Wonderful food

The staff was a little awkward, but extremely pleasant - always smiling and constantly helpful. The shrimp gumbo was authentic and very well prepared - as was the corn chowder. The crab... read more

Unexpectedly and completely by chance, one of the best down to earth Cajun country charm restaurants I have ever been to. Excellent food, with a chef unafraid to speak to everyone and make you feel at home. Great diversified menu, not to over the top spicy. In other words flavorful and thoughtfully prepared food. Nice clean atmosphere with staff willing... More

Eric Weil, owner and chef since 1978, makes wickedly good crab and corn chowder and trout frangelico that bests Emerils. Where Emerils obscures the flavor of the meat with heat and kicking it up a notch and out of bounds, Chef Eric enhances the meat with spice and liqueurs.

If you are looking for good Louisiana cooking, Cafe Lafourche is the place to go. The food is wonderful. The Seafood Stuffed Potatoe is as big as the plate and one of my favorites. There are many choice on the menu and the staff great. P.S. If you are going try to insult someone, learn how to spell first! It... More

Over priced and not good at all. The sirloin tips were a disgusting block of some sort very tough beef. I ordered mine medium and it was very well done. It was tasteless and I'd rather eat my shoe. Our kids had the "kids chicken strips" meal. It wasn't on the menu but the waitress said it was one of... More
