I ordered fried green tomatoes not so good very greasy. Then I had a cheese pasta ravioli ok. Wine was good but man it was expensive. I would recommend skipping this place and going to Deno’s. Great appetizers and better wine selection. Ended up with...More

This is a very nice place. It is genuine Cajun cooking. We eat here at least once during our annual Winter Park visit. Highly recommended.

We’ve been to Fontenot’s a couple of times before and they never disappoint. Absolutely delicious. Hubby had the chili seared scallops and I had the Cajun pasta. Both were very good. We each started with a cup of gumbo which was nicely spiced and a...More

Ended up stopping at Fontenot's when another restaurant was not open for the season. Glad we did. My daughter and I split the beet salad and each had a bowl of butternut squash soup, the best. Great Atmosphere and not overly priced for a resort...More

We visited this place last weekend while in town. It was 11:30 and the place looked like it was just opening for lunch. We each had a Shrimp Poboy and loved the fresh roll and tasty fried shrimp. Service was slower than we would have...More

Saw their menu on line and it looked like it was primarily a Cajun/New Orleans style food place. I ordered the gumbo to start and it was not a gumbo by any means. It was more a tomato soup with vegetables and shrimp. No roux...More
