In September 1969 Harold Legaux Sr. along with his wife Belle opened Harold and Belle's. It had been a dream of Harold's to have a place where freinds from home (New Orleans) would gather, talk over old times, shoot pool, and socialize. His kitchen was small and the menu was simple. It featured Po-Boy Sandwiches, Red Beans and Rice and File Gumbo served only on Friday.
After the passing of Harold Sr. in 1979, Harold Jr. and his wife Denise took over the full operation of the restaurant. Unlike his father who enjoyed the pool playing, and bar atmosphere, the younger Harold preferred a finer dining environment with linen table cloths and candle lights. Having a passion for cooking, Harold Jr. introduced several new items to the menu including Shrimp Scampi, Shrimp Creole, Crawfish Etouffee and Clam Chowder. He even offered Gumbo every day.
In 1984 Harold and Denise brought in partners Al and Sue Honore. Together they expanded the restaurant from 12 dining tables to 35 dining tables, and the kitchen has tripled in size. In 2002 Ryan Legaux, the son of Harold Jr. returned to the restaurant to work full time and is now General Manager. Together they are involved with the daily operations and have taken Harold and Belle's above and beyond Harold Sr.'s original dream.
