Absolutely Fabulous. Food was amazing. Larry our server was perfect. Was there for my mardi gras 60th birthday. Amaretto sour was delicious. Will go again if given the chance

The food was good, but it was not worth what we were charged. The fried shrimp dinner came with 5 shrimp, so you would assumed for $29 that they are jumbo shrimp. No, they were medium size shrimp. We also ordered the Crab Orleans and the Broiled Snapper....both meals were good, but neither meal was worth what we paid. Overall,... More

The food was very good here! I loved the mix of cajun and italian. Believe it or not, I got lasagna and it was delicious. We sat in the lounge area on a saturday night and they had live music, which was a plus. My only complaint was the service. Our waiter was very nice, but apparently our ticket got... More

First visit back to Ernest's in a couple of years and we were very disappointed. The food was average at best and service was same. We will not be returning. The prices are steep for what you get here . Ernest's used to be a nice place to eat in years passed but it isn't anymore.

The lounge side of the restaurant has a nice comfortable feel to it. The live entertainment on a Saturday night was also very good. The staff was on top of things. They did show some animosity among themselves openly with the guest present. The bartender was not very nice to our waiter. Our waiter asked if the bartender had a... More

We were there with the Commodore Club for the independence bowl game. They had a private dinner that was out of this world. The flaming gumbo was the some of the best I have had. Service was excellent.

We (three people) had blackened redfish, trout and steak for our three entrees. We also had potatoes, rice, asparagus and broccoli. Our appetizers were the marinated crab claws. They were all outstanding. They also prepare Red Snapper five different ways so you really have outstanding choices. The bread was some sort of bread with cheese and butter. It was excellent....

A friend suggested I try here since my husband loves steaks. We wanted to go somewhere different than usual for our anniversary. It didn't disappoint. The service was A number one. The staff was nice and friendly. Last but certainly not least the food was awesome for lack of a better word. My husband said the steaks was one of... More
