The location and decor are inviting. Waiter was friendly. The gumbo was a disappointment - no nuance in the flavor. Mussels were tough but marinara sauce was good.

Gumbo Bar is the best place in Galveston to get genuine Cajun gumbo. Many area restaurants offer factory made gumbo but Gumbo Bar makes their's on site while you wait. Their food is very good and the prices are very fair. Po-Boy's are also good. We've been eating at Gumbo Bar for several years and the quality of their food... More

The staff was attentive and friendly. They care that you have a good dining experience. It felt like a hometown spot . There was a warm atmosphere to the dining area.

Tried chicken & sausage gumbo for lunch. Little bowls are generous & a lot of gumbo. Food was ok but was really disappointed that it wasn't better. Expected better gumbo since it was a gumbo restaurant. I wouldn't recommend it.

I live on the island and have been here many times. We went last night and was very disappointing and shocked at some of the things we noticed. 1. It's biker weekend, so this may be why they had about triple the amount of staff than what they actually needed. There were approximately 5 tables with customers indoors, with at... More

We drive down from The Woodlands on a regular basis just to eat here. Everything is is fresh and the gumbo is to die for. Extremely friendly waitstaff serving you. Large selection of craft beers available.

I have been to the League City location a few times and when I found out that there was one in Galveston, I made sure I brought my friends and family to experience it with me.

Ok first of all the staff welcomed us like we were regulars. Then we were spoiled by bartender that suggested a great local beer. And then the beat of all the gumbo is made to order. Yes made to order so they make it right in front of you per your choices in your own pot. Oh I could eat... More
