The staff never heard this motto once published in National Lampoon(the once popular humor magazine) because even the Little Daddy small bowl is more than we could finish. My wife and I ducked in on a rainy afternoon for a late lunch. We ordered a 1/2 do oysters for me which were small, somewhat mangled, but really fresh and flavorful.... More

We live in Houston but, at least once a month, we travel the 60 miles to Galveston Island just to have a bowl of gumbo at this restaurant. It is the best I've ever had and the salads are excellent as well. If you don't like seafood, the chicken and sausage gumbo will do just fine. But, if you like... More

My husband and I thought we should try gumbo. He had the seafood and I had the chicken and sausage. The waitress was fantastic and divided them both up into individual servings so we could each try both. We both preferred the chicken and sausage. The servings were huge and I could not finish either bowl. I had to save... More

My family of four made our way up the Bluewater Highway and into Galveston this past Saturday. Invariably it seems, the seawall is our dining destination. Today, however, Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar enticed us and we changed course. Post Office Street is a jewel. Art galleries, shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and palm trees line its peaceful sidewalks. The Gumbo Bar... More

If you haven't checked out the Gumbo Bar in DT Galveston, do soon. Being from Chicago, I don't have access to this type of cuisine often. I visit the Gumbo Bar to get my fix. They have the absolute best cioppino EVER. You can even have the marvelous chef behind the counter customize the level of spice. I have had... More

Frist let me tell you the staff was friendly and the service was good, unfortunately the food was lacking. I ordered the Char-grill Oysters and had so much cheese and garlic on them that it was overwhelming. My husband ordered the "Soon to be Famous " (not) Shrimp and Crawfish Tail Poor Boy. There was barely any shrimp or crawfish... More

During a brief visit to Galveston, I was looking for a unique lunch option. Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar was the perfect choice. It offers a great atmosphere and tasty food. I also enjoyed my conversation with my waiter, Benjamin. He really made me feel welcome. I'm no expert on gumbo, but it was hot and tasty. A previous reviewer suggested... More
