I love this place! Everything I have eaten there has been awesome! The shrimp cakes were the best. I've also had the hamburger steak and the shrimp platter, both were cooked to perfection! All the sides are fresh and taste great!

Best Treasure on the island. Great Food! Great People! Very Good Price! Don't go to Moody Gardens without eating here first. Don't leave the island without finding this Treasure!

We left Moody Gardens and just decided to stop in for lunch. You order at the counter then they bring your food to the table. Extremely nice work staff and the food is great! We were pleasantly surprised to see the quality and size of our lunch. Affordable for the area and a good variety of typical American cuisine. Hot... More

Not a sit down and order place, you order and pay at the counter, food is cooked to order and delivered. The food was excellent, everyone was pleased. We would've given the restaurant a higher rating if they had a beer and wine license.

If you need delivery in Galveston you're pretty much limited to sandwich, pizza, or Italian. Jungle cafe has more choices for downright good dinner food.

Lots of choices on menu I chose the gumbo and it was OK. Both of us had a side, which was good, but small portions for the price. Walked from Moody Gardens

Noticed this place on the way to Moody Gardens and decided to give it a try. Hamburgers were excellent- ground beef was fresh and tasty and other toppings were fresh and plentiful. Tried the Burger Gone Wild and Patty Melt. Excellent burgers and very filling. Also had a side salad which was very fresh. Owner, Brett, was also head chef... More

Went here for lunch. We both had the patty melt . It had a little too much mayonnaise on it. Otherwise was good and plan to go again and say light on the mayonnaise.
