Great food & service, pre “Tips” concert.
Had a table of screaming children and oblivious parents, on top of an already noisy Mardi Gras crowd.
We’ll wait until Lent before we return.

The food was great. The service was great. It was really busy and noisy but they honored our request for a quiet area and it wasn’t too bad. The only complaint I have is that I ordered 2 bowls of spaghetti with butter and Parmesan for my kids. I get that it was off menu. But it shouldn’t have come to $18 for the 2 bowls. That’s crazy! Just passing this along to other parents. Otherwise, a great meal!! Oh, and we got happy hour pricing in the main dining room (not just at the bar!)

Loved this restaurant! Excellent food and service! They bring a loaf of fresh bread and real butter to each table. It's amazing! We also enjoyed the char-grilled oysters. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back.

It was a terrible day for grilled oysters. They were small, poorly seasoned, and inconsistently cooked...overly charred or barely cooked.However the herb crusted redfish was wonderful! Served on a bed of puréed potato’s and beautiful spinach, everything was extremely flavorful. The side house salad was delicious, also. Service was good, but we did get our dinner salad before our appetizers, so the timing was off. I loved the to go container. It was a small plastic type (probably recyclable) and not a bulky paper or, god forbid, styrofoam container. Kudos on that! Warning, it was pretty loud during happy hour, even though we were well away from the bar area.

One of our friends has very specific tastes... management went out of their way to make it right when she was unhappy with her meal.
Everyone else was thrilled with theirs and I was so impressed the service and attention we received. Would definitely recommend!

We have a wonderful experience at Superior Seafood! Our server, Becca, was really attentive and did so well with our group of 14. For many of us it was our first time at the restaurant, and we're already talking about when we'll be back!

Lots of energy in the place and very well run. The drum was excellent but the bacon-wrapped andouille shrimp was overdone, leaving a burnt taste that overpowered the shrimp and sausage.

We asked for a table on the porch and it was the best! We were entertaining friends from out of town. The oyster appetizers were wonderful. The reason we did not give 5 stars for the food was the sauce on my fish was not really hot and the same was true of my husbands red fish. Otherwise the flavor of the red fish and catfish napoleon was good. We were not impressed with the service and have had better wait staff in past visits. Our waitress seamed preoccupied.
Overall the experience was good though not as good as we would have liked. Our out of guests enjoyed their dinner and we will return again believing the service will improve.

This is my third time here, and it definitely was a different experience then my previous trips and not in a positive way. Waitress seemed annoyed with us, didn’t check on us, never brought an appetizer we ordered, and didn’t offer more drinks. The food also was not as amazing as it was in previous visits, it was such a disappointment based on other visits.
