    Food was extremely bland and the service was horrible. The only good thing about this place was the really energetic Host outside. Don't let him fool you!

    This is a pretty hilarious place to sit on the patio & watch tourists make asses out of themselves

    Bad bad food. Overpriced. Nothing good about this place except location

    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.

    Service was decent, but the food was not impressive, especially for the price.

    Service was really good but the food was really bad. Nothing really had a taste to it and it was expensive. I will never be back here

    Red beans and rice would help Hornets win a gane

    Anthony S. · March 22, 2012
  • Trace D.

    Grab a tasty po boy to go, they're little slices of heaven. Plus, you can get a plateful of crawfish!

    I don't recommend the crawfish here...most of it was over cooked.

    Avoid! Totally crappy food, ignorant service. Don't let the bouncer outdoors fool you in.

    Food was not worth the price, they charged us more than listed. Service was very slow.

    Sydney the host is amazing! He'll be running the place before they know it. He works hard to give you a good experience

    $8 bloody Mary's??? Outrageous in my book and the mix was straight out of the bottle :(

    Michelle M. · November 21, 2012
  • Aislinn

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

    Aislinn · November 9, 2012
  • Jon J.

    NEVER GO HERE. We were starving and the menu looked good, so we went for it. Gumbo came out cold, service took forever, food was awful and actually made us sick, AND was overpriced. Seriously, avoid.

    Jon J. · October 22, 2012
  • Kevin H.

    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.

    Kevin H. · October 6, 2012
  • Brian B.

    I also liked the hosts spirit, my service was awesome. Interesting decor... Food was ok

    Brian B. · September 15, 2012
  • Ashley H.

    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.

    Ashley H. · September 15, 2012
  • Sarah G.

    Great place for breakfast! Cheap and yummy!

    This place has horrible service and they can't even make fried chicken right.

  • Jen L.

    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.

    Jen L. · July 8, 2012
  • Yolanda E.

    When I came late in 2010 it was awesome! Tried it today again and it was disappointing.

    The owners are funny as hell.

    Phantomluvr L. · April 27, 2012
  • Pomme G.

    Awful. Shells in the stuffed mushrooms, the rice is bland, they put shrimp in the crawfish, and they forced a hot sausage we didn't want.

    Pomme G. · April 16, 2012
  • Patty D.

    Great bloody Mary

    Patty D. · April 4, 2012
  • John L.

    Food was decent, but the portions were tiny and left us still hungry. Service was slow. Also, cockroaches.

    John L. · March 29, 2012
  • Chrissy P.

    Service is lacking, eggs were greasy and gross. Mimosas we good but worth eating at this place

    Chrissy P. · March 25, 2012
  • Jodi R.

    Not good! They ran out of bacon at 10:30am and then it mysteriously appeared 30 mins later? FAIL!!!

    Jodi R. · March 25, 2012
  • Trace D.

    Actually, disregard previous tip. Turns out the food smells better than it is - don't eat here!

    Trace D. · March 17, 2012
  • Margot C.

    Very very slow service. The fact that the surrounding places were busy and this place was slow should have clued me in..

    Margot C. · March 11, 2012
  • Spike W.

    Worst service ever,
