Wonderful service, excellent food!!

After a long, fun day trip to the Winter Park area, we finally found Fontenot's and I am so glad we did!! We were not made to feel like we were sub par people because we didn't have a reservation (the way another restaurant in the area had).

I would first like to preface this with a few comments. 1) I have never submited a review like this before 2) I have been in the food and beverage industry for over 20 years and can not remeber being made to feel the way I did tonight while dining out. This has to be up there as one of... More

Great scallops and ahi. Service is very polite and accomodating. Drinks are strong. Not too happy with beer selection. Martinis are good. Dessert are too sweet. Banana is very syrupy and not recommended. Key lime pie is strong, but the crust is good.

Definitely has earned it's reputation and probably deserves to be ranked higher. Great service, very ample portions, great prices. My wife had the ahi tuna and I had the Atchafalaya catfish -- both exceeded expectations. The calamari appetizer was also most tasty and has a great presentation.

This was recommended and didn't disappoint. The decor inside looks like a street scene in New Orleans and is impressive, the only small improvement I would make is that the dining room gives the appearance of a school hall dining room - it could do with furniture to break it up, eg movable partitions. The food was also impressive. Seafood... More

We went to the restaurant because of its reputation of great pulled pork sandwich. It didn't disappoint. The pork is tender, tasty and juicy. The bun is the best we have had in the country, not the typical soft bread, but bread with a nice crust. The cole slaw and sweet potato fries are equally wonderful. Service is friendly and... More

We are from Louisiana and the food tasted good but was extremely pricy for the amount of food served. We waited for over two outs with 4 kids that were impatient and they served the adults first, which was weird. 20% gratuity was tacked on the bill for poor and slow service.

We had the steak with blue cheese sauce, and blackened catfish with etouffee. Both tasted just fine. Service was good.

I finally vacationed again at Winter Park after 15 years and was so looking forward to going back Fontenot's! I got to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner during my visit, and my expectations were exceeded. Every dish that I had was delicious ~ from shrimp po'boy, fried green tomatoes, sausage, french fries, eggs benedict, and beignets. Food was excellent, service... More

We have been here numerous times. Have followed this restaurant through 3 different locations. The food and service have always been excellent. Cajun fries are great.
