“New Orleans in Manassas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2008

My husband and I were looking for a nice little restaurant in Manassas that wasn't part of a restaurant chain (i.e. not a Friday's or Applebee's). Okra's in Old Town Manassas was recommended to us. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived at a well decorated place that felt as if were back in New Orleans. The server brought us a wine list that was so diverse and wonderful that after one glass, we ended up purchasing 2 bottles to take home. As for the 'Nawlins Fair', as the menu describes the food, it was as close to cajin creole cuisine that I have ever had outside of Bourbon Street! I had the Crawfish Etouffee and my husband had the Chicken Saint Charles. My Etouffee was perfect! Just spicy enough to wash down with a sip of wine. Both meals were large portions, but we had enough room for a homemade dessert! Along with the food, the server was attentive and polite; my water glass never got below half full. Okra's is the best kept secret in Manassas. We will be returning this weekend for the food and the live music they have every weekend!

“Great food and music!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2006

One of the best restaurants in Mansassas coupled with the best live music in Manassas. Thursday, Friday, and Sat eves they have live bands normally in the area of Blues. The food is great, whether it's the Port Orleans salad or the Jambalaya or the Gumbo are always good. Great place to celebrate Mardis Gras and I think I had Tabasco Mixed Grill that night: Grilled Tabasco marinated pork chop, chicken breast, and gulf shrimp, served with Andouille pan gravy, and red beans and rice. Nice selection of wines and beers. ---
