    Someone recommended me this place and the "Blackened Alligator"... Really good! Very tasty and spiced. I liked too the Crawfish. Crowded place with live music and dance floor.

    Get the crab or shrimp. The crawfish etufee & baked potato are amazing. The fried alligator is a must! Save room for dessert. The caramel cheese cake, bread pudding and pecan pie are great choices.

    Get a bowl of gumbo and a salad if you're budget - conscious. Otherwise try one of the combination platters. Arrive early to beat the dinner crowd.

    Chicken wings are so good. I could eat them every week for years. Hot, flavored, good size, juicy etc. This is how chicken wings should be done.

    Get here before heavy dinner rush. Great Blackened grilled chicken salad. Beer is cold. Good spot right after and outside convention center for quick food.

    This place is a little touristy but the food saved it. I enjoy a delicious bowl of Zydeco Gumbo rich in flavor and spiced just right.

    Dinner and dancing. A fun change of pace from the craziness of Bourbon Street. Food good; mixed drinks not too strong, however, even with extra shot...Go with beer or wine :(

    Skip the shrimp gumbo. It's incredibly fishy. If you like spicy, go for the Zydeco gumbo. If not, shrimp etouffe and the red beans and rice are safe bets and both are hearty and delish. MmmmmMmmmmmmm.

    The Ribeye was absolutely amazing! Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined Mulates would serve such an incredible steak! Absolute Win!

    Get the Zydeco Gumbo, very good. Also the Zydeco bread was interesting if you want to venture out for something different. Love the atmosphere.

    The food is great! The service-Not so much! Would have liked to receive the appetizers BEFORE the main course rather than with it, and the Female crabcakes are much smaller than the male crabcakes.

    You must have the sea food pasta. It is fantastic. Great service. Charming environment. Will go there again before I leave. The challenge will be to get something besides the aforementioned pasta

    Cajun sampler appetizer! $50.00 split between myself and 2 other people as our meal and it was worth every penny!!

    I loved the seafood gumbo and the bread pudding. The music was a little on the loud side in case you want to talk.

    Fantastic! Whateever you order, get a side of cole slaw. Pretty close to the best I've ever had, maybe THE best.

    Red beans and rice were the best. Followed by the gumbo then the crawfish étouffée last. Also the bowls are huge and the cups are tiny.

    This is a great place, especially if you are in New Orleans for a convention or exhibition. At night there is creole / xydeco music and dancing. I highly recommend their spicy sausage po boys! Read more

    Mediocre food but good atmosphere and selection for large groups looking for local cuisine. Overpriced but you can get a good muffuletta, cole slaw and Boudain here. Get your fix at Acme first.

    Great location, huge drinks but my muffaletta was greasy and if you don't like cheese its tough luck. They are premade and won't accomoadate your allergies. Super expensive for what it is.
