Big fan of Gilhooley's. This is your no-nonsense hole-in-the-wall hidden gem. Definitely a "dive" and if I'm not mistaken was featured on Diners, Drive Ins,...read more

My boyfriend heard about Gilhooley's on GQ magazine. The ambiance was great! Divey but cozy with a great patio. The oysters shrimphooley were delicious! Not...read more

not a good evening at gilhooleys: Was looking forward to going back to Gilhooleys,I have been there once and the food and service was good.On this second visit,I sat at the bar ordered food and drinks,asked the bartender for an ash tray.While she was bringing the ash…read more
Best Grilled Oysters Around: Gilhooley's is great! Yes, it's a dive. Those are usually the best places to go and hang out with family and friends. Here you don't have to worry about what your wearing and, don't have to worry about your pocket book either. The food is…read more
Not a Good Experience: I recently went to Gillhooley's for the second time. If this had been my first time, I would not have gone back or recommended it to the friend I brought along. The first time I went (Spring 2010), the Oysters were great - I had the ones…read more
What happened??: Have been going to this place for upteen years, long before it moved and have always had a longing for the Oysters Gillhoughy's. 8 mile to a clean restroom but the food was worth it. Until now.\r Took a friend in for his first visit and…read more
Gilhooley's saved my night!: I have been into Gilhooley's twice now, once this last summer, and the other day after I left another place that was horrible. This past summer the oysters were very small, but now that they are coming back in season it seems that they are…read more
First time ever--BIG DISAPPOINTMENT: For the first time ever we went to Gilhooley's last night and were soooo disappointed. It took 1 1/2 hours to get our oysters and they were like charcoal. The raw ones were good but the Shrimphooleys and the Gilhooleys oyters were burned.…read more
Great food, but no kids hampers this young parent: Love the food, but it is annoying that kids aren't allowed. Driving from Pearland just to get some oysters isn't quite enough for me to pay a babysitter. I would be happy to sit in some far off corner outside with my kid to enjoy those…read more
its ok but Tommyis in Clear Lake rocks: The quality of Gilhooley's has diminished substantially since my first visit in 2006. The only perks is the BYOB policy and funny personal wait staff. Tommy's Oyster Bar in Clear Lake is 10X better, for a lower price M-F, and the restroom…read more

Gilhooleys suck: I went to Gilhooleys recently and its realy going down on quality, For one I dont understand why theve cut out sweet n low .. I love unsweet tea with sweet n low, and I dont understand why they would just stop having it!!! Then i saw a…read more
Just got back from Gilhooley's: I saw another review which said the oysters were too small. While I was there, we ate oysters, crabcakes, and chicken fried chicken. The food was delicious, the beer was cold and the service was good. The oysters were normal size, but they…read more
BEST DANG PLACE IN SAN LEON: We can't get enough of this place! It's wonderful, no screaming, running around, whining, crying little kids to listen too. You can go as dressy, or as casual as you want to. The service is usually prompt, and the food is always great! You…read more
: We waited a 1 hour, 20 minutes for our food. Saturday afternoon, Jan 19th, 2013. The lightly breaded oysters were heavy breaded. Most of the food was cold. Entrees came out in shifts.\r The bathrooms were the worst bathrooms ever seen.…read more
Killer Food: No kids for a reason. Why do people have them anyway? The food is consistently great. Had a great lunch there this past Monday. Oysters Shrimpooley (sp?). Fab.read more
: I had very good experiences here. The chicken livers are AMAZING...portions are huge, staff is very friendly.....taking out of town guests there soon!!!! YUM!!!read more
oysters, I dream of you....: RAW OYSTERS!! It's the best, it's a dive, they don't allow children. \r You want'em cooked, go to your local Pappa's whatever!read more
: Here's a tip for "clearlakefriends": I think the owner would've preferred the "Troll" remark over the implication that he's a Yankee!! He's no Yankee!! read more
Know Before You Go: From S Hwy 146, turn left onto FM 646 and then right onto W Bayshore Dr for 3.6 miles. Turn right onto 9th Street, and you'll see a mini-golf-style whale and a gravel lot on your right.read more
In Short
Opt for a table on the tree-shaded outdoor patio at this Gulf Coast beer bar and seafood dive (the inside gets smoky). The "no kids allowed" policy is strictly enforced, so expect a lively atmosphere most sunny…read more

Relaxing!: Great food, relaxing atmosphere, and hard working wait staff.read more
: I've lived in the Bayshore area for 53 years. This restaurant is the absolute BEST SEAFOOD on the Gulf Coast. Freshest food I've ever had here. True that it is a no frills kinda place but if your looking for the absolute best food in…read more
GRILLED OYSTERS GILHOOLEY: Great oysters. They were very big. Cooked just right. Service was slow, but it is a "kick-back" place. Don't go if you are in a hurry. Drink a cold beverage of your choice, and enjoy the laid back atmosphere .read more
Granny Red
Fabulous!: My husband and I have made Gilhooley's our Friday night regular. We have sampled several different items from the menu and have not been disappointed! Of course we KILL the oysters and drink the cold beer! We usually sit at the same table…read more
