I was a little skeptical, but I knew my husband would like it so we went. So glad we did! This place is great! The staff could not have been any more friendly. The food was so good! My philly po boy and red beans were unbelievably good. We also tried the bread pudding. It is very strong, but I... More

A lot of fried fish. I do not love this kind of cook, but I recognize the great taste of shrimps... Great choice if you are looking fast meal, healthier than burghers or ribs.

So wonderful to find a place in Alabama that knows how to prepare and cook seafood. First place I've been that actually cleans and de-veins their shrimp. The flavors were good as well and the bread is out of this world good. Oh and did I mention the BEST Bread Pudding EVER! Wow! Don't pass up on dessert here.

For us northerners, this southern style place was unlike the places we typically go to, but it was a great experience, with good food. Very casual, with disposable utensils and plates. Waiter service was good though, and friendly. Was crowded, but no real wait for a table. Would go back again if ever in Huntsville again!

The only thing I liked was the catfish. Slaw was commercial, fries were the standard frozen crinkle cut fried ones, won't go back....ugh....

Not a fancy place. We had sweet tea, fried pickles, fried shrimp and gumbo. It was all hot and delicious. We got there at 5 pm and got seated right away but if you get there at the dinner hour be prepared to wait a while because it's a small place. We found it a little pricey, but the quality... More

We went to the Po Boy Factory today for lunch. They were busy as usual. We had the shrimp basket with jambalaya. It was all excellent.

My son and I had the Fried Shrimp and Gumbo and Oysters. The shrimp were very small and the gumbo was very watery with hardly any seafood in it. This is no way even close to actual Gulf Coast Cuisine. It is obvious that they are skimping on quality to save money. However, I guess being in Huntsville it is... More

If you're looking for that special local dive, this is it! Try the crab cakes...I guarantee they have more crab meat and less filler than any cake you've had. Try the gator, big, succulent portions of tasty heaven! Try the hot dam sauce, just squirt it on your Cajun fries and enjoy. It's family friendly with an eclectic atmosphere. The... More
