The food was delicious! This was a quiet, small, quaint restaurant that was a delight! It provided the best food we have had so far on this trip and the prices were extremely reasonable.

We ate here while down on the Strand. The sandwich we got was very good. The bread was fresh, and when we asked for an extra plate to share, they prepared it that way for us. Good fries. Good service. Good place.

Awesome find in Galveston! The food had a superb flavor and extremely fresh. I had the fish tacos and they were so good. The honey horseradish is to die for. Staff was extremely nice! We dined on the porch and it was a lovely atmosphere....More

Great Seafood at a reasonable price. Both this location and the original are a favorite of locals. The downtown restaurant has table service and a much bigger menu with lots of broiled seafood, salads and sandwiches. This is always my favorite place to eat before...More

Little hidden gem with tasty fare. Would have give it 5 stars but my shrimp and sausage gumbo could have used more shrimp...although the taste was amazing. And the dressing was a little heavy on the shrimp salad. Crayfish poboy was perfectly cooked and seasoned....More
