This is the best Cajun food I have had since being in New Orleans. Extensive menu. Amazing drinks. Great dessert. Friendly waitstaff. Will definitely be back.

We only get to Marquette once a year for a hockey tournament, but when we do you bet we go to Lagniappe! Went for Dinner this time, there were four adults, we were all pleased with the extensive beer menu! Server was very good and eager to help us make decisions! We started out with an appetizer each and shared.... More

Fantastic canjun and creole food, especially considering how very far away Marquette is from that area of the country! Went here right after I graduated last May, so of course it was absolutely packed. I know they don't take reservations, but they may want to seriously consider doing so as it isn't that big of a place. It all worked... More

We were blown away by the rudeness of the owner of the restaurant. We had a party of 17 for a surprise birthday party. We were told they didn't take reservations. OK - we understood that, but were blown away by the attitude of the owner when we arrived. Can't believe he has any business with the way he acted.... More

What a dish! I eat in Baton Rouge often and this reminded me of being in the Bayou. The downstairs location is one of the best in town, you might have to wait a while, the large dining room packs out. this is a popular place for large parties wanting Great food and good service. Once you eat here you... More

We were in town for a conference and decided we would try this place for dinner. It is an amazing little jem tucked away in the city! We had incredible food, fantastic service, great beer, the band was playing, the atmosphere was welcoming and warm. We started with oysters on the half shell, had cheddar grit crab cakes for an...

Stopped in Marquette as part of our road trip … wandering around the waterfront … happened upon this amazing spot. Great atmosphere! Busy! Large portions … extensive menu …. Hadn't had hush puppies in a very long time … boy, these were great … just like New Orleans. We also tried the gumbo yaya & the seafood bisque … both... More

There were so many choices on the menu, it really was hard to pick just 1 thing. I had the fried chicken - don't really know why except it sounded good. A little bit more food then I would have like to order but for some odd reason that's what I ordered. WOW! It was goooood chicken. And WAY too... More

They don't take reservations, which is fine. So, two of us submitted our name and waited the 30 minutes. The others went next door to grab a beer during the 30 minutes. They then told us they wouldn't seat us unless our full party was there and if anyone else arrived they would give our table away. I thought the... More

Eric and Zack at the bar do a fine job of providing beer selections to match this consistently fine cajun food. Have eaten here weekly since mid June and have been consistently impressed with the variety and quality of the food. A real find in Marquette.
