We decided to try this restaurant and just made it in time for Happy Hour. I had the Pulled Pork Sliders which came with french fries. Very good and fortunately the server advised me I wouldn't want dinner as this was a lot of food. My wife had the mussels and then soup. The mussels were okay but not great... More

Really nice atmosphere. I had the Tuscan chicken and it was excellent. I highly recommend. And the lightly cooked vegetables were great too.

Fontenot's is known for their poboy selection for a good reason. They ARE GOOD! Atmosphere is relaxed and service is friendly and good. Although I've gone there with my family It's become a business lunch favorite, too.

Stopped for a late lunch on the way to RMNP. The weather was great so we enjoyed a seat on the patio. The atmosphere was nice and the service was friendly and efficient. My friend had a salad and I enjoyed the Shrimp Cocktail with a side Caesar Salad. The shrimp were a good size and didn't taste freezer burned... More

We had a great lunch. Fish tacos were awesome with very fresh cajan fish. Fresh slaw was excellent. Everyone else got poboys. They were stuffed with meat and the rolls were so delicious. I'd definitely go back!!

Met some friends for dinner. Salad was awfully small, but good. Food (we had fish) was mediocre. Service ok. We felt the same the previous visit, but other people seem to like it a lot, so we gave it one more try. Would not go back. Winter Park is not know for its fine dining. Think a hamburger or Mexican... More

Second my child got a cup of milk it was half a cup, only half of our drink but yet all drinks were $2.50 including child's drink.... More

Not my favorite but a very good place to eat. Lots of fried items that I'm not that big on, but a very good Creol New Orleans styled theme that most locals enjoy a bunch! Never had bad food here, surprised most times that really enjoyed it, so my bias keeps me from going weekly or monthly. That may change,... More
