Nice, comfortable atmosphere and pleasant staff. The pistolette was awesome! Great etouffee and fried crawfish as well. I can't want to go back and explore more of their menu.

On a very cold night we brought guests from New England to this small, cozy restaurant. Live music, a common occurrence in Austin, added to the ambiance. We started the meal with gator bites and stuffed pistolette for the table. I found the gator bites a tad chewy but then I had never tastes gator. Though chewy, they were good.... More

Really good food. I recommend the stuffed redfish. Our waitress was super friendly and the atmosphere was fun. The staff was very friendly. We would definitely eat here again.

We tried the Shrimp and Crawfish Étouffée and it was really good. Fried pickles for the appetizer were also great. We went on a very busy night...Friday night before Valentine's Day, and were seated in about 20 min. We will be back! We have been eating out in Austin for years and just found this place. Wish we had found... More

This was a great little place to eat. It isn't fancy (not even close) but the food is excellent and the prices are great. We both got étouffée, and it was delicious. The place was packed but we didn't wait too long. Definitely will be returning.

Dropped in with a party of 8 about an hour after a UT football game on a Saturday night (they don't take reservations). Menus and a wine list were provided immediately, and drinks were served promptly. This is not a "New Orleans Elegant" restaurant; it's a Cajun place in a strip center in laid-back Southwest Austin. Think New Iberia or... More

Stopped here the first time while exploring the area around our new neighborhood. What a great find! Located in a nondescript strip mall off Brodie north of Slaughter this small local joint is big on some great food that is not the standard fare of the area (Mexican or BBQ). Since our fist visit we've been back and I am... More

We were not looking for a fun, rowdy restaurant with live music. We were looking for a real New Orleans/Cajun restaurant to satisfy our craving. Coming from Louisiana and New Orleans, regularly cooking our Cajun dishes at home and recently having some of the best Canjun dishes at The Real New Orleans Style Restaurant (TRNOSR) in Marble Fall, we came...
