We have eaten here at least a half dozen times when vacationing in Galveston. We have taken several family members here when they travel with us and all have enjoyed the food. This morning we just stopped in for beignets and coffee and as always...More

Got decent reviews, but we were disappointed. Fish okay, husband sick the next morning, Fried shrimp tasteless, asked for fries well done, they were barely cooked and the junior burger was just okay.More

I had did research on this spot, I was looking for a spot to get some creole food. I ordered the crawfish etouffee and of course had to get some beignets to go. Both were very good.

Someone told us about the beignets here, so we came for a mid-afternoon snack (we'd already had lunch). Well, we came back the next day for breakfast, but that was our last day in town. Loved the beignets! Small, coffeeshop atmosphere, nothing fancy ….. but...More

I ordered the oyster platter. My wife ordered the shrimp platter. My wife said the shrimp looked and tasted old. The oysters tasted all right going down but came right back up. Neither one of us ate the fries. They looked disgusting and were limp....More

Hubby ordered the Seafood Gumbo and enjoyed it. There are two sizes (Lil Daddy and Big Daddy); he ordered the smaller one which seemed a little spendy because we weren't sure what to expect (i.e. are we paying $11 for a cup-of-soup size?). Not to...More

We ate at the gumbo diner during mother's day weekend 2018. Our breakfast and service was great. We just had a traditional breakfast (bacon, eggs, grits etc). This is not a fancy place and I appreciate that. Great food and customer service
