This time when we were there, they were out of red wines and some liquors( no kettle one).They also did not have a lot of wait staff..Very slow...We also put in a request about a birthday and nothing was done...Might be awhile before going back...

My recent trip to M&M was wonderful. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Our waiter was very courteous and attentive. Taking time to take several photos of my family for me. The other staff members were also very friendly and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. Thank you again M&M, for a wonderful evening!

M & M Restaurant is a very good place for a Before the Show Dinner. We were a bit disappointed in some of what we ordered. The pork chop was overcooked and I don't recommend it. The fish was GREAT and the Oysters were very good. Has a good wine list and beer on tap. we will go back and try to order better next trip.

A must stop when in the Galveston area. Happy Hour is a worth the time. We went on a slow night middle of the week. Locals come and go, they seem to know where the bargains are. Our dinner was fine. One minor problem with the lobster bisque, was quickly dealt with by the waiter and owner. I must say the Snapper Diablo was the freshist that I have ever had. Will definelty make a return visit.

From the avocado pancake appetizers to the bread pudding dessert, and everything in-between, its all great! Kinda like a pub feeling inside. Dark wood with TVs over the bar. Not obtrusive at all, but a great way to keep an eye on the game and have a tasty meal. Not a tourist destination. It's all locals.

M&M is just a great local place - excellent Snapper diablo, excellent martinis, even a good steak. Acoustic music on weekends. We come down on weekends and it never disappoints. great atmosphere - you don't feel like you are in an open warehouse, which is your fate in some well-known Galveston places...

We love M&M and already have another visit scheduled.

This is the go to place before or after the theater at the grand when we come down from Houston........

This was my fifth visit, and we were seated quickly and served great.

However at the same time a huge party came in and "wham" we were forgotten after our appetizer order was put in. We ate the appetizer and after a long wait, decide to just leave and eat once we made it back to Houston.

Our server was nice, friendly and funny, however he was overwhelmed with a table of 20 or so people and just plain forgot about us. We were not angry or felt insulted at all, we know from our previous visits, that was not normal.

When we asked for the check, he was apologetic and even offered to have a different server take care of us, but by that time we were already planning our order at the restaurant we went to after our drive back to H-town.

Next month we already have plans to stop in before another Musical (Ragtime), so we will see them again soon....we highly recommend M&M.

The avocado pancakes are fantastic.

We have been to M&M 3 or 4 times and really like the quality of their food, the combinations of seafood dishes, the great appetizers and the nice salads. We LOVE the key lime tart for dessert.

Now--a criticism I must make--since it happened two times in a row. This time I ordered Diablo Snapper (which is topped with a crawfish sauce). Both the crawfish sauce and the snapper were over-salted--so much so that although it was very fresh fish--I left over half on my plate.
When we were here on a previous visit, the same thing happened to my Pecan-crusted snapper.
Just too much salt.

I might add that my husband--in my estimation--uses too much salt. And when he agreed with me on the over-salted dish, I knew I needed to report it.

This can, of course be corrected--but it shows a failure to have a delicate touch in the kitchen, where the chef is always checking for the taste of food that is being served. Hope this problem is corrected. I know some restaurants under-salt their food and you have to add a bit. It Is a delicate balance. But over-salting makes it impossible to enjoy!

We had a great meal last Friday with another couple who had not been to M & M before. They have traveled off and on to Galveston for thirty years--but this was a new place to them. They loved it. Three of us had red snapper dishes, the fourth had the pork chop dinner. All were loved. We had heard a lot about the avocado pancakes so we had one order to share . We each got one pancake and it was a great beginning. Vegetable sides are wonderful, fish is very well prepared. Music was good. Ambience was great. And the Creme Brulee had a real crunch to it--which is a sign of a great one!! We will definitely be back--and so will the other couple!

Thaddeus is a wonderful waiter. He's very attentive and we enjoyed talking to him about the food and the restaurant. It's a charming place and we intend to return. The food was delicious. Crab cake sandwich was superb. The gumbo was outstanding. The macaroni and cheese was all it's cracked up to be. The fried fish with red beans and rice was some of the best I've ever had.

Our bartender Lou started the evening out making me a tasty, cold fruity martini. The menu selection offers many different types of food. Our fried green tomato/crab appetizer had a melt in your mouth flavor. The chef deserves a special mention for his preparation of the fresh pecan crusted snapper and my husband's steak was cooked just as he ordered. The service was exceptional too. The entire dining experience was excellent and we cannot wait to make a return visit.

I visited with my wife for our anniversary and the food was awesome, I had the surf and turf and my wife had the tampico chicken. Both of which were amazing. The service was good, the waitress didn't impress because she didn't seem to know the menu in full or was maybe having an off night. The filet I had was very flavorful and had a great fresh off the grill taste to it. It was cooked to perfection and was tender and moist. The lobster tail was a good size and was really juicy and not dry at all. We had the bread pudding and it wasn't anything impressive or anything to write home about or to suggest to anyone.

I made a reservation for 9:00 PM on a Sunday and when I arrived at the restaurant I was told they were closed. If it was not for another 10+ customers that had done the same I would have been turned away even though I had a confirmed reservation. Food was ok but the service was poor even after we were allowed to be seated and was able to order food.

This is our second time dining at M&M. We love the food: seafood gumbo is terrific-maybe best in Galveston. Red snapper dishes are very special, perfectly cooked with interesting combos of sauces and shrimp or crab toppings. This time when we walked in at 7:30 the music was too loud for the size of the room. We managed to sit near the back. But the volume was still louder than it should be for dinner. The guitarist- singer was talented with a diverse repertoire . The last visit we made they had a soft jazz ensemble with an excellent female singer. Volume there was low enough that you could enjoy the music as background- not as the main attraction. We would be happy to have either band while dining-with appropriate volume.

We arrived about 7:30 on a Sunday night so keep that in mind. The Crab cakes were bland, fried green tomato were about 3/4 inch thick (prefer much thinner) good flavor. My friends had fried shrimp and oysters and were happy with them. The AC felt like it was 75 degrees, too warm for me. Our waiter was a hoot Jim if we liked him Mike if we didn't. I would try it again.

It was art walk night which made for a big crowd, but our waitress was distracted, wine spilled on the table and the blackened grouper was overly salted and the avocado sauce is overrated.Cajun spiced snapper was tasty and edge salad was outstanding, but a $125 bill with wine and tip was a little pricey.

We came to M&M for the first time--at the recommendation of a friend. We love the ambience-very New Orleans (warm, funky, good music playing, nice long bar). I had the M&M salad, my husband had the lobster bisque--both great. We tend to split entrees--and just pay the $3 charge for extra vegetables. For us, half a serving of meat or fish is perfect. The specially prepared red snapper with a nice sauce, two luscious shrimp on top was wonderful. Asparagus and scalloped potatoes were the veggies.

in some ways the "piece de resistance" was a key lime tart that we split--so rich, heavy and absolutely luscious!

We always eat at the same places when down in Galveston so choose M&M as something new. The antique bar was really lovely. I had the avocado pancakes which was completely different. I love crabmeat and avocado so worked for me. We also tried the campenchana but I have to say that Goode company still has everyone beat. This one was a little sweet for our taste.
Husband had the pork chops which were cooked nicely. The potato side was a little dry. We did get an extra side mac and cheese which made up for it. I had crab cakes. These were pretty much crab, little breading or filler. The wine list was fairly priced. We had a bottle of Ferrari.

There was an obnoxious little kid running around while we were eating. Definitely interfered with the noise level especially since we were only 1 of 3 or 4 tables for dinner.
