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

Southern Accent is a very quaint but cool restaurant situated on a cozy residential street. It is draped with Mardi Gras accents and is in a comfy-cozy space. The hostess at the door announced she had just ended her shift but would seat us anyway (hmm). But, we were soon greeted by a super friendly waiter (Adam) who quickly became... More

As soon as I entered a restaurant with a fortune teller and campy decorations, I instantly regretted making dinner reservations there. Fortunately the decor was by no means an indication of the food. The cheese grits were so good we had 2 orders! The cracker crusted catfish was moist and flavourful.

Went here for date night. Excellent patio during the summer. Everytime I eat here I have to order their hush puppies (corn fritters served with a garlic lime piquant sauce). The sweet/sour contrasted with a hint- so very subtle of heat is excellent. Hush puppies are crispy on the outside and very light and fluffy on the inside. A great... More
