The famous Gumbo Pot lives up to its name. The Gumbo here is great, full of flavor and definitely filling. The service was great and the outside patio atmosphere was great as well. This place was definitely one of the highlights of our New Orleans...More

This was an impromtu stop for late dinner. We sat outside. We had the pasta Jambalaya which was delicious with the right amount spice. After reading the reviews, I guess this place is a hit or miss. We were lucky.

We ate meat ball Poy Boy and some crispy fried fish at the Gumbo Pot. Both were good with ample servings, and masses of fries & other accompaniments. A highly filling satisfactory lunch.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
