    Everyone in my group of six enjoyed their food. The flavor on the BBQ shrimp was fantastic. Crawfish bisque excellent. Shrimp Creole good. Portions were a bit smaller than other places, but tasty.

    Food is worth about 1/4 of what they charge, if that. Don't waste your money.

    I think reviews might be drunken idiots. Took care of a party of 18 in just over an hour. Everything our group ordered got favorable reviews particularly Jambalaya and beans and rice.

    Well after sitting down we were real excited for red beans and rice. But after checking in and reading all the horrible comments and being told a 30 min wait we ran out and came to magnolia grill.

    Use the bathroom someplace before you go. Ewww. And the food was ok. Had the catfish and shrimp with Mac and cheese. Is was nothing to go cry home about. They also dim the lights to hide the grime.
