Excellent Seafood Salad

Went with a group of friends for lunch today. I had the Gulf Seafood Salad. It was wonderful. Everything our group got looked good. I think they may need to expand this place!

What an absolute delight. The service, the food and the atmosphere combine for a wonderful experience. The menu changes often and everything (that means *everything*) was just fantastic. Fish, steak, seafood ... all just perfect. After dinner, special desserts. What a great night.

The food here is very good. It has a unique menu. The place is small and can get crowded at lunch, so get there early. Check out the daily specials too!

I've been here once before and was very satisfied. This time the restaurant was almost empty. It's a shame because this is a unique and interesting dining establishment. First, the wine list is small, but well chosen and VERY reasonably priced. Very few restaurants pass up the opportunity to gouge you if you like wine with your dinner. This is... More

They have a great menu to choose from. Shrimp and grits are one of their sepcials. Nice staff. A little hard to find. Down on side street.

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!

I stopped by for lunch because I was in the area and the reviews did NOT disappoint! I got the special (chicken salad stuffed avocado) and let me just say, I've never enjoyed a salad so much! 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...
