Good basic breakfast menu, a bit short. Goof Orange Juice. Service a little up and down, appears they were focused on getting ready for lunch. Portions were a little large, but process very resaonable. They might offer a Senior Discount for 70% of standard portion size and increase margins.

If you are looking for awesome Cajun ambience, this is the place for you. The décor is very authentic, as well as the food. The shrimp and grits for breakfast is outstanding. The breakfast itself is outstanding - all of it. You can also chow down on some great alligator bites, boudin balls, and crawfish etoufee. It's a little pricey... More

My son and I had lunch on a Sunday at Prejean's. They had a Cajun band playing. We were given rolls and butter after ordering. The butter was board line frozen and the bread was not hot, not even warm. My son ordered the crawfish etouffee and fried crawfish. He enjoyed it. I ordered two sides as my meal, crawfish... More

My husband mentioned this place every time we go to Houston, so we decided to just ride over and dine. The food was ok. We ordered "a little bit of everything" was the name of the appetizer and tea. We wanted to make sure how things tasted before ordering a complete meal. The appetizer was really good: boudin, fried gator,... More

We were drawn by the music. Cajun. Not too loud. And we enjoyed our meal as well.We shared the alligator bites. I had the fried shrimp. There were 12 big ones! I requested a switch from fries to baked potato and that request was honored. We finished it off with pecan/yam pie. It was warm, topped with whipped cream, and... More

Their menu has a really good variety of Cajun cuisine. The gumbos are all great. The seafood dishes have plenty of local seafood and everything has a lot of Cajun spice. The lunch menu is a little different than the dinner menu. During the week they have daily lunch specials.

This well known Resturant have always been a joy to visit. The hostess and waitress are very pleasant and do a great job in asking often what do you need, is everything ok and see to your needs in a timely manner. The food is presented so appetizing and very nice portion size!
