My son is a picky eater but is always good-to-go for breakfast food. I searched online for a place with good reviews and breakfast all day and lucked into finding Gumbo Diner on Trip Advisor, located just around the corner from our vacation rental. We were seated right away on a Friday night and were greeted by a smiling, helpful server. He made great recommendations and assured us the children's menu portions would not disappoint. Sure enough, the kids did not feel cheated at all and even though the breakfast choices did not appear to be on the kids menu, our server ensured my son got his pancakes and eggs. Kids were happy with their meals and my fish tacos and Sangria rocked. The child said his pancakes were the best he has ever had. Service was excellent the entire time. All of the plates we saw going out to other tables looked great and other customers seemed happy. Nice atmosphere and good food. We will be back when we return to Galveston next month!

Beignets are fantastic - bought a dozen to go earlier in the week and came in for sit down breakfast with the family this morning. Eggs, hashbrowns were delicious and our son loved the Belgian waffles. Sam was our waiter and he was fantastic... great way to start the day.

Stopped for beignets for breakfast. Came back for lunch - fried oysters! They were SO good! Large and wonderful flavor! Reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and atmosphere was warm and fun. We’ll be back!

We discovered Gumbo Diner last year for great gumbo. We came back for breakfast--great breakfast. This year we had breakfast there twice. Love it!
