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

Thank you so much for the great review and feedback. We're so glad you stopped in and tried some of our award-winning gumbo! We agree that including some garlic bread is the way to go! Having not seen your order, it's hard to address your comment about the seafood in your gumbo but you should definitely know you ordered the... More

We really enjoyed our time at 'little daddy's'. We wanted someplace unique in Galveston and my wife found this place. It was very good with a pleasant atmosphere, the art work being something my wife was fond of. Our sweet potato fries were a little undercooked, but other than that our food was great, and staff corrected our problem with... More

Went here with some hesitation after some poor gumbo, both seafood and chicken/sausage at the Gumbo Bar on the sea wall. What a great surprise? Ordered the restaurant week special which included salad, entree, and desert. Greek salad was good; a bit overdressed, but still enjoyable with fresh ingredients. Three of us had the seafood gumbo, and all were pleased.... More

Come here whenever we have the urge for a hot bowl of goodness. The seafood gumbo is always hot and good. My wife loves the Cioppino and warm garlic bread. They even have a decent hamburger although fries don't come with it. If you like bread pudding, this is one of the best on the island. Service is always great... More

I happen to be of Cajun heritage. Grew up stirring roux on the stove while standing on a chair. This is the real thing! I had the small bowl of seafood gumbo, which was more than plenty I can assure you it was just about the best gumbo I have ever had in a restaurant!

Our first visit was great, gumbo was flavorful and good. This visit not so much, it lacked flavor, the shrimp were good though. Next time I will get the platter instead of gumbo. Platters are pretty big, large portions, alot of fries. Waiter and staff were very friendly, food was prepared fast. Would visit again but skip the gumbo.

We went to Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar with family who raved about the seafood gumbo. We were cold, hungry and ready for some good food. The gumbo was not my favorite. The bowls are huge. My husband and I split a large order and we both had gumbo leftover. We don't like very spicy gumbo but this had no flavor.... More
