I pass through this area regularly travelling from my home in New Orleans to my mom's home in Jena, LA. When they were building Roux 61, I thought they must be crazy building a restaurant that size out on the highway - no one will ever come. Well every time Ive passed since they opened the parking lot has been... More

I should have ordered the fried shrimp instead of blackened fish. The huge fried shrimp were delicious, but the blackened fish was OK at best. Portions are big with matching prices. I didn't think the fish was worth it, but the shrimp was the best I've had not right on the coast in a very long time. The server was... More

Great place to go if you're not in the mood for any thing in particular, large selection. Atmosphere is nice and casual,with lots to look at. Our last server was amazing, well worth the drive.

We started with the fried green tomatoes. I have to get them when in the south. The accompanying sauce was different from others I've had, but still very good. I got the Combo of Coconut Shrimp and Fried Oysters. This came with lovely cole slaw and I opted for the sweet potato fries.All delicious. Hush puppies also came with this... More

Our waitress seemed to be distracted by a table of about 20 guys next us! Did not get our salad. Baked potato was cold had to ask for butter and sour cream. The grilled shrimp were seasoned way too much! Will not go back!!!

Let's start from the statement that Is was not the best meal of my life, but certainly one of the best meals I had in the US. I consider the restaurant as one of the most "American" in style I've ever visited so it was one of my aim of the trip to the US. On the first look, the... More

For all the wonderful things that we have heard about this place , it definitely was not what we expected. We paid $15 for basically a large French bread po boy with a few a... More

We ordered the $30+ seafood platter to share and even the two of us couldn't finish it. The softshell crab was not good, watery on the inside and not crunchy on the outside. Everything else was tasty. Our server was a little out of it, and it seemed that several different people delivered our drinks and food. it was busy,... More

This is the place! Lots of very fresh seafood! We sat at the oyster bar and watched the oysters being shucked and grilled. The staff is awesome! Super friendly and attentive. Casual atmosphere.

I recently visited Roux 61 while on a business trip with 6 other colleagues. We arrived around 11:15 so there were plenty of open tables. The place is much bigger than it looks, so even though it got busy by the time we left there was still plenty of room. The atmosphere was great, various animal mounts hanging on the... More
