My husband and I came here for lunch. I had the house special which was blackened catfish topped with crawfish etouffee, rice, and grilled squash medley. My husband had the shrimp gumbo and Cajun pistolettes. By far, this was the best Cajun food I have...More

OMG... if you're looking for good seafood, especially gumbo, find this place. After two miserable experiences at Benno's and Farley Girls, we found The Gumbo Bar. We got there 30 minutes before they close. They still cooked our food to order, seafood platter and gumbo....More

My husband enjoys the gumbo here. I have a shellfish allergy so the menu is really very limited on what I can eat. I tried the hamburger, but I just didn't like it. I guess the best way to describe it is a frozen burger...More

My husband and I are frequent customers and part time residents. Little Daddy's is one of the first places we head when we get to town. Absolutely love to sit and at bar and visit with the very friendly staff, enjoy a glass of wine while we watch the delicious preparation of each bowl prepared with fresh ingredients. I was so very disappointed yesterday to find a new menu and NO muscles!! No one prepares them like you do with the wonderful marinara sauce and hot bread. I regret to say that you've lost us. Although your other dishes are all wonderful, there are other places we can enjoy fried dishes and gumbo. I really hope you'll consider putting muscles back on your menu. Not to long ago we enjoyed visiting with a couple that drove from Houston on a regular basis for muscles. I know there will be others who share my feelings. That dish was unique to the island!
