We only toured the gardens which was $10 each but worth the money. This is a bar in one of the old aeries. We ate lunch in the restaurant and it was amazing. All the food is fresh and cooked to order. Our daughter had a hamburger which she said was the best she ever ate. It was an inch thick and seasoned and cooked perfectly. My husband had the special which was excellent corn maque choux topped with wonderful collard greens and a perfect blackened red snapper filet (not overly blackened). The server suggested the eggplant and crab so I tried it. It was out of this world. Perfect lightly breaded and lightly fried eggplant rounds layered and piled high with the most fresh lump crab I've ever had in one dish. This was drizzled with a thin rich white cream sauce. Whether you are in the area or have to make a special trip, Houmas House, gardens, store, and restaurant are worth the visit!
