Three of us had lunch at Boudreaux's, ordering crawfish étouffée, shrimp étouffée, and a catfish po boy. The shrimp étouffée had good flavor, but skimpy amount of shrimp. The crawfish étouffée had plenty of crawfish and tasted just like New Orleans to me. The catfish po boy had an ample amount of fish but too much dry breading. The decor... More

We dined with about 25 other St Joseph Chapter, Northwest Missouri State U alums. We were served by a very friendly and efficient person. Vickie was friendly, smiled and was simply excellent. Many times with this size group the entrees come out and the server has to ask who ordered which item. Not so with Vickie! The food came out... More

Fun atmosphere, nice waiters who were not annoying, and my jambalaya was absolutely delicious! Their salads with house dressing were also excellent. The bar was right in the dining area so it just seemed to add to the pleasant atmosphere.

I got the shrimp po'boy and the combination appetizer for a group of people from work. The appetizer was okay. I wasn't too impressed. The po'boy had hardly anything on the sandwich and just wasn't very good. The service was pretty good though.

Kansas City doesn't have a really good Louisiana food restaurant so we drive 100 miles on occasion to Boudreaux's in St, Joe for our Cajun fix. The food is really good and our friend who is from Louisianns vouches that their food is the real deal. It is in an historic building and it, and the bar, comes with a... More

Looked forward to trying this place, based on the TA reviews. The restaurant is in a great location, and has the feel of some of the restaurants that we have enjoyed in New Orleans. I decided to go with the top item on the menu, the broiled seafood platter, which was recommended by my waitress. Unfortunately, I decided to order... More

I've loved this place since college. Their Cajun chicken po'boy is my favorite with a side of their awesome onion rings.

One of the top places to eat in Saint Joseph. Boudreaux's is a nice change of pace from all of the other restaurants in St. Joseph.
