“Best food court meal ever - outstanding fried crawfish tails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We were attending a conference next door in the convention center. Skip the convention center food and come next door to the Riverwalk mall and eat here. It's a fast food place, but they fry up the food fresh. It's inexpensive for what you get and just as good as any other fried seafood I had in NOLA. You have a view of the river and can do some souvenir shopping in the mall while you are there. Great place!

“Best food court meal I've ever had”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Our family of 4 ate here in the food court at the Riverwalk- and loved it. Seafood chowder, gumbo, and red beans and rice were all very good. We never expected to get such good food at a food court!

“Seafood....seafood....great seafood.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

What more can I say than the title I've assigned? A mainstay in the French Quarter and a great culinary experience! Try it you'll like it.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

It's in the food court in the Riverwalk mall, and lots to choose from. Got the seafood platter; catfish, oysters and shrimp, really liked the coleslaw it has an interesting flavour. Highly suggest this restaurant. The seafood was very tasty service was friendly and courteous.

“So happy it was freshly fried...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We visited the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and visited the awesome River Walk in New Orleans. This particular Mike Anderson's was on the River Walk amongst dozens of other food places. I chose this place because I knew it would have fresh fried foods.
The menu had a selections of crab claws, hush puppies, whole catfish, boiled shrimp and seafood platters! I was not expecting too much from a food court but this place delivered! I had a light snack of hush puppies and crab claws and I was very pleased.
