We had heard of this restaurant from some friends and were so pleased! The atmosphere was cozy, the Chocolate Martii was superb and the seafood salad as HUGE, with large shrimp, crab meat and a large soft shell crab on top. Absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to go again!

The place is very small, but clean and nice. I expected a little nicer place for what I was paying for the food. The staff was very nice... The redfish dinner $25 was delicious! The other fish dish with crab was tasty too. Awesome food, portions - about average, pricey? yes.

I was invited to speak at a seminar sponsored by the Louisiana Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys on June 6, 2014. Restaurants at the Casino we bland and uninspiring. Found The Brown Bag Gourmet on Trip Advisor. Wow!!!!! Great food, service ,and price. The chef / owner can compete with anyone. Magnificent!

It's all in the details at this place. Great atmosphere and service. Everything on the menu looked so delicious! I just wanted to... More

Thanks to the great reviews we tried it out while in town. Can literally say its one of the best overall meals I have ever had! Started with pecan crusted shrimp..then crab cakes while the hubby devoured the soft shell crab and we shared the awesome Mac and cheese! We will make it back for another meal before we leave...

This place is great! Not only is the food top notch it is different than the "normal" run of the mill eating place. All the tables were beautiful and clean. The host met my wife and I at the door with a welcoming smile. She told us where to go to order and what to expect. I ordered the Sauteed... More

The BBG is tucked in a office shopping center next to a speedy loan place but don't let the location deter you. This is a hidden gem! The food was superb! Fresh, well prepared and delicious. I had the tasso crusted redfish. It came with a half of a grilled lemon which I loved because I like a generous amount... More
