Who's ready for crawfish season? Due to the warm winter here along the Texas Gulf Coast, the season has arrived early!
The little red crustacean is found in Cajun and Creole food throughout the south, cooked every which way imaginable. In fact, one of the most popular questions we hear is "when is crawfish season in Galveston?" Mudbug season across the south is typically February through May, so we’ve created a list to help you choose a spot to get to peelin'.
Voted best crawfish on the island (2020) and in Galveston County (2019), Huli Huli Hut is a bright, Hawaiian-style restaurant serving lunch, dinner, and drinks in a beautiful tropical setting. Visit this hidden paradise and grab as many pounds of crawfish you can handle at an unbeatable price.
Looking for fresh local seafood and a casual beachfront atmosphere? Benno's on the Beach has both! Their menu offers a variety of Cajun grilled or golden fried entrées, as well as perfectly seasoned, peel and eat, hot boiled shrimp, crabs, and, of course, crawfish!!
