We had excellent French toast with specialty bacon in a lovely outdoor setting for breakfast. There was also a large selection of other breakfast items to choose from. The wait staff were professional and courteous.. More tables were inside the building (although not very many). We plan to return to this restaurant soon as we were very impressed.

Not a lot of selection. If ordering salad, be prepared to use their dressing. I had a cheesburger with side salad. No blue cheese dressing, but did have ranch. Okay burger, but many better on the island. Spouse had rueben and felt the same way about her sandwich. Little pricey.

We had lunch here. Many sandwich choices. I had shrimp BLT that was a little hard to eat but very good. My family had a Reuben, BBQ pork sandwich and a chicken salad sandwich. The apple pecan salad was very tasty.

It's awesome that they have an outside patio that allows dogs, but it has a lot of flies. And the food was just okay. Local beer on tap was great!

Go a little out of the way to Mosquito. This place has a great local atmosphere and fine fresh options that would suit almost anyone. I went for lunch at around 2pm so maybe I was fortunate to be on an off-peak time, because it was still pretty busy then. I don't know about brunch crowds but I have to... More

We were here for breakfast. Not a huge menu but enough choices for us. The portions were very large, tasted great and were reasonably prices. The service was super friendly. The indoor seating felt a little tight. Outdoor seating would be great as long as the weather is OK. Like elsewhere on the island, parking is on the street so... More

Perfect end to a day of sight seeing and boat tours around Galveston. We did not want ultra-fancy, but we obviously wanted good food, and this really fit the bill. Very good food at reasonable prices. The mac and cheese dish is delicious and enormous, and can be shared with the entire table.

Reasonably priced, never wait too long, away from the crowds, outdoor seating, huge portions, healthy, delicious, yummy desserts, local beer, family friendly. Hits all of the marks we need for a nice and easy dinner out with our 18 month old. This is our 3rd time here and will definitely be a staple in our visits to Galveston Island. And... More

I definitely recommend visiting the Mosquito. It's a pleasant atmosphere that reminds me a little of beach front properties in Florida with the pastel coloring and window shutters. They have two different areas with different atmospheres for seating. The indoor seating has a warm well lit feeling with browns and yellows as the color scheme. The patio seating area is... More

The Mosquito is a fixture in a historic neighborhood in-between downtown and the Seawall. Consistently great meals, especially the weekend brunches! Great staff and friendly folks!
