A great way to finish our tour of Louisiana. Great local dishes (plus plenty of alternatives), amazing service, and a friendly and local atmosphere. Busy, but got a table right away. We'd visit again in a heartbeat.More

Authentic Cajun Cuisine for lunch and dinner. Good food and good service. Located on south side of town, a bit out of the way but worth the drive.

It's not a very big place, I would look elsewhere. Prejeans is large and has a room off to the side you could probably request, if cajun food is what you're looking for.
