we wanted to try something different during our trip and this was definitely it. service was a little slow and our waitress seemed like she was on speed or something, but that could be because they were so busy. i was going to get a turkey club sandwich because i don't like spicy food but i wanted to try something new so i got the crab cakes. they were good, however, i could only eat one because it was too spicy. there is "regular" stuff on the menu for those that do not like spicy food.

My Grandad used to always say, "Walk slow and drink a lot of water". He was from the region that this restaurant's theme comes from. With that in mind, this is not a place to go if you are in a hurry. Our wait (without reservations) was around 45 minutes and it took an additional hour after we ordered before our food hit the table. We were talking with the folks at an adjacent table and they waited almost an hour after ordering as well. Normally, I would knock a place down a couple of notches for the wait but the staff was attentive and drinks were kept full during that time. The food would rate excellent and the prices were on par.

Very tasty low-country cuisine (we had shimp po-boys, cheese grits and dirty rice) and our son had a Dixie burger (BBQ) which was delicious. Waiter was very helpful. Would definitely return and recommend the restaurant for sure!

One waitress, one cook, and a 2 hour wait to eat after we ordered. When our food arrived the order wasnt right but we were so hungry we didnt want to wait any longer for it to be fixed.Food was over priced and mediocre. Don't waste your time or money.

Gumbo's is kind of small, and located in the center of town. There isn't much parking, so if you are there in season, go early.
The menu is a mixture of dishes with an emphasis on Cajun, and everything we had, from the shrimp appetizer to the pie for desert was delicious. The service is a little slow ( this was off season) but the place was cute and had big front windows to watch the foot traffic while you wait.
If you're in the area, don't miss it.
