First thing that upsets me, why do u have a kids menu and high chairs if u have no diaper changes. Family places should have diaper changes they do not cost that much! 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

My husband and I were in Winter Park for a couple of days. We decided to try Fontenot's for dinner our last evening in town. We went a little early so we got seated immediately. We were sat in the back by the window out to the patio. What a view, a bunch of old bricks, trash, as table with... More

We were really impressed with this restaurant on a weekend trip to Winter Park. I had the blackened Alaskan Cod which was fantastic. Even the fries were great! Definitely recommend trying the fried green tomatoes; an oldie but a goodie. Our waiter was extremely friendly and prompt. We never had to wait for or ask for anything. We sat on... More

Delightful margaritas came with inspired bites. The shrimp were bountiful and delicious and the kettle chips hit every taste bud. Service here is excellent.

Great food and service. Menu has several New Orleans style (perhaps not always authentic) offerings. Seafood is excellent despite location. Chef's daily specials are interesting and consistently outstanding. I've made it a stop whenever I'm in the area skiing, hiking or biking for about 20 years. Not inexpensive, but worth the price.

We stopped in for lunch before heading down the mountain. We both ordered the Philly cheese steak poor boy. It was great! The meat was tender and the roll was really good. It's a really cute place with the décor right out of New Orleans. Next time we will try on of the seafood dishes. The service was great and... More

You know you're not in an authentic Cajun kitchen when they serve you mashed potatoes instead of dirty rice as a side. WTH !

Chris M, Owner at Fontenot's Seafood & Grill, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the mashed potatoes. While we're proud to serve up Cajun flavors, not all of our dishes are Cajun. Next time, feel free to chat with our team, and we'd be happy to recommend something more to your liking. Until then, Chris, Owner More

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.
