We were in New Iberia on vacation and I went to Trip Advisor to seek out a place to go eat at for that night. After reading many reviews we settled on Bon Creole Seafood because of the high rating it had and sounded like a laid back place which is what we were in the mode for. The reviews were correct! It is a hole in the wall type of place but the food was wonderful! I had a chicken/sausage gumbo that was fantastic! The potato salad was good and went well withe gumbo! My husband had fried fish like shrimp, cat fish, & for a little extra a fried soft shell crab. He said it was the best soft shell crab he had ever eaten!!!! That's saying a lot since he grew up eating those things along the Texas Gulf coast.
The restaurant inside and out is nothing to write home about but was fun to look at the old collected itemsut around us. The place was clean and service was very good for most part. There is a young lady there that is not the cheerful soul of the others but its not that important. The major thing for us was the food. It was the star of the show!
The other reviews are correct in that the outside is very faded and the sign is hard to read. I took a photo of the inside so y'all can get a feel for the atmosphere there. It's a small place and no one dresses up. No table clothes here and food comes on paper plates etc. but if you want local food done well then this is for you!
