“Fantastic! Really.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

It is a non-descript restaurant tucked away on 61st but after a long week of huge eating disappointments in Galveston, this little place redeemed our view of food on the island. The Greek dinner salad was a surprise of freshness and oh-so savory/summery Greek dressing. The crawfish was spicy, steaming and wonderful. As were the fresh oysters on the half shell.The manager brought us a little taste of heaven with the cucumber/yogurt concoction with pita bread, which relieved our tongues from the burn of the extra-spicy crawfish.

The fried oysters were so juicy, tender and fried to perfection with the fresh red snapper being the crowning glory served with cajun sauce which reminds me of shrimp etoufee. I am glad I asked for the sauce on the side because it would have killed the delicate taste of the snapper had it been smothered in it.

If you are dining alone or with a party of two or three, ask to sit at the bar.

I can officially proclaim that this is my new favorite Galveston restaurant. And I've been to most all of 'em!

“Some of the best crawfish we've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Crawfish is amazing! Staff is very polite and attentive. The food in general is some of the best on the island. We eat here every time we visit, and I would strongly advise everyone else do the same; you'll be very glad you did!

“don't ask...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

We ended up here after a recommendation from a local. We chose this place after checking the reviews on Yelp for the three places that she had recommended.
I shudder to think how bad the other two were by comparison of the quality of the reviews!
It's a small, nondescript, single story, brick building, occupied by a couple of small business. The restaurant is on one end.
We were told that everything was fresh. But, it certainly didn't present that way. Nothing was memorable. If the calamari and shrimp were fresh, then they just were not that good. I have had better frozen! Rubbery and tasteless calamari. Too much bland breading on the shrimp.
Even the Greek salad didn't cut it.
The "local fresh" fish specials were $21 and $25 for lunch!!!
The absolute only redeeming quality about this place was our server. If I remember correctly her name was Anna. Other than that nothing good to say.
The food didn't kill us. But it definitely was not the fresh coastal seafood meal that we were looking for.
Hell, Red Lobster would have been better! lol

“Great fried oysters & Greek salad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Every time we come to Galveston we have lunch at Cajun-Greek. I always have the fried oysters and Greek salad (a sub for both sides).
