Our reservation was for 5:45 on a Saturday evening. We were seated immediately. The lighting was low. There were kitchy Mardi Gras decorations all over the place, which made it somewhat charming. The restaurant occupies an old house. And we noticed that appetizers were half-price before 6:30 PM...everyday. We decided to try several appetizers. Went with hush puppies (deep-fried corn... More

They greet you like a friend and serve the best food possible in a quirky, comfortable and occasionally strange setting that sings of the founders love of the ideal south. It's not for everyone, but if you want to feel treasured and be well fed with options for all (lo, for the carnivore and the vegan shall dine together, and... More

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We arrived an hour early for our reservation because the movie ended sooner than expected. That was no problem and we were escorted to a tented table for two on the upper level. There was a mardi gras price fixe special. We enjoyed the St. Peter Street fish and shrimp etouffee. I... More

This place is absolutely outstanding. A few friends of mine took me here when I was visiting the city for a few days, and I wasn't disappointed. We came early, so they were doing half price appetizers at the time. So we figured we would get a bunch of appetizers to share amongst us and get a few rounds of... More

We just love Southern Accent and have been here many times. The food is fantastic! Hush puppies and crab cakes for starters, catfish and blackened chicken for entrees, and last but not least the gigantic sized Hurricanes they serve up!! SIMPLY AMAZING! Warm, friendly and knowledgeable staff and funky, cool decor and setting.

How did I not know this place has existed from 30 years?!?!? Having just returned not so long ago from NOLA (and eating some of the best food ever there) this was a choice for a special evening out to recapture some cajun nostalgia.....it does not disappoint at all. From the weird authentic layout (both spooky and fun), to the... More

I have been here several times and every time the food always exceeds my expectations! The hush puppies are wonderful but even the home-made humus served with the bread at the beginning of the meal is fabulous! I have had tried many different items off the main menu as well as going during the summerlicious and winterlicious menu - I... More
