This is great food!

I love the food here. It is consistently great with the right amount of spices. The old building is great, I just wish it was a bit cleaner.

I always get the red beans and rice--very good. Also, I get the delicious house dressing on the side for my salad; that way, I can use it to dip bread or crackers in. Broussards has been one of my favorite restaurants for over 20 years. Occasionally, I will get a meal which is a little inconsistent, but not often.

Broussard's provides a solid (not great) opportunity to experience authentic cajun food 600 miles from the source. Great laid back atmosphere in the LA tradition. Fun bar.

I live local and come to Broussard's once a month or so. The service is always good, the food fresh and hot, and the drinks cold and plentiful. My family, including the kids, love the catfish. It's fried to crispy on the outside and flaky inside. The coating is well seasoned. The fries have a nice seasoning on them as... More

We followed trip advisor to Broussard's and it was good. I had the 1/2 and 1/2 with crawfish etoufee and fried gator. I've had gator lots and this was this was the best I have had. I really enjoyed the house dressing on my salad as well. Sunday night was slow but service was great.

Here I was in southeastern Missouri and there I see a Cajun restaurant. Had to check this place out. Was a fabulous place to get a big helping of Shrimp Etouffee. The heat was flavorful and the shrimp were small but plenty of them. I will go back next time I am in Cape G

Because of rave reviews, ordered the chicken etoufee and salad special. Would have liked less heat with more color and flavor. Spouse had the shrimp po-boy with fries and pronounced it as good or better, at much lower price than what we just had in South Florida. Agree with another reviewer that 2nd hand smoke is a problem. It's a... More

The food here is incredible! You can't find a better place to eat in the area IMO. The only disappointment me and the family had is smoking is allowed in the restaurant. As soon as you walk in the door you're in the smoking section by the bar. Next time we visit the area we will probably just do take... More

This is a great place to eat Cajun or anything else. The red beans & rice was wonderful, the seafood gumbo was to die for, big ole hunk of cornbread, and a salad that was out of this world. On top of this was the scrumptious bread pudding served HOT! Bread pudding is a rare treat for me and they... More

We have eaten at this restaurant twice and both times the food was above average. It isn't quite as flavorful as some Cajun cuisine I have had in southern Louisiana but better than anything else is southeast Missouri. It is worth the visit.
