Everything about this place was just fun! From the décor that looks a bit like a Disneyland façade to the excellent seafood; this place is a great find. The servers are all very experienced and professional. If you want seafood in this mountain area, this is a good place.

Étouffée, fried shrimp & key lime pie were outstanding. Service was slow, but pleasant, even though it was mid afternoon and not very crowded. Still, it's a MUST.

Very good service. Food was OK, nothing special. Maybe my expectations were too high as I lived on the FL gulf coast for many years.

SO glad our group chose this as our last Restaurant for our 2014 trip. The wine selection is good, as is the beer (which includes many local breweries). Fresh "French" bread is served before meal - and more can be asked for. The atmosphere is nicer than casual, but does not require a suit or tie. There is outdoor seating.... More

Were staying in a condo in Winter Park and a previous guest had written in the guest book that the happy hour at Fontenot's should not be missed. So we had to try it and are glad that we did. It is a very attractive restaurant and a romantic place to have a cocktail and an appetizer. The $4 Bloody... More

This restaurant sure isn't what you'd expect to find in the Rockies, but here it is! It's decor is definitely New Orleans/Mardi Gras themed & so is (at least some) of the food. I had a shrimp po boy sandwich which was very good but could have used some more shrimp. On the small sandwich ($9) you get 4 pieces... More

My husband had the Surf and Turf and I had the Lafayette Pasta, they were both delicious! His steak was cooked exactly how he asked. The pasta was light and wonderful. Our server was great as well. We will definitely be back.
