Very busy we went on a Friday night, but the wait wasn't overly long. Good service and the food had great flavor without being overly hot. Some people think Cajun means hot to the point of not being edible. Good atmosphere and a really cool part of town!

Oh well, the place is always packed so to each his own. Its expensive in my opinion for fish, beans, and rice. used to be very smokey, not non smoking in the new building. Its a tourist trap in my opinion but lots of people love it, so good for them.

If you haven't visited for a meal since the move you are in for the same wonderful food and hospitality, yet the new location provides a whole new level of dining experience.

Best Cajun food since New Orleans. I had a shrimp po-boy my husband had pick 3. They give generous servings. Atmosphere is great. Our server was excellent. My husband had a hard time choosing from their vast menu. He was really happy.

Very good food, but the service wasn't good at all. The new place is very nice and the again, food very good. But the last couple of times we've been, the wait staff wasn't very friendly and they didn't check on us very often. Glasses ran dry I couple of times, once my husband had to take his glass to...

I went because no one else would make a decision about where to eat and the ratings were good. I normally cannot handle spicy but just HAD to try the Etouffe and was not disappointed! I got it with shrimp over pasta. One of my friends got red beans and rice and said it was very good too.

My friend and I had a girls day out on a beautiful fall day and chose to have lunch at Broussard's. The hostess was very accommodating when we asked to be seated by a window. Our waitress was great about accepting my rewards club card, and the craw-fish ettouffee was fantastic as usual! Any time your in Cape Giardeau, MO.... More

Great atmosphere, from the factory setting to the blues music. The jambalaya was some of the best I have ever had. Wow, I'll be back. Even the French bread served with it was good - and very fresh. Next time I come to town, this will be my first stop.

Thank dsherley
