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!!

Stopped here after a long hot day of work looking for a nice relaxing dinner. Despite some of the bad reviews I saw, I took a chance on Broussards... I gambled and lost! Sat at the bar and the place stunk like it hadn't been cleaned in quite a while. Waitress couldn't be less interested in waiting on me. Salad... More

The atmosphere and service were great. I like the bar tables. Food is always FRESH and chef is remarkable. And the deserts! I like catfish, and sometimes Beth gets in crab. Anything with crab is great. Shrimp dishes are cool. Chef Beth frequents our Farmer's Market, and knows her vegies, and anything here is always plated piping hot. I have... More

The shrimp and grits were awesome, and just about the right portion, friends dishes seemed a little small though. Also had the baked brie and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting JBs. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very friendly and provided great service. The wine and drink selection was also on point. Though, I would have... More
