Good place for a slow lunch

Place is clean and neat, and staff has a good smile. Staff is helpful with menu questions. The food is well worth the wait. Looks and taste wonderful. We did have a noise problem as the staff prep for a big party. We arrived on time at 11:00, but staff was not ready to take orders. We were seated... read more

I didn't know what to expect with this restaurant but it turned out that the service is brisk, the food is in good portion, well-presented and reasonably priced. It seems to be a popular haunt frequented by people from all walks of life. The food is not what I would deem as healthy and perhaps, that's why it's delicious! We... More

Share multiple appetizers--blackened alligator, shrimp remoulade with fried green tomatoes. For entrees, any of the seafood--red snapper and crab, shrimp and grits, redfish. Save room for creme brulee or cheesecake or white chocolate bread pudding with banannas foster. Tuesday is half off house bottles of wine night!

Dined here recently with a large group for dinner. The food was great and the service excellent. I've dined here before and there are many excellent menu choices. I opted for the shrimp dinner, but several others ordered the Pecan Crusted Tilapia which look absolutely delicious and they confirmed that it was. Several ordered salads which they too said were...

Tope La serves Louisiana and multnational cuisine. I particularly loved the swordfish kabobs which they offered as a special on a farily recent visit to the restaurant. The restaurant has an exceptional atmosphere. It is one of the best restaurants in Hammond, and one of the best in all of southeast Louisiana in my opinion. While the restaurant is fairly... More

All the food at Tope La is very good, but my favorite time to eat there is Sunday Brunch. Very reasonable prices ( including $2 Bloody Mary's) and wonderful and somewhat unique Cajun dishes, like Cajun Eggs Benedict. Great atmosphere, professional and positive wait staff. I can promise you will go back on many Sundays to come!

I dd not a restaurant of this caliber in Hammond. It was a very pleasant surprise I would definitely return and will probably make a trip just to eat there. The staff was awesome as well as the food. I definitely recommend it

We sooooo look forward to stopping at Tope La in Hammond, LA every time we are driving back to our home in Florida’s Panhandle! The food is creative, fresh and delicious! On our most recent visit, we arrived a little late in the evening, like 8PM, but Tope La still had a significant crowd. In fact, there were more cars... More

We decided we could eat here each day for a week and never run out of options we wanted to order! Their red beans and rice with catfish was delicious as was the chicken breast with crayfish. Portions were large and we actually left with a left-overs which we finished off for dinner! We thought prices were very fair. There... More
