Food is always consistent and good. Waitstaff are not professionally trained. Decor is very outdated and dark. I prefer to order take out over dining there.

My family and I visited this restaurant with a friend and his mother. Although our friend had never been there, his mother had. I ordered linguini with alfredo sauce and shrimp. The sauce was average, and the shrimp was very spicy. I do, however, have a very mild palette. We also ordered a steak dish, which was overdone and over-spiced.... More

After a weekend in NOLA and ready to escape the hustle and bustle of Mardi Gras my husband and I decided to try something different. We were very pleasantly surprised... Seeing how there had been no recent reviews posted. My husband ordered the Gourmet Special - AMAZING!! Be hungry - shrimp creole, stuffed crab, fried crab fingers, stuffed bell pepper,... More

If you aren't into ANY fast food at all and are seeking another place to go in Opelousas, here is a great gem. They have delicious lunch specials and I've never had a bad meal here. Gumbo is great, fried shrimp are seasoned perfectly, and the stuffed potatoes are wonderful.

Have eaten @ Soileau's many times over the past 15 years, and it is ALWAYS good, sometimes even great. This is NOT "fast food" so, don't think you're going to "get in and out" in 15-25 minutes!

Their food, specifically the SOUR STUFFED POTATOES gave me & my whole famly DIARRHEA!! I know for a fact this happened because of those potatoes because we all ordered the exact same thing! They leave these potatoes out all day and are not fresh at all! This was a horrible experience and when we reported this to the owner's son... More

Soileau's Dinner Club has been serving good Cajun food in Opelousas for well over 50 years. The servers are always pleasant and many of them have been there for decades, so the managers must be good people to work for, and the servers convey that good will to their customers. On our recent visit, my wife and I and our... More

The building and interior don't offer you any ambiance at all, unfortunately. However, since it was recommended, we stayed. The food was very very good and the portions were beyond generous. They make a very good shrimp gumbo and the fried oysters were delicious. The fried shrimp were just average. The food might bring me back, but I found the... More

The restaurant is floored with terrazzo and has plastic table cloths. The utensils are cheap and come in wax paper envelopes BUT the food is unbeatable. It is fun to sample the ambiance of the area while eating in a small town. I ordered a hamburger patty for something light - wrong - it was like a pound of meat... More

First off, let me say our server made us feel like we were sitting in her dining room at home! That was awesome. Menu choices are good and the food is a good representation of what you expect with Cajun cuisine. Broths were tangy and thick. Seaford was abundant and flavorful. Prices were decent. Good lunch specials as well. Definitely... More
