Foursquare Tips

  • The house was built in 1737 during the French occupation of the coast. The restaurant was opened in 1964 and is the most upscale restaurant on the Gulf Coast.
  • Best gumbo on the coast!!
  • Bob Mahoney, the owner, is a class act and it is my all-time favorite restaurant!
  • Mini softshell crabs, gumbo, blue cheese salad, surf n turf w/ crab meat, apple pie w/ ice cream... Enough said
  • Amazing gumbo, possibly the best I have ever had! Their homemade blue cheese dressing is great and the stuffed snapper is heavenly! Don' forget the bread pudding, it is wonderful. Amazing restaurant!
  • Get the George Salad for Lunch!
  • Excellent seafood gumbo
  • Good service & delicious & well priced lunch specials
  • Great specialty dishes..."Sisters Of The Sea" an Exclusive favorite!
  • Awesome prime rib
  • I had the Shrimp and Crabmeat AuGratin just the other day and yes it is fabulous! Maybe the best on the menu.
  • I had to add this tip halfway through the meal: Gumbo and bread are awesome!
  • Best seafood on the coast!!!
  • Less than impressed! Not only did we stand at the entrance with 0 greeting; we were asked why we were there, followed by a "klan" reference, while I was accompanied by my African American friend.
  • Anything with lump crab is a winner here! Charming atmosphere - lovely waitstaff
  • How good is this place? After I cleaned my plate, I thought about licking my plate but I talked myself out of it. Also don't miss the 2000 year old tree in the courtyard!
  • Just about everything is good here!
  • Very good food. Yet expensive. All dinner entres are $37 each. Food was excellent. This place has history. Worth the experience.
  • Love it. My go to place for lunch. Stuffed snapper and crawfish pasta is a must if your first visit. Lunch menu is a reasonably priced treat. Super staff.
  • The service is as excellent as the food. Don't skip the gumbo. You will be happy with any of the main courses. Save room for the bread pudding.
