One of the best place on Galveston Island to get gumbo. I had the Prime Rib Gumbo it was truly very tasty. Great atmosphere and wait staff!! Enjoyed going to this place a couple times.

Gumbo Bar was a pleaser as usual! It was too hot for gumbo because I wanted to sit outside so I ordered the wedge salad and the waitress suggested a topping I picked grilled crawfish and it was great1 I also had raw oysters and their horseradish is especially good!!

My daughter and I eat at the Gumbo Bar every time we are in Galveston - just love the fresh, flavorful gumbo! It's a very dark roux, which I love. The garlic bread is also great. I can't comment on anything else because I cannot bring myself to order anything else. Service is always excellent. The atmosphere is small, quaint,... More

We visited at 2 PM on Labor Day weekend on the recommendation of my sister and her husband. It was very crowded and we waited about 25 minutes for a table for our party of 5. Not bad for a holiday weekend. Two members of the party ordered Shrimp Platters, one a Seafood Platter, one Gumbo and I ordered the... More

Pretty good food. There weren't any specials for fresh seafood options which seemed strange for a place in the Gulf but the gumbo was good.

My husband wanted to try this place after reading reviews. The potato salad tasted like a bowl of ranch dipped potatoes and was nauseating. The gumbo was terrible. If you're Cajun like me, and know what authentic gumbo tastes like, this is not the place for you. I honestly would have rather had McDonalds for lunch. This place is extremely... More

Service was friendly. place was not clean but not filthy, and the food wasn't that great. I had the etouffee, and it wasn't terrible, but is the worst I have personally ever had. It wasn't real hot when it came out which I prefer. The kids got the junior hamburgers, which were more bun than meat. I will say the... More

I am still thinking about this delicious gumbo several weeks after our trip! I love dark gumbo, and this is some of the very best I have ever eaten. We also had fried pickles, which were very good. Great, charming atmosphere and excellent service. We will stop here on every visit!

I'm generally pretty picky on my Gumbo and seafood but LDs took care of me well. I really look forward to going back!
