I've been to Cajun Greek several times now and every dish I try has been amazing! One of my favorites are the fried blue crab claws, absolutely delicious! I had them with some french fries and couldn't believe how good they were, crispy liked they are fried but none of the grease. Great atmosphere too, after one trip the waitress... More

This really is a place that specializes in both Cajun and Greek dishes, both emphasizing local seafood. I'd note that the two styles of food are kept separate (no blackened lamb or souvlakia gumbo, for better or worse). The only big disappointment was the key lime pie, which was too sweet without any real key lime flavor.

We came to Galveston for our grand daughter's University of Texas Medical Branch graduation. I asked our hotel valet for seafood restaurant recommendations, and he gave high marks. It's a small, unassuming place in a small strip shopping area. There was a very appealing layout of plate suggestions, and a clarinet player with live music as we entered. The food... More

We always ask locals where they eat, and the Cajun Greek was recommended by many. Within these recommendations, they said stay away from the Greek side of the menu (not sure why). We ordered a variety of things. My family of 4, ordered a variety of things: 3 lbs of Crab that was a huge portion and good, gumbo, which... More

We had been there before the hurricane hit and wanted to go again. I remember it being somewhat better. The food was just average.... I was disappointed. I had the oysters, they were over cooked and bland. We tried a few dishes and appetizers and everything just tasted bland. The one thing that's was okay was the boudin balls. I... More

We were in Galveston for 5 days and this was the best place we ate. The food was well prepared and fresh. The service was fast and friendly. Most of the people were locals and were on first name terms with the wait staff. Their seafood is delivered fresh every day from the boats, nothing ever frozen. Really was the... More

Wonderful place to eat seafood. Lots of variety. Service was great. The only thing is that it took awhile for us to get our food. As long as your not in a hurry. It is worth the wait. Bathrooms are clean.

We ate the Tuesday Special, Mac and cheese with crawfish, sausage, Gouda etc. I'm not a Mac and cheese fan, but I was blown away. It was wonderful. I'm going back to get the Thurs Special

My parents, sister and I found this year's ago on one of our many trips back to mom's hometown. We had all been arguing over where to eat when dad asked if we had ever been there. We had not. Needless to say we were that day! Best decision ever! Every time we go to Galveston you will catch us... More
