“Great place for gumbo!”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

The gumbo sizes are massive. The small is 16 oz, and full of goodies. Good service. Nice little place.

“Gumbo your way”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

They make gumbo in many varieties and style, most of which you haven't even thought of. If you like gumbo this is your spot

“Delicious meal just off the Strand”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

We went to the Gumbo Bar late on a Saturday night after a Mardi Gras parade on the Strand, it was still very busy and we had to sit at the bar. All of us ordered a different gumbo or po'boy. Everyone shared their meal and I can honestly say that everything was wonderful. Although sitting at the bar had it's drawbacks, we got to watch them reheat the Gumbo and talk with the guy running the gumbo line which was fun.

It's a small place so it's worth it to call ahead to find out if there is a wait.

“Overpriced For What You, Poor Food Quality”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

After much aticipation, we finally were able to go to the Gumbo Bar, after hearing so much about it. The decor and location were great, but after looking at the menu prices, we were disappointed. Two ice teas were $4.80, the large bowl of gumbo, $13.99, the large shrimp and oyster po-boy was around 8.99 and that didn't include french fries, which were an addtional costs, around 2.00. The gumbo was very tastless, with no flavor at all, only a few shrimp, one piece of chicken and mostly juice. The poboy only contained a few shrimp and the oysters were cut into halves, so mostly bread and pickles. Then came the final bill, $31.00, which we could have eaten somewhere else. Needless to say, we will not be back
