Homey little local place

Came here on the recommendation of a local. The service was friendly and prompt. The gumbo tasty. The shrimp fresh and the aligator sausage poboy good. Appeared acceptably clean to us. The French fries not the best I'd ever eaten but I was full anyway.

The service was horrible. For starters,they did not have a gluten free menu. I asked for water & it was horrible . It had a very strange taste so obviously it came from the faucet. Luckily, I had bottled water in the car. I took my toddler to the rest room & it was filthy. The toilets probably had not... More

Drove over an hour to meet friends at Vera's on a recommendation from someone who frequents the restaurant. The recommendation was on target. An invite from friends on a Saturday night brought us at 6:15 p.m. for our first time to Vera's. We were greeted and seated promptly. The server could not have been more attentive and POLITE.

Although the post-Katrina Veras has a different location and atmosphere, the food is very good and we have made this a regular lunch spot. They have the best fried shrimp in the area and their sandwiches are also very good. Periodically, they will offer a $13 maine lobster special, including side and a salad. Overall, Veras is clean, service is... More

Overall, the food was good and the service was average. The recommendations for Vera's came from locals who remember the location pre-Katrina and they were all excellent. So we tried it, and while we had a good time and enjoyed the food, it was not what I had been led to expect. Now located in a strip mall that is... More

This was our first time to dine here, and it exceeded our expectations. I ordered grilled catfish and fried catfish to see which was the better. The grilled catfish was the winner. My wife ordered grilled trout, and it too was delicious.

Past visits had left us not wanting to return here but friends insisted the food was improved and worth trying again. We went for dinner and our friends were right. The food was tastier and more plentiful than in our past 2 visits.The staff was friendly and the atmosphere cozy. We will go back and hope they keep up the... More

Went to dinner with some friends here last night and I must say I have no desire to go back. Our waitress was nice but I don't recall her introducing herself. When we ordered the food, the service was prompt but I had a hair in my food so she had to take it back. So she takes it back... More

I went with the grilled shrimp, which was a great choice. Smiles and nods around the table from everyone's choices. There wont be a lot for you if you're not a fan of seafood.
