Starting with the architecture, Hot Belly Mama's is a gem: high ceiling in an old building on a main street. Unassuming furniture with an attractive bar, colourful posters and postcards on the wall. Maybe it's a typical New Orleans schtick, but it's well done. Same with the food. I can't say how authentic it was, but the choices were attractive... More

It was great to find southern/French Quarter food in Ontario! While it was not 100% authentic, it was definitely good food! We ate at the front of the building which was actually outside, and it was a warm, lovely evening. After a long day of driving, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Something to try when in Peterborough!!

We can't help but gravitate to Hot Belly Mama's when visiting Peterborough not only is the food good but you won't get the Olde Stone Brewery beer on tap anywhere else. The Brewery is downstairs and you can go down to see it through the glass walls. If you're a beer connoisseur you will appreciate being able to match your... More

Parking downtown can be a pain however it's worth it to try Hot Belly Mama's. Nice variety of unique menu choice and great micro brew beer.

If you want the warmth of New Orleans style home cooking without the car ride, definitely give this place a visit. Beautiful and inviting decor makes you feel like your really are eating at a restaurant in the south, and great food and great wait staff completes the experience. Probably the best lunch we have had this trip.

Love the blackened catfish & the sweet potatoe frites, the music & the beer, the view to the street and the friendly waiters. A must try is the corn soup and gumbo too. Definately recommend Hot Belly Mama's. Yum yum good...

Great specials and Cajun food. Catfish, brown sugar chicken, jambalaya, ribs, salads and the best sweet potato fries anywhere! The atmosphere is New Orleans, the seating is comfortable and they have great Blues/Jazz music playing at a low level. They also have great beer, including beer from their own micro-brewery. If you like this sort of fare, you're going to... More

My husband took me here for my birthday. We decided to order a bunch of appetizers and share them. Crawfish, Catfish, Blacken Chicken, Caesar Salad, Cornmeal Dumplings...YUMMY! We've never had crawfish before but they were great. After a while though, I admit, their little eyes were starting to get to me. lol. We will definitely go back for another appetizer... More
