Loved it..

Great food, great service, great music. Absolutely loved the Cajun band - the food was delicious, with typically over-generous American portion sizes (to my British taste....) And Alligator really does taste ;ike chicken....

We love this restaurant. The seafood and sauces are wonderful. The bread pudding is perfect, and even better with extra sauce. Our server was very good. She graciously helped me make a couple of changes in my order to meet my dietary requirements. Everything was fresh and food arrived quickly. They will accommodate large groups with enough servers to take... More

My shrimp gumbo was a dark mess with a few hard shrimps. Flavor was very hot even with rice. I couldn't eat it. Husbands fried catfish was soggy although we ordered extra crispy. We're just used to better food. Bread was good.

The atmosphere was great, the Cajun band was great, the service acceptable, the prices were acceptable. The food was not exactly what we had expected from prior reviews and we are not picky. I would recommend you try it and form your own opinion. All in all we had a great time listening to the band and taking in the... More

Everything was very over the top Louisiana. You get exactly what you expect, huge portions, buttery bread and greasy fried. Nothing I tasted was exceptional but it was good. Service was a bit slow.

We were in the area for a business trip for my husband, but this place is a local favorite that had been recommended many times. It was excellent! We enjoyed live music

We had dinner there of Sunday evening during Memorial weekend. The place is nice, there is a band who plays one song and pauses for 5 between 2 !!! but where we got mad is at our waiter. We ordered 2 glasses of Pinot noir. One was at 6.50 and the other at 11$. We wanted the first one and... More

Keep a pitcher of iced water or sweet tea nearby because the seasoning here will necessitate cooling down! Prejean's is one of the most easily accessible, decently priced for a special night out, and Cajun authentic restaurants in the area. Go at an off peak hour for good service--any individual will get frazzled under the number of diners demanding attention,... More

The food was as good as our last visit. The service was less than stellar. Our waiter was very frazzled. I will say that his service area was spread out around the dining room. I was not impressed with our service. Will I go there again? Yes, I will give it another try because our first visit was outstanding.
