Renowned Galveston Island chef Stephen Griffith - the chef that made 901 sing - has now found a new home at The Porch Cafe.

The shiny, bright space is located in Beachtown, that crisp new upscale development on the Island's East End, steps from East Beach. The light and airy Porch features a wonderful wraparound deck outside, perfect for Sunday brunch or a summer weekend meal, complete with dazzling Gulf view.

An array of tantalizing "small plates" are perfect for smaller appetites, or for those who'd like to sample a number of different items. Four standouts include the boudin-stuffed jalapeno with jicama and crawfish slaw; the seafood au gratin with tender chunks of lump crab, shrimp, and cucumber pico de gallo; the Wagyu beef medallion with chorizo bechamel and poached egg; and the watermelon with olive relish and grilled shrimp.

Entrees include a barbecue shrimp enchilada with Wagyu beef steak and cotija cheese; pan-roasted grouper with butter bean hummus, corn relish, and chili vinaigrette; and corn-crusted red snapper with ranchero sauce.

Casual atmosphere that's perfect for families. Beer and wine available.
