Wow!!

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.

Excellent place for seafood in North Georgia. The cook actually knows how to fry seafood. Seafood was as good or better than most places on the Gulf Coast.

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

We ate at most of the top rated restaurants in Ellijay and found this place has the best flavors. Service was also very good as well. We liked our lunch so much we came back for dinner!

This is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta and North Georgia. My wife and I usually have the red beans and rice with hush puppies as an appetizer and then share the blackened chicken with vegetables. Everything is always outstanding. We were in New Orleans last year and we like the cajun food better here! Absolutely love this place! Great service... More

Delicious food. Fast and friendly service. Crab cakes were just top notch. Red beans and rice dish was flavorful and yummy. Jambalaya had the most tender and juicy smoked sausage I've ever had. We will certainly be returning in the near future!
