Stopped here after a day on the beach and exploring Galveston. Great service and really good food. Serve many breakfast items all day and excellent beignets.

We stopped by on a whim while in Galveston. The exterior decor is nicely done, but inside it’s clear this place was once a Waffle House. They did a nice job of updating it with typical hipster decor, but it still feels like a homey diner. The waitresses are very nice and parking behind the nearby motel is plentiful.

There’s lots on the menu but we decided on shrimp poboys since it was lunchtime. The food came quickly and the sandwiches were HUGE. The shrimp were gigantic and nicely spiced with Tabasco. Pickles lettuce and a smattering of mayo made for a light but filling sandwich. Props for the soft French roll which made everything easy to digest.

I’d definitely recommend stopping by Gumbo Diner.

Thank Jay A

They have the best shrimp and grits. It was fabulous. The staff is very good, and the food was out quick. I go back next time I am there.

Small, busy, and great food. We found something for everyone. The small gumbo was very large. Wait staff very pleasant.
