Good food! Nice Place!

We ordered the gumbo and were not disappointed! Very authentic taste and ingredients. Service was friendly, if slow. (It was a Saturday and they seemed to be short of wait staff. The staff was trying, but just couldn't keep up.) Other patrons included what appeared to be local politicians... read more

Not being from the South I tried the Gumbo. It was ok, but not great. It had a portion of crayfish stuck in the middle of it. I set it aside as it was extremely messy to try to remove the small portion of meat that would have been available. Perhaps it was only meant as a garnish. The Gumbo... More

I went there with a couple of friends for lunch. The atmosphere was good. The service was not very friendly but not to be complained of, purely business. The food was served quickly. The taste of the food was normal or slightly less, the fried food was quite heavy with oil. The only exception to this would be the oysters... More

We ate here twice while visiting in the Clarion and ordered room service once. All the meals were delicious especially the charbroiled oysters, Burnside salad and crabmeat au gratin. Sat outside for lunch which was very nice and the service was excellent !! Lemonade pie was superb for dessert.

M.Anderson's spin on the charbroiled oysters is not less than brilliant, combined with great service, an experience to remember!

My husband and I stopped here while passing through the area. We had asked a local person where they would go to get some good seafood and they recommended Mike Anderson's. The food was very good, and the atmosphere was very nice. The service was a little off, but over all it was a good experience. If in the area... More

Although I'd lived in Baton Rouge for 11 years in the 80's and 90's, I'd never been to Mike's. On a recent first date, though, I decided it was time for that to change. The ambience of the place was very cozy and relaxing. The wait staff was very friendly, although the service was slow (it was only moderately busy,... More

After leaving a terrible review some time ago, I appreciated the comments from the manager enough to try again. Unfortunately, it was only slightly better than the first time. While staying at the hotel, I ordered room service. It was quite early in the day (4:15 pm) so when I was told 20 minutes, that sounded about right. The food... More

Business dinner with colleagues. There is a comfortable atmosphere here, and they recommend the local shellfish seafood. Friendly service and we were well served. The dinner was nice, had a blackened drum fillet. Oysters were enjoyed by my colleagues. all in all a good dinner. They have an outdoor patio too for when it is not too hot or cold.
