Great steak!

We tried the ribeye and it was the best steak I have had in Mississippi! However, the mashed potatoes and carrots were pretty disappointing.

We got to J Broussards early, but were pleasantly surprised to find that the bar opens 30 minutes before the restaurant. The place is really nice and the staff we encountered were super friendly. The drinks from the bar were great and our appetizer of steamed mussels were also. My husband and I both ordered the shrimp and grits. They... More

Fish is excellent, double thick pork chop with amazing seasoning, steaks come with choice of tasty sauces. Hot sour dough bread as well as homemade salad dressing to go over the crisp, cold dinner salad. Service is the best in town and you will feel as if you had a gourmet trip to the Cresent City. Also open for a... More

This was a return trip to this restaurant for us and again our food and dining experience exceeded our expectations. The wait staff is attentive and helpful without being intrusive or pushy. The menu has a wide selection to choose from along with nightly specials. I had veal again while my husband chose a steak instead of his usual fish... More

The restaurant says it has New Orleans cuisine, but the menu also features creations of the chef. They had four different varieties of catfish alone. Mine was incredibly tender, best catfish I've ever had.

Quiet and quaint restaurant with five star food and service that you would expect from much larger cities! My husband and I traveled there to celebrate a birthday, restaurant met and exceeded our expectations on all levels! Service was great, attentive but we were never rushed which is important to me.We will be happy to return to try other items... More

Awesome, quaint restaurant downtown. Parking is very limited, however, it was worth the walk. I had the duck and it was delicious. Waitress was very friendly and patient.If I ever come back thru Columbus, I will not try any other place. THIS IS PERFECT!

I have eaten at J. Broussard's many times and it is always delicious. I love all the fish dishes, the veal is amazing, and the desserts are wonderful. It has a nice, adult atmosphere. You really feel like you are in New Orleans. I always look forward to going back!!
