Enjoying more than two decades as The Strand's premier party spot for tropical fare and live music.. In Short In the heart of Galveston's historic Strand District, this legendary Jamaican-themed cafe continues to lure in locals and tourists alike. Though the restaurant shines brightest for big island events like Mardi Gras and the summer beach season, a year-round concert calendar of reggae and blues music keeps the party going. Bright tropical murals and polished wood floors augment the menu of salads, burgers, zesty sandwiches, stuffed potatoes and pizzas. Opt for a patio table for prime people-watching.
