“Yummy gumbo”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

We ate here after hearing about their gumbo, and it's as good as we heard. Just the right amount of spice and great flavor. There's plenty of shrimp and other goodies.
We also tried the fried pickles which were really good. The Greek salad was sufficient for a dinner all by itself.
Eat on the sidewalk patio if the weather allows. Enjoy a great lunch or dinner for a reasonable cost when in Galveston, and check out the Strand while down there.

“Good gumbo”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Off of the tourist main spot with good seafood plates. The gumbo is very good with large portion for the price. The char-grilled oyster is also a must try. Interior is warm with friendly service from wait-staffs. Recommended.

“Nice sidewalk patio”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went there with friends while we were riding our bicycles. It has a nice sidewalk patio so we could watch our bikes. The service was great. The gumbo had way too much okra and not enough sea food. However, the bbq'd oysters were fabulous! It is a wonderful lunch place.

“Great for a casual meal.”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you like gumbo they make it right there in electric kettles on the bar. So, you can add or omit anything you like. There is also a plethora of other stuff like sandwiches and great shucked oysters in season.
