“Amazing food, service, and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011 via mobile

I've been going here for almost 4 years now and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing here. I usually get the bourbon shrimp, which comes with an amazing sauce. I've had the seafood gumbo a couple times which is so yummy and full of seafood flavor. For the entrees I usually get the Sunday chicken because it is AMAZING!!!! It's the best baked chicken I've ever had and it comes with an amazing corn bread pudding, which is like a savory bread pudding made with corn bread and corn. And for the dessert the bread pudding is definitely the way to go. It's so good! The prices are definitely worth the food. I will continue to go here. Oh and the owner Eddie is the nicest owner I've meet. And he is really friendly and personable.

“Fabulous Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

After having frequented several of the restaurants on Laurel St (which there are some nice ones, no doubt) I was delightfully surprised when I found Creola just driving by. We decided to try it out and we absolutely were delighted with the restaurant and the food. The gumbo was so good that I would have ordered another bowl for dessert had I not already eaten an appetizer (bourbon shrimp), gumbo and the shrimp etoufee and soft-shell crab. If you're in the area and love cajun food, this place is absolutely worth a visit.

“Wonderful food - Worth a trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2009

We have eaten here several times over the past 8 years, most recently this week. Every time the food has been wonderful.

This week, the four of us had their rack of escargot, oysters Rockefeller, lamb, etouffee, duck, and filet. Everything was excellent.

Small wine list but good (and affordable) selections. (Kendall Jackson is an under-appreciated choice!)
