Someone in our family always gets food from the Gumbo Pot. It's very good here! The other consistent thing we find is that we try to get alligator meat and they're almost always out...just be forewarned if you want to try it!

Stopped in while touring the Original Farmers Market and had soft shell po boy sandwiches. Excellent flavor, beautifully cooked--a great fix for our southern yearnings!

We tried two meals - jambalaya & creole mustard potato salad (as a side). The first one - big and tasty. The second one - poor. In addition we got muffins which were just average. Overall - average but definitely worth trying as food is cheap.

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
