Stopped here for lunch while traveling back home from Florida. This restaurant was recommended by a friend from Louisiana. It was everything he promised. The restaurant is clean, the service was good and the food outstanding! The Alligator Tail was my favorite. If you are traveling near Lafayette you have to stop here and try the food.

The service was excellent, the food was sooo good (loved the chicken & sausage gumbo), and the live music was perfect! If we're ever in the area again, we will definitely go back!

I LOVED the crawfish enchildada it was amazing, maybe the best thing I've ever had except for their hushpuppies. Rolls were delicious, great ambiance. The sweet potatoe pecan pie and the peanut pie were also amazing. Loved it, going back as soon as I travel through there again!!!

My sister and her family from Memphis were in town and wanted some good Cajun Style seafood. They moved from Louisiana about 15 years ago. We showed up in a Saturday night. Had a 10 minute wait and was seated. Appetizers of bacon wrapped shrimp were delicious. Several of us had the seafood platters and no complaint. The gumbo was... More

From the fourteen foot alligator running down the staircase to the casual set dinner tables with rolls of paper towels set inside Bruce Yam cans on them, this place says Cajun. Open for three meals a day, live Cajun music with dinner, a good bar and excellent food, it's hard to beat!

Catfish Oscar, Pepper Jack Shrimp and Blackened Catfish Etouffee...all amazing dishes. They have the best chicken and sausage gumbo. The white chocolate bread pudding is to die for!! The decor is awesome and the live music is fun!! We have eaten her many times, always with our children, 8, 7 and 2. They love the fried shrimp and live music!!
