I had the Chickin & Saugae Gumbo also the jumbo shrimp stuffed with pepper jack cheese wrapped in bacon and fried with a craw fish rue. They both were sooo good and the people were very nice.

This was one of my favorite restaurants in the country and 2nd favorite cajun food for years. About 5 or 6 years ago the food took a turn downhill and we stopped coming here. I decided to give it a try again and I am glad we did. We even ordered the same meal we had years ago (It still... More

Wonderful food - of a Cajun nature. They serenade you with Cajun fiddle and guitar while you eat. You can wave to family members back home through their web camera. They also have authentic souvenirs.

On business trip and sponsor took us here for lunch today. The place is very big and has a really Cajun style atmosphere, meaning pleasant, friendly and inviting. Ordered the Seafood Platter grilled and it came with way too much food, shrimp, frog legs, stuffed crab, stuffed prawn, oysters, etc, etc, it was great, but could not eat it all.... More

Stopped at Prejeans on our way home from the "Cruising the Coast" car show in Biloxi. Love the atmosphere, the Cajun band playing and the good food. We had several appetizers and split an entree.. Almost more food than we could eat. Service was excellent. Look forward to eating here again my next trip to Southern Louisiana.

Dinner last weekend with friends. Impressed that they could accommodate a party of 9 with 5 minutes notice. Service was great. I had the crawfish enchilada, smoked duck gumbo and crab au gratin. Way too much food, but I didn't want to pass on any one of those dishes. Everything was delicious. Several in our group had the spinach salad... More

Wow what an experience! We are wild duck gumbo and listened to cajun music. The place looks and feels like a Bayou setting from a movie. The staff was nice and the food was just great! Would go back any time.

I had dinner here while on a business trip and was very impressed. Everything was great. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, all great. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I had the fried eggplant stuffed with crawfish and shrimp in a cream sauce for my main course, and the fried green tomatoes as my appetizer. Perfect combo. Very... More
