If you like off-beat and funky, Galveston is the place for you. If you love good food served with a funky vibe, the Gypsy Joynt is the place for you. It’s not surprising to learn that the Gypsy Joynt got its start in Austin. It’s still one of the best-kept secrets in Galveston.
Located off the Strand in downtown Galveston, this jewel is tucked away a little further down Market Street than most people go. And this is okay with us locals because we like not having to wait for hours to get our food!
The great folks are run a wonderful restaurant and really give back to the people of Galveston. They also source their seafood locally which is very cool.
Speaking of seafood, my favorite dish is the Oscar Ocean. This sandwich has a homemade bun, pesto, balsamic vinegar dressing, veggies, and grilled fish. the menu consists of a mix of traditional foods like chicken strips and mac and cheese along with crazy combinations of seafood and veggies. The pizzas are the things dreams are made of- if you dream about food, which I do. The deserts are AMAZING!
We love this spot!
