We stopped here first after our arrival into Reagan airport. There were 11 of us plus our battlefield guide and we sat out on the patio on a perfect weather day. The food was so delicious. Amazing for something north of Louisiana. I called ahead and both the servers and kitchen were ready for us. Fast, efficient service with amazing... More

Brianne was fabulous and the food was great. It was a great quiet Monday night meal and we enjoyed her company and the lack of a rush. We hit a good portion of the meal and all was good. Great wine special too. Follow the ratings and get to this place if you can.

This is always a great place to eat if you like New Orleans cuisine. On weekends when the weather is nice the street is closed and music is provided.

I hadn't been for a while but went in for Manassas Restaurant Week. So, with that deal I got an appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. I literally took half of everything home (except the salad and dessert and I should have taken half the dessert but I couldn't stop eating it). All the food was good, but the cranberry bread... More

We go to Old Town Manassas often and have tried most of its restaurants. We had tried Okras before and were not impressed, decided yesterday to give them another go. I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and it was absolutely delicious. The shrimp were fresh and bursting with flavor, the grits creamy, and the sauce heavenly. Served with yellow squash... More

I ordered the Chicken St. Charles, and it was described slightly tastier than it really was. A bit too salty for my taste ... which brings me to another point: I couldn't help but notice that there were no salt and pepper shakers on the tables, nor were there packets of sugar or sweetener. I ordered unsweetened iced tea, because... More

Discovered this place just walking downtown. The whole experience was delightful. From the hostess to our server everyone exhibited true southern hospitality. Billed as a Louisiana Cajun restaurant, it met all my expectations. We had the Shrimp and Grits and the Shrimp Po'boy. Both tasted wonderful and authentic. We ate outside bad listened to the live music. Was like being... More

After being seated outside, we waited 12 minutes but no one came out. I went in and there was only 1 table inside. I had to ask for a server. It was another couple of minutes before she greeted us. We were almost ready to leave. She took our drink orders and suggested Shirley Temples for the kids. A nice... More

It's really refreshing to find a top-notch restaurant in Manassas. I love the relaxed atmosphere of Okra's and the great food. My favorite is the crawfish ettoufee . . . not too spicy, but spicy enough. It's crazy, but I get cravings for the ettoufee! The crab & corn chowder is to die for! I've taken visitors to Manassas here... More

Found this gem and was very impressed. The service was great. A young lady named Tiffany served us and she was very good. Knowledgeable about the menu and patient. The food was great, the collared greens are a must try! I had a salmon dish and my wife had the jambalaya. Both meals were terrific. We sadly did not have... More
