Excellant Cajun Food

This is the first time we've eated dinner here and it was as good as ever. However, if you want any po boy's you better go for lunch, because at dinner they only serve dinner.....duh.

Excellent Cajun food in downtown Fayetteville, I eat here every time I stay in Fayetteville. I have yet to have a meal that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. Give it a try.

This restaurant needs a good cleaning, floors, tables and mini blinds on the windows were all filthy. Coffee was served to me in a cup that looked like it had never been washed, finger prints and smudges. I had to take my napkin and dip it in water to wash the rim of the cup. Food was very mediocre.

First time trying Cafe Rue, not a bit disappointed! The service was excellent, very friendly. I loved the trivia cards on the table. Restaurant was a bit chilly, but quickly changed once the food was served. Flavorful crab cakes. Shrimp pontchartrain was creamy and spiced just right. Baked mac & cheese was a bit dry, but great flavor none-the-less. Finished... More

this is a Cajun restaurant and the food is as good as New Orleans. The only disappointment is there were no oysters on half shell the night we went. Also, we went on a very cold night and since this is a small restaurant surrounded by large windows, it was very cold inside the restaurant. However the food made up... More

select menu items, was delicious and an absurd amount of food still eating left overs. Service was great, but we went early so didn't have anyone else there to start with. It's a little pricey but worth it. I would go again. Wasn't too spicy. Overall great experience.

What a great surprise to find some New Orleans creole cooking in the Ozark's. Don't let the looks of this place concern you, like many great food haunts, Cafe Rue will impress you more with the cuisine more than the atmosphere. Try the stuffed catfish, you will not be disappointed.

Small but really good food. Atmosphere lacks but it,s a good place to go for dinner. The White chocolate bread pudding is to die for. Recommend for Creole foodies.

What a treat. Delicious favors, amazing food value! Appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade. Yes. So good! The two of us ordered 1. The Seafood Platter ( fried shrimp, crawfish, catfish, and crab cake, yum) with Red Beans and Rice, and 2. Shrimp Pontchatrain (Tasso Cream Sauce over pasta). Loved every bite. I ordered the petite serving, and... More

There are not enough Cajun restaurants across the country and this one is definitely good. I like freshness and quantity of most of the food but it does seem like salad is made too far ahead and was wilted. The fried crawfish is lightly fried but I'm not a fan of the remoulade dipping sauce. The étouffée is good but... More
