I ordered the Philly cheesesteak and seasoned fries. WOW...I think that was the best I've ever had. Fries were also great. I will return

Everytime I eat at ShyKatz Deli I am taken with another aspect of this little restaurant in a residential neighbourhood! They have decadent desserts and pastries, their burgers compete with the best burger joint on the Island (the Spot), they have tasty sweet potato fries, however, this time I want to mention their Ice Tea! Most of the time I... More

What a great find. My dearest friend Beverle (who also happens to be a "B.O.I." (born on the island), and a great cook and even better baker, took me to this adorable and delicious restaurant. We split a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries and a strawberry cake. Everything was cooked perfectly. Very fresh and home cooked. I have the menu... More

Wow, this place was packed! I can see why this is a "local" spot. What a neat atmosphere, homey and comfortable. Staff was friendly and the food had that "home cooked" taste. The service line was out the door so I expected a bit of a wait, to my surprise it moved quickly and there wasn't a long delay for... More

Either breakfast or lunch one the best restaurants on the island. You will find the locals eating here six days a week. One of our favorite places for lunch. You will not be disappointed

Get out of the hotel and eat local. Creative and tasty breakfast and lunch items in a casual little café.

My husband and I took a little Staycation and when to Galveston Island for a few days. One thing we wanted to do was try local restaurants; nothing chain or that we could get at home. Shykats was on our list and we are so glad we didn't miss it. The atmosphere is quaint and homey with eclectic furnishings. A... More

Definitely not for the early riser, a few times I've been here well after 7, the stated opening time, and the door was still locked. I've had breakfast here a number of times and it was decent, but nothing to write home about, and probably a few bucks more than I would expect for the same thing at IHOP or... More

The food, especially the baked goods, are really yummy at Shy Katz' Deli! I order the Nancy Special, named after a friend of mine! It is a grilled chicken breast, spinach and potatoes, usually fried sweet taters! Fair prices. I don't care much for the overtly Christian decor, however, the coffee makes up for it!
