Large portions. Very delicious. Waitress was friendly as was the hostess. Only ate breakfast there but would definitely go back. We had a hard time finding good breakfast until we went there.

Ate there our last morning in Galveston. Good breakfast & good service. Our friend had a bloody mary & it was excellent. My only complaint would be the price of morning beverages; amost $3 each for coffee & orange juice is outrageous - even on the seawall.

We stopped at the Gumbo Diner located right on the seawall as we headed into town for vacation. They told me it is associated with the Gumbo Bar (which has great reviews out here). They essentially have the same menu just a new location and the diner serves breakfast. I got gumbo, which was outstanding. Huge portion! My husband got a poboy with a fabulous Tabasco mayo. We were impressed with this new joint (opened March 2013). Oh yeah, super friendly service too. Wish I had time to go back and test out the breakfast. It looked yummy!

A true diner, but with a clean contemporary decor. Well staffed, and everyone was friendly and attentive. We came in on a whim for breakfast; definitely glad we did. Traditional breakfast menu, with everything priced under $10. Everything we had was fantastic. My country fried steak (with eggs) was plate-sized and delicious. Pancakes were fluffy and tasty. We'll be back for dinner!

Usually it is not a good idea to expect much from the restaurants directly on Seawall in Galveston....too many tourists, too busy and not a lot of motivation for the restaurants to do a lot more to make you a long term fan - after all- tourists come and go......BUT NOT HERE! This little place (tiny but great!) serves wonderful food at fair prices. The gumbo is truly delicious, Greek salads are huge, the iced shrimp is perfect for a hot summer day and the beignets are the most wonderful dessert on the island......and cheap! We will be back!
