Exceptional in every way…loved they recognized our anniversary with a dessert flag & no charge for 1 dessert. Reason for 4 stars is we ordered the peanut butter pie & got the key lime…my husband never complains so wouldn’t tell our waitress ♥️

Nice Tuscaloosa Restaurant . Probably the best. Fish prepared perfectly. This is a great place to entertain your best customers. Lots of convent parking . Easy to find. You will be pleased if you have not been to this restaurant.

Our server served but she was NOT friendly at all!!! However, we wish we remembered another servers name who stopped and took initiative to light the candle on our table even though it was near closing time. But because we were taking our last sips after David open some bubblies she saw it was out and made our ambiance around us even better. I really wish we could let that second server know that the small things matter A LOT. Made a memorable difference! Thank you!

Evangelines is my favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa. I love most everything on the menu. I was not pleased w the new roasted chicken salad I chose yesterday. I should have gone w the tried and true salmon salad divine. I’ll be back soon I hope!

Evangeline's has delicious food, and very good service. The location is in a non-congested area, and there is adequate space between the tables inside so you can enjoy some privacy as well. I highly recommned!

This was my second time dining at Evangelines and it did not disappoint! The menu had changed since I was last at the restaurant which is always nice to see that the staff continues to evolve and update their menu through the year. The food came out hot and you could tell it was fresh and made with finesse and skill. I went on a Tuesday night and the wait staff respectfully informed us that the kitchen was backed up and our food would be out as soon as possible. This was not a problem as the atmosphere of Evangelines is very delightful and it want very easy to hold a conversation as it wasn’t too loud although every table had customers. Surprisingly after our meal the wait staff gifted us a gift certificate for the wait we had during the kitchen backup, I saw this as very generous and you can tell that the staff here really cares about the guests experience.

Excellent place to eat and socialize. Food is wonderful. Service is impeccable. Rarely have to wait when reservations are made. Never disappointed and it has become a great favorite of hours despite the 1 1/2 hour drive each way to get there!

Evangeline‘s is a hidden gem! You definitely need to make reservations due to a small dining room and it’s popularity. Food was excellent, from the appetizers (fried green tomatoes) all the way thru dessert (crème brûlée, and banana Foster’s cheesecake). I highly recommend!

Best restaurant in Tuscaloosa. The menu is outstanding. The crab cakes are great and the filet mignon is always very good. For the price I do not think you can find a better restaurant. This restaurant is great to celebrate special occasions.
