Chef knows how to cook, never had a bad meal here, if you want quality you know where to go. Great Niceville hole in the wall, highly recommended.

The French Quarter Grill is not something you'd expect from the name. While the cuisine is undeniably Cajun there's always a sublime lagniappe. Here's some examples: Bumbo - Red Beans and rice in chicken and sausage gumbo? It's delicious. Heaping portions of shrimp and rice that will make your tongue slap your eyebrows off. Mediterranean Salad, really, here? Yep and... More

I ate here with my brother and had the blackened chicken. It was very delicious and flavorful. They offer a military discount and a big portion size.

Met friends for dinner. The food was excellent as always. The staff is very hospitable and knowledgeable. We were originally seated in the back dining hall, when a party with younger children came in. We figured it would get loud, so we asked if we could move to the front dining room as we were planning a more quiet dinner... More

BLUF: great cajun-inspired food done right! This place is easy enough to find and has space for groups. I had the grilled chicken and banana salad which was very tasty with perfectly grilled bananas in a right sized portion. My three companions really liked what they had and the prices are fair. I have this on my short list of... More

Stopped in tonight and had the shrimp po boy and the twisted chicken parm. Big portions and the chicken was juicy not over smothered in sauce but had a big layer of cheese that was phenomenal. Never had fried penne pasta and it was killer! The Po Boy was amazing and fresh fresh!! Big order of fresh hot beignets served... More

The food is fresh and the service is fantastic. Their dinner meals are larger portions, but they offer smaller portions (at reduced prices) so if you are going out for the evening, you do not have to worry about leaving to-go boxes in the car. I've had the smaller dinner portions and find that it is the perfect size meal.... More

The strange decor aside (it looks more like a Jamaican Rastafarian hangout than a Cajun restaurant/bar), The French Quarter Grill serves tasty food with a smile. I would have given a 5 star rating if our hot food had been served on a heated plate.

I have been here twice and got the same thing both times; the petite ny strip with the blackberry reduction. Both times it was perfect, the reduction is just enough. I don't know what anybody else had, too busy enjoying mine, lol. The service is great as are the prices. Must try!

When we arrived, there weren't many people in the restaurant which concerned us a little. We were determined to have an adventure so we stayed and tried it. The place looks like what I would imagine a small Bourbon St place would be. A little rough around the edges. Any concerns we had were gone when our food came to... More
