I visited Gumbeaux's for the first time last week. Having experienced the real taste of New Orleans last summer, it was a pleasant surprise to taste the real flavors like if I was back there. Service is excellent and food delicious and fresh. I had some alligator; tender and tasty. Drinks are amazing and prices reasonable. The only thing I... More

If you are in the area you must stop. They have a huge selection. We had the gator bites and they were delicious. Also on Tuesday it is shrimp night and they have some great deals. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

We were here the Saturday before Christmas, arriving at 1230, so it was very crowded. Still had only a 20 minute wait. Wait staff was so efficient and friendly. I got the Cajun sampler, and it was delicious. I could only eat half of it. The two combo platter my son in law had with alligator and crawfish bites was... More

One hell of a drive, and worth every mile. I was told that this was the premier Cajun restaurant in the area, so I had to try it out. As a frequent visitor to New Orleans, I've had some comparable NO food near Roswell, but Gumbeaux's was far and away the best so far. As you walk up to the... More

This is by far our favorite restaurant. The seafood chowder and fried craw fish is our usual, but all other items are just as good.

Casual delicious. You may have to wait awhile but it is worth it. Shrimp Tuesday the best. Loved it!

I absolutely love this place. The food is delish and the service is always great. The seafood gumbo is a must. I order it every time. It's available in a bowl or a cup. Andy if you love bread pudding, they serve one with rum sauce that's large enough to serve 2 people, although I've never been willing to share... More

We've been going to Gumbeaux since they opened. Their wonderful food has become a favorite for my family. We each have our favorites. Their shrimp, any way they serve it is always fresh. If you can get the fried crab claws go for it!

I grew up near New Orleans so I know great Cajun food. Gumbeaux's brings it. Those in the know in the Atlanta area know this place beats the crap out of places like Papadeaux. This is real Cajun food cooked by owners from Louisiana. Their chicken and sausage gumbo is reminiscent of the French Quarter's famed Mr. B's Bistro's "Gumbo... More
