Creole

Creole de Graw specializes in offering Cajun and Creole fusion dishes along with New American and French dishes on its menu. The atmosphere is quite casual and so is the dining experience. The restaurant also offers a range of wine and beers some which pair well with the dishes on offer. These include a range of seafood, vegan and meat based dishes but Creole de Graw is also known for its desserts such as the Key Lime pie. Creole de Graw has crab mac and cheese on the menu which is a favorite with patrons along with the classic Jambalaya. However, it is the blackened chicken which is ordered quite often.

              The food was ok, the ambience was fine. I thought it was a little overpriced for what it was, but the part that really stuck in my craw was that when showing up for a reservation (it was 6pm on a Saturday night, admittedly probably the busiest night of the week) my party of two arrived to a mostly empty restaurant and they tried to stick us at the table next to the hostess station just inside the door. There were plenty of empty tables (a whole section was unoccupied) and I asked for a table by the window and was told that they were reserved for parties of 4. They did manage to find us a table inside the dining area and next to the table I had requested. This was better than the first choice given, but overall this left a bad taste in my mouth, especially since the table I requested to sit at remained empty the entire time we were there. I'm not going back and can't, in good conscience, recommend Creole de Graw to anyone else.

              Our server, Melissa was great. She listened to and paid attention to all details of our order, and she made some good recommendations The value of the meals was good, but the staff added extras, like a 5 oz serving of chicken to jumbalaya and a topping of crab meat to another without increasing the cost, which made the value even better.

              We were driving through the area heading south and were running late. Katelin took excellent care of us and got us fed and out the door very quickly!our meals were excellent I truly enjoyed my crab cake that was all crab meat and no filler as well as my French fries that were prepared crisp - just as I had requested! Will be back again!

              Salmon and chicken were well seasoned and sauces were good tasting. A party had booked a band that was really too loud for the space - make sure you ask in advance whether they have 'live music'.

              Food was great, server was overwhelmed. He was very pleasant but needed to be reminded of items that should have been brought to the table. I assume that the issue was short staffing. This is the first time I have had this experience at this restaurant. Will try again but not on a weekend.

              A bit disappointed that there are few happy hour drink specials. Half priced appetizers are nice though. We shared the DeGraw dip - the fried bowtie pasta was a different twist! Don't expect much seafood in this dip though, it's mostly cheese. The Creole Crab cakes were very good! I chose the grilled Caesar salad w/ Shrimp. Could have been grilled a bit more and the seasoning in the shirmp could have done with much less salt. My guy got the Blackened Catfish. He enjoyed it but was still hungry afterward. There was a 2 piece band and they were great!! We'll be back!

              The food took along time to get. They were very busy and waiters & waitresses were none stop. The menu is not as good for Mardi Gras. Less of selection then last year. If you are vegan or vegetarian, forget it. My friends had hurricanes but glasses were different on 2nd glass which they had to remind them that the usual garnishes were not with drink. That was minor. The help was overwhelmed you could see that but very pleasant. I have been there for lunch many times and yes still slow but after covid, that is everywhere. Maybe next year more craw fish dishes like Louisiana and add the appetizer you did for restaurant week which was a sweet sauce over the fried crawfish.

              Maybe we just ordered the wrong food items...the lettuce was wilted in the Caesar Salad, the before-dinner muffins were stale. When we asked for another batch, they charged us $2.50. I guess I should have complained. And while my salmon was hot, the potatoes were cold. But we did like the atmosphere, New Orleans artwork. Probably won't go back.....

              Went for Valentine’s Day, and it did not disappoint. The food and service were top notch. Would highly recommend to others. Oh, and the gumbo, phenomenal!!

              Loved it. Been saying we were going to go for a while now. Finally got the chance. Very reasonable prices and the food was AWESOME!!! Great service and I really liked the ambiance...would like to go back for dinner and drinks. Very much to its name.

              For Sunday Brunch, the food was good and the service was better. We were well attended to but not rushed. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful about the menu.
