Husband had gumbo and loved I got the garlic mashed potatoes as another diner had recommended. We both very much enjoyed and device was great from arrival at door!

Had lunch with friends. Gumbo all around, everyone thought it was wonderful. Place was almost empty but we couldn't get anyone to serve us. I hear that this is not normal, must have been just one of those things. Then we couldn't get our check. Patio was busy and it was dog friendly.

Our first night out on our honeymoon we walked to Kenny D's because it was close to our condo. I started with a pina colada which was so very delicious! I ordered the grilled mahi-mahi salad. It wasn't bad BUT my husband ordered the blackened mahi-mahi with garlic mashed potatoes & green beans and I must say it was AH-MAZING!!... More

Service was poor; apathetic staff. Spilled drinks were not mopped up. Floors were filthy. Fish (grilled mahi mahi, grouper) were good, a bit too salty. Rice was hard and unedible. Kenny (owner) explained that it was the old, dried out rice from the edge of the pan. We were given a free dessert; good key lime tart.

Okay, so this place is what the locals refer to as a dive. And it is, but the poboy's are just like New Orleans! They even get their french bread shipped in from the Quarter. And you can tell. Crispy on the outside and soft/chewy on the inside. We really enjoyed our lunch. Price was reasonable and looks like they... More

Stumbled into Kenny D's on New Years as they opened their liquor bar for the first time in 17 years! Congratulations, that's a big deal in Florida! A cozy little juke, with plenty of local flavor, these transplanted Cajuns do a great job of making you feel at home. You will love it if you are an LSU fan or... More

Stopped by for a quick bite and found burger and fries tasty but nothing special. Decor a bit run down probably due to some construction around the side. I didn't dislike the restaurant but would not go out of my way to eat there again.

Thank AlanCAL
