I use to always order the Catfish Anthony, but it was taken off the menu. Sometimes they will still cook it for me. The food is good, prices moderate and a fun place to visit. Try the gumbo or the alligator.

Food was really good. We had alligator bites, calamari, shrimp and scallops on a rice bed with a really good spicy sauce. Beer was cold and our server was fast and always checked with us if everything was ok. Price was moderate, around USD40.

Good stop. Full widespread menu. Service was great. They really need to get the huge fountain going again. It's been broken a long time. Restaurant could use a good deep cleaning. There was a plate and napkin in the fountain. Restrooms were not super clean....More

Fishbones is great, perfect for a mid-range evening meal. We went as a group of colleagues and had a good time. The alligator po boy was excellent. The jambalaya had rave reviews from our group too.

Not sure what you mean. Any day is a good day for Fishbones! Weekends and days with local sports and concerts are more busy. Make reservations if you are worried about seating.
