We were in Columbus for the Pilgrimage. We were advised by several people to be sure we went to J. Broussards. The food was great. I had the pecan pane catfish with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My husband had the pan seared lemon catfish and asparagus. I "made room" for vanilla bean creme brulee.

Mary Broussard and her daughter run a deliciousness New Orleans style restaurant. It is definitely "Date Night "restaurant with white table cloths but reasonably priced. Very low key and comfortable and you never feel rushed. Delicious Pecan Pane catfish and, if the crab-meat appetizer is on the menu ...get it. Steaks are great as is the shrimp and orzo dish!

This was not my first visit to J Broussards but by far the best. Christmas Eve dinner was a specially planned 4 course menu. The chef was careful to prepare my food free of gluten, soy, and dairy. I even had a special dessert. The crowd here is more on the conservative side but this makes intimate conversations easy. This... More

A very classy menu, delicious food with a "come as you are" atmosphere. The "chef" is excellent, and is really a chef!

About 7 friends and myself went here for my Birthday this past Friday night and my experience was one of the worst yet at a restaurant! The service was amazing, which we did not penalize her for in tipping, but the management was horrific. I ordered the escargot (I suggest never getting this appetizer) and it was grainy as if...

I ordered the pan seared Catfish which was amazing. I had cheese grits and broccoli for my sides. The grits were my favorite. The waitress was nice. The restaurant is old with a lot of charm and character which was beautiful. The atmosphere was very romantic, quiet and upscale. The owner was really sweet and friendly when she came to... More

This was the second time going to this restaurant, great food and atmosphere. Would not recommend for young children, there was a small child who was having problems acting right, but throw on your nice clothes and get some great Louisiana food!!!!!

We always enjoy Broussards! Mary is great at the front of the house and Beth rocks the kitchen! Wonderful orzo and shrimp with back and the blonde brownie with caramel sauce and cinnamon ice cream was fabulous!
