Ones that caught my eye were the signature Gumbo (traditional dark roux, Holy Trinity which is onions, bell peppers, and celery that are the base ingredients for the dish, Andouille sausage okra, and rice), Blackened Catfish served with red beans and rice....this will be my next order, the Oyster Po Boy, the Boiled Shrimp Remoulade Appetizer, Crab Cakes...(always looking out for these on a menu!), and the Bread Pudding with Kahlua sauce for dessert. There was a second location off of Old Seward in the Dimond area that closed a few months back. I asked the manager if they had plans to reopen elsewhere, but he said that remains up in the air for now until business starts picking up again. Copies of their menu are available in the restaurant as it looks like their website is no longer active. This is a nice addition for the downtown area where Cajun cuisine is scarce and limited to a couple of places.
We were visiting Anchorage and I really needed something reasonably priced and delicious. We came to this place at 3pm and it didn't not disappoint!!
We ordered the kitchen sink gumbo and oyster Po' boy. They were both really awesome! We had 8 pieces of oysters they were fresh and the batter was crispy and not too thick! The gumbo was in the right richness and tasted really great, not too salty not too light!
I wish we can come back more often!
Great service and simply amazing! I love New Orleans gumbo and this place definitely lives up to it. Hope to stop by in the future!!!

came in close to closing. were treated with the same respect as someone not being a douche and coming in late. calamari po boy was awesome, friend got the gumbo and it was superb !
Order the jambalaya!
We were a little hesitant to order Cajun food this far north, but were happy to find the jambalaya well done and full of flavor! We ordered takeout which was quick and easy. The service was great! We'd definitely come back!
Delicious gumbo. Great spice and plenty of hearty ingredients. Gotta love that kitchen sink gumbo - get me a bucket! Well worth stopping by. Prompt, friendly service - can't ask for anything more! Plus the price is just right, highly recommend - went twice in less than a week!
Get the chicken gumbo!!! It's great! I'm from Houston and travel to Louisiana frequently, so I know good Cajun food :) and this is the real deal! Not to mention it's super affordable for Anchorage prices and fast service.
The owner is also very friendly and pretty much gave me a second bowl of gumbo for free! My favorite part of gumbo is the roux + rice, so I was eating that part first. When I was about 2/3 done with my bowl, he came by and said "my bowl was too dry." Took my bowl and came back with it filled to the brim! Hello leftovers!
This is only my second time here but definitely not my last. Have tried the angel hair pasta with chicken, shrimp and sausage and the chicken gumbo. Both are totally delicious. Had bread pudding the first time, it was great, got it to take home the 2nd time and it was burnt, rather disappointing.
Great food and portions size. Felt like I was in New Orleans. Gumbo and delicate fried catfish was delicious.
First time here. Really had a taste for the red beans and rice but had heard their gumbo was very good. So got a bowl of each and I wasn't disappointed. Add a jalapeño corn muffin and a coke and I was out of the for . They'll be seeing me again
This was delicious and fast. Excellent service. We had the gumbo and shared the crab cakes. It was a perfect lunch on a cold and windy day. Very reasonably priced.
The best gumbo and jambalaya that I've eaten in the USA ! The prices are reasonable and the quantity too ! Is a must to try the kitchen sink gambo !
Good stuff! Reasonable prices, chill atmosphere and a friendly owner. Make sure to grab a jalapeño corn muffin to chow with your Gumbo.
