I've eaten here four times now, and it never disappoints. GREAT seafood. Fried shrimp, fried oysters, lots and lots of other seafood. Yes, there are non-seafood items on the menu, but I'd get the fried shrimp (flour) and oysters (cornmeal) every time. (You get to choose the batter used, and those were the server's recommendations -- which turned out to... More

This restaurant is great! Great food, great prices, staff is very friendly, and helpful. You'd not regret trying this place. The only downfall, it it isn't open daily.

Food is consistently good; service is great with little crowds but wait could be long when crowded. Seafood is exceptionally fresh & well prepared, The restaurant is not fancy but the prices are reasonable. Favorite of many residents and visitors!

Politz's Restaurant provides some of the best food in Thibodaux and throughout the parish. Sometimes the food is excellent and other times just a tad under that but far superior to other food offered in the town and region. Cajun seafood dishes including gumbo are usually superb and were in our last trip. Shrimp stew (similar to shrimp etouffee) is... More

You can always see someone you know here on a Friday night. Fried seafood is probably the best thing on their menu, sometimes the grilled/broiled fish is sort of bland. Good hometown favorite, and usually a good stop. Get there early to park due to very limited and tight spaces available for parking.

My favorite place to go have a bowl of gumbo in the area! The fried seafood is fantastic and I really enjoy the Italian choices also.

Due to deaths in the family of owners/cooks this staple restaurant of Thibodaux is now only open on Fridays and Saturdays. Some of the best food, both fried and Southern that you can get anywhere.

The parking at Poliz is terrible and it took us over an hour and half to get served. We went in at 6:15 and was not served until 8:50PM with 4 small children. Poor service and food was not that good for a price of over $100! :(

Parking lot weeds and faded lines. The dinning room is dim and dull, the buffet side is tired as well. Fried food is the biggest lead items. I would like to see the kitchen and see how well that is kept. I wish they would do a make over, but it seems that milking the building is the most that... More
