Unless you are looking for seafood forget this place. It's authentic Cajun but the menu is almost all seafood. I don't eat seafood so there was not much to choose. The burger was average. The music was way too loud to facilitate nice dining.

Ate here 19 years ago and a couple of time in between. Shame we were not in crawfish season but the food was still fabulous, the band great the dancing relaxed. It is a barn of a place that is very welcoming to the visitors and you get to appreciate the pucker tastes and sounds of the Cajun way of... More

The locals were right! A group of people suggested we go and we were not disappointed!!! Had the BBQ Crabs. They were out of this world. I will not forget this place and can't wait to go again. Amazing food and the staff were lots of fun too.

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.
