When you’re craving a taste of New Orleans in Rock City, Faded Rose comes out on top. The restaurant has made a name for itself in the food scene, serving locals Creole comfort food sine 1982.

Since day one, not much has changed about the eatery except a few improvements to the patio. Every day the goal is to offer better service than the one before, and to consistently put out delicious Cajun food.

Which comes easily to New Orleans native Chef/Co-Owner Ed David. These days, David shares the stage with his son, Zac Co-Owner/General Manager. The family atmosphere pervades the front and back of the house, and upon entering the establishment you’re met with a loud, happy bout of chatter from the numerous families you’re likely to find seating at the various tables, enjoying their meal.

The patio is likely to be just as boisterous, as it’s now a haven for outdoor seekers when great weather strikes. Sip Abita on draft beneath an umbrella, and watch the traffic mosey by.

Don’t forget to bring your appetite. Known for serving up an excellent steak dinner, the Faded Rose has a mean gumbo in its arsenal, as well as an excellent soaked salad. Locals will tell you, if you catch the restaurant at the right time of year, you might even catch a delicious restaurant-wide crawfish boil. Around March, the eatery is likely to serve up a boil one day a week – typically Wednesday – serving the spicy mudbugs until they run out.
