Not like New Orleans Seafood! DOESN'T LIKE IT EDIT DINER FROM JACKSON • Papanmama • 1 Review I am home grown New Orleans! We were so excited when we heard Monte's was moving to Byram and so very disappointed when we ate there 10/11/2014. We were looking forward to good Louisiana seafood and that New Orleans's bread pudding they advertise.We... More

First thing this restaurant has moved to Byram MS. The waitress input a seafood crepe as a chicken crepe so order came out wrong. She didn't realize there were two crepes on menu. Also input a small plate stuffed shrimp as a regular stuffed shrimp. The crab cake is not a Maryland style and is gummy. I read the other... More

Special occasions are not their strong suit. Let me start by saying that our waitress was a pleasure and that was the only thing pleasurable about this experience. We made reservations for Mother's Day at 12:30 pm for a party of 9. We showed up with 8 and we walked thru the door at 12:25 pm and the place was... More

We ended up at Monte's after we stopped for the night in Byram, MS. It is right off I-55 and is probably as good as it gets in this area, but has a limited menu, average food preparation and service, and seems overpriced for the location and quality. Chef Monte has a nice background story and visits table side, but... More

Moved to Byram MS close, go south I55 to Byram exit on frontage road. Wonderful seafood crabmeat pasta. ANGEL hair pasta with alfredo sause loved by daughter on child menu. BREAD PUDDING IS BETTER THAN NEW ORLEANS WE HAVE HAD. Highly recommend. HAVE BEEN EATING HIS RESTAURANTS SINCE THE 1980's

I was in the area, February 3, looking for a place to eat. I read some online reviews which sounded good. However when I drove up to the place the place was empty, looked as if they had closed the place. When I called the number I got a voice mail stating they were unable to answer the phone.

Had lunch with a group and ordered the special. The gumbo was too salty, the lettuce on the salad was old and wilted and the red fish was covered in a thick sauce that was way too heavy for a light fish. Service was good but the food took a very long time to be prepared and the restaurant was... More

We were the only customers at 6pm on a Friday night, which should have been our first clue. On a positive note, our server did a good job. Popcorn crawfish was ok as an appetizer. A big deal was made about the quality of meat, but my ribeye was a thinly cut piece of meat smothered in some cream sauce.... More

Monte's Steak and Seafood Restaurant is a wonderful jewel of a restaurant that should not be missed! A delightful twist on the usual fare prepared by Chef Monte.
