my wife wanted to eat here after a Broadway in New Orleans play. I found it to be good food between a grocery store and a pet store in a strip shopping center in Metairie. we had two 8 year old girls with us and they had a good time with the Crayola box and paper that was given to... More

Jeff's has an attractive exterior (in a strip mall), and the small interior and bar area are also beautifully designed, with oil paintings of New Orleans locations. Our waiter was friendly and did a good job. I ordered the Fried Shrimp Plate, and my companions ordered and shared a Seafood Platter. The meals came with an enjoyable wedge salad. We... More

Came back here for a second visit back to New Orleans for a job. Took my co-workers along and we all enjoyed the food, service and the price. So if your in New Orleans you have to find this place. It in the corner of a strip center, worth the effort.

We also tried their mushroom and Swiss burger, cooked perfectly. It took 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge our presence, even though there were only 5 tables full. Once the server came , over food came out quickly and was great.

Our server told us to stay away from the Jambalaya because it didn't have meat in it. So we ordered catfish instead. The catfish was delicious. They also had a side item called Bleu Potatoes which was like a baked potato with blue cheese, bacon and green onions- out of this world!! Our server even let us sample turtle soup... More

Love the food!! Jeff's Creole is tucked between Rouses Supermarket and 50 Fathoms. The stuffed bell pepper soup is awesome!! Had the grilled redfish and veal topped with crabmeat for dinner, both were delicious! They offer a nice wine selection to pair with the food. Did not expect the nice atmosphere because it is in a strip mall but it... More

We had been here for lunch about 3 years ago and remembered it as being great. We went on Saturday night with high hopes and were somewhat disappointed. The food was just average, the service was slow. There were only 4 tables of people in the place and the waiter kept disappearing for long stretches of time. Maybe it's better... More

My family and I went to Jeff's Creole Grille for dinner for the first time at this excellent restaurant in Metairie. We were highly impressed with the service, the ambiance, and of course the food. The food was reasonably priced and the portions were huge! I highly recommend the BBQ shrimp as an appetizer. I ordered the pot roast which... More

First let me say upon arriving at 6:15 the place was completely empty. That made us a little nervous. However, we stayed and had some really good food. We started the night with the blue crab appetizer. The dish had a great taste, but lacked on the crab. I would have preferred paying a little more for more crab meat.... More

It looked very nice inside. I was a little confused why noone was at the waiter booth waiting to seat us but then I quickly learned that there was only one waiter. I ordered the shrimp wrap with sweet potato fries and whipped cream and my friend got the shrimp delight salad with balsamic vingerette. We enjoyed both. Its about... More
