Great food and drink, good service. No problem that we had to call to reschedule 30 minutes later (meaning arriving at 9.30pm). Overall great experience.

Great service, friendly staff & delicious food. A wee mix up with bar bill, double charged for a round of drinks. Was rectified when we highlighted their error.

Gumbo was just fantastic, from the 60's music & great atmosphere. Ordered deep fried veg & pickles to share as a starter - very different & delicious! Then onto the mains - l had shrimp Gumbo - which was a sensation for my taste buds - the sweet dough bread was a perfect contrast to the spicy Gumbo! My partner had steak & chips, & he loved it! ♡

Service was great, food was AMAZING. Had a great time. Downside was the fact that the booking I made through Quandoo was not on their books when I arrived there. They had no record of it at all. Luckily they were not too busy and we got a table anyway but beware booking with Quandoo. I would advise phoning the place direct to make sure you get your table booked.

Great ribs, amazing cocktail (aviator). Fish and chips were very good, Gumbo was okay. The Mac and cheese side was huge and yummy. All the portions were very generous and the place had a good atmosphere. Will definetly be back.

I've eaten here before. the steak is delicious. Just don't shake any hot sauce on your Jaleno's by accident. I almost needed the fire brigade! Catch Damian on the floor as your server if you are lucky. Very friendly guy, who has an answer for everything. Will not hesitate in returning here... great food, great service.

Cocktails were lovely and the veggie Gumbo with cornbread was delicious. Music was good and there was a decent live band in later on. We had our table all night with no bother.

Really enjoyed Bar Gumbo. Great food, particularly the catfish bites and jambalaya, with massive servings for reasonable prices. Frozen cheesecake dessert was peculiar but enjoyable.

I had dinner and drinks with friends on a Saturday night. The place was busy but still cosy and lively. The service was great, very attentive waiters and quick. The food was very good and affordable, I think we paid 25 each for a dinner and several drinks. I will definitely go back there!
