    Food was delicious. Waiter could’ve been more attentive, he did not ask us if we wanted another drink or a dessert. Automatic 18% gratuity included on bill which is probably why the waiter was subpar.

    The food was awesome. My favorite was the gator bite appetizer. I had the catfish fish fried hard with the red beans and rice , so good. The carrot cake and chocolate was perfect. I would come back my next time I am in town.

    The food was very good and the service was perfect! If you have not been to fishbone's west or haven't been in a while give it a try! I had the crawfish etouffee which was very good. The claw chowder was outstanding and the coconut shrimp was delicious.

    A great dinner with Family. A good variety in the Menu selections. Meals were provided with plenty of portions. Drinks were prepared well. A great place for a table for dinner night for two or for a family outing.

    Waitress didn't come to table for over 10 minuets after we arrived, shrimp were burned, gumbo was old and tasted like gravy and shrimp. All fried foods were burned, grease was old and the red beans were hard and undercooked as was the rice. Do not eat here. Its a disgrace to southern/cajun/creole cooking! Never going nack if i have to pay for it!

    They had no record of my reservation. We were seated, but it took fifteen minutes for a waiter to appear. Did not keep checking back. Took fifteen minutes to get drinks after ordered. Entire meal took 2 hours.

    For the prices of the food it was extremely low quality, listed ingredients on the menu weren’t actually in the prepared dish. Vegetables were obviously frozen and the overcooked very pale and unappetizing. Food included a lot filers, salt and sauces to hide low quality of the ingredients. If you’re looking for great food and a nice night out this is not the place. It’s more of a sports bar atmosphere than nice night out. Staff is very friendly.

    Service was insanely slow. Our waiter was great when we saw him.. but almost an hour went by while we were waiting for our drinks and appetizers without us seeing him at all. Food was tasty! Waiter made some mistakes with food like forgetting to put in one of the orders.. but brought that person a complimentary slice of cheese cake and apologized. Food was unique-some of the items didn’t taste authentically New Orleans but still good. All in all, it was loud and slow but food was good and the server was nice.

    The hostess Lee was professional, courteous and personable. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with kindness. Our waitress (Ellen I think) was joyous, all smiles that shined from even behind her mask. She provided excellent recommendations when asked. And finally the food was delicious !!!
