The west side location has a breakfast buffet. However they make your eggs, omelets and/or pancakes fresh for you when you purchase buffet. Tasted good.

They were not busy at least for people in the place but we waited 5-7 minutes to order and waited for at least 30 minutes for the food to arrive. Southern burger was good but the wait was inexcusable, we reminded them we were their twice, they were polite but we were hungry & it was not busy

I chose this restaurant to go to with my family because of the name and menu choices. It sounded really interesting. When we got there to order, we were told they don't have a children's menu at that location and we have a 2 1/2 year old son. They ended up fixing him a grilled cheese sandwich for $4!! I... More

We stayed at the Inn on the Waterpark this weekend and found out about this place from the menu in the room. Saturday night, after our all day fishing expedition, all restaurants seems to have lines out the door. We remembered the Jungle Cafe. No doubt, this place is simple...nothing fancy about the atmosphere or the look of the restaurant.... More

This was our first visit plus it was Super Bowl Sunday with rain and fog. We were hoping for more and maybe it was that we were there early. There were like 5-7 take out orders being taken while we were the only ones eating. I had shrimp Po boy which to me tasted like over fried shrimp. The fries... More

I absolutely love the chili spaghetti. The Jungle's chili is the best in galveston. Will continue to be a repeat guest when I am in Galveston.

I had a jungle salad at this restaurant and thought it was very good. The people that worked was very helpful and friendly. The price was not bad and I would recommend this place to anyone staying at the Inn at the Waterpark and Moody Gardens.

You can eat inside or on the... More

While the food was unimpressive, it was not awful. It was edible. The dinner was merely ok. The breakfast buffet was tasty and the option to custom prepare was nice. However, the set out buffet choices were soggy, or greasy, or cold...

So this is a little hole in the wall sort of place that has a pretty eclectic menu to choose from. You place your order at the counter and they bring your food too you. There is not much of an atmosphere and they do not serve alcohol (at least not that I noticed) but they do have outside seating.... More
