The restaurants was busy and lively but service was really efficient and spot on. We really enjoyed our boiled shrimp, chicken and sausage gumbo and fried crab with okra... read more

This is one of my favorite restaurants when i am in the area always stop in love the soft shell crabs this time tried the shrimp and crab cake with crawfish cream sauce on top was delicious. Even though i prefer the seafood here my husband tried the chicken fried steak and he said it was delicious.

We are from Indiana. Fresh seafood and Cajun are not words you hear often, so we wanted to try the real stuff. If this is not authentic I can still die a happy woman. I had the seafood special with grilled vegetables. Good. .it was all just plain good. Service was prompt and the atmosphere fun. Make time for this... More

February 11, 2015, my Brother-in-Law and I drove past your restaurant while in route to purchase a boat and motor from a local Houma resident. I've lived in Louisiana my entire life, 61+ years. For many years Bou & Thib jokes were only shared, enjoyed, and understood by those of us who live in and LOVE the Great State of... More

The food is delicious. Come hungry or be willing to take home doggy bag because portions are large. The Boudreaux Thibodaux special is shrimp and crabmeat deep fried golden brown with crawfish etoufee on top served with garden or potato salad and your two sides of choice. This was definitely a good choice for a New Years Eve meal.

I love their chicken and sausage gumbo. They serve it with a side of potato salad. I wish they served a larger portion of potato salad. The food is really good here.
