The food deserves more then five stars for the crawfish cornbread alone. You are foolish if you don’t try it.

Love the place and the food and the service, But, the noise was deafening. If we weren’t able to relocate to the out door patio we would have had to leave

I was visiting from out of town. We went to superior for our last dinner experience and everyone was so glad we did. The server Jay was excellent very informative and helped us choose really good selections. When I return superior is definitely on the list.

Our party of four enjoyed the food and drinks. But the NOISE! The acoustics are horrible. The"piano man" that people were literally screaming over to be heard. And it got louder and louder to the point where our ears hurt. Hire an experienced acoustical expert and follow their advice. Problem solved.

We waited over 45 minutes for the raw oysters. The waiter was apologetic but it was just too long. Then another long wait for main courses. This was on a Wednesday night.

The reservation was for 1:15 but we had to wait about 10 more minutes. The server was prompt and took very good care of us. He had to continually come to us to apologize because the kitchen was taking so long on our food. In all, we waited about an hour for our main course. It was well worth the wait but some folks may not care how tasty it is but more about waiting. We WILL be back!

S-L-O-W. 1pm on Monday (Memorial Day). The place was moderately busy - not slammed. Waited 10 minutes for our table, waited 15 minutes for our waitress to take a drink order and another 15 for our simple drinks - draft beer and a frozen cocktail out of a tap - no fancy mixology involved. We had just stood up to leave when our drinks came. So we've been in the restaurant for over 30 minutes and we're just getting drinks served. We ordered a half dozen char grilled oysters as an app. I ordered a sandwich and my wife ordered a salad with steak on it *with the change that NO tomatoes or onions come on it*. We waited about another 30 minutes and everything came at the same time. And - my wife's salad had a skewer of steak tips on top - with tomatoes and onions on the skewer between the pieces of steak. She was starving so she ate the oyster entree while her salad was re-made. My food was acceptably warm, but not what I would call hot. If we had shared the oysters, as we planned, my food would have been colder than it should be by the time I got to it. Eventually, her salad came and yes, it was re-made, at least the steak skewer was (not sure if it was the same greens, but that would be ok). But it took another 20 minutes to do that. Obvioulsy the steak wasn't put to the front of the line. They did take her salad off the tab. I don't mind leisurely dining and if you keep refiling my drink I can be amused even if the service is slow. But this was ridiculous, an hour and a half for a relatively simple order?? And it wasnlt just us, a table of 6 or so behind us had the same problems. This was the 2nd chance for Superior Grill. We had eaten there a couple years ago (pre-COVID) and the service was about the same. The excuse that day was the system was down and everything was done manually. I couldn't tell the difference between that visit and this one.

We made a reservation for 6 people at 9:30pm(earliest available) we didn’t leave until 12am. One of the people in our group didn’t get her entree until 11:45pm. 5 of us got ours at 11:30pm so she had to watch us eat our meal while she waited. The food tasted different from the first time we visited which was two days prior. It was pretty disappointing.

Great spot for some delicious seafood away from the French Quarter and in a beautiful part of town.

Sazeracs were incredible, the chargrilled oysters were amazing, and the entrees were so good I was dreaming about the perfect consistency of my grits as I slept that evening.

We went on memorial day weekend and it was busy- so be sure to get a reservation in advance or be willing to wait, but either way it was well worth it

We were seated on time. Our waitress did not appear for 15 minutes. It took another 15 minutes to receive our wine. Another 15 minutes to receive our appetizer. Our entree’s arrived 30 minutes later. It was obvious the staff and kitchen was overwhelmed. The food was good but we will not be coming back.

The fried alligator app was quite possibly the best I’ve ever had, my date complimented also.
Her main was the ‘Catch of the Day’, a Grouper filet which She didn’t complain about, but didn’t eat enough (probably less than half) for me to believe was enjoyable.
I had the Blackened Fish Napoleon topped w/crawfish etoufee’, sides of corn maque choux the fish was great, but the etoufee’ was the consistency slightly more than water, the corn maque choux & whipped potatoes were just a runny mess. The dish was very visually unappealing & seemed to have been prepared in the fashion of S-O-S, I would not have served it. Whomever was responsible for presentation or quality control failed miserably IMHO.
While I’ll continue to enjoy & patronize Superior Seafood, I won’t order that again under any circumstances... Mac😎

I LOVE coming here. It is one of my favorites when I used to visit, and now my favorite go to when I have friends in town. I was VERY disappointed in the host, Venus. It’s unfortunate she started off our get together with friends with such a poor attitude, especially at someplace I’ve only ever experienced great and kind service. However, our server Nathan, was amazing!!! overall we had a great time and the food and drinks delightful as usual!
