Fish Du Jour is The Best

We waited in a short line but it was certainly worth the wait! Everything we ordered was on point! From the Pasta with shrimp to the Fish Du Jour (Fresh Mahi Mahi with mango pico) all of our dishes were fresh and delicious. Thanks!

Appetizer = Brie and Chutney Far East Salad Mosquito Burger with Bleu Cheese Coffee The food was amazing. The amount of tuna steak in the salad left me very satisfied. The burger was perfect. Great coffee at a self-serve location. Very relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. I visited at 1:30 on a Saturday. I recommend eating here at another time of the... More

Arrived at 11:20 to beat the crowd, which we did but still waited 35-45 minutes for a turkey divinity that was short on bacon n grilled apples and a shrimp slammer that was short on shrimp. Bread was great, sandwiches were good but not great like usual. Lemonade cake was a hit, snickerdoodle was dry n crumbly.

We were a party of 13 and found a great spot outside before departing on our cruise. A little hot, but there are several fans. The portions were really good! The flavor amazing!! The personnel were really REALLY good and constantly checking if everything was OK.

My family and I went for lunch before we checked into our beach house. It has a pretty good rating so we figured, why not? I've never been to a cafeteria style restaurant before, so that was different. There were no tables inside, so we sat outside with all of the begging birds (ha). We were fine with that though....

Today it was quite awful: -side salad was spinach with 2 cherry tomatoes and a couple of wisps of cheese -Veggie burger was very mushy and overlooked -staff were disinterested and remote This was such a change from our prior visits we think there...

Trying to find a place to eat dinner on Saturday evening in Galveston on the Seawall is like waiting in line to ride the Black Hole at Schlitterbahn~~~long long long lines and crowds of people! We veered off onto 14th Street and, with fortune smiling on us, saw Mosquito Cafe and pulled right in. Cafeteria style, you order your food... More

We went on the 4th of July and it was not too crowded. Really cool place in an old house. It is great for lunch. I had the Napa Salad and it was so good. I loved it. Very cool vibe. I recommend this place.
