    The seafood gumbo and the BBQ ribs are so damn delicious! Def go for the fried pickles too. Service is not the greatest so be ready to not have the best customer service of your life.

    I had the Bloody Mary and the mufaletta. The drink was better than the sandwich. My son had the French toast and everybody at the table wished they had ordered it. Decent service. So-so food.

    Difficult to get seated- took 3 waiters. Had the sampler - Jambalya was 1st to disappear, followed by red beans & rice, shrimp creole & seafood gumbo... Rice pudding was one of the best I've had.

    Walked in with a group of 8 and was seated right away. The soft shell poy boy was really good. J Red was our waiter. Charming fellow and kept us entertained.

    I really liked the catfish. Waiter made some off-colour joke about the developmentally disabled that I could do without.

    Take a window seat or elevated area facing outside for people watching... Busy area teeming with interesting characters, tourists and interesting art

    Tried to eat here and the service was horrible! Waited awhile and no on bothered to even acknowledge us, we left. Go to Stanley's just down the street (away from cafe du monde). Excellent and friendly

    Should've listened to the other tips and left before ordering. Boyfriend's Pain Perdue was good, but my veggie omelet was horrible. Like eating spongy butter. Service was just ok.

    Food was awful. I ordered the Jambalaya and the chicken was dry as a bone and there was only two small pieces of andouille sausage. I then ordered the Muffeletta and it was just as bad. Avoid.

    Didn't have a bad experience, but our food was hit and miss. Crawfish was good. Sandwiches pedestrian. Salads not good. Service OK. Overall: same mediocre experience as other restaurants in the area.

    Eat Somewhere Else! No Southern Hospitality. Multiple mistakes with order, refused to make corrections, manager could care less and made no compensations! They assume most will only eat here once.
