Anchorage is not the first place that comes to mind when one thinks of gumbo, but this place does a good job with it. The fried oysters were very good, as well. A real touch of Louisiana.

I had the pleasure of joining some friends and co-workers for lunch at The Gumbo House recently, and it was amazing! 1st of all, the Gumbo House is actually a house, that has been made into a cozy restaurant near downtown Anchorage. The place was busy with the lunch crowd, but the service was excellent (fast and efficient)! The family... More

We always go to The Gumbo House when were in Anchorage. I recommend anything on the menu. I always get the BBQ Shrimp Poe Boy sandwich which comes with just the right amount of shrimp, on a hoagie, with coleslaw on the side. Another favorite is the Kitchen Sink gumbo, has everything just right with a beautiful dark rich roux.... More

Most folks do not know this little gem exists in a small strip-mall by samsclub off Old Seward highway. The food is good, decor average, portions range from just right to large. I had the gumbo kitchen sink. The portion was just right. If I had to over, I would leave out oysters. Added some hot stauss to spice it... More

Gumbo House makes the best gumbo I have ever had, including trips to New Orleans and Galveston. I have never had gumbo anywhere that does such a good job with the okra. The okra are in big slices and they do not get that slimy feeling like when it is over-cooked.

This is a house converted into a restaurant with a cut-out to the kitchen. Sitting anywhere in this place you will feel homely. The service is intimate as its run by a nice family (from California!). They were so sweet and told me about the best places to go in Anchorage and surrounding cities. The menu has gumbo, jambalaya, po'... More
