Not busy on a Thursday evening and we get special service from the bartender who is our server as well. Cute place with a mixture of Christmas decor and Cajun French quarter overtones. Good menu selection of many varied dishes which appeared gourmet. Hubby ordered the happy hour calamari and it was fresh cut squid prepared superbly served with two... More

Had dinner here with friends and was promptly seated by a very nice young lady. She told the specials and we ordered the spicy Bloody Mary's which were Devine. I had the Cajun shrimp pasta which honestly I was not a fan, Had no sauce and very little flavor for it being Cajun. my husband ordered the Chicken fried steak... More

Very good food... $$-$$$. Would recommend making reservations during peak ski season, but we arrived a week after that and had no problem getting a table. Entire wait staff was friendly and I didn't leave a bit of food on my plate and actually thought about licking the plate clean, but my friends stopped me just in time. I had... More

We showed up with 7pm reservations (party of 9) on New Year's Eve, arriving 15 minutes early. We knew in advance it was going to be one of the busiest dining out nights of the year, but they handled it all perfectly. We were seated at 7:02, the server was great, food was awesome, and the atmosphere was very nice.... More

It is one of our favorites - always can count on great food, and great service. Beer selection is striving to include Colorado craft beers, but can be hit and miss, unless you know your craft beers. I miss my regular Blue Moon !!!

We ordered a Philly Po'Boy and had it upsized then split in two, with sweet fries. The amount of food was perfect for us when we put some fries into a to-go box. The sandwich and fries were both excellent. We were there for lunch and there was only one other table being served, so it was very quiet.

This place was recommend. It shouldn't have been. I went for the fish tacos. They didn't taste bad but the worst I've ever had. I guess I need to stick to the gulf states for fish tacos. The service was so-so. The did have an outside dining area which was nice because it was a good day to eat out.... More

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. The waitress was pleasant and the food came in a timely manner. The problem is with the food. We ordered a salad and a pasta entrée to share. The food is just, well, NOT good. We are not food snobs and eat at inexpensive restaurants frequently. Our total bill here... More

We stopped at Fontenot ' because it was conveniently located off the highway. We were pleasantly surprised. We received quick service and the food was good. The Tortilla Soup was delicious. The Gumbo was okay as we're the Fried Green Tomatoes. The Seafood Sliders were good as well as the fries.
