We weren't very hungry but wanted to try this restaurant for a long time, having had cajun last on the coast of Texas. We had a light lunch there this Sunday. Instead of splitting a dinner, we diversified by each having a side dish, one...More

Dat has cajun roots and it shows. Gumbo and other dishes simmered for hours. Unique flavors. Family and community workers. Eat locally.

Delicious authentic NOLA cafe. Small cafe, but a wonderful experience. We very much enjoyed the shrimp poboy, shrimp Creole, Chicken fingers, mac and cheese, and not yo mamas lagasana. Large portions. Staff and servers were very friendly and attentive. We will most definitely be back!...More
