I saw this place but had already eaten, so today I went back to try the Seafood Gumbo was good but not what I expected, the corn bread to much sugar the mustard potatoes where good need to try New Orleans to compare will be there soon. The food was good and tasty.

I'm really surprised to read some of the recent poor reviews for The Gumbo Pot here. I have eaten at the Gumbo Pot many many times over the last 16+ years, and I have never had a bad meal yet. Between the two of us, my husband and I have tried nearly everything on the menu, and it has all... More

I think if a place states they sell gumbo then they should sell gumbo and not something that that tastes like Campbell's soup. I even asked the person at the counter if the gumbo was file gumbo. I was instructed to get the seafood gumbo because it was file. I received a bowl of okra slop with three pieces of... More

Food was no good. Bread was dry. Gumbo had no flavor. You will be very sad if you eat here. It's not good. Look at my photo and judge yourself.

The food was a taste of New Orleans in California!! You have to try the mixed fried platter with the shrimp jambalaya as a side. The cornbread muffin that comes with the meal was awesome. Generous serving size and freshly prepared shrimp, oysters and catfish.

We were enjoying a day at the Farmers Market/Grove and decided to eat lunch here. We had a taste for fried fish so we picked this spot. Oh what a disappointment! We had a platter with fried fish, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread. My cornbread was so hard I could not eat it. All the other food... More

Looking for a great taste of Louisiana flavorful cooking, then PLEASE go to Farmers Market and check this place out!!! It was especially beautiful to see they have main dish options that did not contain pork!!! Definite Options to Order: Jambalaya, Vegetarian Rice and Beans and a side of their Green Salad!! I am still having great dreams about their... More

I have been eating at this restaurant off and on for many years both as a casual visitor to The Original Farmers Market and as a person who has done business at the market. Today I was a casual visitor and had lunch. I had two complaints about the meal, one I had the Grilled Eggplant Muffaletta and it wasn't... More
