Have not eaten at Soileau's in many. The food was plentiful. The stuffed bell peppers, fried fish, fried oyster and the red snapper were all very good.

Excellent! I had the seafood gumbo and it tasted like homemade. I am very particular about gumbo because many restaurants don't make it well. I was pleasantly surprised with the great taste.
