Friendly staff and quick service. Everyone at our table ordered the Crawfish Etouffe and we had plenty of leftovers! Food was seasoned perfectly and very delicious. Definitely would visit again!

Loved the atmosphere, wait staff, and most of all the jambalaya! I highly recommend this place if you are in the beautiful town of Ellijay. Yummmmm.

This place is amazing. I never thought I could find Cajun food in North Georgia. I had the catfish. It was amazing. We had more food than we could eat. I don't think they could do any better in Louisiana. Try it. You definitely won't regret it.

We've eaten at this restaurant several times over the years that we've lived here, and, like so many others, is adequate, but could be so much better. They seldom (if ever) change their menu, and nothing is just fabulous as far as we are concerned. If you're not big on fried catfish, or other fried fish, then you're out of... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! The waitress was friendly and explained the dishes in detail making recommendations. The atmosphere was pleasant..although we thought the music should be New Orleans style instead of Rock. But, that is just personal preference because we like the music to match the style of the...

Long wait even though there we're open tables. Alfredo sauce was bland; wouldn't order again. Friendly staff.

Slightly off the downtown beaten path in an old converted hotel building is Ellijay's own New Orleans Cajun restaurant. With authentic barbecue shrimp, étouffée and gumbo, the Cajun Depot is a gem to be discovered tucked away beside the tracks away from town. The only thing keeping this rating from being five star was the lack of true crispy New... More
