Gumbo Shop Review

Even given a few modern touches—like the vegetarian gumbo offered daily—this place evokes a sense of old New Orleans. The menu is chock-full of regional culinary anchors: jambalaya, shrimp Creole, rémoulade sauce, red beans and rice, bread pudding, and seafood and chicken-and-sausage gumbos, all heavily flavored with tradition but easy on the wallet. The patina on the ancient painting covering one wall seems to deepen by the week, and the old tables and bentwood chairs have started to seem like museum pieces. Reservations are accepted only for groups of 10 or more.

    Gumbo Shop Review

    I really don't see what there is to like about this place. I went with a group of seven and every of us had eaten better food elsewhere in New Orleans. Our server kept forgetting we were there, everyone's food was bland, forget about the bread pudding and my husband was sick during the night! I guess one of my best friends, who owns a restaurant is right - take a look at the bathrooms and if they're dirty, so is the kitchen.

    Great reccomendation

    Our hotel concierge recommended it. Very reasonable prices for good food, and the service was fantastic - friendly, helpful. I liked my jambalaya, and everyone seemed pleased with their meal. We had better bread pudding elsewhere.
