My wife and I visited Mayfel's on a Monday at 5:30, a great time to go .No.happy hour, but all bottles of wine are half price. On Thursdays micro brews are $3,and a Bloody Mary bar on Saturday and Sunday. Charlotte and I were met outside the door by the hostess who offered us a choice of seating. Out side dinning, inside the restaurant or in the courtyard. The weather was perfect and we chose the courtyard. Dog are allowed outside and in the courtyard. Several were present, all very well mannered We decided to share a bowl of gumbo with sausage, chicken, okra, tomatoes and rice. A shrimp poor boy with coleslaw and remoulade sauce on bread from Gambino's Bakery in New Orleans. We also ordered "Mama Mayfel's Meatloaf" with fried okra, mashed potatoes, and cornbread. With all bottles of wine at half price we selected Lucky Star Peno Noir for 11 bucks. The gumbo was very good, perfectly seasoned.The poor boy was excellent, the best I ever had outside Louisiana. The meatloaf was a little disappointing but still good and the mashed potatoes were great.The restaurant was not crowded and the service was outstanding. The servers need a dress code and the courtyard could some loving care. Overall a very good dinning experience .
