The waiter was nice, however everyone else received bread upon being seated. I was never given nor asked if I wanted bread. As I am signing my check the very husky owner or manager in a Nimbeaux's shirt walks right passed me and did not even acknowledge me but went to the elderly couple behind me that arrived well after...

I had visited Nimbeaux's when they were at there old location so it has been many years since I ate their food. I was running errands on a Friday (fish day in Louisiana) and decided to check out their new location. It had been raining heavily all morning so I hoped to fine a parking spot close to the front,...

Not as good as on 1st visit. I had the crawfish etouffee again and it is still short of the mark. Still bland, lots of rice and etouffee sauce but not many crawfish tails. The sauce was thick, cold and had a dried out film (like it had been sitting a while). My wife had the small order of fried... More

Visited Nimbeaux's for the 1st time today. Clean, good service, good food, a good working lunch place to eat. A very large Cajun menu selection. Had fried catfish & butterflied shrimp--both excellent. Don't miss ordering heir homemade potato chips as one of your sides--a "must try." The crawfish etoufee and fried crawfish were a little bland and short of the... More

Last night we ordered a seafood platter, a large crawfish poor boy and small shrimp gumbo Side salad and extra hush puppies. What a waste! I just put most of it in the garbage. Salad was a pittance-smallest I have ever seen. Gumbo had a good flavor but nothing in in!! Thin as water?!! And a tiny cup of rice!... More

Not your same old Cajun seafood. They use the lightest breading for their fried foods. Not all smothered in batter. You can actually taste the food. All of it is good. The flavors are always tops and the service is always down home. The owners are their almost always there and they are friendly and care about your experience.

My husband and I love sitting down to eat here for lunch. Good home cooking. Fresh, good seafood and sides. Love the shrimp stew and potato salad. Both my boys love the crab burgers when they get to go.

I went to lunch with my mother. I knew I was having seafood for dinner, so I decided to try something else. The Cuban sandwich was an unexpected delight. Roasted pork, ham and cheese with a special sauce, it was gooey and very satisfying. I was really glad the waitress asked if I wanted the half Poboy, as I could... More

This restaurant use to have great fried Fish. The last time I went the fish was Tastless and the service was worse. My grandson could not eat what they called Chicken nuggets (all of two tiny chicken pieces). My fried fish plate was very small for the price. I gave the fish to my grandson and just didn't order any... More
