We ate at the Port of New Orleans location in Riverwalk Mall. You order at the counter, wait for your order to come up, then take your tray to a table. There is a nice view of the Mississippi River and all the shipping traffic and you are in air-conditioned comfort. You also have an option of going outside - no tables out there, but there are benches.

They let us try the gumbo before we bought. We like mild spicy, but not what New Orleans sometimes serve that can burn a hole in your stomach. Anderson's gumbo was good as is, and they had seasoning to add more "heat" if you wanted it. The sample had two shrimp in it, but my bowl had one. My friend his the jackpot with 4 shrimp in hers.

I got the Fried Shrimp Po' Boy, seasoned fries (included), the seafood gumbo, and a large Coke, which came in just under $20.

The Riverwalk Mall is closing soon to undergo an extensive conversion into an Outlet mall. They will reopen in Fall according to signs posted in the mall. It was unclear as to whether this location of Anderson's would remain open for cruise ship passengers.

Learned of Mike Anderson's in Gonzales, LA by chance & went looking. Good quality, well prepared crawfish. I had the Crawfish 7 (crawfish prepared 7 different ways). Good way to get a taste without being overwhelmed with quantity although, I still had leftovers. Deep fried items (crawfish & hush puppies) were excellent; oil was fresh & hot enough to produce excellent results. Seasoning level was excellent & that includes salt...it was just right.

We were leery of mall food but very hungry; we gave Mike Anderson's a chance and were surprised and delighted to find that the seafood (combo plate) was very fresh and good. Would definitely eat there again.

The food was average. The service reminded me of old and rude New Orleans of the 70's & 80's. Back then, rudeness in the tourist business was the norm. Well, they welcomed it back. The oyster poor boy was OK but not the best poor boy the city has to offer. New Orleans has much better food than this and much more hospitable people.
