Sat at the bar on a busy Saturday without reservation. Staff were attentive and friendly. Excellent seafood gumbo and Texas Redfish Pontchartrain. Prices reflect local fresh quality of seafood and not unreasonable.

Our server was GREAT! However, our food was rather bland. The Caesar salad dressing had zero flavor. My husbands steak wasn't anything to brag about - but the gumbo was great! The atmosphere is nice.

We had great service and incredible food! There were 3 of us and everyone had an outstanding meal. The ambience is quiet and subdued - perfect for a relaxing lunch.

This is a great atmosphere for people that want to sit and drink a little and talk about what happened in the day. Should probably make a reservation for this café. The hostess waitress and manager were very friendly and helpful. Bone in ribeye was excellent but overpriced. However it was good enough I will come again especially when friends... More

Stopped in for lunch (a little pricey) and well worth it. I had the lobster and shrimp taco, with corn crab chowder. Very filling and a little rich and sooooooo worth it. My service was great, the atmosphere was very nice and everyone was very friendly. Will definitely go back.

We dined here with friends in January and chose this restaurant because we had not tried it yet. We made a reservation for 5:30 and of course it was practically empty, even though it was Galveston's restaurant week. Our server was very slow and inattentive. The food all came out way too quickly and we were done in no time... More
