This restaurant has been around forever for good reason. The food is very good, typical for a good Cajun restaurant. The area where the restaurant has kind of gone down as years have gone by but it is still on HWY 182 so easy to get to. The people are always very nice and service is very good.

I've going to this restaurant for as long as I can remember!!! I had not been in a while and was pleasantly surprised to see the food was still as good as it has always been. They still have the best shrimp creole and fried catfish in Opelousas!

Have been here several times, and have never left disappointed in the food. Staff is attentive to your needs. Moderately priced. Fried seafood is delicious. Has been around a long time.

We were fortunate to be in the Opelousas Louisiana area again at lunch time. Ofcourse we had a wonderful meal at Soileau's Dinner Club. The oysters were fried just like 'Daddy used to make' and the shrimp must have spent the night in the Gulf. The steaks were tender and cooked just right. You can make a take home purchase... More

Traveling through Louisiana and stopped at the Tourist Center on I-49 and asked the lady where we could get some authentic southern fried chicken and she sent us to this restaurant. It is definitely off of the beaten path but the fried chicken and the grilled chicken were both excellent!! It was well worth the time to divert ourselves from... More

This place has always had top notch food for reasonable places. Very quiet for lunch and busy at dinner time. Very good steaks and seafood.

I was in town on business this past weekend and came to eat at Souileau's for dinner. The desk attendant at the hotel I stayed at recommended this restaurant. The food was excellent. I had the seafood gumbo which was the best I have had. The service was also outstanding.

My wife and I were day tripping, driving around aimlessly. We wound up in Opelousas and I wanted some old fashion rustic Cajun food. Being born and raised here I should know what that is. Granted we got there around 3:30 so knew it was in-between times but the place was dead. Our server was very nice and friendly, we... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while visiting in the area, for dinner and for a lunch. Both times we were with a larger group (6 for dinner, about 15 for lunch). They did not seem to be very busy either time, but the service was quite slow. I found the food to be good, but not as tasty as... More
