The food is awesome. I go there every chance I can get. I go there about one a week and everything meets expectations as far as the way my steaks are cooked and service

Sublette's fish entrees were what our group came to eat. The restaurant is well lit with many tables and booths available along with a choice to dine in the family room or in the bar. The restaurant doesn't open early but we were able to dine quickly once it opened. As another trip advisor mentioned Sublette's is easy to find... More

Went here over the Memorial Day weekend. They had no ribs left even thought the place was 1/4 full. Everything else was decent, but 3 of our 5 diners meat was a little dry. Green beans were canned with bacon mixed in. Service staff thought it was OK to vacuum and restock tables while people were eating for some reason... More

We went there and of course ordered ribs because that's what they are known for. The ribs were dry and tough and the sauce was horrible that they put on it. My husband had pork chops and those weren't bad but not stellar either. Its just your basic family dining restaurant, nothing special

Service was pathetically slow so I left. Service is not a priority here so if you care for that at all, eat elsewhere. If I ever try their ribs, it'll be take out, but don't count on my business.

Barbecue I could make at home, nice clean atmosphere with thoughtful service. if you want real barbecue and a genuine southern atmosphere with blues and tubs of dipping sauce try South Street Barbecue in Lafayette and skip the Sublette.

Very congenial hostess and waitresses, food was tasty and filling but took too long to arrive. If you don't mind the wait, not a bad place to eat.

My husband and I ordered our food and drinks at the same time-that's how long we waited for initial contact with our waitress. After we received our food we never saw our waitress again until she brought the bill. We we're never asked if we wanted drink refills or if the food was okay. Food arrived luke warm. Big disappointment... More
