So sorry my sweet Cajun Queen wife and my late Louisiana bayou, born and raised mother-in-law (who both made the best gumbo ever until we discovered this place). Gumbo so full of seafood that the spoon will almost stand up in your bowl. No excessive spices, just rich, dark-roux based, heavenly nectar with just the right amount of rice. The... More

I read reviews on this place before we went, but it just didn't meet our expectations. I ordered the charbroiled oysters which were very tasty, also ordered "The Big Easy" bbq shrimp. I was totally disappointed, didn't even remotely taste like the ones in NOLA. I ordered the Italian Cream cake for dessert I don't know what recipe book they... More

Went for dinner. Unfortunately we were the only two in the restaurant apart from the staff due to the weather outside! The gumbo is awesome and they will pretty much make it how you want it. Excellent

My son-in-law and I went here today to sample some of their seafood. My etoufee was just loaded in every bite with baby shrimp. It had more shrimp in it than any etoufee I've ever had. It was very good if just a little tame. The gumbo was very dark and delicious. The gumbo portion was huge. We didn't ask... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch on Thursday,09/04/14. We ordered the kettle shrimp and the chicken, sausage, and shrimp gumbo. A side note, order the small gumbo because the large is enough for two! Both entrees were delicious. The kettle shrimp came with garlic cheese bread, but we ordered an additional serving of garlic cheese bread for... More

I was in Galveston in late July celebrating my father's 91st birthday with 4 family members. My niece suggested that we go to the gumbo bar at the end of our 3 day stay. I was skeptical because our family makes very good gumbo and I don't generally eat gumbo in restaurants. However I was very surprised by the Gumbo... More

I had fish and my husband had a fish and shrimp sandwich for lunch. Portions were huge, service and food were good and the restaurant itself is pretty new and nice. They also have a good selection of beers

Nice place, good service. Kettles were flavor filled. Gumbo was rich and decadent. Good portion size. Little daddy sizes will be adult meal for most. BBQ shrimp were a little overcooked. More toast points would have been nice. A little pricey. A more affordable lunch menu would help.

We found Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar here on Tripadvisor. I have to say, it is definitely one of the best food/restaurants in Galveston!! Neat atmosphere, the staff and owner are extremely friendly which greatly adds to the dining experience!! Our waitress did an excellence job! We started off with the blue cheese wedge salads,which were excellent. 2 of my kids... More

My family visits Galveston towards the end of summer each year. Three years ago we discovered The Gumbo Bar on Postoffice St. Now it is the first place we drive to when we arrive in town AND the last place we visit before we leave....and this week add an extra visit mid week! Yep - that's three visits in 6... More
