World Famous...For A Reason

Gumbo is a New Orleans staple and here at Gumbo YaYa we’ve taken gumbo to an art form. Our location in the historic Jax Brewery building serves the very best of this Louisiana concoction along with a host of other culinary delights sure to please every palette.

Let’s start at the very beginning – our crafted Gumbos. Our namesake Gumbo YaYa is a mixture of gulf shrimp, oyster blue crab, chicken and andouille sausage. Choose from other scrumptious recipes like our Chicken and Sausage and Seafood and Okra gumbo or, if you’re not in the mood for gumbo (and there may be a time) we have several other local favorites, fried seafood platters, and AMAZING sandwiches and Po’ Boys for your pleasure. Add in fabulous cocktails, a robust kids menu and desserts, desserts and more desserts and this will be the ONLY place you’ll want to stop

For the early (or not so) early birds, don't miss out on our ALL DAY breakfast and bottomless mimosas for $16 (until 4pm daily)!
