Gotta go here

A co-worker introduced me to this place and I was delighted with the basic ambiance to the place and stellar service at such a decent price. It's certainly fitting of the cliche "hole in the wall" type of place given the location and parking. Note- there is adequate parking. The jerk chicken salad... read more

We went here with our 3.5 year old. They have a separate seating area away from the bar. Service was great. It was prompt, food was hot, and each dish was delicious. They also have a great happy hour. I will be going back again.

Great food-- crawfish etoufee and nantua, etc. Not cheap. Lunch typically $20. Restaurant is pretty basic but food is amazing.

Lived here two years and tried everything on the menu. The place may not look like much from the outside but the food is the best on town! I recommend the buffalo wings!

I ate here for lunch one day and enjoyed the food. I cannot say that it is authentic Cajun food, but it comes close. The choices mostly revolve around the Cajun theme, but there are other choices. I would suggest this restaurant if you are looking to try something new, but don't expect it to wow you.

I was visiting my parents in Defuniak Springs and they took me to a local Vietnamese place for Pho soup but that place was closed. So we tried this place and loved the food. I had the spicy chicken and sausage over pasta. Deeeelish!!!

A friend and I had lunch here today and all I can say is that I wasn't impressed. I was looking for New Orleans style cuisine and did not find it there.I wanted the crawfish bisque but when I asked her if it was the crawfish shell like in New Orleans, she said no so I passed because I only...

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
