Excellent go to for dinner

Excellent Food and Excellent service. Cajun/Creole cooking all the way. Being a vegetarian, it wasn't a lot I could eat, except for some sides and dessert. But I will say that what I had was delicious. The place is always crowded and has a wait line of about 15 minutes, but it is worth it... read more

This was my first time to visit Gumbeaux's. Gotta say the place is excellent. The only issue I had is the portion of crab claws as an app, was a bit small for 13.95. Everything else including the service was excellent.

We had been told about the long lines, so we came a little early for lunch. Got a good table, but waited a while before we saw a server. Ordered a appetizer and entrees. The gumbo was pretty good, but needed some hot sauce. The red beans and rice was bland, and needed salt and hot sauce. The fried catfish... More

Just walk in and grab the first you see open. That's what I did. Right at the front door. An upstairs waitress asked," for or to go," It was lunch time 11:00 to 2:00pm. Waitress handed my order to the Bartender. And a large portion of Shrimp Cocktail and fabulous Cajun Sauce. A perfect texture and surprising an 8 count.... More

My husband and I always go to Gumbeaux's to eat on special occasion. The only bad thing about this place is the long wait time ( but that is only because a lot of people love to eat at Gumbeaux) it is well worth the wait. I have never found a dish that I did not like. If my husband... More

Excellent food and service. I'm sure you will enjoy your visit if you like Gajun food. Parking should not be a problem since we are a small town with parking on street or in nearby parking building.

In previous reviews, I have stated my love for peel and eat shrimp. I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert in this area; having growth up in what was considered the "Shrimp Capital of the World", Brunswick, Georgia. So when I heard about Gumbeaux's, I decided to drive out and give it try. The atmosphere was awesome. As... More

Have been here twice. Food is very good. Way too much but better that then not enough. Wait staff is very friendly. Food comes out really quick so don't order to many appetizers. You will get ir all at once.

I love true Cajun food and Gumbeaux gives you all the options. Come prepared to order multiple appetizers and an entree. They also have a full bar, but you'll need a glass of water because the food is deliciously spicy. My favorites are the crab claws, seafood gumbo and hot boiled shrimp. We eat here several times a year. They... More
