Not seeing a lot of reviews, I was skeptical, but another of their locations got good reviews, so I checked it out and was thankful, because the food is really good here. I had the lunch portion of house rubbed chicken and my colleague, the bronzed trout. Each were well seasoned and tasted wonderful. The quinoa side is excellent and... More

I just had dinner here and was oh so happy! I had the Thai rib stack appetizer with the sweet and spicy soy sauce. They were so tender and flavorful. My entrée was the beef sirloin topped with a mushroom and balsamic brown glace. It too was very tender and the glace was out of this world. I didn't leave... More

On my latest dining experience at Zea's I started out with the appetizer of the Thai rib stack. They were great and had a sweet and spicy soy glaze that was finger licking good. My entrée was the 12 oz. rotisserie rib eye. It was grilled to perfection and had the best flavor. I chose the side dishes of roasted... More

Great rotisserie foods served in a very congenial atmosphere. Specials each day change so be sure to check them out. But don't forgo the Thai ribs...choose your sauce! Corn grits are not to be missed.

The food is great. The barbeque ribs are excellent. You won't be able to eat it all. Bring your best appetite. The service was also excellent. Easy access by tram.

I love Zea's. I go there every time I visit New Orleans. Their red beans and rice main dish that comes with chicken and sausage is fabulous but very filling. If you wanted a lighter lunch, do the side orders of red beans/rice, corn grits, and a 1/2 salad. Best meal ever!
