Good food

The food has been great every time I've been here. The thing I don't like about this place is that it is always crowded. There is not much room inside the restaurant to wait. The bar area is small and gets congested easily. If you don't mind waiting it is a great place for dinner. Big portions.

If you like incredibly absurdly spicy food, you'll love this place. But only if you also enjoy waiting at least an hour for a table and a substandard wait staff. Our group of 4 had gumbo, seafood chowder, entree salad, jambalaya, and stuffed shrimp. The sides were cole slaw, red beans and rice, and hushpuppies. Everything (and I mean everything-... More

What a wonderful experience we had last week (May 2015) in Gumbeaux Cafe. This restaurant was recommended by the Receptionist in the Econo Lodge, Douglasville (another great experience). It was so busy, we had to wait for a suitable table. The staff were outstandingly friendly and attentive (there ARE uses for an English accent). The food was absolutely outstanding, delivered...

Tonight Gumbeaux's had an off menu baked oysters with crab meat, peppers and cheese stacked on top. First time I've seen or had this item, they were great. Oyster specials are usually on Thursday nights, ask for this one the next time.

the wait is 30-45 mins which is ok for a weekend. Policy sucks. They will not seat you until all of party is on site. My daughter and i were meeting two friends arriving later. They refused to seat us at a table for four to wait and possibly order appetizers and drinks. They work on how many people they... More

The food is great and service is very good. The only bad thing is the wait especially in the winter when a line is outside and you have to wait because restaurant does not have lots of waiting room.
