particular dish.
We decided on the stuffed crabs and seafood sampler. Both dishes were bland. The grilled seafood was edible but the fried oysters were not appetizing to me. Having lived in New England, with an abundance of fresh seafood, it was kind of disappointing to be eating frozen (then fried) seafood in a beach town. I almost chose the bucket of crawfish as my meal, but I did not want to go with the safe option.
Throughout the meal, service was very slow and at times, nonexistent. At one point, a second waitress starting clearing the table while we were still eating.
Cajun Greek restaurant established the baseline for all of the other restaurant that we would visit on Galveston Island. If I were to visit the restaurant again, I would definitely order the crawfish.
