We were having lunch at Gumbo Shop exactly a year ago and went back for more. We had Creole combination platters that unfortunately turned out to be just mediocre. The ambiance is much nicer if you manage to get a table at the courtyard. Will...More

I get that you have to give tourists what they want, but jeez, tourists, why do you even come to New Orleans if you don't want the real thing? The drinks are well made, but the standards (gumbo, crawfish etouffee, red beans & rice) were...More

We ordered the gumbo and the combination platter. Everything was piping hot and delicious. We also had the pecan pie for dessert which I would highly recommend. The only thing that keeps me from giving a 5 star review is a slightly mechanized feeling to...More

Had the set menu which was a great intro to a lot of local dishes. The service was excellent. Would recommend the brownie pie as a dessert, so good!

Was very disappointed to taste my overly salted food. It is SEAFOOD. Seafood comes from the sea and doesn't need to be salted.

Wanted to try Gumbo and got the Gumbo trio, it was fabulous! We tried a few other places while in town and this was the BEST! Enjoy!

Be prepared to wait in line for this little gem! The wait is worth it, however - there's a great choice of local food at very-reasonable prices. I've eaten here several times over the years and the quality has been consistently high. The Creole platter...More

We ordered the spinach & artichoke dip, followed by jambalaya. Both courses were delicious. The service was excellent and efficient. We had not reserved a table and were led to a table in the courtyard without waiting at 7:15 on a Wednesday evening.

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

From what I can find online, they aren't open, but I would suggest calling to be sure [(504) 525-1486] as there are quite a few that will be open that day.

Description
Established in 1948, The Award Winning Gumbo Shop features a wide range of New Orleans cuisine at its finest. Enjoy fantastic customer service and great food. Patrons are also welcome to order from our full wine list including 30 Wines by the Glass.Gumbo Shop is located at 630 St. Peters Street, 1/2 block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter. As the name implies, gumbo is a fixture on the menu, but our menu also features Creole and Cajun inspired dishes that represent New Orleans' truly unique cuisine. Gumbo Shop was founded in 1948 in a former French Quarter home built in the late 1700's. The building represents a typical French Quarter layout with central courtyard and former kitchen in the rear. For the past 20 consecutive years, Gumbo Shop has received the "Best of New Orleans" best place to eat gumbo from Gambit, a local publication that relies on reader polls to determine the winners in all categories.
