Not so good

I went to Cajun Landing in my way through Alexandria. Got the tip to go from Trip Advisor. I really hate to think this is the 3rd best in Alec! Not so much. Service was bad. Good was edible but nothing to get excited about.

I am from SW Louisiana, where we have some great seafood places ! I'm always skeptical when I travel north of U.S. Hwy 190 to eat "Cajun Seafood" I've passed this place numerous times and never stopped. I took my wife & 21 year old son to eat out here last night. Everything, and I mean everything was GREAT !!... More

We were spending the night in Alexandria and Tracy, at the Comfort Suites, recommended Cajun Landing for dinner. Food was wonderful and large portions. Definitely recommend getting the bread pudding-enough for 2 people.

A great meal of Catfish Blackjack and cajun rice with bread pudding for dessert. Really hit the spot. Service was a little slow however.

I have eaten at Cajun Landing many times in the past and have recommended it many times, but on our last visit the food was horrid. It was my sister's anniversary so my husband and I accompanied them. She is a big fan of the char grilled oysters, but on this night they took a long time to arrive and... More

We visited the restaurant for our anniversary. Nice ambiance. Excellent service. We ordered the seafood sampler. We were very disappointed. The food quality was similar to deep fried fast food at quality restaurant price. Perhaps other menu items are better quality. The key lime pie was good.

We visited on a week night and was seated right away. The staff was friendly and provided great service. The crab cakes are good. I had the fried catfish, which was very tasty, but I found it to be a little pricey. I would visit again.

The gumbo was great a roux based version. We also had the seafood 4 by 4. This was 4 each of three varieties oysters on the half shell. Breaded Parmesan, spicy breaded and Florentine/bacon. All great. The fourth was deep fried crawfish tails. These were just OK, breading was good, but couldn't really taste the crawfish. Etouffe great. Also can... More

We always stop here on our travels through Alexandria. The atmosphere is very cozy and food is excellent. The bisque is amazing! I could just dine on that alone along with the great fried cheesecake for dessert. (Also amazing). I would recommend anything here. We keep coming back.
