Great customer service

Food was good, but lacked a real creole zest. Server was excellent, very attentive. The decor is old and bathrooms not real nice. Fried oysters were excellent

Gumbo as good as any I've had in New Orleans... Crawfish étouffée not bad either. Start off with a Sazerac cocktail and you'll be ready to let the good times roll. Here's a tip for something that's not on the menu – they serve cornbread. They also serve bananas foster. Ask your server for the cornbread with bananas foster sauce... More

Good food and craft beers makes an overall enjoyable experience. Popular place that get packed quickly. Get there early to get a seat or sit at the bar, have a few Abita beers while waiting.

Family had a wonderful meal at Okra's - food was authentic Louisiana and wait staff was superb. Management aims to please and decor is warm and inviting. Plenty of nearby parking - highly recommended.

Went with wife for lunch while kids in day care. We come to Okra's every now and then as we like the place but it's a bit out of the way for us. Okra's really needs to just offer boiled crawfish with corn and potatoes. Simple enough but I never see it on the menu so am I just missing... More

Friendly, helpful staff. I usually stop for supper--the food offered is all good. First time here for lunch--I tried the blackened catfish wrap w/side salad. Just enough heat from the Cajun spices--delicious! A good choice for someone watching their Weight Watcher Points! Love their deviled egg appetizer and their cornbread is divine--but alas, could not afford to spend the WW... More

Great selection of food, from reasonably priced wraps and sandwiches to elegant dinner entrees and delicious specials. A good plce to bring the family for lunch or dinner, or to enjoy drinks at the bar. I am a frequent customer and highly recommend you try the Abita beers on tap, my current favorite is the Wrought Iron.

I consider their oysters, alligator bites, cornbread and a cold IPA a lunch I must enjoy often to maintain my personal high level of joy!

We were looking for a different eatery and run across Okras, I had the Pasta Diablo very spicy but yummy, the Gumbo was also very good.

I love New Orleans style food. I had the jambalaya with shrimp and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will go back. I see why The First Lady had to go there. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff.
