A bit pricey

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.

Just minutes off I 75 in the little town of locus grove is the french market restaurant, the menu is unique, the food is great and the service wonderful. I had the Chinese Chicken Salad...a mound of the mixtures of Napa Cabbage, carrots, chicken and oriental dressing that a "show dog couldn't jump over" (It is a HUGE portion) The... More

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

Food is good, but for the amount or the type of food, is pricey. The Atmosphere not that great, it feels like you eating at antic place, which they have lots of antics for sale.

We were on a business trip and this place was recommended by a local colleague. Great food, charming ambience and there was shopping available for those so inclined in our party. Generous portions so bring an appetite. Great desserts. Southern faire- fried green tomatoes, crawfish Etouffee, colard greans. All very fresh tasing with distinct flavors. I will return here on...

As someone who lived in New Orleans for 5 years, I am always looking for good NOLA food to bring me back to those days. The French Market and Tavern does just that! The experience started with fried green tomatoes and finished with a catfish poboy and Abita beer. The store, friendly service, and excellent food are both worth the... More

The decor is nice but our chicken cordon bleu was burned and the stuffed catfish was cold inside. This isn't our first time with very poorly cooked food. I don't understand the positive reviews as the food is poor quality. Recent health scores were 60-80 too.

I was very exited to eat here. When we got there I saw the prices were very high. I figured the food should be very good. It was the oppset of good. The food was very nasty. The bill was way to much for Alfull food. When we were walking out I noticed the heath inspection was hid behind the... More
