Not the best, not the worst, middle of the road quasi Cajun food. BBQ shrimp appetizer was excellent. Waitress forgot part of our order. Half way through the meal she asked if we still wanted it. We said no. She left it on the bill anyway. It's a pet peeve of mine: I want my complete food order. Had the chorizo sandwich lunch special. Chorizo was really dry. The sandwich was OK though.
Kind of a hole in the wall place. Not much for atmosphere. Looks like they may have a musician on weekends.
Not going to rush back for another meal.

Extremely good food, very friendly service, a clean and comfortable atmosphere. Dine in or take out, you won't regret it.

I live in Homer, every time I go through Anchorage I have to visit Gumbo House. Service is always fast, food is always hot and super tasty. Gumbo is awesome, po boys are super delicious. The other location on 9th is also awesome.

Taking advantage of a coupon, we tried the Gumbo House and were pleasantly surprised. While it is definitely not the "Big Easy", it was good. The bucket size gumbo and jambalaya are big and should provide you with left overs. On Saturday nights, 6:00-8:00pm, there is life entertainment.

Using a coupon, we tried this restaurant and were not disappointed. While it is not New Orleans, the food has the flavor and "feel" of the "Big Easy". The bucket size servings of jambalaya and gumbo are worth the price, as you will take home left overs. An added bonus, on Saturday evenings, 6:00-8:00pm, there is life entertainment.
