That's a pretty accurate description of a decent restaurant on the Seawall in Galveston. You wait in a long line to order at the counter and find a table (if you're lucky), they'll buzz you when yours is ready. You will grab your food and...More

Stop by for a late lunch, I’ve had the burgers before and open condiment bar just like fudeuckers, which was good. Decided to try the seafood, the wait was so long, over 30 min, I had expected great and fresh food at this point. Finally...More

We had been here years ago but it has really grown. Still a fun place to have lunch & spend an afternoon by the beach. If you don't have kids, bypass the crowds & go straight to the Tiki bar!

Long long lines seemed to be managed well and as there was a big party of family, they helped us get tables and put them together. Everyone was enjoying their meals until a very large roach ran across the table and later up the wall....More

ML, I am sorry for the late response to your question. We did make the Chicken & Sausage Gumbo as well as the Roux in house. However, since the roux was produced inconsistently, we decided to remove the Gumbo from the menu... More
