About Us

Mike Anderson was a newcomer, a “rookie” to the restaurant business. But as both a legendary college football great and a retired athlete, he knew that success came with hard work and determination. Formerly an All-American Linebacker at Louisiana State University, Mike was, “literally,” not afraid to tackle anything… including his first restaurant.

Mike Anderson’s Seafood Restaurant originally began as Mike Anderson’s College Town Seafood & Oyster Bar in November 1975. Mike’s first menu only offered a small selection including
po-boys and oysters on the half shell. With the restaruant’s immediate success, both gumbo and boiled seafood were soon added to the menu. Then as they say, “from that point on… the rest was history.”

Now, after over 30 years of dedication and perseverance, Mike Anderson and his TEAM have built a “one-of-a-kind” reputation for the food and service that is available at all of our locations. He has three full-service restaurants and one take-out restaurant to his credit... Baton Rouge, LA (1975), Gonzales (1985), New Orleans, LA - Riverwalk (1986), Central, LA (2013).

Mike Anderson - Gonzales, the second of his accomplishments was established in 1985, 10 years after “the original.” We have progressed tremendously throughout the years to keep up with the continued needs and demands of you, our guest.

At Mike Anderson’s – Gonzales, we pride ourselves in giving you an AWESOME dining experience. In order to serve you “Mike Anderson Style,” with the consistently delicious dishes and excellent service, our entire TEAM must work both “whole-heartedly” and diligently. Mike Anderson’s is blessed with an AWESOME TEAM whose hard work and determination has been a big part of our continued success.

As the Food & Beverage Manager, I have and will continue to instill in our team, the things I have learned from both Harry Robert, my dad, and Mike Anderson, my uncle, to better serve you. We strive to bring you, our guest, delicious food and exceptional service in a comfortable atmosphere.
