Food is good but too expensive. Creole plate with 6-7 shrimp is over $17. Two people with sweet tea comes to $40. I don’t see this place lasting long with the prices which is too bad because the staff is super friendly and the food...More

We stopped here for lunch recently and were thrilled with the authentic cajun offerings on the menu! We paid a bit more than we would normally pay for lunch (it seems the same menu/prices apply for lunch or dinner); but overall were so pleased with...More

Best shrimp Po Boy ever. Packed with shrimp. Everything was so fresh. My husband and I split a 12" one. Great service. Highly recommend.

When we returned to Hendo after 7 months away, we were delighted to find a Cajun restaurant! Food is authentic, plus they make their own ice cream. Owners came here after Hurricane Katrina hit the bayous, so the food is authentic. Great service, too!

We had a great lunch at Dat's Cajun. Friendly service and hearty portions. They also make their own ice cream. Not much atmosphere but loved the food. We're local so we'll be back.

Entranced by the raves about Dat's Pecan Bread Pudding with Butter Pecan Ice Cream on top for dessert, I knew I wanted that - as did my husband, whose favorite dessert is bread pudding. We were not disappointed. It was fabulous! The creamiest butter pecan...More
