We ate here on a recent trip and the prior reviews really didn't do the restaurant justice. The atmosphere is nice and it is quaint. The menu is very extensive with lots of great Cajun options but also some great seafood and pasta options. The shrimp etouffe was outstanding. Friends enjoyed the pasta dishes as well. They have a decent... More

I was tempted to leave 3 stars, but I decided they deserved a 4, or a 3.5. The biggest issue was when we were seated with our menus, we weren't told what the specials were. It took awhile before anyone came to our table, once she did we ordered our beverages, those were brought to the table pretty quickly because... More

Went here for an anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. Service was tremendous do us and the food was terrific! I've seen posts complaining about the prices, but they were reasonable for the quality and taste that you get. Nicolas was our servers and made sure we had a wonderful night!

Stopped for dinner on a late season ski day. Few customers and a relaxed atmosphere. Friendly and professional staff. Started with a Caesar salad with crisp lettuce and the right amount of dressing. Fresh bread. Main course was a very flavorful scallopini. Scallops were large and firm. Complemented by rice, fresh vegetables and a nice tomato based sauce. Mousse was... More

Our last night in Winter Park and our son wanted seafood. This place was the most expensive restaurant we ate at in the WP. My clam chowder was SEPARATING. Something was off. The bread on the table was delicious and my husband said he pasta dish was pretty good. The service was very good too.

Love the food here - particularly the chicken fried steak and fried pickles! The atmosphere leaves something to be desired, however. Just feels cheap.

I always enjoy Fontenot's ,but their brunch is fabulous. The menu has good variety and everything sounds delicious. I have a tough time making a choice. Try the Crab Cake Bennie or the Chicken Fried Steak with eggs and Andouille gravy. If you have a sweet tooth have a side of bread pudding beignets. Last week my husband and I... More

Showed up around 4 after a day of skiing. Not much of a crowd at that time. Sue, our waitress, provided us with both the Happy Hour menu and the regular menu. We ordered the Cuban Po'boy, Asian Nachos, and Fried Green Tomatoes off the Happy Hour menu along with a local craft beer and their house margarita known as... More
