Reliable for a great meal every time! The service has always been good as well. The downtown location by the railroad tracks adds to the experience.

I ordered grilled redfish ($24.00). The meal came with 3 slices of bread and whipped butter. I could also choose the sauce (beurre blanc) and one side dish (mashed potatoes). The mashed potatoes were good. The fish tasted like grilled cardboard...overdone, no flavor, just a stiff slab. (I wonder if it could have been frozen fish...maybe even cooked frozen). Not... More

this well established restaurant is a very special place with great ambiance, and even greater food. A menu that is not too extensive, and has delightful choices for every diner. I think this is by far the best restaurant in Hammond, and in all of Tangipahoa. Lunch dinner, small plates, desserts, excellent wine selections, nightly specials and great cocktails.

4 adults and 1 child all left happy, full of extraordinary food, cooked to perfection, with promises of returning within a few weeks to try more of their chef's innovative dishes. Classy enough for a dress up date, good enough to impress your boss and tasty enough to cause this Trip Advisor to say, " Tope La served 5 star... More

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
