    I am from Baton Rouge and have been meaning to check out Hugo's. The food was good. The crawfish bisque could have used some age on it. The vegetables were crunchy but the overall taste was good. My wife had the Sea Bass and rated it excellent. I had a shrimp poboy and it was good. The shrimp were not the best and certainly not fresh, but it was tasty. I thought it was good but not great and we will repeat to try out some of the other dishes. The service was excellent and the other patrons were very friendly and we had a good time. I would recommend to anyone to eat here.

    I had oysters (mix of offerings), tuna tartare, seafood gumbo, salmon salad and vanilla gelato. The oysters were really good, especially the Hugo version which included jalapenos. The tuna tartare was probably my favorite dish.

    A dollar for toasted 2 hamburger half's.......really!!! Yes that is what we got at Hugo's Sat while spending a $100 for dinner!! VERY CHEAP on their part! Simple don't ask for bread! The seafood is always the best. That why it is our favorite restaurant! Don't be in a hurry as it takes a long time to get your entry once ordered. Service people are great, so don't be afraid to go for super seafood----great selection! We will go back. Can't beat a dollar for blue points on Mondays----skip the bread.

    It's always a pleasant meal whenever I go to Hugo's. They have very good oysters, our always favorite Hugo's Oysters (melted cheese with jalapenos), excellent soups of the day and their seafood gumbo, and lastly great tasting Po Boys. For the most part the service is also excellent, and during a bad day is still very good. The staff is friendly, energetic, knowledgeable... all the characteristics found at great restaurants. Well recommended.

    This was our first time at Hugo's, and we will definitely be back! Our server (I wish I'd gotten his name), was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. And the food was fabulous! 2 members of our party got the filet, and they both said it was better than Ruth's Chris, which we went to a few weeks ago. Someone else said the calamari was the best she'd had in a few years. Even the dirty wild rice, just a side dish... I could eat a bowl of that alone. While the appetizers came out quickly,the entrees did take a bit of time to come out, but it was an insanely busy Friday night - every single table stayed filled the entire time we were there. So we were happily forgiving of that. A great night!

    The service was great. Our server, Crystal, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. However, the food was just fair - nothing great. I also expected it to be a nicer place since it is a sister restaurant to C&S Oyster Bar....but they were playing football games on various tvs TOO LOUD. Again - it wasn't horrible. But to pay $140 for dinner - I just expect more.

    Our second time at Hugo's was even better than the first. Our waiter was great, way more polish than you'd expect in a neighborhood place in Roswell. My friends almost licked the plates from their trout entrees. We loved the jalapeño margarita. The salmon salad is near perfect. Fried okra pods are special---fresh and tender. Don't sit inside--it's a noise riot in a bad way. Outside porch doesn't have much ambience as it's on Highway 9 but noise level doesn't assault like the interior. Valet a nice touch. Go there!!

    My friend and I drove there after work and ordered oysters & shrimp. They were so tasty we ordered another dozen. Our waiter asked if we wanted the shrimp hot or cold and we didn't have a preference so he had the chef cook 1/2 hot 1/2 cold. He scored some big points for that! Thank you for a pleasurable dinning experience.

    I have dined here several times & always enjoyed it. My most recent visit was not as enjoyable. When one of the people in our group was finishing their meal, they found a hair in their food (unfortunately, they found it when chewing). These things happen; but, the response is what I was upset about. The waitress apologized and said no more. The check was for the full amount; however, the waitress gave us a gift card (no denomination specified) and said we could use it our next visit. I paid the check (leaving a full tip feeling it wasn't the wait staff's fault). Only then did a Manager come over to see if there was anything she could do. It was a bit too late by then.

    Hugos is an OK place. The service we had was wonderful (ask for Crystal!). The food is solid, but really made me miss New Orleans. It just isn't quite there. The po boy was a good sandwich - they said they used Leidenheimer bread (the ONLY bread for a real po boy) but they don't - it's a soft, gummy roll. Not a bad sandwich, but not a real po boy. The gumbo was also OK - not bad - but thin, the roux was not sufficiently prepared. If you are selling New Orleans that hard with the menu, decor, etc., then I'd like to see you deliver on the food, too.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    I read a lot of reviews before choosing Hugo's for my wife's birthday, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't a great spot for a nice birthday dinner. For an oyster bar, I was disappointed. Their oyster selection was odd; I've always heard the "months ending in 'r'" is a myth and it's all about where the oysters are from (cold water). Theirs were from the Gulf, Virginia, and PEI...during the summer?! We had some PEI oysters and they were the size of quarters, disappointing. The fish was good, which helped make our night salvageable. The dress code is listed wrong, we were dressy casual and we were WAY overdressed. The servers wear jeans and there was a guy next to us in shorts, a tank top, and a baseball cap. I would say just "casual."

    Great food - loved the grilled oysters and the Rainbow Trout. A little pricier than I was hoping - most appetizers are $12-$14, same for the wine by the glass - but good food and service. It was a more casual ambiance than the price - but good service and great food.

    We loved the food here! Oysters were fresh and fish (we got the trout and grouper) were really good and we loved the drink selections. The only complaint is the location. This place is right on the street, or highway, and I wouldn't be thrilled if I were seated outside on the porch, which is not fancy or shielded from the "highway" . I would def. go back...for an indoor seat!

    My wife and I joined another couple for dinner at Hugo's Saturday night. We made reservations on Friday and were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated immediately upon arrival. The bar was full as we're the other tables, there was a nice vibe to the place, lots of energy. I cannot remember the name of our waiter but he was very tall, friendly and made some good recommendations. When he heard we were interested in the special appetizer of scallops, he said that they were running low and quickly put in our order. Excellent wines, beers and cocktails, the appetizer was very tasty and the entrees were delicious and served quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Hugo's, a very nice dining experience!
