I am also a native of Lafayette, I dearly love taking folks from out of town for breakfast,lunch r dinner... I think the music, authentic, needs to be turned down, u can barely hear you table mates...this is the only reason for a 4 star rating... Not one thing to do with the food It is a MUST to eat...

First time visit for this Okie in March proved to me that not all Cajun food comes spicy and/or greasy automatically! Some of the food may seem a little exotic for a non-Cajun, but step out of your comfort zone the way I did and you might be pleasantly surprised. Alligator is too fishy tasting! lol The hush puppies are... More

I'm a local so I feel I can honestly assess that this is authentic Cajun food. The food is really good, your are surrounded by a true Cajun experience complete with a live Cajun band on most nights.

Some restaurants claim to be Cajun, but this one really is. The atmosphere is definitely that of Cajun dining, and the food is not only real Cajun, but top quality Cajun.

Its good food and the atmosphere is great. Food is good but very rich and heavy. Lots of cream sauces and cheese. Go with an appetite. Definitely worth trying. Safe choice.

we visited Prejeans when we were staying in Lafayette as part of a two week tour of southern USA. It was recommended to us during the day. The staff are excellent and very friendly there is a lovely little gift shop and it's easy to get to. When we were there a traditional band was playing and the décor is... More

Perhaps I'm just not into the kind of stuff, perhaps I like my prawns left unadulterated. Wrapping it in bacon, then cheese, then breadcrumbs, then deep frying it to oblivion isn't doing the poor thing justice. Can't work out the sweet tarts that seem to accompany mains either. As I say, it's perhaps me! Not quite sure where the French... More

The restaurant is hugely popular and very large, if you are looking for a quiet romantic night out this is probably not for you. On the recommendation of our most knowledgeable and accommodating server I had the Catfish Oscar Prejean and my wife had Oyster Rockefeller Bake. Both were excellent but huge. From our observation all the entrees seem to... More

One of the best gumbo I have tasted after spending three days on New Orleans. It was not as thick as Naw'lins gumbo but rather rich taste of crawfish and tons of Creole or Cajun flavors. It is a bit spicy for an average NorthEasterner but adding the rice will tone down the flavor. Green fried tomatoes are just fine.... More

As we traveled the Interstate we noticed the parking lot at this restaurant was full of cars. We stopped and went in and found a very large dining room with red and white checked table cloths on each table plus Louisiana décor throughout the restaurant. The service was excellent. Ordered the blackened baked fish and my spouse ordered the chicken... More
