Katie's Seafood House
- CarlaApr. 9, 2022Good food!
I ordered the Lunch Fresh Fish and Shrimp Basket served with Fries and Cole Slaw. Fried to perfection. They brought Tillie a bowl of water. It was a mild windy day, but protected on the patio and the propane heaters made it very comfortable. We watched the seagulls and the boat traffic on the water. Very enjoyable.

We took our two little Yorkies to spend time in Galveston and decided to visit Katie’s Seafood due to the dog friendly reviews.
Our little Yorkies are 5 and 9 pounds. When our table was ready we asked if we needed to go the dog entrance, but due to the stroller they were in and their size, we were allowed to walk (push them) through the restaurant to the outdoor seating.
The hostess and waitress were very accommodating and stopped by several times to interact with our dogs.
We ordered drinks and appetizers, the smoky boudin balls and the garlic cheese toast with crab and shrimp.
Shortly thereafter, we ordered an unseasoned chicken breast for our pups, which we have done numerous times at dog friendly restaurants. Our waitress came back and said that they couldn’t cook the chicken breast for our pups, because they couldn’t eat at the restaurant. We were somewhat surprised, because this was the first time that this has ever happened to us.
Before our appetizers arrived, we pulled out our portable water bowl and filled it and set at the corner of the table. Our dogs were able to reach this from the stroller. So they were able to drink up. Within minutes, we were told that we can’t have the water bowl on the table, so we removed the bowl as not to cause any issues.
It’s a health code thing they kept saying. We did what we could do to respect that.
Our appetizers arrived and were very good except we thought the garlic cheese toast didn’t have enough cheese.. It’s wasn’t stringy when we pulled it apart.
My wife and I felt that they were watching us and our dogs so we decided to finish our appetizers and move on.
So the final tally, the food we ordered was a 4, the dog friendly rating was 2 two based upon our experience here -vs- all other places we have visited over the past several years.
Having said that, we do plan on returning without our dogs.
Your mileage might vary.

Katie’s has a wonderfully huge deck that provided plenty of shade for about 20+ tables. Water view. The waiter was very friendly and attentive and provided water for our fur baby. Would recommend it highly!

I tried the smoked shrimp stuffed boudin balls. They were amazing! I've never had boudin before so a new experience. Dogs are welcome in their outdoor patio.
