Really liked coming to the Praline Connection during my recent trip to New Orleans, I came here twice! On my first visit, I only ordered the seafood gumbo, their "File Gumbo" and I was really happy with that experience. It came with half a crab and a chicken wing! The flavor was good, could have been spicier, but I was generally happ ... read more

VEGAN REVIEW:This is a surprisingly good place for vegans to eat! I had the Red Beans and Rice listed under the "Soul Food Specialty" section and a side of collard greens. My entree came with corn bread too, but I didn't eat it because I didn't know what was in it. The red beans and rice dish, although simple, was really filling and ... read more

The Praline Connection is a good stop for comfort food and standard southern cuisine. My only complaint is that the service was a bit slow especially for mid-afternoon, but that's obviously situational.

Service was excellent! Food was delicious if you're craving southern cooking and you're dining out. If you are familiar with southern cooking then I would say it is no better or worse than you or someone you know makes at home. Dining out being the key words here. On the Praline side, Pralines were good but I must have caught the sta ... read more

Great food, friendly staff, and a nice experience. We enjoyed a nice dinner here at The Praline Connection. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The catfish and shrimp were spectacular and I really enjoyed the seasoning. We would definetly come back again! Expect to pay between $14-30 per person.
