Dining With Us Stays Delicious
Just in time for your holiday feasting pleasure, Executive Chef Robbin Murphy joins our family. We’re very proud to welcome him to Moody Gardens here on Galveston Bay. We extend a most cordial invitation to you and your family for our sparkling seasonal celebrations, and we especially hope you’ll join us for Chef Murphy’s lavish Thanksgiving buffet.
Culinary Inspiration at Your Service
We bid a fond farewell to Executive Chef Urs Schmid and wish him the best in retirement after 16 wonderful years. As we salute his sterling service, we applaud the arrival of Executive Chef Robbin Murphy and the 20 years of kitchen mastery that he brings to our resort. He has proudly served the finest hotels in New York City, Boca Raton, Denver, San Antonio, Austin and Houston. Chef Murphy’s culinary talents include preparing dishes with his special grilling and smoking techniques, and he’s deeply committed to working with our local fresh seafood and craft suppliers.
Thanksgiving Feasting by the Bay
Put away that baster and let us do the cooking this year while you relax and fill your plate with Chef Murphy’s bountiful offerings. Tender, roasted Tom Turkey stars in our elegant extravaganza, and he shares the banquet stage with an array of entrees including the freshest jumbo Gulf shrimp and divine prime rib. From creamy Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and giblet gravy to divinely decadent desserts, all your favorites grace our Thanksgiving buffet. Our beautiful ballroom is your backdrop for all this delicious dining from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m. on November 27.
Celebrations Through the Season
As long as you’re here for our Thanksgiving feast, stay awhile, and enjoy our seasonal fun. Indulge your shopping talents at our Home for the Holidays Gift Market right here at our spacious convention center. More than 150 unique vendors offer delightful home decor, hand-crafted jewelry, home-baked goodies and more on November 28 and 29. Spend an evening strolling through our fabulous Festival of Lights from November 15 through January 3, and take time out to spoil yourself with a Pamper Me Peppermint facial or Peace on Earth Swedish massage at our lovely spa.
This season, we invite you to celebrate with our family here at Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center on beautiful Galveston Bay. From our crystal pyramids to Chef Murphy’s delicious dishes, it all awaits your arrival. Give us a call, and book your reservations today. We look forward to making your holidays truly memorable this year.
