GOOD LUNCH

To be fair, I had chicken livers the day I was there so I cannot compare it to NOLA, but they were really, really good.

We had a great time. The food was amazing. I had an oyster Po Boy and seafood gumbo and my wife had a pork chop. Both were perfect.

I was in Manassas for 10 days for work. Tried several restaurants, but this was by far my favorite. Attentive and friendly staff. Great gumbo. I also had a po'boy which was excellent. And the price was great. I recommended this place to everyone else I was in Manassas with and they also enjoyed it. It would have been better... More

Best time is early evening and it is over the top during Fat Tuesday, live music and awesome Louisiana foods. It is the place to go to get your Cajun on. it was a bit crowded for an intimate dinner. However on an non-festive holiday, it a great place for couples.

2nd visit to Okra's Louisiana Bistro and love it. The food is authentic to New Orleans style cooking. Great food, entertainment, and customer service.

Another restaurant, trying it heart out to be New Orleans. Good honest attempt. I ordered appetizers, since Virginia shares Louisiana's love of oysters, ordered them. Deep fried served in a bowl with green onion straw underneath, very nice. The shrimp were OK, had the combination shrimp and oyster po-boy also, nice, wasn't a po-boyby any means but good all the...

Local yocals like going here for happy hour and catching up with the single crowd for the atmosphere. Couples frequently go here for 1st dates, so I've been advised. Why? The place hums with animation and people being their gregarious selves. The food, in my opinion, is just OK. It's not bad, but isn't over the top in quality either.... More

This is a good place to listen music at weekends, get a drink, and have fun with friends. Close to the Old town Manassas, a lot of parking lots free.

This restaurant is small but sassy. Great food, good sized portions, and a friendly atmosphere. The outside seating area is a great way to enjoy Manassas' Old Towne vibe on a nice day - have a hurricane and a huge portion of muffaletta and enjoy. While those of us with a seafood allergy don't have much to choose from on... More

Nice find, great atmosphere, good wine and cocktail list, unpretentious food with a good selection if your not into alligator, okra or grits. We had a live band playing Saturday evening which really ramped up the atmosphere. Service was a little slow for our party of ten, but this place was packed, go early for a table anytime after 7.00pm... More
