There are some "musts" here...one of the craft beers on tap or bottled, the crawfish cornbread to start and the whiskey bread pudding to end. Fill in the middle with whatever you're craving at the time as it's all good. This is not your fancy date night place, but it is your cajun down-home cooking at it's best. Watch for... More

We are in the "been driving by for years, but finally decided to go" group. It was a Sunday afternoon and there were only 2 other couples there besides us. The food took FOREVER to come out. Which was weird since there was no crowd. Hubby had chicken creole and he said it was good, but overpriced. He also had... More

I have passed this place so many times but never stopped. Finally we decided to do lunch and happen to be in the area so we stopped in. Of course we checked on trip advisor first and saw the good rating. We shared the crawfish cornbread and fried green tomatoes. For the main course I had the crab cakes which... More

Understated, yes, but sitting on the porch at Cajun Cafe and watching the sunset is a lot like turning back the clock and going back to a time when things were simple, the food was home-cooked and delicious, and service came with a smile that was genuine. That's what our server, Josh, delivered last Saturday, along with Cajun dishes that... More

Even the grandkids like this food. Warm, hearty and plenty of spice. Our table had the Jambalaya, Crawfish Cornbread, Creole Gumbo, Crab Cakes, and Shrimp. Food was filling and the setting was on a bayou in the Bardmoor area. While eating a boat approached and pulled up a filled crabtrap They separated those too small and moved on with a... More

We went to the Cajun Café on the Bayou for my birthday. It's been a long time since I've been here, before the current husband and wife owned it. Right on a real Bayou, and the décor made me think of a shack and it's not made to look this way. Wall A/C units don't properly cool the inside. It's... More

We dine here at least once a month and this is by far our favorite casual dining restaurant. The Crawfish Étouffée is outstanding (in fact, whenever we are in New Orleans or somewhere in Louisiana, we miss their Étouffée) and the Crawfish Cornbread is to die for. It's a little spendy but absolutely worth it. My favorite part about this... More

We have eaten here occasionally for several years. One thing, if it says HOT then it is very HOT and I really like hot food. The only problem is that it is a bit pricey for what it is and unless you really like big crowds don't go there when they are having a crawfish or zydeco festival.
