We had not been to Tope La for several years, my wife just did not care for the food at one time. But, we decided to give it another try in late October. We were celebrating our anniversary. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I tried the steak medallion plate. The portions may have been a little small,... More

Our favorites: pasta bake, salmon and artichoke shrimp stack. Don't miss the alligator appetizer and the white chocolate bread pudding.

Tope La has versatility. Lunch and dinner are always good. Dress can be casual or formal. There are both booths and tables. I've eaten many meals there, and have always enjoyed the food and service. Tope La also does excellent catering.

Business lunch and very impressed by the menu, decor, food and service! 3 of us and I'm the tourist so I asked for a local place "a cut above" casual dining. My associates didn't hesitate and we wind up here. Ambiance is dressy casual with a touch of elegance brought out by the dark wood and mood lighting. Very hip... More

Tope La has a nice atmosphere and generally has good service. A lot of their dishes tend to he very heavy - cream sauces and fried - and they recently removed our favorite chargrilled oysters, so our "go-to" is gone. They have a very limited selection of white wines by the glass. It's a place we visit occasionally, and generally... More

Okay, so I picked this restaurant because of all the positive reviews I saw. The first thing to come was the complimentary bread and butter, nothing special there, not even very good. However, the meals my mom and I ordered were very tasty! I got the crab cake sliders and my mom ordered some sandwich with pork. Both tasted amazing.... More

A wonderful place for a celebration! The brunch menu was extensive and tasty. We all enjoyed our entrees and mimosas. The waiter Mark was very attentive even with a full restaurant. Manager Erick was so wonderful that we took a picture with him!

Tope La ( Not sure what it means ) has been serving 4 star food and service in the Hammond area for many years. Menu ALWAYS has a wide variety of offerings and daily specials. Portions are more than gregarious and many can be shared. Bar area is very nice. Their Sunday brunch is excellent. Pricing is VERY reasonable given... More
