I went to Melba's for lunch on my birthday. The food was good. I just wish it would have been hot. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars. The service was good.

Omggggggaaaa if I could give 100 stars I would. Came to NOLA a few years ago and stumbled upon this place while out drinking. Could never remember the name. Came across it this weekend after someone told me about this place next to a laundry mat and I was like yaaaaaasssss!!!! Ordered Like 10 meals..... for me.

It was a really Late night / early morning in New Orleans and everything was closed but Melba’s. Very grateful for the southern hospitality and delicious seafood.

Where the locals eat with good prices. Extensive menu. Open 24 hours per day. Safe neighborhood. Ample parking available. One bread pudding could feed a family of four.

Good food. The service could definitely be better... But then it was 3am on a Tuesday. After one (and only one) visit, I would suggest that you be very clear about exactly what you want from the beginning....... Otherwise, very highly recommended.

If you don’t think food can change your life, you’ve obviously never had Melba’s shrimp and grits! One bite and I transformed into a better version of myself, my kids started listening, my man said he loved me even more, my wrinkles disappeared, my gray hairs corrected themselves, and my boss called to give me a raise! Ok. None of th ... read more

I didn't go inside of Melba's but my ribs and corn gris were delicious.
Karla Harris via - Jul 11, 2021
Delicious tastes of New Orleans dishes and local artists' work displayed all over the place. The shrimp and grits had me emotional, it was that good! My husband had a hot sausage po boy. The sausage was not spicy but it was still really tasty. If you're in New Orleans, please go eat there.

One of the most authentic and cultured joints in NOLA. Can't go wrong with anything they serve and the place is filled with great folks and everything you need.

Everything was so good that I want to go back and get some of everything else🥰. Haven't had Melbas since 2018 and it's still as good as I remember! I didn't eat meat then and had ribs and what looked like general chicken, I can't stop eating and I am already full, this meat is tender and so full of flavor. The meat sweats will be w ... read more

A surprise find after a night of partying on Bourbon Street. It is located next to a laundry mat, or within a laundry mat I can't be sure because above the dryers and washing machines I noticed signs for the restaurant informing you of food pricing. It was quite strange, but advertising is advertising right. It added to the charm in ... read more
