We started with a dozen raw oysters and hurricanes. The best way to start a meal and it just go better. Excellent food in a friendly atmosphere. Good value for money.

Visited here with the entire family. Found the frog legs to be very good, the children enjoyed their catfish. Priced reasonably for the location and product. Service was good.

Was not impressed with food or service. Unsure if they even cook there other than a bank of microwaves.

Sat at the bar as they were pretty busy. They were out of several entrees we chose, but the Cane River Catfish was great! Service was on point & the drinks were STRONG! Great atmosphere.

We had an oyster and a shrimp po-boy, side winder fries and drinks. All were very good. New type of fries for us. They were also super good.

After waiting for over an hour for a table at Margileaux's (#1 on TripAdvisor), we left and headed to Mama's. So glad we did! This place is definitely underrated. Good service, good portions, fun atmosphere. Seafood dip, pasta, catfish were all excellent.

The seafood at Mama's is always good. We went late in the afternoon of Christmas eve. Even though they were getting ready to shut down, they served us. We got excellent service and food was great.

Very busy place and long wait time. The nice thing about the long wait time was that they asked for your cell phone number and told us it was ok to go walk around town and shop and that they wold call us when our table was ready - which they did, a very nice feature. The appetizer was chips... More
