A little out of the way, but worth the trip. Excellent crawfish, great staff, and authentic live Cajun music with plenty of room to dance.

Food is very good. Atmosphere is casual and friendly. Take note, there is live music. Very loud live music. If your idea of a night out is a quiet evening, do not go here. If you want to hear and taste Cajun music and Cajun food, this is the place. Recommend. Warning: It is definitely out of the way.

D.I's has a history and that's why it is located basically in the middle of the crawfish and rice fields of his property. D.I. used to host community crawfish boils in his barn and that's how it grew into a restaurant. The food is excellent; the atmosphere is family-oriented and it's a good ol' place to settle in for an... More

I love coming to Louisiana to begin with, and eating the cuisine is just another bonus!! But I have to admit, the food at DI's is some of the BEST I have ever eaten!!! My brother in law and sister took my family here and we ate with abandon!!! The taste was incredible!!! Everything was so fresh and flavorful! I... More

You will never experience anything as exciting as witnessing the Mardi Gras running through DI's restaurant! Even if you go on an ordinary night, this restaurant has a spectacular menu (go for the crawfish: fresh, peppery and delicious!) and exceptional service. Food is served promptly and there is more than enough on each plate. The drinks are a bonus (Margarita?... More

Favorite local resturant. Food always consistent. All the food is awesome but the Bar-B-Q crabs will make you slap your Mama their so good. My grand kids love the crabs and fried alligator bites.

D.I.'s has good food, excellent music when "The Cajun Tradition Band" plays. Restaurant and music is for families, young and older. People are so friendly, that is why we went back a second time. People can dance with their small children, you can enjoy eating, listening to music and dance.

Our group of 8 was seated promptly with no reservation, and no waiting list. It was a Wednesday evening and no entertainment, so not a large dining crowd. We had a broad range of food--crawfish, seafood platter, blackened oysters, Po' Boy, even a chicken salad sandwich. Everyone gave their meal a hearty "thumbs up".. The service was prompt, orders were... More

First off let me say that some of these reviews are not true. I go to D.I.'s all the time and ANYONE can dance on the dance floor including kids. I actually have video proof for that. It's such a friendly place and the waiters are always so sweet there. It's very very Cajun. Me and my fiancé love it... More
