Had the Coolinary menu. Since I had tried all 3 entrees on it I opted for the supper menu, namely the pork cheeks over grits topped with french fried onion rings. Absolutely fabulous! The pork was silky smooth and tender beyond belief, the grits creamy and ring added a crunch that was sorely missed in shrimp & grits that I have had before.

The food was inspired; everything was unique, flavor packed and delicious. The service was superb. We dined outside opting for social distancing and the waiter wore a mask. We opted for the Coolinary menu while our friends chose the regular menu. My friend raved about the fried turkey neck and we loved the crawfish boulettes. Chicken sandwich with delicious collards, fried shrimp salad with field greens, wagu burger, and a spicy goat burger sandwich were all enjoyed. We share a slice of carrot cake that was perfect, not too sweet and even the coffee was good (served in a little pot that served two. We will go back!

The meat board was great. Lots of thought and care put into the preparation. We also had the cheese board which had nice accoutrement. We tried the duck, though prepared well didn't care for the sauce. Great wine selection as well. Server was very pleasant.

We had an amazing outdoor dining experience at Toups this past Saturday evening. We decided to go to Toups to celebrate our anniversary and partake of the Coolinary offering. We started with drinks which were perfectly crafted. I took advantage of the Coolinary and started with the Crawfish Bouillettes in a pepper jelly sauce - delicious. My entree was the ribs and potato salad which was enough for two meals. My husband saw Venison on the menu and wanted to try that and he was glad he did. The venison was perfectly cooked and tender. It came with faro and a horseradish sauce. My dessert was the berries and cream which was the end of a memorable meal. All of the staff wore masks and social distancing was practiced outside. We enjoyed going to Toups before the pandemic and with this outside eating, we plan on going back again.

Went out to eat to get a break from the kids and noise of daily life. Halfway through the meal were bombarded by the employees with the television at full volume blasting politics. Not our idea of a nice, relaxing dinner. Instead, more like a sports bar without the sports. If I wanted that, I would have gone to Wow Wingery. After spending that much on our meal for that experience, next time we will.

We had high hopes for Toups based on previous reviews but we were disappointed. The service was poor from the start. The hostess/waitress who greeted us at the door was unwelcoming and rude. Our server was rushed and blunt/short with us the customer. We ordered 4 meals- one was delivered 30 minutes before the other 3. The food when it finally arrived was good. Im not sure we will be in a hurry to return.

The food was outstanding as always, the service, however was not. We had to suffer through an extremely rude waitress (had socks pulled up over leggings) who gave one-word answers to questions, would slam plates down on the table (practically dropped the pork chop entree down), and would disappear for 15 minutes at a time---I had to chase down another server to get our check. To be fair, we had another server bring our drinks & she was very pleasant. I've always been a big fan of the food at Toups, but the attitude of the servers the last couple of times has been "You're bothering me by being here". Hope Mr. Isaac can correct this

It was the first weekend with a new menu in place. I ordered the sweetbreads poutine because it was new. It was covered with gravy, the potatoes were baked, not fried and the sweetbreads were crispy. The cheese curds were melty and good. Nice portion size. Successful dish.

Everything was great—both food and service. Sat outside and enjoyed a nice Sunday brunch. Bottomless mimosas, and their cinnamon roll were both a great start. Followed up with the poutine and the chicken sandwich. Will definitely be back to try some other items!

Isaac,
You had major drama going on in your establishment this past Saturday. The tattooed guy at the bar and serving was bullying the other staff members, including our server. It was so obvious it was palatable. It made our experience very uncomfortable. I even took our server outside after our meal to make sure she was okay. I have been in the hospitality industry for 37 years and that was a terrible experience. My boss ate there a couple weeks back and said the ambiance was tense as well. Need to look at that guy.

Chicken sandwich was excessively salty, didn't even make it through half... creole tomato salad was a hit but not worth the price... Had the shrimp salad a few weeks ago and it was average so I tried again. Oh well.
