The jambalaya is so tasty. They do just throw it all in though, so you have to watch out for some bones and fat. The shrimp sandwich is flavorful, but could be bigger. Cute transformation of an older small house.

My husband and I were looking for a new and interesting place to have lunch in Anchorage. We enjoy Cajun food but many places have dry bread and over done po'boys but not the gumbo house. Based on reviews we asked for the calamari Po-Boys...More
