Mulate's The Original Cajun Restaurant Reviews
A definate must do! I would say more of a grandma in the kitchen throw it on the plate atmosphere with great local music and dancers to watch! If you want dessert... their bread pudding is absolutely the best (while a bit different than most) other desserts? Skip they're trucked in! Rustic Warehouse setting and fabulous service... Maybe Emeril could get a few pointers here!!! :)
Good food and very generous portions.
Cajun Warehouse dining. Really good cajun fare. Desserts are mouthwatering. Music starts late but worth the wait. The costs seem a little high.
Every time we travel South, we drive out of our way to visit Mulate's. The food is wonderfully Cajun. I love the Mushroom Smothered Hamburger Steak and my husband always has the spicy Duck. The live bands are awesome and there is a small dance floor that is always full.
Loved the grilled shrimp w/ twice baked potato! Yummy! Kinda pricey but so good!
by Cathy R.
Crab stuffed shrimp is amazing! Love the dancing and music entertainment...a must visit in New Orleans!
by Jordan H.
Get the Zydeco Gumbo, very good. Also the Zydeco bread was interesting if you want to venture out for something different. Love the atmosphere.
by Camille W.
DO NOT get the BBQ Ribs..it tastes like meat loaf; however, the bread pudding is good.
by Marjorie P.
Great fun for the family with live country music, food good but a little pricey!

Crawfish dishes are delicious, but service very ill-attentive...
by Chase H.
The Ribeye was absolutely amazing! Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined Mulates would serve such an incredible steak! Absolute Win!

Grilled alligator is a must!
Awesome food and had a blast dancing!
by Cathy G.
Keep eating so you don't get asked to dance, unless you can keep up with the energetic little old man!
by Suzanne M.
Oh, MY GOD, Get the Aligator Alfredo.
by Brett V.
Not a lot of spice or kick so if that's what you looking for ask for it. Good service though and love the onion rings
by Joshua K.
Get the Cajun smoked oysters. They are stunning.
by Mark S.

Best muffuletta I had in Nawlins

Fried alligator soothes a hungry stomach
by Elmer T.
Good food and good music
by Charlie F.
Dinner and dancing. A fun change of pace from the craziness of Bourbon Street. Food good; mixed drinks not too strong, however, even with extra shot...Go with beer or wine :(
by Julie M.
Their bread pudding is to die for...save room for it!
by Jamie B.
Good food, but a little pricey especially for a kid's meal.
by Crystal L.
The Mulate catfish is amazing. Topped with crawfish étouffée. Simply delicious.
by Marc S.
Awesome food, great atmosphere. Had the blackened fish of day (Mahi mahi) was cooked perfectly and delicious.
by Todd S.
Freaking AMAZING FOOD! Love the live music, dancing and overall atmosphere!
by Melanie B.
Crab cakes were ok...too much breading in them. Veggies were good.
by Natasha B.
Amazing food. Awful service and awful expensive
Bloody Mary is nice and spicy!
Go here with your mom if you just moved to town like 6 hours ago.
by Matt R.
Not worth it at all. $22 for a barely mediocre shrimp po-boy and $7 for a cup of bland gumbo. Waste of money and time in a fantastic culinary city.
by Brian S.
The étouffée and gumbo are delicious. A must have no doubt.
by Olivia S.
Go for the music, it was the best thing here...food was mediocre, service was average. Key lime pie tasted a bit old, charge $.99 for bread.
by Nancy R.
Food is way overpriced, and not very good. Our meal was cold when it came out. Very disappointing. I'll stick to my own gumbo from now on.
by Ed C.
Bad food, over priced- highly fucking disappointed.... 2 times in a row things have turned out to be a high priced turd- Jesus!!!!!
Fucking Christ... Really? A cup if soup for 8 bucks? Is this entire city affected??
Not the best
by George S.
Frog legs, rice-sausage, meat pies, and bread pudding. Eat them.
by Aubrey C.
Great Alligator Po-boy!

Great Cajun gumbo !
by Terry W.
Cajun sampler appetizer! $50.00 split between myself and 2 other people as our meal and it was worth every penny!!
Very expensive. So very filling. Yummy but I feel bad for my parents. Expensive and I couldn't finish half of my meal! Music is too loud I might mention. BUT yummy like I said. Idk if its worth it.
by Braeden W.
The atmosphere was great and so was the fried alligator but staff and the rest of the food was severely lacking.
by Amber G.
The Gumbo is excellent.
by Justin C.
Fried alligator its a must! And the Bloody Marys ROCK!
by Carlos U.
Big fan of the meat pies. Alligator was too rubbery for my liking.
by ian e.
Amazing food, worth the price.
by Ethan W.
Solid muffalatta sandwich and pecan beer. Come for dinner for the live music - the stage is near the back of the restaurant.
by Traci D.
CTIA attendees! The blackened alligator is a must try here! While you're at it, why not learn how MMS marketing is more effective than SMS? Text CTIAMMS to 21534, Msg&data rates may apply
Grilled Alligator Pasta is awesome.
by Eric R.
Red beans and rice were the best. Followed by the gumbo then the crawfish étouffée last. Also the bowls are huge and the cups are tiny.
by Melvyn H.
Lump crab au gratin was delish!!!
by Tristan M.
Casual atmosphere, great food. The gumbo is outstanding!
by Bob C.
Try the tilapia po boy! :)
by Violet F.
Great atmosphere and good food.
by Kathryn K.
Obsessed with the fried shrimp po boy
by Lexi L.
The service from our waitress Stephanie was terrible, she never failed to be rude. Loved the food and music, but her offensive behavior was enough to ensure my friends and I will never return.
by Katie C.
Great location, huge drinks but my muffaletta was greasy and if you don't like cheese its tough luck. They are premade and won't accomoadate your allergies. Super expensive for what it is.
by Clare P.
Be brave - try the alligator and frog legs
by Valerie B.
Love the meat pies and zydeco bread. Bread pudding. Great !!! Fun atmosphere
by Wendy K.
Gumbo pretty good to.
by Keith B.
Try the fried crawfish tails, great
by Keith B.
Blackened shrimp au gratin!!
by Kevin W.
Amazing food! The rum sauce on the bread pudding was beyond words. My daughter's fave dish on our trip to New Orleans was the gator pasta with blackened gator!
by Caren M.
We had a table of 12 and everything on everyones plate was cold. Fail
by Jake B.
If they have the blackened alligator bites on the menu, I highly suggest you try them.
by Michelle D.
Zydeco gumbo and cajun boudin: fantastic.
