We had lunch here. The wait staff was terse and seemed to be in a rush to get us out of there. The seafood gumbo was not good... too thick. The green beans were disgusting. Everything else was average/below average. There are hundreds of better...More

Personally I, nor the wife, found it as good as it was pre-Katrina. We used to go quite regularly since we both work in the vicinity, (now live out of state), but something has changed, so we probably won't be going back.

Recommend by a local cab journey from French quarter but well worth it as a Brit we had to try the turtle soup. Mains was fried shrimp with fries enough for two. Great food and great prices

Just sayin'! Shouldn't be spaghetti on the front photo...I'm sure it's good but they're shrimp Poh-Boys, shrimp remoulade and turtle soup is the best ever! Beautiful flavor of New Orleans. Should be on your list 😊

I have been going to mandina's since I was in high school. The food has always been fabulous. It is an easy streetcar away from the French quarter! The grilled shrimp Poboys and seafood gumbo are phenomenal.

Every once in awhile, we realize we haven't been to Mandina;s lately, and nearly immediately rectify that mistake. Mandena's is thought of as a neighborhood place, more Italian than anything else. Yet it serves Creole favorites, too, and does it well. I used to live...More

If you are looking for fresh, fresh seafood with an atmosphere filled with local characters, this is the place to go. Fried soft shell crab - yum! Messy (the best kind) poboys - yum! Monday's red bean and rice - yum! You won't find cliche-style...More
