Great concept with great service.

Very satisfying meal last night. Service was fantastic. Food was solid, however the rice with the good Friday fish special was less than average. I mentioned this to the waitress who apologized and have some jambalaya to make up for it. I would go back.

Every time I come home I go to hot belly mamas with my family or friends. The food is always excellent, generous portions and the staff are great. The beers are delicious and the atmosphere is casual and fun. Can't wait for my next visit! The nachos are unique and delicious and the en salads San Francisco are my favourites.

Hot Belly Mamas is great if you are looking for something a little different! This place offers different, delicious and unique menu items! The Havana salad, blacked catfish and Vegetarian roti is a few of my favourites; if you haven't already, you MUST try the homemade desserts!!

lunch menu was appealing and daily specials were tempting. I don't eat pork so I opted for soup with warmed me with it's medium spices and fresh veggies. I will definitely go back again to try more menu items. The staff were attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was calm and relaxing and I felt very comfortable.

Hot Belly Mama's is a fantastic place to eat...with great variety, delicious food, reasonable prices, daily specials, friendly staff and a great ambience. The meals are very filling, the cooks are great about substituting ingredients and the Blackened Catfish Po'Boy is my absolute favorite. If you love cajun food in a New Orleans style atmosphere then Hot Belly Mama's is... More

All our food was served hot and reasonably quickly considering how busy they were at lunch. My wife can't take food that's too spicy but really enjoyed the Cat Tails and the BBQ Bruschetta! For...

My family love this place. Always has excellent spicy food. Love that their wait staff can recommend items that have less heat for those not liking spicy food. I Love their jambalaya! Great place for friends and family to gather. Great place to enjoy after a movie downtown in Peterborough.. Busy any time of year. Make reservations especially if you... More

One of our all time favorite places to eat. Great Cajun/Creole menu for lunch or dinner with good prices and interesting beer. Often very busy so don't be in a rush. The decor and atmosphere is fabulous and the servers are attentive.

It's always a good time at Hot Belly Mamas. The Southern music-themed décor is fun, the atmosphere casual and the food really good for the price. Love the cornmeal-crusted catfish and have had pleasurable experiences with the daily specials. Staff are welcoming and efficient.
