Food was excellent and pleasant ambiance. They get busy with long lines, so arrive early for dinner. Highly recommend.

The Gumbo Shop is an awesome restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter. Our meal was the best I have had in some time. Relative small with a lot of New Orleans flair.

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

From what I can find online, they aren't open, but I would suggest calling to be sure [(504) 525-1486] as there are quite a few that will be open that day.

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.
