Authentic food and atmosphere

We had lunch here and it was amazing! Jacqueline herself welcomed us and started cooking (we just said we love fish and she wanted to surprise us). The fish and crab gumbo was very good, just like her chocolate pie.

What a disappointment - after reading the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor we arrived at Chez Jacqueline at shortly after 7:00 pm and found the place closed! Teaches us to call next time before driving around.

What a wonderful place we stumbled into! Jacqueline met us at the door, took our order, went back and cooked it and served with a smile and conversation. She was a hoot and the food was incredible! Best seafood Gumbo and bisque ever!!

Everything on the menu is home cooked! No shortcuts in any of the dishes. All our traditional Cajun foods - so delicious with local spices. This is a small restaurant. The menu is listed on a chalk board in the front - make sure you look at it carefully, and know what you want! This is not a "rush" meal....take... More

We were at Chez Jacqueline in February after a Swamp Tour with the famous Norbert LeBlanc. When samed were we couldcould go for a good meal, he immediately suggested that we go to Chez Jacqueline. What a good suggestion. Jacqueline welcomed us and after suggested to prepare a dish that would meet our preference without exactly saying what she was... More

In one of those Louisiana pre-Civil War, and somewhat prehistoric village/town, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. This roughly finished out wooden interior with a screen door, and furnished with old wooden tables and chairs there is this restaurant is attended to and watched over by Jacqueline and her daughter Joy. There's a wooden sign outside the screen door leading in that reads... More

The place has the appealing charm of old places. We are French and were not fully convinced by the dishes we selected, but everything was homemade and cooked with butter. Engaging with Jacqueline, who came from France more than forty years ago, is definitely part of the one of a kind type of experience you can have at the heart... More

We drive through this area once a year. Stopping here is a must. We had dinner one day and breakfast there two days later. Nothing fast food or canned type of foods, just real good cooking. Plenty of excellent food at a good price. All meals made fresh. Definitely, our most favorite restaurant on our travels.

After one visit, Chez Jacqueline is officially my favorite restaurant. Besides being an amazing chef and hostess, ma chere Jacqueline is just plain fun to be around! It reminded me of eating at my favorite aunt's when I was a kid, except, my aunt Amande couldn't make escargot nearly as good as Jacqueline, and that says a lot! If you... More

We did not plan to come here. Just a block up the street is a restaurant on everyone's list of "must go to's" known for the Zydeco Breakfast and music.But when we got there (a Saturday morning and won't accept reservations), it was so packed it was unthinkable to wait for up to 2 hours, just to get in!
