The food is always very good and love the atmosphere. I have eaten lunch here several times. The rebuen, hamburgers and sandwiches are always delicious. Love the onion rings. I haven't been for dinner, but one of these days my husband and I will try it. He is a chef himself, so we appreciate fine food. Especially, like patronizing non... More

Pros: My husband and I had a chance to visit The French Market recently for lunch. Our lunch was amazing... Great service, nice atmosphere and excellent food. We had the Boudin Balls (appetitizer), Fat Mac (burger), Shrimp and grits and Beignets (dessert). All of the food was hot, fresh, well seasoned and delicious! Cons: Although, the shrimp and grits dish... More

Novel presentation of restaurant, with the gift shop and bakery first. Many great gift ideas. Food was prepared well. Service was fine. Quality of food did not warrant cost of food.

The French Market is an amazing local restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere, very relaxing and great service. Lots of different and unique food selections and no one leaves disappointed or hungry. It is a little pricey but you are paying for very fresh food and a restaurant that uses local produce so it is well worth it. Wonderful find on the Southside,... More

Found this place with the iExit app on the way from Florida to North Carolina. Great food. We both had shrimp and grits. Delicious version with a cream gravy and andouille. Menu is New Orleans inspired. May have to stop on the way back home for the amazing looking desserts! Well worth diversion from The interstate.

This restaurant/shop is located in the small Locust Grove downtown area. There is plenty of free parking on and across the street. When we first walked in, we went through a cute gift-store area which had eclectic items full of southern charm. It really set the ambiance well. We were seated right by the large windows so we had a... More
