Enjoyed a delicious dinner at Jake's Seafood Restaurant in Marrero. This is a neighborhood restaurant where you are treated like Family. Jake's makes the BEST Seafood Gumbo in NOLA (seriously). We loved the Fried Seafood Platter, with Oysters, Shrimp, Catfish, & Stuffed Crab. The Crabmeat au Gratin was divine, as was their tasty Pasta Giardina with plump Gulf Shrimp served... More

Jakes' buffet is small and has limited offering. However, what is offered is relatively good. Do wish the breading on the fried catfish had a bit more flavor and spices. Great service and reasonable prices.

Jakes Seafood would not be somewhere you would see unless you knew where to look, but make sure you do look because their food is just incredible. My husband got the oyster po-boy-- which was huge and the most delicious I've ever tasted-- and I had the Eggplant Orleans which was equally as fantastic. The fried pickles were absolutely out...

Love the buffet on Monday's. They have fried pork chops and fried chicken legs and thighs, mashed potato's, gravy, red beans, white beans, rice and french bread pieces. They also have a salad bar and pudding. I have eaten there many times over the years not just on Mondays and my food has always been good. From the chicken fried... More

Jakes Seafood Restaurant l: This was the best NOLA seafood restaurant that I have ever tried, I swear it tasted like everything what caught fresh this morning and made from scratch. We ordered the Captains Platter which serves 2 with plenty of food for any appetite for only $30.95! Shrimp, Catfish, Stuffed Crab, Stuffed Mushrooms, Hush Puppies and Gumbo. I... More

So, when two white guys, and a South Asian gal, from Canada come into a place like this, you never know what kind of experience you'll have. Here, it was a hoot. The older woman behind the counter coveted my hat when we came in the door, and we laughed for a while about how she couldn't have it. The... More
