This restaurant is pure Cajun cooking at it's finest. The atmosphere is wonderful. Bring your appetite because the portions are large and each bite is delicious. If you want a REAL treat order the raisin rum bread pudding. It's big enough for 2, but we didn't share. Also their Bloody Marys are exceptional. My husband used to work in the... More

All of the food here is authentic!! I especially love the lobster bisque!! Large portions!! Full of flavor!! Nice atmosphere!! But you need to plan your arrival so you don't have a long wait!! But if you have a long wait - it's worth it!!

My husband and I love eating here. It serves the best Cajun food outside of New Orleans. Even the atmosphere is reminiscent of Bourbon Street. The value of what you get for what you pay helps make Gumbeaux's our favorite restaurant.

Great dinner! Staying in the area on the way down south-I'd consider staying here again just to come to Gumbeaux's! Great ambiance, ate in the bar area. Tuesday's are $.50 shrimp night, so we had 20 shrimp done 2 different ways-all delicious, but the fried are some of the best I've had. I had a bowl of seafood gumbo for... More

Food is excellent and service is very good. The only downside... you cannot make reservations and your entire party has to be present to be seated.

Gumbeaux's is a jewel. The food is excellent. The service is absolutely incomparable. Arrive early the line grows quickly and come early. The bread pudding with raisin rum sauce is 'too die for'.

Well, the banana foster was great, but the food absolutely terrible. I only agreed to pay for the banana foster, but nothing else.. Even the drinks weren't that good. Why people stand in a line to eat this crap I have no idea.. Go to Fabionos food is much better, and you only have to walk a few stores down.

What can I say? The food is great the company is great. It's really hard to get in and is generally overcrowded but if you get there early it's worth the time.

Located in the "old town" section of Douglasville, facing the railroad tracks...this is the absolute BEST Cajun place around. My daughter used to come home from Baton Rouge just to eat Cajun here. Having eaten my way through about 30% of the menu, I have not found a clinker yet. I will say that the food tends to be spicy,... More
