When owner Johnny Carrabba set out on his next restaurant venture, he knew his vision would include the fond memories he had of his dear grandmother Grace Mandola. Grace, also known to the family as Mama, was a Sicilian woman born to immigrant parents in Louisiana. She had a flair for cooking, hospitality, and deep faith.

She was known to make bread from scratch every Saturday for her legendary three-hour Sicilian Sunday lunches; and, her newly established family roots in Louisiana added interesting flavors to her home cooked meals. The entire Mandola family, including her five children and fourteen grandchildren, was regularly greeted in her home with smells of warm bread, well brewed sauces and homemade soups. It was around her table that her family learned the true meaning and value of relationships, friendships and good food. These memories are realized when one walks into Johnny Carrabba’s new restaurant, Grace's.

Food was incredible as always. Chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans are the best around!

I have so much about Grace's and came when it originally open but the food was certainly not the same. I had the chicken sandwich and I have never had a bad chicken sandwich until I had this one. I also tried my friends BBQ shrimp and they were horrible. I am not certain what has changed but the food is not good.

You can’t go wrong with any menu item you choose. The Cajun Stuffed Chicken is my favorite!

The peppery onion rings were a great start to our meal. I loved the tortilla soup too. Dad liked the short ribs appetizer. French fries are thick cut "steak fries".

The food as usual was delicious but the service was absolutely the worst that we have ever encountered. It took over 40 minutes to get some bread and then we ordered but when we got our main meal the person that had ordered soup as an appetizer/part of the entrée did not get her entrée because the waitress did not write it down. So by the time she got her meal we were all finished. And addition, I specifically asked if there were any kind of social distancing meeting at least putting the tables further apart and that did not happen. It’s very disappointing since I love going to Gracies. I did tell the manager/person at the front about my experience and left my name and number but for some reason I felt it wasn’t necessary to contact me.

First time ever going and had heard good things so decided to have a birthday dinner there, what a waste of money. Food was horrible and I’m not that critical but this was bad and i even told them it was for a birthday and nothing was ever mentioned about it again... never had that happen before. What’s the point in asking if it’s a special occasion if you’re not gonna acknowledge it once the guest arrives.

Every thing about this place was great. My family enjoyed their drink, dinner and ambiance. Each person order something different so we had the opportunity to try a variety of meals. We also order several drinks which were made to perfection. Dessert is always a must the carrot cake and salted caramel cakes are both delicious.

Delicious food everything was very well seasoned. The cornbread was a little cold but the server quickly replaced it for us. Very attentive server. I had the pleasure of enjoying the Creole stuffed chicken with crabmeat, mash potatoes and Brussel sprouts.

This was my first time dining here and it won’t be my last !! Thank you Grace’s for such a great experience.

It is always a pleasure to see Todd our favorite waiter. Thursday’s are our hang out night. This time I got to sit at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartenders were very very nice! I enjoyed their company while I waited. I also noticed that you all have my absolute favorite tequila!!

We will be back for our regular Thursday! See you soon Todd! We love you! 🥰🥰🥰
