We brought my parents here while we are in family vacation together. My parents never had gumbo or cajun food before, so we thought this would be a nice experience. The seafood here are fresh and juice, but the flavors are not very impressive. I can make better at home given good resource of seafood.

OMG-This was my first time having "GUMBO" and it was delicious!!! The tilapia fish melted in my mouth and the cole slaw was homemade. The service was outstanding and they even have an outside patio to bring your pet along!

We were here (two times) one year ago and have been missing our Gumbo and Bread Pudding. We talk about it all the time and recommend this place to everyone in East TX. Wish we lived closer and could eat here weekly. We were gone 12 months, sat at the bar and Aaron says "I remember you". Where else does... More

The staff made us feel we were at home instead of an unfamiliar restaurant. We wanted to sample the Étouffée before ordering a bowl to make sure. They were quite accommodating. The chef came to our table a couple times to make sure everything was perfect. The the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizers was amazing. We settled on the gumbo. It... More

We went on a Sunday night and it was pretty quiet. We started with a Cajun pistolette stuffed with crawfish étouffée. **I'd highly recommend ordering just the étouffée. It was amazing. We also ordered a Po' Boy (oyster & shrimp). It was good....the coleslaw was really tasty. We also shared the Mumbo Gumbo--it is pretty big. Was so yummy! My... More

Great food and great service. We tried a couple of gumbo dishes and they were both delicious. My son had never tried an oyster before so the wait staff went out of their way and prepared him one on the house so he could try one. The bread pudding is wonderful. Highly recommend this place and I will most definitely... More

On our last night in Galveston, we wanted (of course) good seafood, funky Galveston surroundings and good service. We got all three at Little Daddy's Gumbo bar. Would go again in a minute!

My son wasn't feeling too good so we decided to order gumbo to go. We enjoyed the mumbo gumbo very much! It just had the right spice to it and it was filling for sure. Also ordered the seafood platter, it was nothing special for me but my husband liked it.

It was late 9pm and my family wanted seafood. I did a google search and the restaurants that were open were the same we could visit in our home city. We came across Little Daddy's Gumbo, called and they were open until 10pm. Greeted at the door with a welcoming smile. The food was delicious and fresh we will return!

The gumbo varies by chef as we have seen. The same people own several restaurants in Galveston with different cuisines. This one is downtown and parking can be difficult. But the atmosphere is more relaxing than on Seawall. They have no beignets though.
