Look inside and find your mother waiting on you. We took some friends from CO to see alligators at Lafitte National Park and then went to Boutte's for lunch. We had the frog legs, Supreme shrimp and seafood gumbo. Everything was great. We stopped there because of our belief: 'When in a new area stop where all the cars are"... More

Finding a great down-home restaurant with friendly service like this a real treat. We had just finished our 'Airboat Adventure' at noon, and a local had recommended this place. They had soft-shelled crabs on special that day, and we latched right on to those along with a side of fresh shrimp and taters. After dining at several fancier and more... More

There are not too many restaurants to chose from in this area of Louisiana and I had not been in there for several years. The staff were very friendly but, like many Cajun restaurants in South Louisiana, they do not make the most of what they have. There is a large dining room overlooking the bayou but that is closed...

As a native New Orleanian I have a choice of several excellent seafood restaurants (plain and fancy) within a mile of my home. So why would I drive almost 30 miles to get to Boutte's? First, on a beautiful spring day a trip to Jean Lafitte Park/Preserve is a joy. After a half-hour or so walking the boardwalk through this... More

the waitress was very polite and recommended the specials of the day. My girlfriend visited after visiting the state park and we liked it so much we went back with our husbands. If you like eating with the locals this is a great resturant and a must visit. The food was delicious!

We had the most unexpected lunch at Boutte's. Not much to look at from the outside, but inside was delightful. The nicest Cajun ladies work there! Hugged us when we left. Excellent gumbo and po' boys. Lovely artwork on the walls. Very clean. It breaks my heart to think it may be flooded now due to Hurricane Issac. The people... More

The biggest draw is the ambience which is great. It feels very real with no artifice whatsoever. The food is very basic: good quality fried seafood with no artifice. The drive from New Orleans is fun with great scenery along the way. The staff was so kind and gracious we would go back just for them. They showed us the... More
