My wife and I dine here often and we have never been disappointed.The goat cheese salad is the best. Gabes always has a great salmon dish with prep changing over time. Also, pecan crusted catfish is a stable that is a can't miss. Drinks are generous and always fresh baked bread. The staff is friendly. Prices are well in line... More

The day we were there for lunch it was very crowded and service was outstanding. The food was good, but our Po Boys were a bit dry(bread) and bland. Guess we're too use to eating one in New Orleans; however, the corn and crab bisque was excellent and we enjoyed the warm Brie with toast points.

Love the grilled chicken over greens topped with goat cheese ,walnuts and cranberries for lunch. If you want fine dining with no traffic nor driving into Atlanta, this is your night time place. Check for specials on Valentine's day too.

Yet another amazing Cajun restaurant in the area. The owner used to be the exec chef at Gumbos - another wonderful dining experience - so no wonder the food here is incredible. One page menu keeps things sweet and simple. Variety of menu is perfect. Chef's personal twist on the dishes are awesome! Small place so try to get there... More

We love waiter John and his service. The food is always amazing and menu rotates with seasons. New Orleans inspired menu and look and feel make it a pleasure to come back every week.

I had the pecan crusted catfish and it was outstanding! My wife had the Pork Snitzel and it was great! Our server Beth was excellent. We would definitely come back when we're in the area!

i have traveled from Birmingham twice just to eat here. The food though a slight pricey 26-35 range, is absolutely delicious. Very comfortable surroundings, with a touch of elegance in the service. Family friendly, though no menu for children that i am aware of. We took a 12 year old and he and I split a steak, which left us... More

This place has atmosphere, good service and great food. My fiancé and I ate dinner there and had the goat cheese salad. It was superb. Our main course was corn and crab bisque and seafood étouffée. Both were true Louisiana classics and were off the chain! If you're in the mood for Cajun, stop here!

Ate dinner our last night in Villa Rica at Gabe's with friends (and all of our kids). The blackberry infused vodka makes a terrific drink to start the evening! Had calamari, boudin balls and the egg rolls as appetizers. Each one was spectacular.! The kids'meals were enough for an adult and the kids loved them. I had Pig en Croute... More
