We'd been travelling for a few days and couldn't face one more chain restaurant menu (fries, battered shrimp, pasta, hamburger...) We went online looking for something different and we found it! It looks a bit sketchy from the street because the streetlights are dim and...More

Went by today, and it was totally closed down and up for lease. No idea why, though venue was a little out of the way. Places come, places go.

We have tried to eat at this restaurant the last 3 times we were in Galveston but it is only open Thursday Friday and Saturday evenings. It is off the Strand in a scary part of town. The building right next door is a disaster...More

The Schnitzel is absolutely amazing! Add the lemon and the mustard and you can't go wrong. They sometimes have large crowds and will run out of the favorites so give some other choices a run! The Farmer's Pork Chop was also a wonderful treat. The...More

I loved this place! It reminded me so much of the small German restaurants I visited in Germany. They served an excellent $5/glass red wine and the wiener schnitzel was totally authentic!

The Courtyard Café in Galveston features Czech, German and Hungarian-influenced cuisines. It's nestled in an unassuming concrete building set far enough back from Market Street to feel less like a Strand tributary and more like an Eastern European alleyway.
