Tips from locals
If you are willing to venture off the island, this is the place to go. Hidden away in San Leon, Gilhooley's is a no-kids, no-pets establishment with cheap oysters and ice cold beer.
Smoked grilled oysters are their claim to fame and their prices are going up, but worth the price if you love oysters. Other food on the menu like burgers and chicken fried steak are big hits too. Only about 8 minutes away.
This place is a true DIVE, but they have good food! They have a comfort food/seafood menu. Daily lunch specials that are very affordable, a decent seafood gumbo, oysters, seafood sandwiches, and more. Figure $10-$20 for most items, but lunch specials are often less.
THE most amazing pecan grilled oysters on the half shell. order Oysters Shrimphooley. The decorum is...well...rustic "redneck"? but the food in general is off the chain. sadly, they do not allow children so.....plan this venue as an adult only diversion. It was once rated by the magazine…
