Success! Thanks for posting your review of Gumbo Shop. You’ve done the world some good today.


Two of my friends were in town from Denver over Labor Day weekend and my BFF, who's another local, recommended we all eat there after partying all night in the French Quarter. I ordered the bbq roast beef poboy with potato salad and a drink. The poboy and potato salad was absolutely delicious! I felt like I swallowed the whole meal in whole without even inhaling :-O. I was reluctant to try their seafood gumbo because... view more

Delicious Gumbo

I'm surprised by these negative reviews. I went to the Gumbo shop with my colleague and we loved it. I ordered the Seafood Okra. We were at a convention and was told by the locals that we needed to try this place. The service was ok, not exceptional, but nothing to complain about for us. Maybe since we are from New York, it seemed normal :-) If you want to create your own try their Creole Seasonings as a take ... view more

Okay, so I am born and raised in New Orleans. Needless to say, I KNOW good New Orleans food, especially gumbo. This place is absolutely AWFUL and the service is PATHETIC. I ate there yesterday evening with some co-workers. I really was expecting so much better for such a popular restaurant in the French Quarter. Unfortunately, we made a big mistake when choosing to eat at the Gumbo Shop. There's a board near the fro... view more

Husband and I drove 200 miles for my birthday weekend in N.O. I picked Gumbo Shop for my birthday dinner. I didn't receive my entree so I told my waiter and nothing was done. I went to management twice and finally they agreed to bring out my entree but only after going back in forth for 30 mins. I said no thanks and asked to have it removed from our bill along with the desserts that we ordered. I wasn't in the mood s... view more

It's alright

We decided to try this restaurant on our recent trip to New Orleans. I am vegetarian while my husband is definitely non-vegetarian. After having a couple of drinks and appetizers on Bourbon Street we decided to try this restaurant. Even though there was a wait outside, we were seated pretty quickly (since it was just the two of us). The service was alright and the food was ok too. Their vegetarian special was ri... view more

Avoid if you want to save your money and your apetite!!!

Avoid if you want to save your money and your appetite!!!\r \r I taught we ordered gumbo soup. Well the soup was absolutely awful. If you add the terrible service the place become one of a kind NOT to go there again restaurant. Non of us found any sea food in the soup more then 1.2%. Service was really BAD. And the tip was already included. Plus if you like to be seeing from outside while you are in the restroom th... view more

canned seafood

My fiance and I just ate here less than an hour ago. We were promptly seated in a very crowded and cramped dining room, the bread thrown on table right in front of her in a cloth napkin. Our dinner was brought out to us very quickly. I had the seafood gumbo, which was not terrible after adding some of the pepper blend that was on the table. She ordered the combination plate and substituted the crawfish etoufee for th... view more

Do not eat here!

I just got back from visiting New Orleans--a city known for its food--and I can honestly say that the entire experience I had at the Gumbo Shope was horrible, from the service to the food itself. The Gumbo Shop definitely caters to tourists, but as a tourist myself I thought I would try it. The prices may be reasonable compared to other restaurants, but the food you receive for it is horrible. I got the Combinatio... view more

Gumbo gumbo goooood

Boyfriend and I went here early in the week for lunch. There was a brief wait as the hostess sat another couple, but that was it. We were seated outside, which was perfect as the weather was not too hot, not too cold. The table was rather close to our neighbors (the two tables could also be used for a group of four) but it turned out fine as they were nice people! The food was excellent. Boyfriend ordered chicke... view more
