Charming restaurant in an old house

The waitress was friendly and laid back so she didn't get in any hurry to take our order or check on us much. Irritated my husband, but it didn't bother me - especially since the food was freshly cooked and delicious. I had the crab cakes and hubby had the fried catfish. There's a parking lot... read more

Irritated my husband, but it didn't bother me - especially since the food was freshly cooked and delicious. I had the crab cakes and hubby had the fried catfish. There's a parking lot across the street.

My wife and I have been recently to dine at St. John restaurant in St. Martinville, La. The food was wonderful, service was great, and found the staff very efficient and friendly. Would definitely recommend dining there.

This small gem is tucked away in St. Martinville, a short drive from Lafayette. But wow is it worth the drive. Their lump crab cakes are the best. Period. Took my BFF here a while back for the first time and she insisted on a repeat trip. Decided to have have it with grill veggies this time and they were... More

You would not enter by judging only the front of this small restaurant. But all the locals come here and are enthousiast about this place. And indeed, the food is really fresh, homemade and good value for money. Staff is friendly and accurate. Try the chefs specialties. Beer in the bottle !

Cutest town in the world with very down to earth local food. Check facebook for their specials. Only drawback -- we usually need french bread.

We went for lunch on a Friday during Lent and the place was cram packed! The special was generous and consisted of fried catfish, fried shrimp, seafood cake, a tasty salad, bread and a side for a reasonable price! We also liked the vanilla cinn. sugar they provided for our sweet potatoes. I suggest that if it is crowded you... More

We ordered the crab cake boulettes, shrimp platter, and stuffed crab. Also had gumbo, salads, bread pudding and cheesecake. Everything was rich and delicious! Wear your stretchy pants because the portions are huge! Our server was outstanding. All the locals eat here. Perfect atmosphere!

Place is rather small, but food is great. (A new building is being constructed) The building is very old and was relocated from another location.

Found this place on Trip Advisor. Has been years since I have been to St. Martinville so I decided to ride out that way. Lot of beautiful homes on 31. After turning on Bridge St. I initially missed the restaurant. After making a block and coming back I found it. Sign is in bad shape. But I am quite sure... More
