Every trip we've taken to Galveston includes a visit to this place. It has some of the best burgers and an awesome outdoor seating area.

Great place in the ocean breeze. Freshly made burgers and great grilled cheese. Love the curly fries! One of our favorite haunts and is convenient to the west side of the island. Happy campers

This is one of the few places out near the west side of the island. All of the burgers I have tried have been excellent. They have a nice deck to eat on so you can look out over the ocean. Prices are quite reasonable as well.

This is a great place for a beach lunch. Not fussy and with no dress code, you can go there right from the beach, sand and all and have a frosty beer or root beer. Their hamburgers are thick and juicy and they have big fat hot dogs with German Kraut and dark mustard which are great. The potato salad... More

Michaels is a great little burger place west of the busy sea wall with a view of the Gulf. The patio is breezy and comfortable or plenty of cool AC on the inside. The hamburgers are meaty, veggies are fresh, all on top a toasted bun. The fries and onion rings were hot and crisp with adequate portions. Friendly staff,... More

We have been going to Cafe Michael Burger since we discovered them in 2009. A must stop anytime we are in Galveston! The absolute best burgers you will ever eat, staff is always great and sea breeze ever present.
