The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is it has a smaller gumbo selection than when I came last. The chicken and andouille gumbo is awesome

Not sure why it took me so long to write a review since I dine here on every single trip to new orleans. Gumbo is good, so is the boudain. Drinks are on point as well

Nothing less than amazing, authentic Cajun cooking. The recipe to everything they serve is in their cookbook...no secrets here! You bet I bought it! I look forward to getting back there again.

Had the combination platter so I can try three dishes at once. All were delicious. But nothing really jumped out at me. We went at 6 pm. No waiting. By the time we are half way done. There was a long line

We had a wonderful experience at the Gumbo Shop. I had gumbo and my husband had one of their specials (bbq shrimp pasta). Both dishes were quite good, though I would recommend the gumbo over the pasta. Our server was FANTASTIC! He was efficient, friendly,...More

Sorry, not sure. We just walked in and waited about 10 minutes but I seem to recall others going ahead of us, so perhaps they do.

I would suggest you view their online menu. Just Google Gumbo Shop New Orleans menu and it pops right up.

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.
