This is one of my favorites in Cape. I love Cajun food and they've got it. I also love crawfish and this is the only place in the area I know to get them. Food is great and you should try it at least once.

Who would have thought you could find an outstanding New Orleans cajun restaurant in Cape Girardeau, MO. That's exactly what Broussard's is; being new to the area I was skeptical when I was told that. I'm now living in the "show me state" and had to see it myself. It is great, food is good, service is friendly and attentive.... More

I like "hole in the wall" places, however, this is smoky and dirty to the extreme. The food is decent but the gross surroundings are distracting. Service is okay. I probably won't go back unless a friend specifically requests that we meet there. There are plenty of other options in this price range that are actually worth your time.

The good was delicious. The stinky entry full of smoke and cheap cleaner was unpleasant. Floor is unstable. Back room was smoke free and ok. So go for the food!

We stopped in on a Saturday night in prime dinner time and only had a 5 minute or less wait. Probably because they pack you in pretty tight so you just seem a little smothered. It also made it very noisy. Besides that though the food was very good the staff were friendly and did a good job. Recommend if... More

I recently moved to Cape Girardeau. This is one of our favorite restaurants here. I have been to New Orleans quite a few times, but the gumbo at Broussard's is the best I have ever had. The service is always excellent and staff always friendly. Great atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

Smokey bar. Southern food. Lots of beer. If you want the Cajun cuisine, this is the place to go. The cat fish isn't bad and you get big portions on all the plates. Worth the go!

After a walk by the river, Stopped in at the bar for an adult beverage and appetizer in the late afternoon. It appeared to be shift change but we were served by a fun, enthusiastic bartender on her first shift as a bartender. She did a fantastic job and made for a pleasant visit. Unique Art Deco bar with friendly... More

Really cool place to try out if you've never been here. they serve all kinds of meats like frog legs, alligator, and much more. If you can come on the special nights if a little better on the wallet but not to bad anyways.
