We went to Sunday brunch to celebrate my sister's birthday, and it was a great experience. Our party wasn't as big as originally expected, not everyone showed up at the same time, but they didn't mind at all. Some restaurants won't seat your large party until everyone arrived and they promptly sat us and even kept bringing the bottomless mimosas (!!!!) right on time. Service was top-notch, honestly. I felt bad that we stayed for so long (we had brought a cake as well, and we were a group of girls drinking mimosas..it was quite a while), but they were so accommodating and it made the experience so memorable. The food was hot and fresh and so delicious. Thanks, Orleans Bistro! We are already planning to come back for brunch again soon! More...
Ridiculously good! I drove 3 hours to eat here .... the shrimp and grits and jambalaya is the best I've had ... I hope they expand closer to me! Pros: crazy good feed, clean, friendly staff, family friends and kids atmosphere Cons: far from me More...
I have to say that the portions are big and you will not leave disappointed or hungry! Went here with my closest GF's (an exciting bunch of ladies we are) and the waiter was very accommodating, friendly & attentive (bless his heart ). The food came out piping hot & so full of flavor, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. It took awhile for everyone to decide because everything sounded so good. We definitely will be back to try other dishes. I will say that I was disappointed in the beignets (which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars) But the music & atmosphere makes up for some of the disappointment (just a tad, cuz I love a good beignet). More...
So happy that we found this gem located a few minutes away from us. I wasn't really hungry but my hunny enjoyed his meal. I only had a couple Hurricanes and shared beignets with him. Both were delicious and invoked wonderfully memories of my time in Nola. I was fortunate enough to go on a Saturday night and Karaoke was in full swing. Can't wait to go back :) More...
Really tasty food in a warm and friendly environment. We came for a private party, and will definitely come back for a dinner or date night! the food was great, and the employees and owner were warm and friendly. More...
I want to go back to try more!!! I wish I had taken a picture of my dish! This night I had Shrimp and grits and it did not disappoint! It was crazy busy and the restaurant had an awesome turn out on the Saturday night for karaoke if you enjoy that but they also have a quiet side if you wish to sit there instead so don't be intimidated. I'm really excited to go back and try out some of the other things on the menu. What a gem to find hid away in Southpoint. More...

Came in tonight excited to try their food and they didn’t disappoint. The service was great and our waiter was attentive. However, we have no idea what was going on with the kitchen staff. It took about 40 minutes or so to get our food. The waiter did provide us with house salads since it took so long to get our dinner. I had the seafood pasta and the sauce was amazing. My husband got the salmon pasta and he said the fish was cooked perfectly. There was a hiccup with my order, but the manager did a great job in handling it all. We were sent off with complimentary benignets. They went above and beyond to make up for the time we waited for the food. We will definitely be back to try it again. More...
The food was delicious!! First time eating Chicken and Waffles and it was perfect. The chicken was seasoned, moist and fried to perfection. The RED VELVET (my fave) waffles were not as firm as I like but they were still good. Our waiter was attentive and the service was great.I will definitely be going back. There were several other items on the menu I would like to try. More...
We stopped here after a work trip to grab some food to go for the bus ride home and OMG!!! This food is delicious. I ordered the Jambalaya (Very spicy but i love spicy food! The flavor was to die for! Also ordered the starter chicken wings and they were fried and seasoned to perfection! I usually have to tell places to fry my chicken hard but they got it perfect without me mentioning it! We also ordered some beignets and they were nice and warm and so soft! I wish we didn't live so far cause this would be my weekly spot! More...
The food is really good definitely doesn't lack flavor! Service is kinda slow so don't come expecting to be in & out! The server was really nice & attentive!!
Everything was fantastic! Food, service, atmosphere - 10/10

Last night was my first time going. It was amazing. The server was great. (I don’t remember his name I’m sorry) but he made a great recommendation. The food was wonderful, generous portions. I will be going back for sure. More...
Love love the atmosphere here! The owner is amazing and personable. The food is outstanding every time you come. The drinks are great!
Great customer service and the food was very tasty and plentiful.
Excellent customer customer warm and welcoming staff
Unbelievable food!!! I got the shrimp with grits...outstanding!! My husband got the chicken and waffles..he has never had chicken that tastes so amazing. ..highly recommend this restaurant!! Bravo to the chefs!!! More...
This was our second night in a row eating here. First night we had fried chicken with red velvet waffle & side salad! Seafood pasta with Cajun cream sauce! I wished I took a picture! The food was so delish! We went back the next night and had the smothered pork shops with onion gravy with dirty rice & Mac & cheese! Catfish with grits & collard greens. Appetizer was fried chicken gizzards with spicy aioli!! We were in heaven with foodgasms!! I wish I could take this restaurant back to Baltimore with me but will be revisiting when I travel with my fiancé during his work trips! More...
Very good food I got shrimp and grits I loved it and the shrimp were pretty big I liked that the pricing was pretty high for most of the food and I don't think this place is really kid friendly only has one thing in the kids menu so no options for kids other then that I would go back for the food
This is one of the best places to chill out and have fun....shrimp po boy was pretty good..wings were amazing our waiter was Julian. .its the kind of place that the music and karaoke takes you back to your days of being a teenager and young adult.. More...
Great food! The shrimp and grits are addictive.
This is a very nice, spot, the DJ was off the hook. Very nice adult crowd , no foolishness. I had a great time and the food was awesome. A little bit pricey but worth it.
Great atmosphere and authentic cuisine!
Delicious! Shrimp and grits the best I’ve tasted since down South. Fried Catfish- tasty! Great atmosphere... Will be back...
The shrimp and grits were very good. If you like them with cheese and some good andouille sausage, it's good. Shrimp was good size. Grits were very creamy and definitely not instant. Good atmosphere and food service. I definitely recommend this. It's a good local joint for an out of towner. More...
Took a chance on this place because I mentally associated with a similarly named place downtown. They ARE NOT the same. This place is pretty legit. As a caveat, it was karaoke night, and that is not my thing, but it added free "entertainment" to our meal. Our waiter, Malon, was on point. He offered suggestions that were not on our radar and they were great. He was friendly, and his customer service skills were excellent. Then came the food. Even with a wait, a little more than expected, the wait was absolutely worth it. The spicy shrimp, fried chicken, greens, Mac & cheese, and shrimp & grits were seasoned well and cooked excellently. I knew it was good when my wife looked at me and said, "why haven't you brought me here before?" More...
The macaroni and cheese is to die for. The atmosphere is great. We went in on karaoke night and it was great!!

The DJ Deshawn king was AMAZING tonight'! The food and service was OUTSTANDING ! i love supporting Black Business ! I will continue to support on Friday nights ! If you have the same DJ as tonight he Rocked the house !!!!!! More...
Absolutely the best real Louisiana food around, great atmosphere, perfect service!
We wanted to support a black owned restaurant on our trip to Fredericksburg and found this restaurant on Yelp. We had an amazing experience from beginning to end. This seems to be a restaurant frequented by locals and we felt the warm atmosphere as soon as we entered. I had the jambalaya and my boyfriend had the chicken and waffles. Both meals were delicious and the fried chicken was top 2 (...and not 2). The drinks were strong and very affordable. It was also karaoke night and enjoyed watching the performances. If ever we are in this area again, we will definitely return! Thanks so much for the hospitality! More...
This was my first taste of Cajun food outside of the south. I was extremely impressed and satisfied by the food that was presented. I loved the catfish, jambalaya, and collard greens. I was only driving through the area. If it was closer to Norfolk I know they'd make even more of a killing. More...
Diane Horner Stacey
Wonderful dinner!! Excellent service!!!
What a great a place for the first time going! We went on the karaoke night, it was a great atmosphere and the owner was awesome! ! Danced with her....lol. Food was hot and fresh and everyone must try the wings!! More...
We've eaten here before so we already knew the food was amazing. However you are never sure if you will get the same quality when using delivery rather than dining in. I'm thrilled to say that they did not disappoint!! The food was still amazing and still hot. Whether dining in or delivery, Orleans is the place to be! More...
I came and got some gumbo and crawfish etouffee............ it was thee absolute best ever! Nothing needed to be added!!
A great meal! Gumbo is out of this world.
Chicken wings are delicious!! We stopped there on our way home from King's Dominion and it was well worth it. Wings are perfect having crispy skin and juicy meat. Will definitely go back there if I'm ever in the area. More...
Fantastic food and fast, friendly service!! The shrimp and grits are SO good!! And you have to try the alligator bites!!
The food the food is awesome
Nice, quaint cajun restaurant hidden in Fredericksburg. Authentic cajun cuisine was on point. Drinks are STRONG (A+)! Once they get the hookah situation solved, we'll be back
Great food, awesome staff, and some of the best folks you'll ever have the privilege to meet. First class all the way!
Great food! Great service.
was pleasantly surprised I had jambalaya wife had seafood gumbo both were quite enjoyable
I had an event catered last weekend. The food was outstanding! My guests kept asking who made the food because everything was so delicious. It was a pleasure working with Tisha and her staff. The ordering process was simple and they offered so many options. Thank you for a great stress free experience!! More...
We, my group of eight, showed up to this unknown jewel for dinner after a long day in the sun. We had five different dinner items between the group. Everyone REALLY enjoyed their meals. The collards greens might be worthy a long drive to enjoy (I'm from Reno NV). The service started a little rough but finished with the same five stars as the food. More...
service and food are amazing!!!
Amazing food with a real authentic cajun sauce. The staff is friendly and keeps the experience exciting!
Owner is so kind and so is everything he else! As a visitor, felt so welcome and had an AMAZING time!
Jean Ellen Grant
Amazing flavor, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. And the sweet tea and service was fantastic
The Food was Awesome and our Waitress was Simply the Best
The service and the food are fantastic. It's going to be in our regular rotation from now on.
Great food with a great atmosphere. It certainly gives you that cheers vibe where "everyone knows your name." Chicken and waffels are amazing!
Just finished a fabulous meal here. This was our first time here and the food and service was phenomenal. Listening to the jazz in the background along with a fabulous meal was excellent! Our server, Milan, was the absolute best! Thank you for making my Mother's Day a memorable one. More...
Great location! Fun staff
Sunday brunch is fabulous. The chicken and velvet waffle outstanding. Definitely would revisit
Fantastic 'Nawlins style cooking
Seafood pasta is fantastic !!!!
Milan gave us great service today! The bottomless mimosas were on point! The food was delicious!! Worth ever penny!!!
My husband and I had dinner at Orleans last night and it was, once again, excellent. I had the gumbo and my husband had the seafood linguine. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes. My only complaint was that my gumbo spoon was teaspoon size and I couldn't eat fast enough . Can't wait to visit again. More...
First time eating here. Love the food and the ... I guess aura... Yes, it's a good place! Definitely coming back!
Great dining experience and service. The food was fresh so expect to wait for your meal a little. The macaroni and cheese was on point and the catfish was delicious. They were out of cornbread which was no biggie and will give me a reason to return. Can't wait to go back again. More...
Yummy!!! Wish I had found this place sooner! I love cajun food and haven't had any good cajun food in a long time.
Very good. The Calamari was very good and tender and the house sauce tasty. The Gregoire Blackened Chicken Pasta had amazing flavor. The chicken was extremely flavorful and tender. The cream sauce had good consistency and great flavor as well. I will definitely be going back to try many of the other options. More...
Joy Ann Marshall
Our first time yesterday (the 14th) and I can say we will be back because there are more things on the menu we NEED to try. We had alligator bites and spiced shrimp appetizers, shrimp fettucinni and gumbo as entree and the benye's for dessert... absolutely delicious! great service and atmosphere too! More...
Great food and all around grown folks vibe!!!
Robert C Anderson
The staff at the bistro always take good care of me and my family and friends. Great food and an awesome staff and great music on Wednesday night and Friday night
This place is beyond delicious! The food is so awesome. I had pleasure of dining here three times and each time, I fell in love with each dish. The wings are fried perfectly and the shrimp Alfredo pasta is literally the best pasta dish I have ever had. I have diner at many places but the food here surpassed my expectations each time. I am a picky eater but I can truly eat here every single day! Yummy More...
Tarece Marie Whitley
Friendly and fun atmosphere with AMAZING food. Those greens, tho!
Amazing creole. Went for lunch and my boy had the gator bites, I had an oyster Poor Boy. Fantastic food, very nice waitress, and they had some kind of dance thing going in the front. Loved it.
The food was great and the service was amazing !!
I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for meals cooked to perfection, with outstanding customer service. The owner Tish and her staff are amazing!
Good food,interesting decor. Will definitely come again.
Good Food and a good DJ! Met the Owner and she was sweet and hospitable! I recommend to everyone
If you haven't eaten here yet, stop what you're doing and head on over here. The Fredericksburg area lacks good southern restaurants so I was pretty excited to find this place! I ordered the catfish, chicken wings, dirty rice and side salad. Everything was amazing. The catfish is fresh, seasoned. The chicken wings were big, seasoned and juicy. The salad was crisp, green and fresh. The portions are amazing for the price. More...
Nice & friendly atmosphere & Good food
Very good food and staff is excellent.
chicken wings & The bar drinks
The food here is the best! I've had the fried oysters, chicken livers, gumbo- just about everything. The macaroni and cheese is the best I've had anywhere, including at home:)The service is great- fast and friendly, they keep the iced tea filled. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for some great southern food.I also love the fact that they do so many community events and give back locally. More...
Line dance. Food.. Ambience. Customer service. A
So happy to have found a place to get authentic Cajun food in the area!!!! Tastes great and the drinks are good too!
Good food, great service and yummy martinis! I try and come when i'm in town monthly for work.

The food & sponsored workshops
Valerie W. Parker
Excellent food, music atmosphere
Outstanding service and great food
Great food and service!!!
The staff has always been friendly and attentive. I admire how this restaurant generously supports community groups and efforts to help others. To top it off, the food is excellent! My wife and I love this restaurant. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. Come and enjoy quality, authentic regional food. More...
Great environment! Awesome foods! Been here about 4-5 times and have yet to have a bad meal. From the catfish to smothered pork chops they will not disappoint you. If ever in the area and want that New Orleans feel, stop by! You may even get to do karaoke or listen to music from the DJ. More...
Love the oysters and catfish. So good!! The cozy atmosphere and music was exactly what I needed.
Forrest A Parker
Great food ,Great environment for friends to get together. great owners smile
After a long day of traveling we needed a break and a good meal. The shrimp, fried okra and friend chicken were perfect. We were pleasantly surprised to find a DJ on a Wednesday. Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Thank you for a great evening! More...
Amazing food and staff!!!
The food is great and the owner is wonderful. We did a tasting for a catered event and they rolled out the red carpet. Classy!
Christina A. Claflin
The entire experience at the Orleans Bistro was amazing! The food is simply incredible. Come and check it out. You will not be disappointed.
Fantastic service! Food was so incredibly flavorful!! I highly recommend this place.
This place is amazing! From the alligator bites red beans and rice and shrimp and grits everything is cooked perfectly and well seasoned. No salt and pepper on the table here. Service is impeccable. Highly recommend. More...
On our way to Florida we stopped to eat after being stuck in VA traffic for 3 hrs. It was either this place or KFC. So glad we didn't eat KFC. We had the most incredible dining experience at Orleans Bistro and Grill! Let's start with the meal... We ordered the fried chicken, dirty rice, Mac & cheese and smashed potatoes. Let's say nothing was left on our plates. For dessert, we had the benoits and coffee. The doughnuts were light and fluffy and the coffee was great. Lastly, our waitress was the sweetest! I think her name was Tyresha. Tyresha, you rock! Her recommendations were on point. She was attentive and friendly.Do yourself a favor and head on over to Orleans Bistro and Grill. Too bad they're not located in NYC :( More...
Absolutely amazing food and service!!! Will return in the future for sure
service amazing food even better this place is a must try the food speaks for itself she puts alot heart into this food.
Everything about this place is wonderful! Good, staff, ownership, entertainment! Lunch menu, Sunday brunch, full menu! You MUST go!!!
its a great place for good southern dining.
The food is amazing. I was wanting something different, and was so happy to see all the positive reviews on google for Orleans Bistro & Grill, that I just had to try it.
The Orleans Bistro and Grill is the place to visit. Milan was a great and attentive server. His recommendations on point. I had the seafood pasta and was incredibly delicious . I usually eat gumbo or Jambalaya when I visit my family in Louisiana so I wanted to try something different. This place was so good. Highly recommend visiting here. Wish I had this closer to home. More...
Marcus S. Stewart
Good menu selection and atmosphere... The food was Delicious!
Angie Smith Perry
Ok so we finally tried this great place. The owner is awesome. Not only did she let us sample things but was so warm and friendly. I highly recommend the oyster Rockefeller this lady will go far and we will be back. Thank u again for this awesome expierence More...
We came in for a break from awful traffic driving back to Dulles. We had the gumbo, the catfish and grits, and the fried Mac and cheese. All dishes were excellent!!! Highly recommend! More...
Outstanding food, great service, amazing atmosphere!! 5 stars!
Cool little spot. Good food, good atmosphere. Would certainly come back. Only negative is that it is a small space and feels cramped, especially with the band. Wait staff was great!
My wife and I stopped in Fredericksburg on our way from Richmond to Falls Church, and stumbled across OBG. We were blown away at the quality of the food and drink! I had the seafood gumbo, added a little extra spice. It was filled with seafood--more crawfish than I could count, huge shrimp, tasty roux. My wife's catfish was okay, but her mac & cheese was THE best I've ever had. On top of that, the house wine (at $4.00 generous happy hour pour), was delicious. I wish we were closer to this--it would be on our rotation. More...
The food alone is something that this area has been needing for years. From karaoke nights to business brunch and mingles, New Orleans is a great place to frequent any day of the week.
Diana Sheila Keitt
good food and good people
This food is on point! Recommend this place to anyone that loves some Cajun food, or hasn't tried it before.
Highly recommend food was great had the catfish platter wit mac n cheese and a few cold beers..karaoke night was hype good environment
My husband and I were going to go to Firehouse Subs for dinner and he spotted this diamond. So glad he did and we will be coming back! ! Thank you for some scrumptious food and excellent service! More...
Charles Edizzle Edwards
Great food, good music, I really enjoyed myself!
Cost: $7-20 USDFood Quality: EXCELLENT Decor: New Orleans Style, Big Easy StyleService: EXCELLENT Cuisine Type: Cajun, Creole, Seafood, New Orleans StyleIf you want true Culinary Magic of the Crescent City then make your way to Orleans Bistro and Grill. For starters, the staff demonstrates a level of propriety unknown to the Fredericksburg, VA area. I was disappointed that they no longer service my most favorite New Orleans Style dish-BBQ Shrimp. Apparently, the non educated/uncultured customers unfamiliar with fine cuisine were intimidated by the shrimp heads. A true loss....They also know how to pamper and how to stoke an atmosphere of family and celebration that is warm an inviting. The food was truly a breath of fresh air and a renewal of my tastebuds. After living in the Big Easy for almost a decade, I can vouch for the quality of food. The kitchen nails the landings on these idiosyncratic versions of French-Creole/Cajun cuisine because chef Tisha Johnson doesn't skimp on the quality of the ingredients and she does not ask her kitchen to execute dishes that fall outside the restaurant's mission of serving a legitimate cuisine served with an by a beautiful soul.The owner, an Ohio native truly satiates the French-Creole equation with controlled technique and unforced erudition, infused with a sense of legitimate family ambiance.For those whom have been disappointed by a restaurant pretending to serve New Orleans Style food (Cafe New Orleans) this pace will restore your faith! More...
Amazing food. Amazing staff. Amazing atmosphere!
Tray J. Hall
Delicious food and great atmosphere!
Great food and Candice saw to our every need.
I love this place. Good people, Good Food and the owner Tish has a heart of Gold!
Great spot...great food...great atmosphere!!!
Dene Blackmon Wright
Shrimp & Grits, phenomenal!
excellent food. I love the seafood gumbo, it was delicious. Great experience, brought me memories of New Orleans. I will return to try other dishes. I recommend it to everyone.
I love this place and the food!
Great atmosphere and the food is amazing. Mac and cheese is to die for, my favorite. Owner treats everyone like family!
I usually don't post a review unless (IMO) it's 5 stars . That being said I wish there was one more for this review. What can I say? The portions are HUGE and I'm not ashamed to tell you I'm going back today with leftovers still in my fridge. Traditional (did I mention the word huge?) po boys. These require both hands and a big mouth. Soo good. And the jambalaya? Sweet Jesus. Girl adopt me. Hire me. Feed me. Will see you in an hour. Seriously so seriously check this place out like yesterday. Can't wait to try Brunch but for now I'm heading back to try the shrimp n grits. See you there!!! More...
What a great eating experience!
I am so sad... we were coming back to DC and needed lunch. Hit the Yelp app and found this awesome restaurant. Why am I sad you ask? 50 miles in traffic each way to get crack shrimps and grits, someone get me a flying car. I died and went to NoLo heaven. I offered the waiter $20 to get me the recipe, he said he couldn't so I went up to $30. The owner came over and wouldn't cough it up but she told me it had three cheese's. I am on to it, one is Gyere... I will figure out the rest. The sausage was the bomb with the dish. Just a suggestion, put a side of collars with the dish and that would be double heaven. More...
First visit today for lunch. Service was great and food was delicious. Loved the large servings! Will be back.
Let me start by saying Milan was my server! He is Awesome! What he recommends is definitely the green light. I have been here with my husband twice and some friends for a total of 3 times. The food is good and I'm always up for something different. Well Milan recommended the chicken wings for an appetizer which was AWESOME... the entree was the Blackened chicken pasta definitely AWESOME! I asked if they had unlimited like Olive Garden it was so good. I love Olive Garden but this pasta here makes me say Good bye Olive Garden or put the cook in there. Overall my experiences here have been great and the food is amazing. My husband always get the catfish and for now on wings and blackened chicken will be what I get. Thanks Milan your recommendations and service was great!!! More...
I had lunch there today, a shrimp po'boy and I substituted the fries for an order of their dirty rice, both items were very good. I'll definitely be back to try other items! More...
Nadia Magali Torres
Delicious food, kindly people
It was our first visit. Enjoyed it.
Gary GhMajh Samuels
Beautiful atmosphere, great service, delicious food and drinks and owners who are warm and makes you want to come back! Definitely 5 stars! The seafood and pasta is off the chain! More...
First time and I enjoyed it. Staff was great. I plan to go again when I pay more attention to food. I was enjoying seeing friends today!
I went with my friend Yvonne Spencer on my birthday!!!! Had the best time ever. Staff was wonderful, food was great and music was on point . The best part: Everybody in the entire restaurant was on the same page: Friendly and having a great time. No mess, no hate/attitude and definitely no DRAMA. Back in the day: JOY and HAPPINESS. ✊✊✊❤️❤️❤️Recommend Orleans Bistro and Grill highly!!!!!! More...
Phenomenal authentic creole/Cajun food. My go to are the gator bites, the seafood gumbo, and the beignets of course. Also, the fried pork skins! Although they're not on the menu, if you ask nicely, they'll fry some fresh for you... still popping when you get them! More...
Dee E. Jones
Went for lunch with hubby. Food tasted fresh and was hot off the stove. I don't even like catfish and I tore it up. Nice size servings great customer service. Ordered Gumbo, Jambalaya, Etoufee, (probably spelled wrong). Fresh shrimp appetizer. Hennessy Mojito jumped out of my comfort zone and did not disappoint. My only negative gumbo could of had a lil more flavor and been a little thicker but that's a personal preference as I have family from New Orleans and that's just how we do lol. Overall great experience !!! More...
Great place to eat and enjoy
Orleans Bistro and Grill is the Spot......PERIOD !
The food was good, but our server was terrible. I would definitely go back.
We were swinging through town and got to experience this little gem for lunch. Happy we did! Started with the alligator bites appetizer. Well cooked and tiger sauce was on point. Husband had jambalaya I had catfish with crawfish etoufee . We split a side of collards. Bottome line food was AMAZING service was great! More...
Thanks so much for your generosity...
I had the catfish wrap two days in a row....Both my stomachs were satisfied..#jatheloctress
Absolutely love this place ! They have karaoke
The oyster rockerfellar, mac n cheese, gumbo, shrimp and grits just to name a few...are delicious!
Harold N Brooks Jr
The best dining experience that I have had in decades. The atmosphere is unparalleled. I highly recommend it
Came here for a financial wellness seminar and afterwards had dinner. Food was amazing (fried shrimp, mac n cheese, collards, alligator bites). Customer service and waitstaff were great. Met the owner, she was very personable and down to earth. Love the atmosphere and music, will definitely return! More...
Martika M. Reid
the Seafood Gumbo & Alligator bites where Amazing. I definitely a recommend
Just had dinner at the Orleans bistro in Spotsylvania Virginia with the wife, and man let me tell you, I always knew the catfish was on point but those grits are off the chain Catfish and grits try it it will make you want to slap yo
Love this little hole in the wall heaven! Nice, true level creole! (Especially if you point blank ask... gimme the real stuff! ) Great staff! All are wonderful! Have tried almost everything on the menu (i dont eat catfish, so that knocks a few off!)but am never disappointed! More...
Kenny Blevins Sr.
Good food and service. Great for family or date night out!!
The food was great customer service was excellent
Came at lunch time, it's quiet and clean with good music in the background. Didn't get any food this time but everyone around me was getting food hot from the kitchen with no issue and little delay. Even though they were slow the staff was still busing the tables efficiently and not letting it sit around. Can't wait to come back and try the gator bites! More...
Food is delicious, drinks are very good. I've been on several occasions. Service is prompt and pleasant. The entertainment is a lot of fun, singing and dancing. Very relaxing.
Celebration of a friend's graduation- I am vegan so not much for me but the salad was fresh and delicious. All other members of our party raved about the seafood and sides especially the Mac n' cheese and collard greens.
Kevin M. Lomax
Had a great time. Our server, Julius was super; attentive, caring, informative, very nice, and all around professional....
We...had...a...BALL! When I tell you that we had a GREAT time last night it is truly an understatement. One of my coworkers told me about Orleans Bistro Grill and so I gathered some friends and off we went. From the time we stepped in the place it was an awesome experience. We had an knowledgeable and energetic waiter (handsome little chocolate brother) with a sense of humor, some drinks that were NOT watered down, good music and just all around good vibes. It felt good being grown and sexy in a safe and fun place. The bathrooms were clean (thats a plus for me), staff was friendly and approachable. We did not order food but we will next time. It certainly smelled good. Thank you for being here! LOVE IT! I did not get to do my song (karaoke) but next time I definitely will. What an awesome place!!! More...
We enjoyed everything! The crawfish étouffée and the seafood pasta were delicious.
Wonderful service and food was fresh and served hot!! If you want the south on a plate this will be the place to go!!!! Thankyou so much for being in small town of Fredericksburg. House decor was New Orleans style! Clean and fresh!!! More...
So not normally a reviewer but the service here was so great it would be a disgrace not to. Milan was our server and we would come back even if the food sucked (which it did not). He was very sincere and gave honest opinion about his recommendation. I had the blackened chicken pasta (his recommendation), it was amazing. My wife had the jambalaya and that was great as well. Great atmosphere, amazing service, definitely a place worth the stop. More...
Absolutely Amazing Atmosphere, food, drinks, entertainment, and service.
John Q. Smith
It was like a taste of New Orleans here in Fredericksburg. Food was great! Loved the beignets! Will definitely be back!

Those alligator bites are life. This is my only spot to go in Fredericksburg!
George M H.
Recommended Orleans Bistro and Grill to some friends today Father's Day we got there it wasn't overwhelmingly busy in fact the Crown was light but we started off in a very rough situation not a good situation however I have to say it was no complaints about the food and the situation that I reference turned out to be very good in fact I'm I thinking the owner went overboard to make sure that we were satisfied customers. This was my 5th time there. My friends said they certainly be returning More...
Finally good music in Fred'burg. Lots of good menu choices. Friendly staff :)
THE BEST PLACE FOR GROWN AND SEXY, WITH A RELAXING ATMOSPHERE . GREAT TIME
So, heard about this place that just opened, apprehensive because most places north of the gulf south claim to be "New Orleans" or "Cajun" are always a huge disappointment. But what the hell, gave it a shot. Right off the bat, I knew they were doing something right when on the menu, one could order a po-boy, not a sub, but a po-boy, "dressed" or "undressed". When I order "dressed" anywhere, I get funny looks, but this place has it on the menu! Plenty of food options, from Seafood Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, Crawfish Etoufee', to Alligator, and Beignets, not doughnuts, but Beignets. I ordered the Catfish Po-Boy, dressed with remoulade. It tasted amazing, perfectly battered and seasoned as one would expect from the Crescent City. We finished up with Beignets. A fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff and food that lives up to what is advertised. Finally! We will be coming back. Thank You! More...

From the appetizer to the main course....I was thoroughly impressed with how good the food taste! I will definitely be back!
I had a shrimp po boys and the wife had fried catfish and greens. Both were piping hot and the greens were fresh picked/cooked and tasty. Calm atmosphere and clean environment. Staff was refreshingly pleasant. #greatfood More...
Service by Milan was outstanding. Food was excellent, tasty, hot when served, and portions very large. We will be back.
The Mac and cheese was some of the best I've had! My wife had the oysters and I had Red Beans and Rice! Delicious Beignets!! Wow!!!
First, my disclaimer, I am not a connoisseur of New Orleans Style food. Secondly, but most importantly, this was some of the best food that I've eaten outside of home. I had the alligator bites which had the right amount of a spicy kick to it. My main course, "Orleans Seafood Pasta", for me it was perfect in every way. Taste was perfect. Plenty of seafood. I'm not a big fan of Alfredo Sauce but this also was great. The pasta was also perfect. If you can't tell, I really enjoyed my meal. The customer service provided by the bartender (I sat at the bar) was on point. I wish I had gotten the young man name. Thank you!!!Ok, Orleans Bistro and Grill, you have set the bar high for yourself. I'LL BE BACK!!! More...

Excellent food, great atmosphere and amazing customer service! We will definitely be back soon.
Atmosphere awesome Customer service was great, despite mis communication regard what lunch item were still available Food was delicious. I had shrimp and grits w/ alligator sausage and also tried the seafood pasta dish More...
Great place for Sunday brunch. Chicken and waffles was delicious. And happy hour all day Sunday....WHAAAT!? Service was great (Thanks Mallon! ) and caught the tail end of the live music. Definitely worth visiting this place if you're in the area. More...
Amazing food an fabulous people
This place is off the beaten path and amazing. It's cajun food,and it's good. I had the fried catfish,macaroni and cheese,and dirty rice. The catfish was crispy on the outside, but moist. Cooked perfectly. The macaroni and cheese was the star. A huge dish of baked mac and cheese that tastes like your grandma made it. The dirty rice is really good too. The service is good, and the owner personally introduced herself. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and can't wait to eat there again. More...
This was our first time at Orleans. The experience was mostly very good, one glaring bad.Service was great from the time we got there to the time we left. We ordered calamari as the appetizer, it was hot and quite light, probably the best we have had since a time when we ordered it in Italy. I ordered the crawfish étouffée, and I have to say is was delicious. The wine choices were small but sufficient.So, you say, what was the issue? They introduced a new menu item, a blackened salmon dish over pasta with a cream sauce. The salmon came out way overcooked to the point that is was almost inedible. When you have to use a knife to cut your salmon, that's not good. What saved it at all was the very good pasta and sauce. Admittedly, we like our salmon at 125 to 130 degrees, where it is still moist on the inside (not rare or raw).In summary, despite the lousy salmon, this place has a lot of good stuff waiting for us and we look forward to eating there again. It still gets 4 stars for all of the good things we had. More...
My wife and I went here on a whim on a Friday night a few weeks ago. when we got there the place was packed!!! you could tell the wait staff was overwhelmed. I ordered the catfish with craw-fish etouffee and my wife ordered the fried chicken. we started to notice that the food was taking a while to come out and then the owner came to our table and apologized for the wait and offered us a free order of beignets. It is nice when the owner notices a problem and resolves it before the customer complains! even though we had to wait for the food, let me tell you it was well worth the wait. the Craw-fish Etouffee was absolutely delicious and my wife said the fried chicken was the best she ever had! we have been back since the first time and the wait time was much better! this has become our favorite restaurant in fredericksburg. Please try this place and keep this small local business thriving! More...
Everything I have eaten has been WONDERFUL! The staff is INCREDIBLE! The Owner has a heart of GOLD to support her community!
Just had lunch here with the mother and mother in law and kids. Great food and service!!!

Yolanda Faison Pierce
The food and drinks are Awesome. We will be back
The Shrimp Po boy Sandwich and the Mac & Cheese are to Doe for!!! The Owner & Her Staff are Wonderful People w/ Great Customer Service.
Lauren Xs Ashley
Great service by Amanda and Victoria. Food was great.
Authentic cajun style cuisine. Spicy and milder offerings that were delicious. Personnel was accommodating and attentive. (My only suggestion would be that they substitute pasta choices . My husband liked the ingredients in a dish that was made with penne, and another dish, that he did not like was made with linguini. I imagine the dishes are made to order, so they should be able to change the pasta choice for those dishes, but they would not do that. ) More...
Went with three friends for dinner. Mika was our server. She was training a new server and by the end of the evening we knew why she was training new servers. She was great! It was a fun evening. I ordered red beans and rice, it was great. All the others throughly enjoyed their dinners. This place is not fancy but the food is great and the folks there are very welcoming More...
Went here today because the restaurant I had chosen for our group ride was closed. What a good choice that turned out to be. Friendly staff, great service and the food was outstanding! Definitely will be back. Spoke to the general manager on duty and she was appreciated of our visit and my comments on the food and service. Keep up the good work all! More...
Robin Meeks Hatcher
Fun night out for hubby & I. Busy night @OB&G but our server Lindsay was excellent. Cornbread melted in our mouths. My Salmon pasta special was excellent as was his catfish dinner with sides of collards & the best Mac & cheese he’s ever had out. Bonus was Tap takeover night by local Six Bears & a Goat Brewey: **Mae West . Finale of Beignets as good as in NOLA. Only recommendation is real dairy creamer for coffee to culminate the dessert experience. Enjoyed the engaging music from bar room. We’ll be back to try more of your delicious cuisine. More...

Jean Sheryle Jacobs
Awesome Food great staff and the drinks are amazing!!
I've been there three times, enjoyed myself each and every time. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. The people are very friendly. I ran across a Jazz Band Leader that played at Opus 88 in Tyson Corner area. The music is awesome!!! More...
Me and my fiancée and I went yesterday and loved it. We went around 1:30pm and was the only ones there. She had the Shrimp & Grits which was fire! I had the fried catfish with Mac & cheese and dirty rice, also good. I love the decor of the place and overall feel. We also got a chance to meet the owner. Wish we would of got a picture, cause she gonna make it happen with that spot and I wish her nothing but success and expansion with the business! Much love. More...
Really enjoyed the food and the DJ. Staff were freindly and made you feel welcome.Looking forward to my next visit.
Bronson Ian Grube
Great food!!! Recommend the blackened chicken!!!!!
I stumbled upon Orleans bistro on a recommendation and did this restaurant deliver!!! Customer service is top notch not to mention how delicious the seafood gumbo is. Don't forget to ask for the cornbread. What a great atmosphere. Props to the entire staff More...
Oh, My! We have finally found it! New Orleans cuisine is tasty here and our sever was AWESOME with impeccable timing. Our new date night favorite! (Don’t miss the beignets!)
I ordered the fried oysters and they were exactly what I was hoping for. They tasted great. I ordered at the bar. Only thing I'll say is that they didn't pay me any mind when I first sat down. Then they finally acknowledged me. I know the girl saw me but I'm pretty sure she just wanted to take a break from people for a bit so I get it. Overall they have good food and decent prices. I'll be back for more. The atmosphere is like a bar for the most part but they do have another side that's better suited for dining in. Give this place a try they have good food. One of my friends came here as well and he enjoyed the food on his visit. More...

Had girls night with 2 friends last night. Ambience was pleasant as it was karaoke, grown and sexy night. Next Time I’ll need to make reservations to sit where all the fun happens. None the less, dining area was cool. We could hear each other and enjoy our food, with light. Mussels, shrimps, catfish, greens were all great. Mac n cheese was soupy or had water on the bottom, clearly wasn’t baked. Besides that, I’ll definitely go back to this lounge and support them in the coming years! More...
Always a nice atmosphere n the food is very good! Matt was a very good server...
I went to NOLA for the first time last year and had no idea that I LOVED Cajun food. I keep trying restaurants that serve Cajun food but have not been impressed. So, tonight was a pleasant surprise! I tried the cornbread, calamari, mac and cheese, fried chicken, shrimp po’boy, and beignets. All were delicious, flavored well, and tasted fresh. The staff was friendly and attentive. I was seated right away, I met one of the owners, who was very gracious. Even when leaving an employee kindly thanked us for coming and wished us a good night while opening the door for us. I will be back soon! More...
This is a great new addition to the Fredericksburg bar and restaurant scene! We went with a group and were impressed with every meal. The service was super friendly, and the quality and authenticity of everything was first rate. So happy to have this addition to our list of restaurants. It's a bit out of the way for us, but it's so worth it, we will definitely be back soon! More...
I went based on yelp reviews and I am so happy I did!! The service was amazing!! We went on a Wednesday and the music and games were a lot of fun. I ordered the shrimp and grits with alligator sausage and I was not disappointed!! I would recommend trying them! I will be coming back!! More...
I have no words for this dish. My palette has been ruined...in the most magnificent way possible. Orleans Bistro and Grill came highly recommended not only from a local Facebook page, but from personal friends as well and I see why. The ambiance is relaxing with good soul music to match the New Orleans cuisine. It helps that the owner's main mission has nothing to do with the food and more with helping the community. Please do yourself a favor and head down to Fredericksburg, VA, visit Orleans Bistro and Grill, and have your taste buds ruined in the most beautiful way possible. More...
I ate here on Wednesday and I must say I was very impressed!! The service was amazing and the food was outstanding!! I had shrimp and grits with alligator sausage. I also ordered mac n cheese, and rockfish to take home to my husband. I met the manager and listened to some great music! I would definitely recommend going!! More...
Stopped here on the way through on a road trip and we were looking for some seafood. The food here was very good and quite filling, as good Cajun cooking should be! The staff was quite attentive and the beignets were spectacular. More...
The cornbread was outstanding!!! I had the jumbo and a friend the shrimp po' boy. My only suggestion is a sauce on the po' boy. It's a bit pricey for lunch. Would eat here again! More...
Most delicious fried oysters & corn bread that I’ve tasted in very a long time (next 2 my son’s mother in law’s Christmas morning oysters) �. They just MELT in ya mouth! Extremely friendly staff & they make the best White Russian I’ve tasted since moving 2 Fredericksburg 2 yrs ago! They also hosted one of my agency’s events this month & the food was great! - Wendy Flores More...
We hosted my sister’s proposal dinner there with 30+ people! That was the only place that would accomodate our group on a week’s notice on a busy Saturday night. The owner and staff was so sweet and helpful! We had an amazing time and the food was great! I recommend to anyone and their Karaoke Night is lit! More...
Fantastic food we had ve collard greens, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, rice and some other things. Food was great people were super nice
Recently enjoyed on a Friday evening! The food and service was awesome. We ordered several appetizers in place of entrees and everything was delicious. We had chicken wings, calamari and oysters. More...
I will say first that I am not particularly familiar with Cajun food but do enjoy spice. I have eaten here twice in the last month and found the food, service and prices great. First had oyster Po'boy as I love this sandwich. It was great, the bread tasty and fresh and packed with beautifully fried oysters. My granddaughter had catfish and Mac & Cheese. She gave them thumbs up. All good, the second trip I had shrimp and grits and they were amazing! The grits creamy with smoking sausage and tender shrimp. I'm hooked. Oh, and the beignets are a great finish! More...
This place is hands down amazing. I promise you, that you will not want to talk during your meal, because the food is that good. The staff is very kind and I can’t say enough good about this place! More...
If you are looking for something other than the run of the mill steakhouse and same old chain restaurants, you have come to the right place. We stayed in Fredericksburg on a business trip and searched Yelp for something for dinner. Yelp did not let us down. From the moment we walked in and we're met by the friendly, welcoming owner herself....to the last bite of dinner and our take home beignet we were well pleased. Anyone who knows me, knows that fried chicken is my favorite thing in the world. So I had to try it. Perfectly fried, flour and seasoning southern fried chicken. The seasoning is right up to the brink of perfect in my book. The dirty rice is not too heavy and really nice. And the cabbage was good. I like my cabbage a little more cooked but the seasoning is great. Hubby got the shrimp and grits and they were fantastic. He usually adds salt to everything, not this. It didn't need anything extra. Oh, forgot to mention the alligator bites we got for appetizer. They were great. Light and not overly cooked or chewy. The owner came and talked with us and she is a warm friendly person who has a heart for her community. Fredericksburg, PLEASE do not let this gem go! You won't be disappointed. They have only been open since October and you would never know it. Service was smooth and on top of things. Tracy was attentive and helpfulOverall a really great place. Next time I won't have to search Yelp, I know where we will be coming! More...
Amazing food, fast and friendly service! Fried oysters and alligator bites are amazing! Took my mother Saturday evening and she also loved it!
Went for Mardi Gras, great music, great crowd, food looked good. Service was good, i enjoyed it, stayed until it closed.
Always looking for a new spot and I heard great things about this "new" spot. Had the gumbo (with extra Dungeness crab), spicy shrimp and mac and cheese. All were very good. Had a chance to meet Tisha, the owner, and it was my pleasure. I would recommend that you try the gumbo right off the bat!!y goal is to try every item on the menu. More...
Five star � food. Five star � atmosphere. Must try spot in Fredericksburg VA!
Susie Wells Sallinger
They sure know how to party. I had so much fun. I will definitely go back.
Phyllis Roberson Polk

Went with two other people this evening and everything was amazing. The food was so good and the service was beyond amazing. Ask for Phaedra.
I love the staff and food here! Phaedra was our waitress! Whomever made the strawberry henny mojito..God bless you!
Went with a group of friends. Food was very good. Ambiance of the restaurants was good as well. Very good vibe. They have music and a few TV's. Saturday night is also Kareoke night so that was fun to watch as well. Over all a very good place and we will definitely be returning on a regular basis. More...
Great service. Jambalaya was fabulous...wings didn’t have any flavor. My friend said the red beans and rice were delicious. The pastries dessert was okay. Would definitely recommend and will be returning for the jambalaya. More...
Had the pleasure of dining there yesterday and the food was amazing. The atmosphere was welcoming and the service was excellent. Ashley was our server for the evening and she was absolutely awesome! Ashley checked on us continuously and was warm and kind from beginning to end. Compliments to the chef as well. I’ll be back soon! More...
The Hostess, Bernadette, was amazing! Such a wonderful asset to the Orleans Bistro & Grill. The food was A+. We will be visiting again. You must stop in if you are in the area. More...
Excellent restaurant! I love Cajun and this does not disappoint! I had the oyster pivot. The oysters were lightly fried with a perfectly crispy coating and obviously fresh. The aioli sauce was every bit as good as in New Orleans. My husband had the Orleans Seafood Pasta. It was a huge portion of mussels, crayfish, sausage and shrimp in a white sauce over linguine- also excellent!The waitstaff is absolutely wonderful! The service was quicker than expected. Well worth a stop! We will return! More...
