Three of us ate here & all had one of the gumbo dishes. The waitress advised that a 'large' bowl was a really good size portion & we would only need one side dish each. When the gumbo arrived, we were disappointed to see that the bowls were not very big at all & we really needed more than one... More

Never had creole food before, and it was quite a good experience! Food is good and at a reasonable price. The menu is quite wide so you can definitely find something you like. The place is warm and comfortable!

I have heard about Okra's for awhile but had not visited before. When I I finally got the chance to go I was not disappointed. The food was delicious. I had the blackened catfish and my date had the jambalaya. Service was great. Everyone was very friendly. They also seemed to have the proper balance of checking in on you... More

Close your eyes and transport yourself to New Orleans! Forget the fancy bar drinks and order the Abita beer. Food is terrific. "Nawlins Fare" items can be ordered in two sizes. Can't go wrong with the Blackened catfish or pork chops . Oh yes, order a side of the collard greens, corn bread and fried chicken livers! Save room for... More

I went to Okras with my family not knowing anything about Cajun food, I'm sorry I have never tried it before because it was the best. My server Theresa was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and suggested that I try gator bites and crawfish popcorn among other things. I left very full and happy definitely will be back.

I was in town and passed by this hidden treasure. The food was excellent but the customer service was by far what made my whole visit. I was treated by Lauren like I was a old friend. I will definitely be back and ask for Lauren. Thank you for making my surprise outing so enjoyable.

I had the fried oyster PO boy and a cup of the seafood gumbo. This is definitely going to be a favorite restaurant of mine! The reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because the definitely are reserved when it comes to spices...True Louisiana food is more in your face. But it's still great food!

we visited Okra's recently and experienced another terrific meal. As usual the service was excellent and the food terrific. The presentation of the meal showed real style. My only complaint was with the portion of the restaurant where we sat. It was near the door and a bit chilly. I plan on asking to sit in a separate part of... More

This so-called Cajun establishment is in no way Cajun. The muffuletts are terrible and no way the way they make them in New Orleans. Why don't they purchase the olive spread from New Orleans and the bread and have them shipped up.

Okra's is overrated. My mother-in-law is from New Orleans. We took her there to surprise her with some authentic Cajun food. We were all not impressed. Was nothing close to what they make in New Orleans! Food was dry. Service was great. But, the chef needs to take a course in authentic Cajun New Orleans style. No pun intended.
